De Niro: Trump needs to be ‘confronted and humiliated’
Award-winning actor Robert De Niro, a vocal critic of President Trump, went after the president once again Friday, saying that Trump needs to be “confronted and humiliated.”
“He needs to be confronted and humiliated by whoever his opponent is, his political opponent,” De Niro told acclaimed filmmaker Michael Moore on his new podcast “Rumble with Michael Moore.”
“They have to stand up to him,” the 76-year-old added. “They don’t have to do it in an obvious physical way, but they have to have the formidability to confront him and to put him in his place, because the people have to see that, to see him be humiliated.”
De Niro also said that he wants to “see a bag of shit right in his face.”
Additionally, the longtime actor had words for the Republican lawmakers who have continued to support Trump during the impeachment process.
“For the Republicans who have fallen in line with him … I don’t understand that,” he told Moore. “It’s a disgrace. It’s beyond a disgrace. Shame on them. Shame on all of them.”
Continuing, De Niro said “these people like [Sen.] Lindsey Graham [R-S.C.] and this [House Minority Leader Kevin] McCarthy [R-Calif.] and these other ones, and [acting White House cheif of staff Mick] Mulvaney who said all these things about his children and not someone like Trump … doing such a turnaround. What is that? I don’t understand that. That’s frightening.”
