This will be brief, so don’t worry. What a hypocrite the Actor Robert De Niro is, the other day the “on his way out” thank heavens, President Obama presented De Niro with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Accepting the honour is not why I call him a hypocrite, I do so because of all the vicious comments he made during and after the election of President Elect Donald Trump. What sour grapes to carry on as he has, and as others have too some ridiculous so called entertainers. They reminded me of the bullying pathetic “Remainders” we had in my Country the UK after the Vote to Leave Europe.
De Niro is a hypocrite because of all he has said about the President Elect what is the problem of these people, jealous of all the money Trump has.
De Niro brought up a rundown area known now so well as Tribeca, which he had developed. Did he play fair with any people living there when he bought it to develop? All the money he made, still makes does it donate a fair amount to Charity? All the businesses that have developed around this makes him so much money.
De Niro I once admired, he left his craft behind to turn to making “crap” films but very lucrative $. When De Niro runs down the President Elect he should take a close look at himself. At least one well known well established, well respected Actor/Producer/Director came out and stood for Donald Trump – that was Clint Eastwood.
Tom Hanks came out as well for Trump but soon turned the other way, fear of loss of money?
De Niro in developing his businesses has done no different than the President Elect.
