The actor also called the president a buffoon, racist, huckster, scam artist and fascist
Robert Di Niro has never been shy with his feelings about President Donald Trump, and in a new interview with the Guardian published on Sunday, he is still throwing barbs at the man in the White House.
Here are just a few of the insulting names he called Trump in his latest critique: a buffoon, con artist, huckster, scam artist, fascist, racist and white supremacist. To name a few.
“I’m older now and I’m just upset about what’s going on,” De Niro told the Guardian’s David Smith. “When you see someone like [Trump] becoming president, I thought, well, OK, let’s see what he does—maybe he’ll change. But he just got worse. It showed me that he is a real racist. I thought maybe as a New Yorker he understands the diversity in the city but he’s as bad as I thought he was before—and much worse. It’s a shame. It’s a bad thing in this country.”
When Smith asked if De Niro thought Trump was a white supremacist, he immediately replied, “Yes.” Is Trump a fascist? “I guess that’s what it leads to. If he had his way, we’d wind up in a very bad state in this country. I mean, the way I understand it, they laughed at Hitler. They all look funny. Hitler looked funny, Mussolini looked funny and other dictators and despots look funny.”
