Robert de Niro calls President Trump “the jerk-off-in-chief” and “f*cking fool” while presenting award to Streep

Remember, #LoveTrumpsHate!

From Daily Mail: Robert de Niro called President Trump a ‘f***ing fool’ in a foul-mouthed rant as he presented Meryl Streep with a best actress award on Tuesday night.

Introducing Streep at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala in New York – which is not broadcast on TV – De Niro took time out to call the President a ‘f***ing idiot’ and compare his presidency to the fairytale of the Emperor’s New Clothes.

The Oscar-winner also branded Trump the ‘baby-in-chief’ and ‘jerk-off-in-chief’ while discussing Streep’s new film The Post, which is about the publication of the Pentagon Papers into the Vietnam War.

De Niro said: ‘It was fascinating to watch The Post. That story took place nearly 50 years ago, but there are many parallels with today obviously. At the time of the story Donald Trump was suffering with “bone spurs”. Today the world is suffering from the real Donald Trump.

This fing idiot is the President. It’s The Emperor’s New Clothes – the guy is a fing fool. 

‘The publication of the Pentagon Papers was a proud moment for American journalism. The Times and the Post challenged the government over critical First Amendment issues. And the press prevailed.

‘Our government today, with the propping [up] of our baby-in-chief – the jerkoff-in-chief I call him – has put the press under siege, trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies.’

‘And again just like 1971 the press is distinguishing itself with brave, exacting journalism.

‘The movie gave us glimpses of President Nixon as delusional, narcissistic, petty, vindictive, nasty and bats*** f***ing crazy. Ah the good old days.’

De Niro has long been a vocal critic of Trump, saying during the presidential campaign that he would ‘like to punch him in the face.’

Since then he has used many public speaking opportunities to trash the President, calling him a ‘blatant racist’, a ‘bozo’ and a ‘motherf***er’.

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

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.”

A letter from Venezuela on how desperate life is

As Venezuela enters its third month of street protests, the country continues to spiral down into utter chaos, as seen in recent headlines:

So what’s day-to-day life like for Venezuelans in their post-collapse society?

A Venezuelan reader of The Organic Prepper blog sends the following account (Note: the account has been edited for spacing and grammar; English is not her native language):

I’m a Venezuelan mom of a 1 year old baby. And we are living a war here 😔.

You can’t go outside to buy food or supplies or medication because each activity is a high risk and more with a baby. So I stay home as much as I can. There are a lot people outside trying to live normally, trying to go to work and buy foods and continue their lives. But when you are working or whatever thing you’re doing you don’t know if you will be able to come back home safe… people continue to work to get whatever miserable pay to buy some food. Everything is so expensive. Perhaps the beans and rice are affordable but still not cheap and is so hard to find food. Options are limited because of the price… you can only buy one item or two of pasta. Everything is so expensive. Perhaps the beans and rice are affordable but still not cheap and is so hard to find food.

And you have to wait in long long lines at your own risk because there are a lot of fights in this store. Imagine tons of people wanting to buy the same product. This is the worst since perhaps about 5 years now… because of scarcity.

Malls and big stores are basically alone because there are places where “colectivos” use to attack, with bombs and there is a group of about 40 men on motorcycles who have been creating chaos in the whole city. They have plenty of arms and they just go through the city shooting houses; stealing stores, people on the streets, batteries of cars, everything they want….

This situation is far worse than we ever imagined. They kill people every day and they pay mercenaries from the government because no one does nothing. The government people are also killing innocents — kids, teenagers, the youth.

We are panicking. We bought a piece of land 3 years ago, but I got pregnant and we decided to wait (on moving there). The land is a safe zone but is 5 hours from here in a very small town of 11,000 people. I live in a city with about 3 million people. At least for now the town (where our property is in) is peaceful. There is no electricity and no asphalt road, so this doesn’t sound lovely for thieves who are looking for biggest fish to catch. According to our neighbors the town is calm, nothing has happened. We need to go there as soon as possible. I am scared because what you say is also true. But in the city there are no options, at least not now. What do you think we should do? I appreciate what you recommend.

I’m sorry for my bad English. I’m trying to write this while playing with my baby.

