Robert De Niro Gives Trump A Savage New Nickname

Robert De Niro   let loose again with some fierce criticism of President Donald Trump .

The two-time Oscar-winner used Wednesday’ s press preview of the 17th annual Tribeca Film Festival in Ny to take aim at Trump — and he bestowed another insulting new nickname on the president.

The country has had a bad year and you, the press, have taken a lot of hits, ” De Niro told reporters covering the event, per Deadline.

De Niro said America was “ being run by a madman who wouldn’ t recognize the truth if it came inside a bucket of his beloved Colonel Sanders Fried Chicken. ” He dubbed Trump “ our lowlife-in-chief. ”

De Niro portrayed special counsel Robert Mueller , who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, to hilarious effect on “ Saturday Night Live ” last weekend.

On Wednesday’ s broadcast of “ Today, ” De Niro joked about reprising the role for scenes “ where I interrogate (Trump), then I arrest him, and then I escort him to jail. ”

De Niro, who cofounded the Tribeca festival with production partner Jane Rosenthal in 2002, urged people to “ speak out” against Trump’ s administration.

“ They have to speak out over and over and over and over again. This guy, this administration, is beyond belief. It has to stop, ” he said.

De Niro has previously called Trump “ a fucking idiot , ” “ a bullshit artist , ” and “ a flat-out blatant racist . ”
