It is no doubt that a lot of people actually “hate” Trump, in fact, they make sure that their opinions were heard especially on social media. Whatever Trump does or say, there will always be an equivalent comment to it, and they are too far from being nice. These people are considered to be very brave to make such remarks, well, probably because most of them are influential themselves.
Celebrities have been very vocal when it comes to their dislike towards the current US President Donald Trump. The president himself makes sure to fight back especially via his official Twitter account. He is known to have had a couple of feuds with some celebrities. This time around, veteran actor Robert De Niro actually made some not so nice comments by referring to the U.S. President as an “idiot.”
Robert De Niro Refers To Trump As An Idiot
For the second time around, Oscar winner Robert De Niro called Trump an idiot. The 74-year-old actor was at a fundraising event that promotes higher education known as the Fulfillment Fund, when he made these remarks. According to the actor, a college education is actually very significant in people’s lives, however, education must always come with humanity since, without it, it would simply be considered as ignorance.
This is where he used the president as an example, De Niro said that despite having a degree at the University of Pennsylvania, Trump is still an idiot. Trump has been very vocal and proud of himself for having an education from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, he even considers himself as a genius, especially in his tweets.
When he mentioned the president’s name, the audience booed, which then made him add that the people must do something about it. The actor even said how Trump “lacks any sense of humanity or compassion.” Despite all these remarks, De Niro said that he is actually trying not to politicize the event and that is simply not his am, however, he said that as long as the United States is under Trump’s leadership, then he will make sure to always speak his mind since not voicing out is considered to be a “villainy.”
Aside from talking about Trump being an idiot, he also encouraged the youth by saying that they don’t need to be a president. That there are actually a lot of decent jobs out there. If even they want it to become one, however, they must be willing to restore the dignity as well as the integrity of the job.
Recent survey says that Trump is the worst among all the presidents of the US
He actually made some similar remarks at the National Board of Review when he was introducing Meryl Streep for her best actress award. Also while he was giving a speech at the commencement exercises at Brown University, where he referred to the current United States situation as a “tragic comedy.”
Why People Don’t Like Trump
Robert De Niro is not alone, in fact, a lot of celebrities have bravely made sure that their voices are heard. Just like late show host Jimmy Kimmel, who has been known for targeting the Trump Administration especially their decisions on the current health insurances.
When he hosted the Oscars in 2017, he even made sure to include him in his monologue. Veteran actress and Academy-award winner Meryl Streep, also made some snag remarks towards the president when she was giving a speech after receiving her Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes for lifetime achievement last year. Trump impersonator and veteran actor Alec Baldwin, who is known for greatly impersonating the president even said that Trump has been abusing his power everywhere he goes, especially those who are “less powerful than him.”
Based on a survey from the members of the American Political Science Association, Donald Trump is the worst president the United States has ever had. This survey was actually conducted by Professor Brandon Rottinghaus. They conducted the same survey back in 2014 where Obama was at the 18th spot, but now he made it into the top 10. Rottinghaus, as well as his other colleagues who conducted the surgery, didn’t reveal who made it to the top, but according to him, one of the reasons for this is the fact that Trump has a way of making himself off-putting especially with his racist remarks and gender discrimination.
