In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, actor and anti-Trump hysteric Robert De Niro called President Trump a “criminal who will stop at nothing,” and warned that if Trump is re-elected in November, the United States will be “into fascism, period.”
“[Trump is] a criminal who will stop at nothing [and] do anything to win,” De Niro ranted. “We have to win it. Everybody has to join. We have to speak out and win this fight, period. We can’t let this go further. If [he gets] another four years, we’re into fascism, American-style, period. It’s unimaginable what will happen. We would survive but it would be irreparable damage. In some ways now there’s irreparable damage because the world looks at us like we’re crazy, allowing this crazy person and administration and enablers.
“We have to vote him out of office and even then it’s going to be a problem. This guy is something we don’t understand, and a lot of people don’t understand. His logic, his mindset, it’s scary. It’s like they say it’s a ‘cult,’ and it is. And they don’t care what this person does. But they will care when they are directly affected by his behavior and the behavior of his enablers.”
This kind of absurd fear-mongering is exactly why we shouldn’t give clueless celebrities a media megaphone.
