Robert De Niro reportedly tore into President Trump in a speech Tuesday night at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala, calling the “jerkoff-in-chief” a “f—ing idiot” and a “f—ing fool,” according to The New York Times.
“This f—ing idiot is the president,” De Niro said. “It’s The Emperor’s New Clothes – this guy is a f—ing fool.”
“Our baby-in-chief – the jerkoff-in-chief, I call him – has put the press under siege, ridiculing it through trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies,” he said, according to the Times.
“And again, just like in 1971, the press is distinguishing itself with brave, exacting journalism,” De Niro continued, referring to the press’s role in uncovering the Watergate scandal.
De Niro has previously criticized the president, calling him a “flat-out blatant racist” and saying that he would like to “punch him in the face.”
