Obama dines with President Trump-basher De Niro and Chicom-lover Tim Cook

The Daily Mail reports that former President Obama had dinner with TDS-infected actor Robert De Niro and Apple CEO Tim Cook.

From their story:

Former US president Barack Obama met acting legend and vociferous Donald Trump critic Robert De Niro and Apple CEO Tim Cook for dinner in New York on Monday evening. The trio spent several hours eating together at Yves Restaurant in Tribeca.

Left-leaning De Niro campaigned for Obama as president in 2008 and has consistently expressed his support for the former leader.

He has previously stated that Donald Trump ‘should not be president, period’. De Niro infamously gave a speech at the 2018 Tony Awards during which he declared: ‘I’m gonna say one thing. F*** Trump.’

Read the whole puff piece here.

Gee, wonder if Obama and De Niro discussed the lawsuit De Niro is facing in which a female employee charges De Niro with creepy and abusive behavior. The abusive behavior includes leaving her voicemails threatening “you’re f—ing history” and calling her a “bitch” and a “brat.”

And I wonder if Obama and Chicom-lover Tim Cook discussed Cook’s appointment as chairman of the advisory board for Tsinghua University’s economics school in Beijing. This is the same Cook who has come under fire over Apple’s decision to remove an app that let Hong Kong protesters track police movements in the territory, kowtowing to Chinese censors.

Or maybe Obama and Cook discussed the Muslim prisoners in China’s concentration camps who are reportedly subjected to gang rape and medical experiments?

Great dining companions there, Obama. Really impressive.

Lawsuit claims Robert De Niro subjected female employee to creepy and abusive behavior

Demorats set the standard: We must believe all women. He’s guilty!

From NY Post: Robert De Niro routinely subjected his longtime employee to creepy and abusive behavior, including leaving her voicemails threatening “you’re f—ing history” and calling her a “bitch” and a “brat,” an explosive new lawsuit charges.

Graham Chase Robinson says for years she was the victim of “gratuitous unwanted physical contact” from the Oscar winner, who also hurled “sexually-charged comments to her” when she worked at his production company, Canal Productions Inc.

Robinson’s allegations against the “Taxi Driver” star are levied in a lawsuit filed Thursday in Manhattan federal court for gender discrimination and wage violations.

She said she began working for Canal Productions in 2008 as an executive assistant and “forced to resign” in April after rising to the position of vice president of production and finance.

“Robert De Niro is someone who has clung to old mores. He does not accept the idea that men should treat women as equals,” the suit says. “He does not care that gender discrimination in the workplace violates the law. Ms. Robinson is a casualty of this attitude.”

She claims De Niro treated her as his “office wife” and made her do “stereotypically female duties, like housework” while underpaying her and denying her overtime.

The actor also allegedly “urinated during telephone calls” with Robinson and would greet her wearing only his “pajamas or a bathrobe,” the suit says.

“Among other things, De Niro would direct Ms. Robinson to scratch his back, button his ties and prod him awake when he was in bed,” the complaint adds. “De Niro also stood idly by while his friend slapped Ms. Robinson on her buttocks.”

Robinson said she had to endure De Niro’s jokes about his Viagra prescription and that he directed her to “imagine him on the toilet.”

”De Niro suggested that Ms. Robinson could get pregnant using sperm from her (married) male co-worker,” the suit adds.

The suit also contains a link to a recording of a scathing voicemail De Niro allegedly left Robinson when she didn’t pick up his call. “You f—ing don’t answer my calls? How dare you! You’re about to be fired. You’re f–king history,” he seethes.

De Niro and his production company sued Robinson for $6 million in August, accusing her of swiping cash and frequent flyer miles and abruptly quitting. But Robinson claims that suit was brought in retaliation — after she had threatened to sue the actor first.

“De Niro was enraged at the prospect of Ms. Robinson bringing a lawsuit challenging his behavior,” Robinson’s complaint says. “So, he retaliated and struck first.”

Robinson claims she long contemplated quitting but that De Niro would lord his influence as one of Hollywood’s top actors over her, telling her he’d giver her “bad recommendation” if she left, according to court papers.

Listen to De Niro’s voicemail message to Robinson here.

