Robert De Niro Calls Trump a “Motherfucker” and I Think we Can All Agree

Yesterday we told you at John Oliver basically destroyed Dustin Hoffman over his sexual assault allegations during a Q&A for the 20th anniversary screening of Wag the Dog. That was awesome, but something else happened that was equally great.

Robert De Niro, who produced and starred in Wag the Dog, was also at the Q&A that went down at the 92nd Street Y. While there, De Niro pictured what a sequel of the film might look like, and he said it would certainly be based on the political climate of today:

“Well if I did a sequel I would just document everything that’s going on today. You couldn’t make it up, and we all know that. It would be beyond our wildest expectations, if you will, or imagination. It’s beyond. That’s what we would do, and that’s what will be done. Movies will be done later about this period in American history that is so deplorable and awful and fucked up — excuse my French.”

De Niro was then asked who would play Trump, to which he responded:

“You know, I love Alec Baldwin. He’s great in the Saturday Night Live thing, but in all seriousness, that’s another one that depends — it’s a different thing because Trump is so deplorable. You don’t want somebody — I don’t want to say to give sympathy but I’m sure he himself has sympathy within his existence. I know he’s not a total awful person that I know he is. But he has a family and there are probably people there, his daughter, his son, love him or are loyal or are obligated to whatever. But he is a — he’s a classic potentially dangerous fascist leader. Period. It’s that simple. I’m sure Hitler was loved by somebody in his family. And this Donald Trump is a motherfucker.”

TRUE.