Venezuelan houses are already bunkers. It has been like this ever since I can remember — perhaps 20 years. Every regular house is made like bunkers — pure concrete from the bottom to the walls to everything. Every house has also 2 to 3 security doors — really big and heavy ones. And on top of that we have fences and electric fences and BIG GATES.

And trust me, even that is not enough to be safe.

The army has damaged gates and has entered different houses looking for students, or rebels. Innocent people have died because they were sadly in the middle of these events. I don’t doubt that the countryside have problems too. But so far, cities are (places of) pure anarchy and madness.

There are several groups creating chaos — the army, mercenaries, thieves, and the rebels who want to kill chavismo and politics and whatever.  A few days ago, they put a bomb into a propane gas distribution cargo and it blew away and this has affected every single thing. They steal cargo transporting food or gas and even fuel, so there is not much to do now.

Communities in the city are not organized since they really need to find food and basic resources. So each individual is waiting in long lines to buy a bread or a medicine or whatever they need. People don’t want to organize; they don’t see this could go like this for years. I assume that we got used to living in chaos and violence.

But the truth is most people are praying and just wishing this will pass soon, when a new president arrives.

But what if it doesn’t? Let’s be clear that we (Venezuela) have so many resources, and Canadá and USA are pulling all of the gold and minerals now so no country really cares what we are suffering as long as they can get their way.

We really feel hopeless.

Meanwhile, actor Sean Penn, who was best buds with Hugo Chavez, continues to be MIA from the Venezuela that once was the object of his praise. Penn was last seen on May 8, 2017, cavorting with another socialist Hollyweird dirt-bag Robert De Niro (see “Robert De Niro threatens violence against Trump“), at New York’s David Koch Theater.

Robert De Niro rants that the U.S. has fallen from ‘uplifting drama’ to ‘tragic, dumba** comedy’

robert de niro

TDS causes ugliness both inside and out

Last October De Niro said he’d “like to punch him (Trump) in the face.” De Niro has also been very vocal about his distaste for all things Trump.

It is my opinion that Trump Derangement Syndrome has turned the proggies’ butt hurt into a “tragic, dumba** comedy.” Just see my previous post on the “comic” Kathy Griffin” for verifiable proof.

From Yahoo: Critically acclaimed actor Robert De Niro said Sunday that the once-inspiring United States has descended into a “tragic, dumbass comedy.”

De Niro, 73, offered his assessment of the country under President Trump while delivering a commencement address at Brown University.

The movie star received an honorary doctorate of fine arts at the Ivy League school in Providence, R.I. He described what he sees as America’s fall from grace “in movie terms” and encouraged the 2017 graduating class to work toward repairing what’s damaged.

“When you started school, the country was an inspiring, uplifting drama,” he said. “You are graduating into a tragic, dumbass comedy. My advice is to lock the Van Wickle Gates and stay here. But if you do leave, work for the change. Work to stop the insanity. Start now so the Class of 2018 will graduate into a better world.”

De Niro, a well-known Democrat, was as outspoken in his support of former President Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as he is in his disdain for Trump.

During the presidential campaign, De Niro shot a video, denouncing Trump as a “national disaster” and “an embarrassment to this country.” It was supposed to be part of the #VoteYourFuture campaign but organizers considered it too partisan to include in the final project. The video was published separately.

“I mean he’s so blatantly stupid,” he said in the video. “He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, a bulls*** 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.

On the eve of Trump’s inauguration, De Niro again condemned Trump at a protest outside Trump Tower in New York. He gave a speech criticizing Trump’s rhetoric around immigration and said he hopes the former reality TV show star will abandon his “divisive, racist, misogynist, ignorant plan.”

“Just like our Founding Fathers, you can love our country and not love everything about it. That’s understandable. You can love your city, as I do, and not love everything about it either,” De Niro said in the speech. “That may have been what I was thinking about when I said I wish you-know-who would leave this city. I don’t care where he goes, I just never thought he’d go to Washington. He’s a bad example of this country, this city.

The growing list of Hollyweird hypocrites to boycott

As if you didn’t already boycott Hollyweirdos, here’s a list of those who think their opinion matters to you. Don’t waste your money on their products.

