(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Actor and father of seven children, Robert De Niro, has returned to publicly criticizing Donald Trump, labeling those who favor him “insane” during a news conference on Sunday at the Cannes Film Festival.
De Niro likened Trump to the deadly antagonist in Martin Scorsese’s film Killers of the Flower Moon. De Niro plays William Hale in the new movie, which had its global debut this weekend at Cannes.
Hale was a cattle magnate who was found guilty in 1929 of killing a member of the Osage nation for oil rights.
He told reporters that evil still exists in the world and that former President Trump is an example.
“Of course, we can see it now. We all know about the person I’m going to talk about, but I won’t mention his name because he is a moron. Consider yourself smart. Hale had a lot of intelligence. The frightening aspect about it is that it’s a racist systematic issue.”

He continued later: “Look, with Trump, some still believe he can do a decent job. Consider how absurd that is.”
“Killers of the Flower Moon,” which Paramount and Apple jointly funded, will premiere in theaters in October before making an unspecified streaming debut on Apple TV+.
Based on David Grann’s non-fiction best seller of the same name, the film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Lilly Gladstone, tells the story of the Osage Indians killed in Oklahoma in the 1920s because they were fighting for ownership of their oil rights.
Robert De Niro expressed his animosity toward the president during the Trump administration, frequently using foul language.
The actor repeatedly yelled “Fuck Trump!” on stage at the 2018 Tony Awards, according to Breitbart News. The audience applauded him for rising after his furious rants.
