Hollywood leftist Robert DeNiro renewed his criticism of President Donald Trump, calling the commander-in-chief a “gangster president” and saying he “can’t wait to see him in jail.

The foul-mouthed actor, who was the subject of lawsuit by a former employee last week alleging sexual assault, also criticized Republicans for “behaving badly” and said “we must do something about it.”

DeNiro was speaking to The Guardian, the British leftwing mouthpiece, ahead of the London premiere of Martin Scorsese’s new film The Irishman in which DeNiro plays a mafia killer.

De Niro said: “We have a real, immediate problem in that we have a gangster president who thinks he can do anything he wants … the problem is, if he actually gets away with it, then we all have a problem.

The gall of the people around him who actually defend him, these Republicans, is appalling, and we must do something about it.

According to DeNiro, Trump and Republicans across America are “bullying” him and other liberals, though he did not provide any examples of this supposed “bullying.”

Asked if he thought Trump will be sent to prison as a result of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, De Niro replied: “Oh, I can’t wait to see him in jail. I don’t want him to die, I want him to go to jail.

De Niro returned to the theme while recording an episode of The Graham Norton Show, due for broadcast on British TV on Friday. He said: “Today, we have a weird, twisted president who thinks he’s a gangster, who’s not even a very good gangster … Gangsters have honour, you shake a hand and they have your word and you have theirs and that’s it. But with this guy, it’s not the case.”

  1. In what world do these people live? First, the GOP controlled would have to vote to convict. Based on everything that is out there now that is never, ever going to happen. Assuming it did happen, we’d have President Pence. This seems to be lost on people like De Niro. Pence would surely pardon Trump from any further criminal investigation.

    Trump isn’t going anywhere and other than the AOC crowd (which do not understand the Constitution), and possibly will be with us until January 2025.

  2. Bullying is what the liberals do. They are also the first to use violence against those who do not agree with them. As for dinero the punk you can kiss our American azz.

  3. Don’t let yourself get attached to anything you are not prepared to walk out on within 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner.

  4. 38% of north America is already is jail but I own the bull a life datto so I`ll shut up.I could have frozen to death in the rockys but the bull saved me so he has some good in him somewhere
