Robert De Niro was back to blasting President Donald Trump at various events over the weekend. “We have a wannabe gangster in the White House,” said the 75-year-old Trump hater to Stephen Colbert. “Even gangsters have morals; they have ethics… especially in that world. This guy, he doesn’t even know what that means.” De Niro loves to portray himself as this big bad “tough guy,” but he got torched immediately after he trashed Trump. You’ll love this.

Robert De Niro was busy over the weekend spewing his contempt for President Trump. On Friday night, he showed up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to publicize his latest film, The Irishman, another gangster flick with the 75-year-old playing another tough guy.

And right off the bat, De Niro mused about placing President Trump in handcuffs and taking “him away in an orange jumpsuit.”

“We have a wannabe gangster in the White House now,” he told Colbert. “Even gangsters have morals; they have ethics, they have a code, and you know, when you give somebody your word that’s all you have is your word, especially in that world. This guy, he doesn’t even know what that means.”

De Niro also laughed off Trump, calling him “another low IQ individual” and claiming “it was his civic duty to portray Robert Mueller on Saturday Night Live.” Proving he is just another arrogant Hollywood film star when Colbert asked who the “greatest actor” De Niro ever worked with, the Trump hater simply responded: “Myself.”

But that’s not all. De Niro then showed up at the 18th Tribeca Film Festival, and once again his entire focus was on President Trump. The man who made a name for himself portraying Mafia mobsters was asked to introduce the HBO-produced The Apollo — a documentary chronicling the historic Harlem music hall.

Of course, De Niro chose to bring up the president. “Every time I set foot in this hall of art and entertainment, I can feel its incredible history,” the actor said before the film’s screening, according to Variety. “In these disturbing times when the administration is promoting divisiveness, and racism, by being here tonight we are making a statement that we reject it.”

Even Stephen Colbert was taken aback by De Niro’s gruffness and his overall bad attitude. “You’re not as enthusiastic to be on a talk show as we are all excited to have you here,” Colbert said, to which De Niro explained that he just likes to keep things “short, sweet and to the point.”

Yeah, De Niro plays the “tough guy” and pretends he is this “badass mafia gangster,” but Trump is living rent-free in his mind. And Americans torched De Niro, treating him as just another Hollywood blowhard and big crybaby who never got over Trump’s victory.

“Just love how animated everyone gets over Trump. Imagine if he wins a second term. Mass suicides and exploding heads. This prat is just another celeb voice. Celebs didn’t do Hilary any favors at the election rallies so why bother now,” tweeted Malcolm Stanley.

“How about your divisiveness? You keep stoking the flames, pouring gas on the fire…yet, you always blame Trump. You and your idiot Hollywood clowns should take a look in the mirror and see who is REALLY dividing this country,” tweeted Ty Taylor.

“DeNiro is just another brain dead liberal. He has so much hate in his heart that he no longer makes any sense to anybody. He is a complete waste and a racist, bigoted piece of coca! Hate is actually all I see in this scumbag!” tweeted Charles Stanley.

Robert De Niro can’t seem to get through an interview without becoming unhinged and trashing Trump. And he now sees himself as the “tough guy” mobsters he has played on the silver screen. However, the truth is he just an elderly washed-up actor who is suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Whatever greatness De Niro enjoyed earlier in his career is gone. He will be remembered as this sick little man twisted by hate, only to find in the end it was the hard-working middle class who made him famous, and who now can’t stand what he has become.
