Isn’t this just a little dramatic? 9/11 was a great tragedy where people lost their lives. Is he really comparing an election to that? And he’s not the only person doing this. Many people are acting like the world will be ending. Trump is going to be the president. The president is one branch of the federal government. There is still Congress, the Supreme Court, along with state and local governments. Chill out people.
Robert De Niro has shared his anger at Donald Trump’s presidential election victory, saying that he feels the same way that he felt following September 11, 2001.
‘I feel like I did after 9/11,’ the star said on Thursday, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
‘And we’ll just see what happens. There will be many, many, many, many, many people watching.’
De Niro previously said in an video for a non-partisan campaign called #VoteYourFuture: ‘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.’
He said in the video: ‘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.
