Robert De Niro Calls For Donald Trump To Be Impeached At The Irishman Premiere

Robert De Niro Calls For Donald Trump To Be Impeached At The Irishman Premiere

There are countless people in the world who think very little of Donald Trump, but Robert De Niro is among his more high profile and fervent critics.

The 76-year-old actor reaffirmed his disapproval of the US President at the premiere of The Irishman in New York - calling for his impeachment and calling him a 'low life' in the process.

Speaking to Variety, he said: "I hope he gets impeached, it has to be followed through. He's such a low life. He taints everybody around him.

"It's disgraceful with this guy. He has no centre, no ethics, no morals. He's amoral, immoral."

This might seem fairly damning, and it is, but it's not unfamiliar to hear this sort of thing from the two time Oscar winner.

Speaking at the Tony Awards last summer, De Niro said: "I'm gonna say one thing. F*** Trump."

The clear and simple statement earned him a standing ovation, and he added: "It's no longer down with Trump. It's f*** Trump."

The Hollywood legend also laid into Trump in the run up to the 2016 presidential election.

In a video in which he encouraged people to vote (implicitly not for Trump), he said: "I mean he's so blatantly stupid. He's a punk, he's a dog, he's a pig, he's a con, a b******t artist, a mutt who doesn't know what he's talking about, doesn't do his homework, doesn't care, thinks he's gaming society, doesn't pay his taxes. He's an idiot.

"Colin Powell said it best: he's a national disaster. He's an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has.

"He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face. Well, I'd like to punch him in the face."

So yeah, not a great surprise that De Niro would like to see him impeached. But he wasn't the only one to call for Trump's removal from office at The Irishman premiere, director Spike Lee also echoed his sentiment.

"Agent Orange, gotta go," he said.

The Irishman is based on a book called I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt and tells the story of Frank Sheeran (played by De Niro), an infamous war gangster, hitman and war veteran who got himself mixed up with some of the most notorious folk about during the 20th century.

The film will be released on Netflix 27 November.
