The left knows all about political bullying, but now that they have gotten a taste of their own medicine from President Trump, they don't like it.
One such person is actor Robert De Niro, who told The View that the left now needs to unite and "bully" Trump back, which ultimately means bullying the supporters who voted for him as a reaction to being bullied by leftists like De Niro in the first place.
De Niro's comment was in response to being asked about his infamous statement about punching Trump "in the face."
"I said that because he said that about somebody, that he would like to punch them in the face," he said. "How dare he say that to the crowd? How dare he say the things he does? Of course I want to punch him in the face."
"It was only a symbolic thing anyway," he said. "It wasn’t like I was going to go find him and punch him in the face, but he’s got to hear it. He’s got to hear it that, you know, that’s what he makes people feel. It’s not good to feel that way. It’s not to start that stuff up, but at the same time sometimes when people are bullies like that, that’s what you have to do to shut them up….Bully them back."
“When you have people going in there just to win, it’s not about winning. It’s about what’s right for the country, the people. And we hear a lot of lip service about that and even from Trump."
"But now is the time to see what he’s going to do. So far it doesn’t look good."
This "punch people" rhetoric reared its ugly head at the SAG Awards earlier this week when Stranger Things actor David Harbour said the left needs to "punch people" over their politics.
