Hollywood liberals seem to think they can make whatever vile threats they want towards Donald Trump and face no repercussions for them. This week, however, one liberal celebrity learned just how wrong this notion is.
The Daily Beast reported that Robert De Niro appeared on The View this week to discuss his new film The Comedian. Unfortunately, the conversation turned to politics as idiot host Joy Behar asked De Niro about his pre-election threat to punch Trump in the face. Instead of apologizing for the disturbing threat, De Niro doubled down.
“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.”
As Behar and Whoopi Goldberg cackled gleefully, De Niro tried to defend himself by claiming that Trump is a bully who deserves it.
“It was only a symbolic thing, anyway. It wasn’t like I was going to go find him and punch him in the face,” the actor said. “But he’s got to hear it. He’s got to hear that, you know, that’s how he makes people feel. It’s not good to feel that way. It’s not good 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.”
However, the damage was already done, as many patriots took to Twitter to let De Niro know that what he said is NOT ok!
