Robert DeNiro Defends Obama, Disses The Donald

“It’s like a big hustle,” De Niro said of The Donald’s birthers act. “It’s like being a car salesman. Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up.”

That was Robert DeNiro’s response to what Donald Trump is doing with the birther issue. DeNiro was giving an onstage interview with NBC News anchor Brian Williams at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday. Mr. DeNiro continued;

“I won’t mention names, but there are certain people on the news in the last couple of weeks—what they’re doing is crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up. Go get the facts before you start saying things about people.”

Brian Williams wanted to make sure Mr. DeNiro was in fact talking about The Donald, so Williams asked, “Any of those people have shows on my network on Sunday night?”— clearly talking about Celebrity Apprentice. the reality show hosted by The Donald – to which Mr. DeNiro responded;

“Yes! It’s like a big hustle. It’s like being a car salesman. Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up. How dare you? It’s awful. Just go out there and speak and say these terrible things?… It’s crazy.”

Williams then asked about DeNiro’s feeling to what was happening in the political arena, to which Mr. DeNiro offered his defence of President Obama, saying;

“I think of the possibility of the government being shut down and I say, ‘How did we get to this point?’ …I know Obama was trying to bridge the gap. His intentions are really good. Maybe some things are not as good as we all would like but his intentions are good. A lot of these guys—their intentions are not even good. They’re just playing a game and they’re playing with people’s lives.”


I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
