WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- In a first podcast appearance, Robert de Niro, who is no fan of President Trump, lambasted him and said that he should be hit with a bag of s—t and let the world know about it.
- Taking his criticisms to new extremes, the Oscar-winning actor also called the president and the GOP defending him a disgrace to the human race.
- Previously, the actor said he wanted to punch Trump in the face after calling him a ‘pig’ and a ‘national disaster’.
Oscar-winning actor Robert de Niro said Friday that President Donald Trump needs to be humiliated and that he’d like a “bag of s—t” to be thrown straight at his face.
The “Irishman” actor unleashed his criticisms of Mr. Trump to a new level in his first-ever podcast appearance alongside documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, who is no Trump fan either. The strange proclamation on the podcast was released on Friday.
The star also said that he was angrier than ever about Trump being the president and also criticized the president’s GOP defenders calling them “beyond disgrace.”
During the podcast, when talk turned to the 76-year-old’s previous statement that he wanted to punch Trump in the face, De Niro told Moore about his gross fantasy of seeing a bag of s—t right in his face.
“Hit him right in the face like that and let the picture go all over the world. That would be the most humiliating thing because he needs to be humiliated,” said de Niro while making a smacking sound in his hands.
Moore added telling the actor: “It would kind of feel-good to punch him — not hurt him — but just punch him in the face.”
In a 2016 video where De Niro slammed then-candidate Trump, aside from saying he wanted to hit him in the face, he also called Mr. Trump names including, “a punk,” “a pig,” “a mutt” and a “national disaster”.
