Robert De Niro, the Hollywood icon who once said he’d like to punch President Trump in the face is back at it again, but this time, he’s punched the entire United States in the face, right in front of a packed audience in the Middle East.
De Niro reportedly spoke at Dubai’s World Government Summit on Sunday, and said the U.S. is a “backward” country that is suffering from a “temporary case of insanity.”
The Washington Times reported:
He said that in the country he’s describing, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency suggested last week that global warming may be a good thing for humanity.
“I am talking about my own country, the United States of America. We don’t like to say we are a ‘backward’ country so let’s just say we’re suffering from a case of temporary insanity,” he added.
De Niro received applause and laughs when he said the U.S. “will eventually cure itself by voting our dangerous leader” out of office. He spoke Sunday at Dubai’s World Government Summit.
