Yowzers, the liberals continue to show just how classy they are, huh? Robert De Niro is quite the popular actor, but I wonder how much of his fanbase was alienated as he attacked President Trump during an awards speech.
De Niro is not new to name calling when it comes to Trump. However, in all honesty, it just reflects on the ugly person he is on the inside.

De Niro was discussing the film “The Post” – about the Pentagon Papers published in the early 1970s – and heaping praise on actress Meryl Streep.
He said that at the time of Watergate, Trump was waived from military service due to “suffering from bone spurs.”
“Now we’re suffering from the real Donald Trump,” De Niro continued, “It’s the emperor’s new clothes, the guy is a f*****g fool – come on!”
He later referred to Trump as the “J*****f-In-Chief” and appeared to compare him to the volleyball “Wilson” in the Tom Hanks film “Cast Away.”
De Niro said the “The Post” portrayed President Richard Nixon as “bats*** [expletive] crazy” and called such a presidency the “good old days” with Trump now in the White House.
Jesse Watters criticized De Niro on “The Five,” saying he was “speak[ing] like a 17-year-old” and ruining his reputation as a classic actor.
