Robert De Niro Blasts ‘Wannabe Gangster’ Donald Trump As ‘A Dumbbell,’ ‘Total Loser’

Robert De Niro has never been shy about expressing his disdain for Donald Trump, and the “Goodfellas” star went after the president with a vengeance during a Friday night appearance on Global‘s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”.

Discussing the Mueller report, the 75-year-old Oscar winner told host Stephen Colbert that he initially tried to give Trump a chance before drawing a conclusion on his abilities as president.

“That’s what I said right after he was elected,” De Niro told Colbert. “Give him a chance. I give everybody the benefit of the doubt. This guy has proven himself to be a total loser.”

Colbert asked De Niro, who’ll be reuniting with director Robert Scorsese for the mob-themed Netflix film “The Irishman”, why audiences continue to be fascinated by gangster flicks.

“People like the outlaw type thing, except we have a wannabe gangster in the White House now,” he responded, taking another shot at Trump. “Tries to act like a made man, like a made guy.”

Describing Trump as a “dumbbell,” De Niro added: “Even gangsters have morals and they have ethics. They have a code and you know when you give somebody your word it’s your word because it’s all you have is your word. This guy, he doesn’t even know what that means.”
