When it comes to Trump Derangement Syndrome, there are few people in Hollywood with a more serious case than Robert De Niro. Trump clearly lives rent-free in the actor’s head.
We know this becaise almost every time De Niro speaks in public, he uses it as an opportunity to bash the president. He just did it again recently.
The Hill reports:
De Niro: Imprisoning Trump would make America great again
Robert De Niro says the way to “make America great again” is by imprisoning President Trump.
The two-time Oscar winner was honoring this year’s recipients of the American Icon Awards in Los Angeles, including boxer Evander Holyfield, Al Pacino and music producer Quincy Jones, among others.
In remarks to the crowd, in video first published by TMZ.com, De Niro called the honorees “people of great individual accomplishments who give us examples to look up to. They’ve earned our respect and admiration, and they deserve it.”
“On the other hand, the individual who currently purports to lead America is not worthy of any tribute,” added De Niro as some applause and jeers are heard among the audience.
“Unless you think of his impeachment and imprisonment as a sort of tribute,” the frequent Trump critic continued.
“Now that’s how you can make America great again.”
De Niro has proven to be one of Hollywood’s most vocal opponents of Trump. Last month, during an appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show,” he dubbed the commander in chief a “total loser.” He’s also called Trump a “real racist” and a “pig” and said during the 2016 White House race that he wanted to “punch” him in the face.

Some people were pretty unimpressed with De Niro’s comments:
#RobertDeNiro is not an actor, in every single role, he plays himself. Half his career was spent playing low lives and gangsters. So who exactly is the wannabe gangster? What a loon. #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder

I never liked Robert DeNiro and I never will. He’s classless and obsessed with the President. Just not normal🤦🏻♀️

Hard to argue with that last point.
