Robert De Niro just couldn’t help himself…He stood up to speak to a room full of proud students and totally hijacked the moment with a vulgar rant against President Trump. The room was a mix of proud parents, young children and teens who came to enjoy the Rosemary Breslin American Writer Award in New York.
Page Six reports:
Hundreds of high-school seniors submitted non-fiction, “New York-centered” stories employing the short sentences and original angles favored by the late newspaper columnist, Jimmy Breslin, whose family established the contest.
Little did they know that the 72-year old actor would deliver a foul-mouthed rant against our president. This is the definition of unhinged!
“What does the truth even mean today? I mean, if you’re Donald Trump it doesn’t mean anything. If you’re cowardly Republican enablers in Congress you don’t let the truth stand in the way of pathetically clinging to power,” he said as the audience laughed and applauded. “Our country is led by a president who believes he can make up his own truth. And we have a word for that — bullshit.”
The profanity continued…
Gateway Pundit reports:
The 72-year-old Godfather star argued Trump’s mental health makes him unfit for office.
“You might say, as have many professionals, that Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of discharging duties of the President of the United States,” he said. That he’s afflicted with a narcissistic personality disorder.”
“We’re in a dangerous situation… with Hitler, with other despots, people didn’t take them seriously, they laughed at them,” he remarked. “And then what happened, they turned around and it was too late. We can’t let that happen in this country and you guys are the ones to do it.”
Some members of the audience continued to cheer as De Niro slighted the president. But others were turned off.
“Inappropriate,” one woman could be heard interjecting. “What does this have to do with the kids?”
