Robert DeNiro made headlines when he was going into a expletive rant about Donald Trump shortly before his election to President. He even said he might leave the United States should he be elected and now the Mayor of Italy is offering him asylum to do so if he wishes.
This past Sunday the Mayor of Ferrazzano, in the Italian region of Molise, said that he would provide the actor with asylum of he sincerely wished to seek it and wanted to leave the United States. He said they would welcome him with open arms.
Mayor Antonion Cerio said,
“If, after the disappointment of Trump’s election, he wants to take refuge here, we would be honoured to welcome him.To welcome someone like De Niro would be an amazing promotion for us on the international stage. This is the right place in which to forget the electoral defeat (of Hillary Clinton) and avoid having to beat up Trump.”
DeNiro’s biological grandparents are allegedly from that region of Italy. Which would make it the perfect place for him to go. The actor appeared on television to discuss how upset he was at the results of the election. He noted that since Donald Trump is now President he cannot punch him in the face like he previously said he would do.
“I can’t do that now — he’s the president. And I have to respect that position, though we all know what he … anyway. We have to see what he’s gonna do, and how he’s really gonna follow through on certain things.”
But DeNiro took jabs at the President Elect over and over again saying,
“He’s an idiot. He’s an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has. He talks how he wants to punch people in the face? Well, I’d like to punch him in the face. This is somebody that we want for president? I don’t think so. What I care about is the direction of this country, and what I’m very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump.”
Clearly if he wants to leave than he should. We do not need people in our country who do not want to be here and Trump is not going anywhere anytime soon. So you better get over it or get out!
