Robert de Niro Blasts Trump: He's a 'Nasty Little B**ch' and a 'Petulant Little Punk'
Actor declares he would never agree to play Trump in a film
Liberal anti-Trump actor Robert de Niro attacked President Donald Trump, calling him a “nasty little b**ch” before vowing never to play the president on-screen during an interview on Saturday.
In an interview with the New York Times, de Niro declared he would never agree to play Trump in a film because he believes he is an “awful person” with “nothing redeemable about him.”
“Trump has people who follow him who are crazy and want to do crazy things," De Niro said.
"What we’re doing in film, it’s like a dream. We know it’s not real,” the 76-year-old added.
“There are people who will take anything to be real and that we have no control over.”
“The president is supposed to set an example of trying to do the right thing. Not be a nasty little bitch."
"Because that’s what he is. He’s a petulant little punk,” he fumed.
“There’s not one thing that I see in him or his family, not any redeeming qualities. They’re out on the take. It’s like a gangster family.”
Last month, the actor touted Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg as capable of winning the White House in 2020.
“Buttigieg, I like a lot,” De Niro said, according to The Daily Beast.

“He’s got all the credentials—Rhodes Scholar, Afghanistan veteran—even though he’s young, and if he could get a chance, it could be something special, I think.”
“As a gay person, he’s someone who comes from a marginalized community, so people from other ethnic groups can identify with him, even if they’re not gay, because they know what it’s like,” De Niro added.
In October, de Niro said he couldn't wait to see Trump in jail during the BBC talk show ‘The Graham Norton Show."
“Oh, I can’t wait to see him in jail,” De Niro said regarding impeachment.
“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.”
