“I’d like to punch Donald Trump in the face.” – Robert De Niro
A Brief One from Doug Draper
Posted October 9th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
I knew there was a reason why Robert De Niro is one of my all-time favourite actors!
For a campaign launched by a group of American celebrities called ‘Vote Your Future’, Robert De Niro offered a video that has him punching with words to lay a Jake LaMotta-like beating on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“He’s so blatantly stupid,” says the 73-year-old Academy Award winning actor of Trump in the video. “He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig. He’s a con, a bulls–t artist, a mutt. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He’s an idiot. Colin Powell said it best: He’s a national disaster.”
The De Niro video was initially rejected as too hard-hitting and punchy for a campaign that is mainly aimed at encouraging citizens of all political stripes to vote in the coming November 8th U.S. elections. But with Trump continuing to say and do things that are so outrageously sexist, racist and zenophobic – not to mention so blantantly false – the producers of the campaign changed have changed there mind and put the video out.
