Every time Robert De Niro swears at Trump on TV, it strengthens Trump. Every time Samantha Bee goes on an unhinged rant against Ivanka, new Trump supporters are created. Left wing director Rob Reiner has finally figured this out.
The Hill reports:
Rob Reiner denounces Robert De Niro, celebrities for anti-Trump remarks
Director Rob Reiner denounced Robert De Niro and other celebrities for their remarks against President Trump, saying it only helps the president.
During an exclusive interview with The Hill’s new TV show “Rising,” which aired on Wednesday, Reiner addressed the controversy surrounding actor Robert De Niro’s “F—Trump” speech during the Tony Awards on Sunday.
De Niro called the president a “f—ing idiot” and a “f—ing fool,” which was met with a standing ovation.
“You’re helping Trump by saying ‘F— Trump,’ because he can say ‘look at these people, these elitists,’ ” Reiner told “Rising” co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton.
Reiner said he thinks celebrities are ultimately hurting Democrats when they go on expletive-ridden rants against Trump.
“There’s a very fine line between energizing the base and energizing the other side,” Reiner said.
It’s probably already too late for Reiner and his Hollywood comrades to begin learning this lesson.
Everyone already knows where they stand.
