Robert De Niro is #WithHer in a big way.
The Hollywood icon we all love to see on the big screen play the tough mobster, is now getting tough on Donald Trump.
In a video that aired this past Friday on Megyn Kelly’s “The Kelly File,” the Raging Bull actor told viewers that he would “like to punch him in the face.” Him being Donald Trump.
De Niro’s remarks came in a video produced by Anonymous Content, which has been making a series of short interviews for a voter initiative called #VoteYourFuture. The director of De Niro’s video, Tom McCarthy, asked him, “What do you care about?”
De Niro’s anti-Trump remarks were so emphatic that the producers concluded that it could not be part of the campaign, which is non-partisan. But it was given to Kelly’s show for airing and publicists for the production firm released it to the media on Friday.
In the video, De Niro also calls Trump “blatantly stupid,” “a punk” and a “bulls–t artist.”
The De Niro remarks were filmed before Friday, when the Washington Post released a 2005 video in which Trump is caught making lewd comments to “Access Hollywood” co-anchor Billy Bush.
De Niro’s tough talk comes on the back of Hollywood celebrities openly endorsing Hillary Clinton in a video supporting the Democratic nominee, and urging the peasant class in America to vote for the woman who will make sure the Hollywood elite will continue to be pampered and coddled.
