President Donald Trump has fired back at Robert De Niro after the Hollywood star recently delivered a hate-filled anti-American speech during an award show.
In a post on Truth Social, Trump blasted De Niro as “unwatchable,” arguing that his personal life is a “mess” because he “has become a total loser.”
Trump noted that “De Niro should focus on his life” instead of attacking other people.
The 45th president dropped the hammer on De Niro over his speech at the Gotham Film Awards.
During the event at the Italian restaurant Cipriani in New York, De Niro appeared on stage to present the Gotham Historical Icon & Creator Tribute Award.
The award spotlights authentic storytelling and significant moments in cinema.
The actor presented the award to the cast of Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon.”
However, De Niro used the platform to launch into another one of his anti-Trump rants that was completely unrelated to the event, the award, or the movie.
“Lying has become just another tool in the charlatan’s arsenal,” De Niro declared while bashing Trump.
“The former president lied to us more than 30,000 times during his four years in office, and he’s keeping up the pace with his current campaign of retribution,” the “Taxi Driver” actor said.
“But with all his lies, he can’t hide his soul.
“He attacks the weak, destroys the gifts of nature, and shows his disrespect, for example, using ‘Pocahontas’ as a slur,” De Niro added.
He was referring to when Trump called out Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for lying about her Native American ancestry.
De Niro’s rant mirrors his previous outbursts about Trump.
Taking to Truth Social on Sunday, Trump blasted De Niro’s acting abilities and the recent two-week court case.
As Slay News reported, De Niro was hit with a lawsuit filed by his former assistant Graham Chase Robinson, who accused the actor of “abuse.”
Robinson alleges that 80-year-old De Niro made demands from her that she described as “creepy” and “disgusting.”
De Niro lost his court battle with Robinson last month and was ordered to pay her $1.2 million in damages.
“Robert De Niro, whose acting talents have greatly diminished, with his reputation now shot, must even use a teleprompter for his foul and disgusting language,” Trump wrote.
“So disrespectful to our Country.
“He has become unwatchable both in movies and with the FOOLS that destroyed the Academy Awards, bringing them from one of the top shows in the Country to a low-rated afterthought.
“De Niro should focus on his life, which is a mess, rather than the lives of others,” Trump advised.
“He has become a total loser, as the World watches, waits, and laughs!”
During the Trump administration, De Niro frequently expressed his hatred of the president, often using profanity.
In 2018, the actor yelled “Fuck Trump!” multiple times on stage at the Tony Awards.
His verbal harangue elicited a standing ovation from the liberal audience.
