A video clip of Robert De Niro slamming Donald Trump while filming a political testimony for a non-partisan group has surfaced online.
De Niro and other participants were asked by the non-partisan group #VoteYourFuture, “What do you care about?”
Going completely off script, De Niro said that what he cares about is the direction of the country. To get his point across, the “Raging Bull” actor went on a tear and destroyed Trump.
“I mean, he’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk. He’s a dog. He’s a pig. He’s a con, a bulls— artist. A mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” De Niro said.
Trump is under fire since a tape surfaced Friday of him boasting to “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush about kissing, groping and having sex with women, saying that “when you’re a star, they let you do anything … I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” he said. “Grab ‘em by the p-y.”
Later that evening, Trump apologized in a taped message he posted on Facebook:
“I’ve never said I’m a perfect person. I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today in this more than decade old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize.”
He added: “I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never, ever let you down.”
