We here Monkeys Fighting Robots try really hard to stay out of politics, but this year it is going to be hard as the pop culture, and political worlds merge. Luckily it’s October 8th, and we only have a little less than a month left of the chaos.
A video surfaced last night of Robert De Niro giving his thoughts on Presidential Candidate Donald Trump. If there is one thing the two-time Oscar winner can do, is give a speech. According to The Washington Post, it was supposed to be a quick, neutral video shot for a bipartisan campaign encouraging Americans to do their civic duty: vote.
Watch the video and post your comments in the section below.
‘I mean, he’s so blatantly stupid. 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.
Colin Powell said it best: He’s a national disaster. He’s an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country had gotten to the point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has.
He talks [about] how he wants to punch people in the face? Well, I’d like to punch him in the face. This is somebody that we want for president? 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.’ – Robert De Niro
