Barack Obama And Robert De Niro Had Dinner Together

Barack Obama And Robert De Niro Had Dinner Together

Former US president Barack Obama has been snapped hanging out with iconic film star Robert De Niro.

The two pals were spotted meeting up at a hip New York restaurant Yves yesterday (21 August) evening. The pair were joined for a bite to eat by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Their dinner date comes after Obama signed a deal to produce a Netflix series dramatising the Democratic Party's attempt to impeach current POTUS Donald Trump.

According to reports in the New Yorker, work on the controversial series could start this month, with Obama confirming: "We've already hit the ground running on the script."

Last year, Obama and former First Lady Michelle, signed a deal with the streaming service to produce a range of content under the banner of their company Higher Ground Productions.

The first documentary in the deal aired on Netflix in August. Called American Factory, it hit out - though not in name - at Trump's pledges to breathe new life into the country's manufacturing industry, focusing on a Midwestern factory reopened by Chinese bosses.

And with Bobby D famously not being Trump's biggest fan, we're sure they had a lot to talk about.

An outspoken critic of the incumbent leader of the free world, De Niro last month backed calls for his impeachment.

Speaking on CNN's Reliable Sources show, the 76-year-old said: "It has to happen. There's no way around it.

"He'll say it's rigged, this or that. This guy has done everything possible, much worse than I ever thought ever. The day after he was elected I said, give him a chance. You'll never know. He is worse than I ever could have imagined."

When asked why exactly he was so against Trump, the Irishman actor said he believes the president might be crazy.

He said: "I don't know. I think he's crazy in a way. Part of him is just crazy. Possibly medically, too, I'm starting to think.

"When I saw him out in front of the helicopter waiting to go somewhere and talking endlessly and sweating, I said: 'This guy is not even aware of what he's [doing]. He should at least ask somebody for a handkerchief or something and dry himself off'.

"I mean, where are we? This is a crazy world. What is going on? This guy is crazy. We've got to get him out."

Stop sitting on the fence, Bob, tell us how you really feel.

Well, after stints working at the Manchester Evening News, the Accrington Observer and the Macclesfield Express, along with never setting foot in France, he realised the answer is surprisingly little.
