Donald Trump doesn’t get it but he loves the attention. The latest celebrity who has questioned Donald Trump on his view regarding President Obama’s birthplace is Robert De Niro. If you remember, in the past several weeks, Donald Trump was the subject of Bill Cosby’s “Run, or Shut Up!” moment on NBC’s Today show. Most recently, Jerry Seinfeld backed out from a gig for Donald Trump’s son’s (Eric Trump) charity foundation because the comedian has felt uncomfortable with the statements The Donald is making about Barack Obama’s citizenship.
This is what De Niro has to say:
“I won’t mention names, but certain people in the news the last couple weeks, just, what are they doing? It’s crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up,” De Niro alluded. “Go get the facts before you start saying things about people.”
“Any of those people have shows on my network on Sunday night?” he inquired — De Niro confirmed that, indeed, Trump, who has been on a national campaign questioning the President’s birth certificate, was who he was talking about.
“It’s like a big hustle. It’s like being a car salesman. Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up. How dare you? That’s awful to do. To just go out and speak and say these terrible things? Unless you just wanna get over and get the job. It’s crazy.”
