Robert De Niro Responds To Trump’s Victory: I Feel Like I Did After 9/11

Legendary actor Robert De Niro certainly hasn’t been shy about his dislike of Donald Trump, saying back in August that “he shouldn’t even be where he is, so God help us. What he’s been saying is really totally crazy, ridiculous … he is totally nuts.” In October, he released a videowhere he urged the people of America not to elect Trump as President, using strong language to paint a vivid picture of the then-nominee.

“He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, a bullshit artist. A mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He talks how he’d like to punch people in the face? Well, I’d like to punch him in the face.”

Well, despite De Niro’s rhetoric, Donald Trump did indeed win the Presidency, but that doesn’t mean that De Niro is going to be giving Trump a pass. When asked by The Hollywood Reporter on Friday how he felt when he heard the election outcome, the Taxi Driver star did not mince words.

“I feel like I did after 9/11… And we’ll just see what happens. There will be many, many, many, many, many people watching.”
