And he did it again on Sunday when he appeared on the CNN show Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter to promote his new movie “The Irishman.”
But the subject of President Trump was asked about, as could have been predicted, and De Niro did his angry old man routine.
STELTER: Do you think the president should resign? Because this morning in the Connecticut post, which is one of the biggest papers in the state of Connecticut, I believe this is the first major paper to call for him to step down. That would be quite a dramatic development.
DE NIRO: I don’t think he’s capable of resigning. Bill Maher said it’s going to be difficult getting him out of the White House especially if he wins marginally — if he loses marginally.
STELTER: And when you say that, folks on Fox come after you. I remember the Tony’s when he got up there and cursed.
DE NIRO: We are in a moment in our lives — in this country where this guy is like a gangster. He’s come along and he’s said things, done things we say over and over again. This is terrible.
