Yes. Get out. Go away. Be gone. We won’t miss you.
Asylum though. Isn’t that a little extreme? Let’s break it down. The definition of asylum is “the protection granted by a nation to someone who has left their native country as a political refugee.” Well, De Niro has made it blatantly obvious that he does not like Trump winning the election. He’s not really being forced to leave, though. There isn’t a threat to him if he stays. So, is asylum a harsh word? You bet! Let’s say De Niro would go away and pout on vacation for awhile. That’s more accurate.
Did you know? There is a town in Southern Italy, this town is where Robert De Niro’s great-grandparents came from and it has offered the US film star himself… wait for it…. ASYLUM.
Take just a minute to process that in your head…it’s a doozy.
This offer came following the asshat’s foot in mouth remark about how he was going to leave the country and return there if Donald Trump became President.
‘If after the disappointment of Trump, he wants to take refuge here, we are ready to welcome him,’ said Antonio Cerio, the mayor of Ferrazzano.
Now this seriously cracks me up. Not only did De Niro embarrass himself by stating an action he would never take, but now that statement has come full circle to boot him in the buttocks, very publicly.
He has responded during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel: ‘I’m going to probably have to move there,’ after Trump’s election victory.
