Robert De Niro Drops F-Bombs While Attacking Trump on CNN
Liberal actor takes aim at president while talking about impeachment
Vocal anti-Trump actor Robert De Niro dropped multiple f-bombs while speaking with CNN's Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” on Sunday.
The actor's comments echoed what he told Variety at the New York Film Festival over the weekend where he expressed hope that President Trump would face impeachment.
“Too many people are too gentle and genteel about it. And we’re in a crisis situation, period,” De Niro said.
“I don’t think he’s capable of resigning. He will say it’s rigged or this or that. The day after he was elected, I said, well, give him a chance. You never know. You will see. But he is the – he’s worse than I ever could have imagined.”
“What is the primary critique or objection,” Stelter asked.
“I think he’s crazy in a way. Just crazy. Andy Rudy, who was just on, apologizing for him, is disgraceful,” De Niro replied.
“I mean, if it wasn’t for you, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, where are we? It’s a crazy world. What is going on? This guy is crazy. We gotta get him out.”
“Do you mean in a medical sense?” Stelter asked.
“Possibly medically, too, I’m starting to think. I didn’t think that before. When I saw him out front of the helicopter, waiting to go somewhere, and talking endlessly, and sweating and sweating. There’s just something very strange about that,” said De Niro.

De Niro then added that he believed that Trump might be sincerely crazy while the pundits over at Fox News putting on an act.
“And when you say that, folks on Fox come after you. I remember The Tony’s when you got up there and cursed,” Stelter said.
De Niro dropped then dropped the big ones.
"F*** em!” De Niro interjected. “F*** em!”
The actor issued a rather mild apology after r Stelter politely scolded De Niro for his foul language.
“We are in a moment in our lives, in this country, where this guy is like a gangster,” he said.
“This is terrible. We’re in a terrible situation. We’re in a terrible situation. And this guy just keeps going on and on without being stopped.”
Last year, De Niro used a star-studded Hollywood award ceremony to attack President Donald Trump with foul language.
While De Niro presented Billy Crystal with the Friars Club’s entertainment icon award last year in New York City, the star first shouted, “F— Crystal!” as a wink to his condemnation of Trump at the Tony Awards earlier this year.
“I just get so upset with that jerkoff in the White House,” he said, drawing boos from the crowd.
“Boo is right! Down with this motherf—er!”