This would not shock me that this woman’s claim is true. De Niro has a history of abusive language and behavior:

Just what we need: Celebrities lecturing us about the “truth about Trump collusion”

I made it through about a minute of this video. That’s about all I can take of self-righteous celebrities with TDS.

And if the “collusion” is there, why isn’t President Trump impeached yet? Why the wait? Huh?

Expect the delusional hysterics to continue well until 2020…

Ruh roh! TDS-infected Robert De Niro pens “strongly worded” letter to Robert Mueller

From Yahoo: After a half dozen episodes of playing the man on “Saturday Night Live,” Robert De Niro is doing his best to offer professional advice to Robert Mueller.

In a New York Times op-ed response to Mueller’s Wednesday morning press conference, the actor pleaded for the Justice Department’s outgoing special counsel to be more active in the aftermath of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Displaying a surprising amount of deference to a man he’s spent the past few months trying to turn into a tool for comedy on broadcast television, De Niro wrote, “As I prepared for my role on the show, I got to know you a lot better. I read about your lifetime devotion to public service and your respect for the rule of law. I watched how you presided over the special counsel’s office apparently without leaks. And you never wavered, even in the face of regular vicious attacks from the president and his surrogates.”

Still, after Mueller’s impromptu announcement this (yesterday) morning — in which he stated that he would be closing the special counsel’s office and would not be appearing before any further congressional hearings on matters related to last month’s report on his findings — De Niro wants more.

“In your news conference, you said that your investigation’s work ‘speaks for itself.’ It doesn’t. It may speak for itself to lawyers and lawmakers who have the patience and obligation to read through the more than 400 pages of carefully chosen words and nuanced conclusions (with all due respect, as good a read as it is, you’re no Stephen King),” De Niro wrote.

Whether or not De Niro had some version of this chambered and ready to go before this morning’s surprise announcement is unclear. But this is far from the first time De Niro has been vocal about matters related to the current White House occupant. “Say what you will about the president — and I have — when it comes to that lying, exaggerating, bullying thing, no one can touch him,” De Niro wrote on Wednesday, referring to an ongoing string of public statements he’s made during the Trump tenure.

Libtards who confronted Jeff Flake at Kavanaugh confirmation cheered at award event

A participation award for Gallagher and Archila/Getty Images

All they got was a hammer. We got SCJ Kavanaugh. I’d say we got the better deal.

From MSN: Maria Gallagher and Ana Maria Archila – the two protesters who famously confronted then-Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) in an elevator about his support of Justice Brett Kavanaugh – receiving a standing ovation as they accepted honors at the 10th annual Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards in New York.

The pair made headlines in September for their filmed confrontation with Flake in an elevator at the Capitol when he was on his way to a Senate Judiciary Committee vote to advance Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination to the Senate floor.

“When we showed up on that day, and I met Maria half an hour before that interaction, I did not expect to see Sen. Flake, and that we would hold him in the elevator for five minutes,” Archila told the crowd Friday at the ceremony Borough of Manhattan Community College.

Archila – the co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy who attended the State of the Union address as a guest of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in February – praised Gallagher, saying, the moment with Flake showed “what it’s like to be a real New Yorker.”

Before the elevator encounter, Flake had announced that he would support Kavanaugh. After it, he called for a one-week delay in a Senate floor vote to allow for an FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against the judge.

Flake ultimately voted to confirm Kavanaugh, who now sits on the Supreme Court.

Also among the honorees at the awards show: Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Ndaba Mandela, former model and FEED founder Lauren Bush Lauren, and 8-year-old Nigerian refugee and chess prodigy Tanitoluwa “Tani” Adewumi.

TDS-infected Robert De Niro screams at his driver because he went to the wrong spot

No surprise here seeing as how the actor can’t control his foul mouth or his temper.

From NY Post: Robert De Niro showed he can still be a “Raging Bull” Thursday as he had a meltdown outside a Manhattan courthouse, screaming at his driver for not showing up at the right place.

The “Goodfellas” actor went nuts while frantically searching for his missing driver after spending the entire morning in court in his divorce case with estranged wife Grace Hightower.

“You’re not in front! You’re not where you dropped us off!” De Niro squawked into his black LG flip phone outside 60 Centre St., as he shielded his face with the paper.

