100 thoughts on “Robert De Niro On Trump: Even Gangsters Have Morals

  1. I don't really care about Trump. But I hate these rich , uneducated, Hollytards telling honest hard working Americans how and what to think.

    SOB here is anti gun and anti violence but made his whole career playing gangsters in movies.

  2. Why would anyone listen to someone from hollywood regarding a moral argument? hollywood is the most fictional, morally bankrupt, group that has ever been created. hollywood has caused more 'deaths' than any entity in the US.

  3. What is it about American audiences never know when to stop applauding. Endless shouting and whistling? We want to hear Mr De Niro not your pathetic screeching …

  4. This child molester should be in prison for his crimes against children ! He was a regular on pedo island 🌴! No wonder he hates trump !

  5. Always having a go at Trump. He did well with the economy, didn't start any wars, we are seeing more of the truth about what technologies the US have and more on the alien issue. He did not kill his own people in a false flag event in order to invade sovereign countries and kill innocent people. He is not perfect. He could have pardoned Snowden for telling the truth which is what Jesus and our mothers taught us to do. He could also have dropped the case against Julian Assange, again for telling the truth. He could have had the Clintons arrested for all their crimes along with Bush, Obama and their cronies (that may still happen). Bush stole the office of President from Gore and nothing happened? Trump was elected by the people and just like the crap the Brexiteers in the UK get for wanting freedom from the dictatorship of the EU, the Democratic moaners are still moaning 3 years after the event!

  6. Evidently it’s all of those statistics in his T HEAD to the how many people he gets the arena as versus someone like Robert De Niro or someone else he knows And who knows if they had enough room in an arena for those guys

  7. I used to like Deniro. I think though that actors shouldn't use their fame to air their distaste of our dually elected leaders.

  8. I’m in my 20’s but I’d still let Robert De Niro rail me like the train in the Bye Bye man movie…goddamn

  9. He’s right , he got a chance and he’s the most racist , incompetent and of course narcissist person we may encounter

  10. tell me exactly robert what you really meant by saying " say hello to my little friend " ? jeffrey epstein has some freaky footage of you i just saw!!

  11. It is sad when an actor starts to believe he really is a though guy? so sad to see dementia set in on an early age of what was a great actor tears ago so sad

  12. People in Hollywood have a tough time earning huge incomes by pretending for a living, and then…. to make the effort to return to reality outside of the industry. When you have to be great at your craft of acting, it makes living your own perspective harder to mature in the world outside of that industry, since you get surrounded by the widely held views of those around you.. A well known perspective in his acting persona is to say… 'I'M NOT HAPPY" WE CERTAINLY BELIEVE HIM.
    As many others… based on their own statements, De Niro ought to stick to living illusions and forget projecting his own into the world, because it will only hurt his credibility as a person, based on the views of the rest of the planet, especially by the vast majority that LIKE WHAT TRUMP HAS ACCOMPLISHED ! Maybe even his acting too, because people will genuinely dislike him for the delusions he puts out into the media every chance he gets.

  13. Well. The VERY REAL Trump curse will visit Robert. I absolutely loved his acting. But no more. Not one dime.

  14. Projection, does anyone in hollyweird have anything else to talk about, except your great elected President. Old, old. I'm sure there is a jumpsuit with his sheep number on it.

  15. I think Mr Robert was asking for coffee in the first seconds he came in ..is that mine…no anwer for the host …let me know what u think . Lol awesome ..

  16. De Niro is a GREAT actor but he believes his own crap in describing Trump. He should stick to movies. Typical dumb American audience applauding an actor's opinion.

  17. Gonna take in De Niro . . .
    Then I'm goin' back to the box for today!
    I'm takin' a 'Taxi, driver'!
    Not really . . . we don't need one here . . .
    You can walk town end to end in 30 minutes or less, depending on how fast you can walk.

  18. Haven't watch anything yet but intuitively because of the title there should be a new official party called the CENTER!!

  19. DeZero looks ten years older these days. TDS has been rough on ol "Bob". Hollywood has been's still trying to stay relevant regardless if the rest of couldn't give a shit what that loser has to say.

  20. Robert De Niro is one of the greatest actors of all time. but is he being real or just acting like he cares about what bad guys do.. Im sure he has been exposed in his lifetime other real bad guys. like from where he grew up in NYC… You mean to tell me there hasn't been other opportunities for him to be a social crusader for good.. Now he's grandstanding about trump. How about reaching out to the DEA and asking them who's the top ten importers (cartels/organized crime) of Cocaine and Heroine into this country.. and go after them and put the handcuffs and orange jumpsuits those bad guys. The damage that drug addiction does to our youth and fixing it should be at the top of the list of his priorities.. Trump may not be ideal but lets get serious about some real issues that are really messing up this country… just my opinion

  21. Then that certainly makes gangsters better people than democrats. Any people performing a coup of the government, dissolving our borders for the sake of drug/child smugglers and banning free speech/press certainly take a back seat to murderers, kidnappers and thieves.

  22. So unexpected; De Niro said something anti-Trump on Colbert and the seals clapped. And he tied it in with gangsters. So original for De Niro to do that. And the most surprising thing is De Niro’s comments make him sound exactly like the dumb person he was always rumoured to be. Daring, bold, surprising…

  23. No one brought Robert any water! Were they not paying attention! Some bodies not paying attention! Hire me I'd be on my JOB!

  24. deniro your jealous of Trump. If you were to fight one on one with Trump he'd put you down in seconds. I was a fan of deniro, now no respect for an old jealous man.

  25. Robert deniro and Martin Scorsese were the two that began the initial start of today's modern day Mass killings, child perceived porn-#Metoo movement, Jodi Foster (14yo prostitute)..a violent and distorted movie- "Taxi Driver"……Watch it and make up your own opinion. These two are SICK individuals!!!

  26. bob I will all ways love your films….hands down…yeah he doesn't have your back (trump)…his-they might fuck up your associates…. are they untouchable ??? ..as for your one the best actors in my lifetime

  27. Let’s remind the world what happened when Trump said he had mafia ties back in the 80s and 90s…The Mafia said they won’t ever do business with him or have any connections at all – They literally made those announcements to news outlets. They hate him.
    I also live by this rule: if Robert Dinero doesn’t like you – you probably suck!
