Actor Robert De Niro has become a left-wing extremist in his old age, which might be the result of his being a grumpy old dude, but whatever the reason, he started a feud with former President Donald Trump that has now lasted years, which was probably an unwise idea, given the fact the current GOP primary frontrunner is well known for his counterpunching style. Let’s face it, Trump is far superior in his rhetorical skill than De Niro. The “God Father II” actor often comes off as a lunatic in his unhinged rants, whereas Trump bashes and smashes with authority and truth.
According to Newsmax, De Niro stated that the speech he gave during the Gotham Awards last week in New York was censored, apparently without his knowing it, because of his anti-Trump comments. Before we get into that, why does this guy think every single time he opens his mouth he has to be political? Can’t he just be gracious and thankful for the award he’s given and enjoy the evening? Being that obsessed with politics can cause you to have a mental breakdown. Oh. Well. That explains a lot.
“Robert De Niro is a ‘mental midget’ whose mind is shot, and whose life is a total train wreck. Very much like Crooked Joe Biden, he can’t put two sentences together. The good news is that this crude and very stupid ‘animal’ has lost all credibility!” Trump stated in a post on Truth Social published Monday.

In the middle of presenting the Gotham Award for Historical Icon and Creator Tribute, De Niro paused, apparently realizing his speech had been edited. He grabbed his cellphone to find an earlier version of the speech.
“I just want to say one thing,” the actor told the attendees, The Hill reported. “The beginning of my speech was edited, cut out, I didn’t know about it. And I want to read it.”
De Niro proceeded to attack Trump for an alleged propensity for lying.
“History isn’t history anymore,” De Niro said, The Hill reported. “Truth is not truth. Even facts are being replaced by alternative facts and driven by conspiracy theories and ugliness.
“Lying has become just another tool in the charlatan’s arsenal. The former president lied to us more than 30,000 times during his four years in office, and he’s keeping up the pace in his current campaign of retribution. But with all his lies, he can’t hide his soul.”
The comments published on Monday by Trump came after he first unleashed on De Niro over the weekend, saying, “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, so disrespectful to our Country.”
He included a link in the post to the story concerning the actor’s speech.
“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. He has become a total loser, as the World watches, waits, and laughs!” Trump continued.
De Niro has a raging case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, that much is clear. We’re talking about a man who is in his 80s and just had a kid this year. Let that hit you for a little bit. He’s the living embodiment of the meme “man shakes fist at sky.” Sad how far he’s fallen.
