Are Robert De Niro’s Attacks on Trump Hypocrisy?

I suppose the problem is that the line between telling it like it is and being a psychopath is murky.

Anyway, liberal elitists have demonized the Walmart people so much that they literally fall into Trump’s arms like a dazzled lover!

Interviewer: Could you find your way into the character of President Trump?

RDN: I wouldn’t want to play him. He’s such an awful person. There’s nothing redeemable about him, and I never say that about any character.

Interviewer: You found redemptive qualities in Travis Bickle, and you’re saying you couldn’t do the same if you were playing President Trump?

RDN: I can’t compare. There’s not one moment that Trump said: “I’m sorry. I realize I’ve done something that I shouldn’t have done.” He has not one speck of redeemability in him. He’s not owed one speck of redeemability.

Interviewer: People have argued that some of Trump’s rhetoric has emboldened others to make threats or enact violence. Those arguments are not a world away from ones that people made about Travis Bickle or “Joker.” Do you think those arguments hold water?

RDN: They might, but Trump has people who follow him who are crazy and want to do crazy things. What we’re doing in film – it’s like a dream. We know it’s not real. There are people who will take anything to be real, and that we have no control over.

The president is supposed to set an example of trying to do the right thing. Not be a nasty little bitch. Because that’s what he is. He’s a petulant little punk. There’s not one thing that I see in him or his family, not any redeeming qualities. They’re out on the take. It’s like a gangster family.