Schumer trying to make all people happy

Amy Schumer

My act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy.” — Schumer on BBC’s Newsnight, a little over a month before her recent show in Tampa, where 200 people walked out after she called Trump an “orange, sexual assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.” Later Schumer, a survivor of sexual assault, asked the audience, “You know what I love? A famous guy that will just take me furniture shopping and just straight up grab my pussy.”

(Schumer later offered a sarcastic apology, saying: “Dearest Tampa, I’m sorry you didn’t want me, a comedian who talks about what she believes in, to mention the biggest thing going on in our country right now,” Schumer said reading the letter, noted People. “How could I think it was okay to spend five minutes having a peaceful conversation with someone with different views?

“After the show, I want you to know that I will go straight to a rehab facility that will teach me how to make all people happy. Both the rich, entitled, white people who are gonna vote for him and the very poor people — who’ve been tricked into it,” she added.

Schumer concluded: “… I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster. Shouldn’t have said that. I will never again say that he is an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.”)

Handler not playing with a full deck of cards

“It’s kind of great to have a person like that represent everything that’s wrong in the world. It’s always a good thing to look at somebody and say, ’That’s the worst thing that could happen.’ I think we should keep [Trump] in the spotlight— not as a president, obviously.” — Chelsea Handler at Variety’s Entertainment and Tech Summit, months after posting her naked body to Instagram in protest against Trump and admitting on Live With Kelly and Michael that she “bought a house in another country just in case” Trump wins.

(The worst thing that could happen? Being “grateful” for being able to safely abort the two babies you conceived as a teen. From CNN:

At 16, “I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should’ve been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex,” she said.

I wasn’t really playing with a full deck of cards, and when I got pregnant I just thought, Why not? I can have a baby,” she recalled. “Maybe I’ll have twins and give them rhyming names!” Instead, Handler said, her parents took her to Planned Parenthood and she had an abortion.

But that didn’t stop her from getting pregnant again that same year by the same boyfriend, she wrote. “Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it’s still necessary to make a thoughtful decision,” Handler said. “We all make mistakes all the time.”)

Damon thinking deeply about gun control

“[Trump] makes me nervous… There’s no way we can let this guy be the [president]. To let that dude have the nuclear football, are you kidding me? That’s dangerous. He’s impulsive and rash, and doesn’t seem to think deeply about too many things.” — Matt Damon on ABC’s Popcorn With Peter Travers. Damon’s feelings on Trump were made evident nearly a year earlier in an interview with a Spanish news agency when he called Trumps’ speech “xenophobic,” “dehumanizing” and “disgusting.”

(This from an actor who is anti-Second Amendment. On a promotional tour for his gun-heavy action series Bourne, he said, “It’s wonderful what Australia did because you guys haven’t had a mass shooting since you went, ‘No, we’re going to be sensible about this.’ And nobody’s rights have been infringed, you guys are fine. I wish we could be sensible like that but I don’t think that’s going to happen in my lifetime.”)

Margaret Cho

Hitler moved a nation with words, just words. So you have to expect this backlash. If you say something like that, as he has said, you must expect a backlash.” — Eva Longoria, who almost a year later delivered an impassioned speech at the DNC in which she said that Trump’s comments insult American families like hers.

Actor Robert De Niro threatens violence against Trump

liberal tolerance

In a video that aired yesterday on Fox TV’s “The [Megyn] Kelly File,” actor Robert De Niro lashed out at Donald Trump, saying he’d “like to punch him in the face.”

The 73-year-old actor also calls Trump many invectives: “blatantly stupid,” “a punk,” “a dog,” “a pig,” “a con,” “a mutt,” “a bullshit artist,” and “an idiot”.

As reported by Ted Johnson for Variety, Oct. 7, 2016:

De Niro’s remarks came in a video produced by Anonymous Content, which has been making a series of short interviews for a voter initiative called #VoteYourFuture. The director of De Niro’s video, Tom McCarthy, asked him, “What do you care about?”

De Niro’s anti-Trump remarks were so emphatic that the producers concluded that it could not be part of the campaign, which is non-partisan. But it was given to Kelly’s show for airing and publicists for the production firm released it to the media on Friday.
