Robert de Niro was asked to film a video for the #VoteYourFuture initiative. The Oscar Award winning actor used the opportunity to rip into Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump with such ferocity that the producers decided it would be best to release the clip separately on Friday, October 7th.
“He’s so blatantly stupid,” de Niro says of Trump. “He’s a punk. He’s a dog. He’s a pig. He’s a con … a bullshit artist. A mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care. Thinks he’s gaming society. Doesn’t pay his taxes, he’s an idior. Colin Powell said it best, he’s a national disaster. He’s an embarrassment to this country,” de Niro continued. “It makes me so angry this country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has. He talks how he wants to punch people in the face. Well, I’d like to punch him in the face. This is somebody that we want for president? I don’t think so.”