The driver appeared to respond on the phone, but De Niro — who was flanked by shutterbugs — wasn’t having it. “On Worth Street! Then you’d see all the photographers here! You’re not where you dropped us off!” he continued railing. His lawyer meekly offered, “Let’s go back in the building.”

“This is ridiculous,” the Oscar winner scoffed, as he marched toward the back of the courthouse.

Meanwhile, tourists whipped out their cellphones to snap photos of the Manhattan-born star. “Take it easy, Bobby!” one shouted.

De Niro and Hightower had just spent hours in Manhattan Supreme Court, where their lawyers holed up behind closed doors to hash out their divorce.

The soon-to-be exes, who were married for 20 years, are fighting over custody of their 7-year-old daughter. The judge called the warring parents back to court for 2:15 p.m.

Meathead shreds De Niro for his "f*ck Trump" outburst: "You're helping Trump"

rob reiner tweet4

rob reiner tweet3
Meathead needs a new dictionary because he really doesn’t understand the meaning of “counterproductive.”
From SF Gate: Rob Reiner, a director and longtime advocate for liberal Democratic causes in Hollywood, ripped into Robert De Niro for his “F— Trump” outburst at last Sunday’s Tony Awards, calling the foul-mouthed speech counterproductive.
“If you have any interest in trying to preserve the democracy, and put it in the hands of somebody who understands government, who isn’t self-dealing, who cares about this country and the people in this country, then you’re helping Trump,” Reiner said in an interview earlier this week on The Hill’s Rising” TV show with co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton.
“You’re helping Trump by saying ‘F— Trump’ because he can say, ‘Look at these people, these elitists,’” added Reiner, who defended De Niro’s right to share his opinion even as he found it tactically a mistake.
 “There’s a very fine line between energizing the base and energizing the other side,” added the director of classics like “The Princess Bride” and “When Harry Met Sally…”
“Right now, if you’re a Democrat and you want to hold this president accountable you have to have some ability, some subpoena power to have hearings and to actually expose certain things, right now you have an enthusiasm gap,” he said.
“If you do things like that, that enthusiasm gap narrows because you make the other side more enthusiastic and so it’s not good,” Reiner said. “Plus, that’s not a smart way to talk about anybody.”
One day after De Niro’s F-bomb on the stage of Radio City Music Hall, Trump did indeed respond to the Oscar-winning actor, calling him a “very low IQ individual” who has received “to [sic] many shots to the head by real boxers in movies.”
“I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch-drunk,’” Trump tweeted. “I guess he doesn’t……realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!” he went on say in a separate tweet.
De Niro, long a critic of President Trump, kicked off a firestorm when he dropped the F-bomb just before introducing a performance by special Tony winner Bruce Springsteen last Sunday.
“It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘F— Trump,’” the actor said, eliciting a standing ovation from many in the audience at Radio City Music Hall.

TDS: Robert De Niro and his foul mouth bash President Trump during award ceremony for high school students


Robert De Niro gave a speech at The Jimmy & Rosemary Breslin American Writer Awards in NYC on June 7. About the award event:
“On June 7th, 2018, thirteen student writers were honored as the winners of the Jimmy and Rosemary Breslin “American Writer Award” during a ceremony at Tweed.
The award is the culmination of a writing competition highlighting the journalistic voices of New York City’s young writers. The essay contest was open to all 12th-graders in NYC public schools. Each student was required to submit a non-fiction, New York-centered story in 800 words or less.”
The audience at this event was high school kids. With that in mind, De Niro couldn’t control his TDS and went off on President Trump, as it only took him 36 seconds into his speech to start his rants.
Here’s a sampling of some of what he said (I listened to the whole video so you don’t have to):

  • What does the truth mean today? If you’re Donald Trump, it doesn’t mean anything.
  • Our country is lead by a president who believes he can make up his own truth. And we have a word for that: B*llshit.
  • Trump manifests serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of discharging duties of the president of the US.
  • That he (Trump) is mean-spirited, soulless, immoral, amoral, con artist son of a b*tch.
  • F*ck Donald Trump.
  • You know with Hitler, with other desperates, people didn’t take them seriously (obvious reference to comparing Trump to Hitler). They laughed at them, turned around and then it was too late. We can’t let that happen in this country.
  • He’s a f*cking idiot.
  • A government that uses the same language Lenin and Stalin used to arrest and execute Soviet citizens calling our journalists enemy of the people.

