Robert De Niro Fobbed Off Arnold Schwarzenegger Because He's 'Voting For Trump'
Robert De Niro refused to get a picture with Arnold Schwarzenegger at a gala event last week.
Christ, he's got bollocks. He must know Arnie is the Terminator, right?!
Variety reported that De Niro told Schwarzenegger: "If you're supporting Trump, I want nothing to do with you."
Awkwardly, Schwarzenegger has publicly denounced Trump.
De Niro may have been confused as Schwarzenegger is the former Republican governor of California and a proud Republican. However, last month he wrote on Instagram: "For the first time since I became a citizen in 1983, I will not vote for the Republican candidate for President. Like many Americans, I've been conflicted by this election - I still haven't made up my mind about how exactly I will vote next month.
"I have been a proud Republican since I moved to America in 1968 and I heard Nixon's words about getting the government off our backs, free trade, and defending our liberty with a strong military. That day I joined the party of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan. But as proud as I am to label myself a Republican, there is one label that I hold above all else - American.

"So I want to take a moment today to remind my fellow Republicans that it is not only acceptable to choose your country over your party - it is your duty."
According to Variety, De Niro has been supporting Clinton since 2015, saying: "Hopefully it will be her, yes. I think that she's paid her dues.
"There are going to be no surprises, and she has earned the right to be president and the head of the country at this point."
Well, there's only three days until we found out what happens.
