De Niro: let us enjoy your movies. Let not your brand be watered down by inane piffle, emphasis mine:
“I think of the possibility of the government being shut down, and I say, ‘How did we get to this point?’” he said, according to Movieline. “I remember it happened years ago. And I just say, ‘How did we ever get to that point?’ Because the people who suffer are the one who have jobs where every week, they’ve gotta make these payments. How did we get there? What is this about? This is crazy. And I know Obama was trying to bridge the gap. His intentions are really good. Maybe some things are not as good as we all would like, but his intentions were right. A lot of these guys, they’re intentions are not even good. They’re just playing the game. And they’re playing with people’s lives.
How can you say that without barfing all over yourself, man? “Well, if he can stand there and emote well, it has to count for something!” Nonsense. You have to look at the results. How is it that we have to remind Robert Flipping De Niro to man up?
De Niro campaigned for Obama in 2008; during one event during the Democratic primary that year, De Niro said:
“I’ve never made a speech like this at a political event before. So what am I doing here? I’m here because finally one person has inspired me. One person has given me hope. One person has made me believe that we can make a change.”
Robert De Niro. Once an icon of American manhood, now just another sad piece of twisted metrosexual wreckage.
