The once revered actor Robert De Niro has been slipping into senility in recent years, or so it would seem. The guy has taken great umbrage at the fact that Trump is now our president, taking every opportunity he gets to trash him.
For some reason, the actor was invited to speak at a global gathering of public officials and the elite in the Arab Gulf. Shocking no one, he used his time to attack the president without a sense of irony about who he was talking to and where he was saying it.
As reported at the Daily Mail, while speaking at a Dubai’s World Government Summit in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, De Niro told the many Middle Eastern audience members that he as visiting from a “backward” country suffering from “temporary insanity.” Nothing like a celebrity trashing the US as backward in front of a bunch of Muslim elites in an Islamic country.
While speaking, De Niro expressed particular anger over the Trump administration’s climate change policy, lamenting that in his country, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency suggested last week that global warming may be a good thing for humanity.
“I am talking about my own country, the United States of America. We don’t like to say we are a ‘backward’ country so let’s just say we’re suffering from a case of temporary insanity,” he added.
De Niro received applause and laughs when he said the US “will eventually cure itself by voting our dangerous leader” out of office.
De Niro has been attacking Trump non-stop with expletive-laden rants, with one of his most mature insults calling Trump a “f—ing fool” during a speech introducing Meryl Streep at the National Board of Review awards gala in January.
De Niro’s career has been in the gutter for some time now, so it seems he’s taking advantage of Trump Derangement Syndrome and trying to earn social capital by bravely slandering the president. Unfortunately for him, no amount of name-calling or whining is going to revive a career that’s been six feet under for over well over a decade.
