Robert de Niro has skelled Donald Trump lelik uit, saying: “I’d like to punch him in the face.”
The veteran actor made a video as part of a campaign to encourage Americans to vote, and gave the Republican Party candidate a thorough tongue-lashing.
“I mean he is so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk, a dog, he’s a pig,” says a visibly angry De Niro.
“Colin Powell [former secretary of state] said it best: “He’s a national disaster. He’s an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry this country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has.
“He talks how he’d like to punch people in the face?… Well, I’d like to punch him in the face.”
De Niro concludes: “This is somebody that we want for president? I don’t think so.
“What I care about is the direction of this country and what I’m very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump.
“If you care about your future, vote for it.”
