Now that President Donald Trump has been impeached his mortal enemies are flailing, looking around for some more mud to throw. Actor Robert De Niro has come up with a brilliant idea. Throw some poo.
The consternated actor must have seen the latest numbers from the CNN/SSRS poll that shows, in the words of CNN political analyst Harry Enten, “massive movement towards the president.”
De Niro joined liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore on his newly launched podcast, Rumble with Michael Moore for an hour-long Trump bash-a-thon on Friday.
“I’d like to see a bag of shit right in his face. Hit him right in the face like that, and let the picture go all over the world. And that would be the most humiliating thing,” said De Niro, hoping to one-up impeachment.
“He needs to be humiliated. He needs to be confronted, and he needs to be humiliated by whoever his political opponent is.”
The frustrated actor said, “I always say lowlife because he’s a lowlife. He’s not a pig. I used to call him a pig, but pigs have dignity. He has no dignity, no nothing. He’s a disgrace to the human race, if you will.”
The Oscar winner has been a virulent critic of Trump since he announced his 2016 campaign. He has often humiliated himself in the process of trying to demean and insult the president with his vulgar, juvenile attacks. He is famous for becoming unhinged in 2018, yelling “F*** Trump!” during the Tony Awards.
“There has not been one thing about this person that has been redeeming, as far as I can see. Nothing,” said the actor. “For the Republicans who have fallen in line with him, I don’t understand it. It’s a disgrace. It’s beyond a disgrace. Shame on them. Shame on all of them.”
He also told Moore that he’d like to see Trump in prison but predicted there would ultimately be “no redemption” for the president. “There are consequences for misbehavior,” he said.
People like De Niro are the reason the Democratic Party has found itself in a quandary: out of aces, clinging to its past impeachment glory, and refusing to send over the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial. They have no follow-up act in sight.
The possibly psychotic star also appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources in September, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced the beginning of the impeachment inquiry, telling host Brian Stelter, “This guy should not be president, period.”
He launched into profane invectives when Stelter dared to mention critics who think he should stay out of politics.
“F*** ‘em,” he said of his critics, while pointing his fingers. “F*** ‘em.”
“This is cable, so it’s not an FCC violation, but it is still a Sunday morning,” Stelter said. “Why do you choose to go that way?”
“We are in a moment in our lives, in this country, where this guy is like a gangster,” De Niro said. “He’s come along and he’s said things, done things. We’re in a terrible situation. We’re in a terrible situation. And this guy just keeps going on and on and on without being stopped.”
He confessed to Rumble host Micheal Moore: “I really wanted to say ‘f *** Fox.’ … This guy [Trump] takes his marching orders from them, in some ways. This is disgraceful. This is Rupert Murdoch. This is what he came to this country to give us.”
De Niro also plays Trump’s nemesis, former special counsel Robert Mueller, on NBC’s Saturday Night Live — not his most brilliant work. Hopefully he doesn’t expect any Emmys for his boring performance. It’s easy for De Niro to talk tough and make threats from a distance. Maybe the Secret Service should pay him a visit.
