Robert De Niro Shuts Down Trump in 55-Second Video: 'I'd Like to Punch Him in the Face'
The actor is urging voters to consider their options for the next president of the United States
The actor, 73, released a video through Anonymous Content and their voteyourfuture.us campaign in which he directly addresses all U.S. voters regarding the potential election of the GOP presidential candidate.
“He’s so blatantly stupid,” he said in the video, which was exclusively obtained by Megyn Kelly‘s Kelly File. “He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con — a bulls–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.”
He continued his disparaging remarks about Trump, who most recently made headlines for making lewd remarks about women in a 2005 conversation with Today‘s Billy Bush.
“Colin Powell said it best –he’s a national disaster,” he said, referring to a June email the former Secretary of State sent that described Trump as a “national disgrace.” “He’s an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country has gotten to the point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has.”

And then De Niro threw the biggest punch — literally.
“He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face,” he said. “Well, I’d like to punch him in the face.”
Toward the end of the video, De Niro asked viewers about this upcoming election — and the option of voting for the controversial businessman-turned-politician.
“This is somebody that we want for president?” he said. “I don’t think so. What I care about is the direction of this country and what I’m very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump. If you care about your future, vote for it.”
