Robert De Niro says life for Americans during the Trump presidency is like "living in an abusive household."
 
"It's a really, really serious situation we're in," the "Irishman" star said in a Monday interview on CBS's "The Late Show."
 
"It's like a pall around certain things," De Niro — who's called Trump the "jerk-off in chief" and a "f------ fool" — told host Stephen ColbertStephen Tyrone ColbertColbert implores Pelosi to update 'weaponry' in SCOTUS fight: 'Trump has a literal heat ray' The Hill's Morning Report - Sponsored by Facebook - Washington on edge amid SCOTUS vacancy Juan Williams: Democrats need to bury their divisions MORE. "It's like living in an abusive household. You feel you don't know what's going to happen next, what crazy thing is going to happen next, what's going to make you say what the hell's going on?"
 
"He's a fake president," the 76-year-old Academy Award winner continued of Trump.
 
"He calls everything fake because he knows he's fake. So he's projecting."

"He's an adult. He's a grownup," De Niro, a New York native, said of Bloomberg.
 
"He's run the city for 12 years. I know there are things he did, you mentioned them on the show. But he's done good things. And he tries to do the right thing," De Niro added. 
 
"We just have to get past this — get over the hump into calm waters. So to me Bloomberg might be the one," De Niro said.
