Robert De Niro: Trump 'Wouldn't Last Long' in 'Real Gangster World'
The anti-trump actor says the president could never be a 'real' criminal
Just when you thought Anti-Trump actor Robert De Niro had gotten bored with bashing the president, the actor who regularly portrays "mobsters" in films, claimed that President Donald Trump wouldn’t cut it as a real gangster.
But De Niro's claim that Trump could never be a “real” criminal, ironically makes him look far worse than the president.
De Niro began his usual anti-Trump drivel while appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Saturday.
Anti-Trump host Joy Reid tried to compare Trump to comic book character “The Joker,” as well as a gangster, which didn't go down too well with De Niro.
Addressing Reid’s seeming comparison, De Niro said, “I have no idea why they follow him,” speaking of Trump's supporters.
“I think in the real gangster world, he wouldn’t last long. He lasts long in his own little real estate world, where he’s the boss because he’s the boss and he inherited all that money, and he’s a fool," De Niro sneered.
"In the real world, he wouldn’t last long. That’s my feeling.”
But as De Niro is a sheltered Hollywood actor, it begs the question, what does he know about “real” gangsters?
The actor conveniently forgot he called Trump a "gangster" last month.

Appearing on the BBC talk show ‘The Graham Norton Show,” he said:
“I don’t want him to die; I want him to go to jail.”
“Today, we have a weird, twisted president who thinks he’s a gangster, who’s not even a very good gangster … Gangsters have honor, you shake a hand, and they have your word, and you have theirs, and that’s it. But with this guy, it’s not the case.”
Last month, De Niro dropped multiple f-bombs while speaking with CNN's Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources."
Speaking about the impeachment inquiry initiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over President Trump’s July phone call with Ukraine, De Niro said it “has to happen."
