Robert De Niro Tells ‘The View’ It’s ‘Nuts’ That Giuliani Once Prosecuted The Mob And Now Represents Trump’s ‘Mob Family’

While appearing on ABC’s “The View” on Friday, Hollywood star Robert De Niro had yet another meltdown against President Donald Trump, this time describing his family as a “mob family.”

“I wanted to ask you about Giuliani because Rudy Giuliani is still trying to fight the results in court with ridiculous claims,” cohost Sunny Hostin said. “Yesterday he quoted My Cousin Vinny in a press conference. Earlier this week, he claimed the mafia of Democrats rigged the votes for Biden. Giuliani used to prosecute actual mob bosses in the ’80s in federal court. What happened to him?”

De Niro’s hatred for Trump and everyone associated with him came through loud and clear in his response.

“I know. I know. He’s the one who was prosecuting under the RICO Act the way I understand it, and now he’s representing a mob family. It’s crazy. It’s crazy,” De Niro said. “I don’t know what happened to him. I feel bad for him.”

“Why do you think he would do this?” Hostin asked.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

“I think just for the attention, maybe desperation, maybe whatever else,” De Niro replied. “That’s the only way. I can’t understand because it’s just as easy to say, ‘Look. I can’t buy into this. I can’t go along with this. It’s over. I’m out.’ He would have so much respect, and people would hire him and want to hire him, and he’s gone this other way. It’s just nuts.”

This comes one week after De Niro shamed the millions of Americans who voted for President Donald Trump.

“I’m not like political, but I was so angry and so enraged and confounded that he would actually behave the way he did and that people bought it,” he said.

“I now I see many many many people in the country feel this way,” De Niro added. “I’m sad about other people who don’t. They are accepted him and would have voted for him and have voted for him. I don’t know why. That’s all that it was from the very beginning. How could this guy behave this way? That’s all.”
