At the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala in New York on Tuesday, Robert de Niro used his introduction of recipient Meryl Streep to launch a filthy attack on President Trump that earned him a smooch from the anti-Trump actress.
With copious usage of the F-word, de Niro waxed sophomoric with grade school-level taunts of “idiot” and “fool,” but also came up with some new nicknames for the president: “baby-in-chief” and “jerkoff-in-chief.”
Streep was honored at the gala for her role in Steven Spielberg’s The Post, also starring Tom Hanks. De Niro worked the plot into his anti-Trump monologue:
“It was fascinating to watch 'The Post.' That story took place nearly 50 years ago, but there are many parallels with today obviously.
“At the time of the story Donald Trump was suffering with ‘bone spurs.’ Today the world is suffering from the real Donald Trump. Come on. You know. What are we talking about? This f***ing idiot is the President. It's The Emperor's New Clothes - the guy is a f***ing fool.
“The publication of the Pentagon Papers was a proud moment for American journalism. The Times and the Post challenged the government over critical First Amendment issues. And the press prevailed.
“Our government today, with the propping of our baby-in-chief - the jerk-off-in-chief, I call him - has put the press under siege, trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies. And again just like 1971 the press is distinguishing itself with brave, exacting journalism.
“The movie gave us glimpses of President Nixon as delusional, narcissistic, petty, vindictive, nasty and bats**t f***ing crazy. Ah the good old days.”
It’s funny this Hollywood legend had the gall to criticize someone else as narcissistic when there he is, attending yet another award show for Hollywood elites, where they’re told how important, and groundbreaking, and talented they are.
