‘Total monster’ Trump hammered by Robert De Niro in rant on Bill Maher’s ‘Real Time’

“Move over Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert,” comedian Bill Maher said in introducing Alabama Republican Sen. Katie Britt’s State of the Union response on Friday evening.

Maher, who recently cornered a Trump defender regarding the ex-president’s criminal indictments, opened by ridiculing Britt before welcoming actor Robert De Niro to the stage. Upon asking about Britt’s performance “as the greatest actor,” De Niro said he doesn’t “understand why they would even have someone like her do it.”

“It was so lame,” he said.

A little bit later, Maher asked De Niro about how he thought President Joe Biden did in his recent speech.

“I thought he was great,” De Niro replied.

The “nonsense” about Biden’s age, the 80-year-old said, needs to be ignored.

“This whole thing about his age is so nonsense. The bottom line is it’s Biden vs. Trump,” he said on Real Time with Bill Maher. “Vote for Trump and you get the nightmare.”

On Trump, De Niro said, “The guy is a total monster.”

“He’s such a mean, hateful, nasty person,” he added. “I’d never play him as an actor because I can’t see any good in him. Nothing. Nothing at all, nothing redeemable to him.”

On Trump voters, he simply said, “It can’t be. It cannot be.”
“If he wins the election, you won’t have a show anymore. He’ll come after me,” De Niro said to applause from the audience.

“He’s a sociopathic, psychopathic, malignant narcissist. He is a dangerous person,” according to De Niro.

On whether their paths crossed while they both lived in New York, De Niro said, “I never wanted to know him. He’s an idiot.”

“He was a clown in New York… he’s a classic bully.”

He then passionately said, “He’s got to be stopped.”
