Actor and Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer Robert De Niro has finally jumped the shark, sharing director Martin Scorsese’s suspicion that the President will start “a war” in order to secure a third term in office.
“He’s going to be history at one point, though he’d love to be president for life,” De Niro told the Daily Beast in an interview. “He jokes about it. I think that if he became president for a second term he’d try to have a third term, and let smarter people manipulate it into getting us into some kind of altercation: a war.
“The only other president who served a third term was Roosevelt because he was in a war, and this fool would go and start something. This was what Marty Scorsese was saying, and I said, ‘Marty, I never thought of that. I never thought he’d go for a third term if there was a war or something,’” De Niro added.
De Niro doesn’t seem aware that Roosevelt was already into his 3rd term when we entered WWII. Also, at the time there was no 22nd Amendment limiting presidents to two terms.
