Robert De Niro To GOP, Donald Trump: ‘How Dare You!’
In a conversation dedicated to his movies, Robert De Niro took a few moments to talk about the real life melodrama happening in Washington, DC.
The Oscar-winning actor sat down with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams in a special live conversation at the Tribeca Film Fest in New York on Saturday night, discussing his parade of legendary films, visions for future products and even his myriad “Saturday Night Live’ hosting gigs over the last three decades. But it was when De Niro, a longtime political activist and outspoken liberal, got into current events that he really made headlines.
Discussing the recently averted — for now — government shutdown, De Niro expressed disgust with what he considers games being played by politicians, especially the Republicans, and the political jockeying’s impact on working Americans.
