Robert De Niro is once again making headlines for another takedown of Donald Trump, this time after an appearance on BBC Newsnight.
The two time Oscar winning actor appeared via satellite to discuss the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, which has so far claimed the lives of over 80,000 Americans.
Unsurprisingly, given his low opinion of Trump and his government, De Niro didn’t hold back when saying his piece on how the former Apprentice host has handled the escalation of the virus.
Appearing via satellite, the star of Goodfellas, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver and Godfather II described Trump as a ‘lunatic’ and said the President ‘doesn’t care’ how many people die.
When challenged about his statement, De Niro doubled down, saying “No, he doesn’t care. The people he pretends to care for are the people he has the most disdain for, because he could care less about them. They might like to tell themselves that or delude themselves, but he doesn’t care about them.”
Recently, before the pandemic took hold of the entire world, claiming well over a quarter of a million lives in the process and infecting more than three million people, De Niro had ripped into Trump and Fox News during a gloriously foul mouthed Sunday morning appearance on CNN.
God bless Bobby D and his Sunday morning F-Bombs. A true artist.
