Robert De Niro is the latest guest to participate in Michael Moore’s new Spotify podcast, “Rumble with Michael Moore”, and while the star of “The Irishman” may not have been Moore’s first guest, he can certainly lay claim to being the most memorable.
During the discussion, De Niro, 76, shares his hopes and dreams for what he’d like to see happen to President Donald Trump.
“I’d like to see a bag of s**t right in his face — hit him right in the face like that and let the picture go all over the world,” De Niro tells Moore.
“And that would be the most humiliating thing because he needs to be humiliated,” De Niro added. “He needs to be confronted and humiliated by whoever his opponent is, his political opponent. They have to stand up to him. They don’t have to do it in an obvious physical way, but they have to have the formidability to confront him and to put him in his place, because the people have to see that, to see him be humiliated.”
While Trump has used the word “pig” to describe women such as Rosie O’Donnell, De Niro says he would never use that word for Trump — because it would be denigrating to swine.
“I always say ‘low life’ because he’s a low life. He’s not a pig,” De Niro explained. “I used to call him a pig, but pigs have dignity. He has no dignity, no nothing. He’s a disgrace to the human race, if you will. I don’t want to call them names. I just want to get us out of this situation. We all know what he is. It’s just getting past that.”
