VIDEO: De Niro Calls Trump a “Fake President,” Says Bloomberg “Might Be the One”

Iconic Hollywood actor Robert De Niro appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert where he called Trump a “fake President” and praised Michael Bloomberg as possibly “the one” to beat Trump. De Niro said he also likes Buttigieg, though he recognized Buttigieg is still young.

Per Huffpost, De Niro on Monday lamented what he described as the “heartbreaking” and “really, really serious situation” that America has found itself in under President Donald Trump.

“It’s like living in an abusive household,” the star of the new Netflix movie “The Irishman” told “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert. “You don’t know what’s going to happen next, what crazy thing is going to happen next, what’s going to make you say what the hell’s going on?”

Colbert suggested it was because “only one angry person gets to say what’s real.”

“Exactly,” De Niro responded. “And the truth is not from him, that’s for sure.”

De Niro also described Trump — who he has repeatedly attacked in recent years ― as “a fake president” and explained why he backed billionaire businessman and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, among others, in the 2020 Democratic race.
