Robert De Niro: ‘We Have a Wannabe Gangster in the White House Now’

President Trump is a “wannabe gangster,” actor Robert De Niro charged on Friday’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He’s a “D.D.,” the star of the Godfather movies mused, “a disappointed dunsky. That’s what he is. He’s a dumbbell, in other words.”

Two years ago, at the Tony awards in June of 2018, De Niro sunk so low as to use the awards stage to crudely denounce President Trump: “I’m gonna say one thing: Fuck Trump. It’s no longer ‘down with Trump.’ It’s ‘fuck Trump.’”