De Niro continued his vulgarities against President Trump at the Tony Awards Sunday night. He said, “Fck Trump, it’s not longer down with Trump. It’s fck Trump.” The audience, of course, gave him a standing ovation.
Classy, De Niro, real classy.
If you so desire to view his rant, De Niro gets up to the podium at the 1:37 mark.

In denial: Hollyweird execs blame Rotten Tomatoes for their demise

denial
Yeah, riiiiiight. I’m sure it has nothing to do with movie ticket prices, the unoriginality of movies and media/online competition. Oh, and then there’s this:

I’m sure the liberal agenda and politics that Hollyweird spews everyday have nothing to do with their decline! Whatever helps you sleep at night.
From NY Times: Hollywood had a horrible summer.
Between the first weekend in May and Labor Day, a sequel-stuffed period that typically accounts for 40 percent of annual ticket sales, box office revenue in North America totaled $3.8 billion, a 15 percent decline from the same span last year. To find a slower summer, you would have to go back 20 years. Business has been so bad that America’s three biggest theater chains have lost roughly $4 billion in market value since May.
Ready for the truly alarming part? Hollywood is blaming a website: Rotten Tomatoes.
“I think it’s the destruction of our business,” Brett Ratner, the director, producer and film financier, said at a film festival this year.
Some studio executives privately concede that a few recent movies — just a few — were simply bad. Flawed marketing may have played a role in a couple of other instances, they acknowledged, along with competition from Netflix and Amazon.
But most studio fingers point toward Rotten Tomatoes, which boils down hundreds of reviews to give films “fresh” or “rotten” scores on its Tomatometer. The site has surged in popularity, attracting 13.6 million unique visitors in May, a 32 percent increase above last year’s total for the month, according to the analytics firm comScore.
Studio executives’ complaints about Rotten Tomatoes include the way its Tomatometer hacks off critical nuance, the site’s seemingly loose definition of who qualifies as a critic and the spread of Tomatometer scores across the web. Last year, scores started appearing on Fandango, the online movie ticket-selling site, leading to grousing that a rotten score next to the purchase button was the same as posting this message: You are an idiot if you pay to see this movie.
Mr. Ratner’s sentiment was echoed almost daily in studio dining rooms all summer, although not for attribution, for fear of giving Rotten Tomatoes more credibility. Over lunch last month, the chief executive of a major movie company looked me in the eye and declared flatly that his mission was to destroy the review-aggregation site.

Robert De Niro was a client of international prostitution ring with underage girls

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 19:59:39 +0000

eowyn2

Although the news is from 1998, I only just discovered it.

Reporting for the UK Independent on November 15, 1998, John Lichfield wrote about a trial “this week” in a criminal court in Paris, of the operators of an international “call-girl” agency that specialized in wealthy, high-profile clients.

The trial uncovered the brutal methods the agency used to snare young women, “some as young as 15”. The French Brigade de Repression de Proxenetisme (the equivalent of the Vice Squad) traced 89 young women who said they had been tricked or sometimes physically constrained by the agency into working for them. The girls were sometimes “sold on like cattle” to other call-girl agencies.

The agency’s files of clients’ names seized by the police are said to include many well-known members of the sports and show-business jet-set on both sides of the Atlantic, Arab princes, as well as two senior French center-right politicians.

Lichfield wrote:

“Six people are charged with the running of an international prostitution ring, whose call-girls entertained the actor Robert de Niro, the former tennis player, Wojtek Fibak, two senior (but unnamed) French politicians and several Gulf princes. The agency specialised in tricking, or trapping, star-struck teenage girls into selling their bodies with the promise of careers as models or actresses….

De Niro, despite a much publicised ‘arrest’ in Paris while filming a movie earlier this year, was questioned only as a witness and occasional client of the network’s prostitutes. He is suing the investigating magistrate, Frederic N’Guyen Duc Quang, following his highly publicised interrogation; the actor’s lawyers accuse the investigator of deliberate publicity-seeking.”
