The veteran actors appeared on the #VoteYourFuture campaign featuring 100 popular Hollywood stars and celebrities, originally aimed at encouraging US citizens to vote.
Watch De Niro’s ridiculing Trump:
But, Robert De Niro ridiculed Donald Trump that made into bold front page headlines across the world in no time.
In a scathing attack on the Presidential nominee, Niro called him, “a dog,” “a pig,” “a con,” “a bulls—t artist … who doesn’t know what he’s talking about”.
He mocked Trump for turning US elections into a comedy show and said, “He talks [about] how he wants to punch people in the face?” De Niro said in the video. “Well, I’d like to punch him in the face.”
“He’s a con, a bullshit artist who doesn’t know what he is talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming his society (and) doesn’t pay his taxes.”
“This is somebody who we want for president? I don’t think so. What I care about is the direction of this country. And what I’m very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump,” said the actor cautioning voters about the Presidential candidate of Republicans.
“If you care about your future, vote for it.”
Niro went overboard in attacking Trump, say some critics adding that the video was part of a neutral campaign to motivate people to participate their democratic duties.
It was an anonymous project aimed at reaching out to people, “No matter the issue, the platform or the candidate you support — the most impactful way to shape the future of our country is to vote,” according to the campaign’s website.
“We started this project to share what motivates us to get involved…,” further added the campaign. Some of the other Hollywood actors who also joined the campaign include Edward Norton, Samuel L. Jackson, Julia Roberts and Emma Stone.
