Robert De Niro Offers Update On Wanting to Punch Donald Trump

By Staff  |  11/10/2016

Robert De Niro appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, and addressed previous comments he made about his desire to punch Donald Trump in the face.

He tells Kimmel that he can no longer go through with that, but is still disappointed with the direction the country is taking.

"I'm not feeling good," De Niro told Kimmel, who then followed up with a punch inquiry. "I can't do that now. He's the President. But, you know, I have to respect that position though we all know what he... We have to see what he's going to do and how he's really going to follow through on certain things. As we even see now in a lot of cities, there's a lot of people getting very upset and protesting."

Back in October, De Niro appeared in a video filmed in collaboration with Anonymous Content, where he delivered a passionate anti-Trump message (see below). "He's so blatantly stupid," he says in the video. "He's a punk. He's a dog. He's a pig. He's a con, a bullshit artist, a mutt who doesn't know what he's talking about. Doesn't do his homework. Doesn't care. Thinks he's gaming society. Doesn't pay his taxes. He's an idiot. Colin Powell said it best, he's a national disaster. He's an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that the country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has. He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face? Well, I'd like to punch him in the face."
