Whether onscreen or off, Robert De Niro’s never been one to mince words. Now, his straight talk has turned the air blue at CNN.
De Niro, currently starring in the new Martin Scorsese film The Irishman, appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday morning, where the outspoken Trump critic once again lashed out at the president.
“This guy should not be president, period,” the Oscar winner told CNN host Brian Stelter.
Stelter then pointed out the flak De Niro has received from those, including Fox News pundits, who say he should keep out of politics. The actor raised ire when he declared “F*** Trump” during the 2018 Tony Awards.
De Niro’s response to Stelter was just as raw. (The video clip posted below includes swearing.)
“F*** ‘em,” he said of his critics, raising his arms for emphasis. “F*** ‘em.”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) claimed that the Ukraine phone call President Trump had with its president Volodymyr Zelensky would take him out, saying he would “choke on this supposed nothing burger.”
In response to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) assessment that the phone call – the transcript of which was released by the Trump administration earlier this week – was simply a big fat “nothing burger,” Blumenthal took the analogy to a malicious place.
“Donald Trump is going to choke on this supposed nothing burger,” Blumenthal told Fox News Thursday. “He will go down with this supposed nothing burger in his throat because what it shows is repeated, concerted, premeditated criminal conduct.”
Brexit and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson suffered yet another setback after the Supreme Court ruled his proroguing of Parliament illegal. I’m no British legal scholar, and I certainly don’t want to be, but from what I understand the arguments used seem incredibly dangerous.
In effect, the plaintiffs argued that if the Prime Minister can suspend Parliament for any length of time, say three days, it would be legally no different then him suspending Parliament for a year or, even, indefinitely.
That’s a dangerous line of argument given the more than 300+ year history of this process, with the Prime Minister proroguing Parliament under far more dubious conditions in the past. This does limit the role of the Government to conduct business and set the agenda, especially if and when the day comes that Parliament is not staffed by people who are loyal to their constituents and not the political elite.

In addition to declaring the “OK” hand symbol and bowl cuts are now “hate symbols,” the ADL has also declared “anti-Antifa images” are “hate symbols.”
The ADL writes on their website:
Although white supremacist animus is often thought of as being directed against religious, racial and ethnic minorities, a significant portion of their hateful rhetoric is directed against the political left, including both the mainstream and far left. For example, a common alt right meme offers “free helicopter rides” to people on the left, a reference to the tactic used by right-wing dictatorships in Argentina and Chile of throwing left-wing critics of the regime from helicopters.
George Soros financed radical environmental groups partnering in this week’s “Global Climate Strike” to the tune of nearly $25 million, according to a new report.
At least 22 of the left-wing activist groups listed as partners in the Global Climate Strike received $24,854,592 in funding from liberal billionaire George Soros between 2000-2017 through his Open Society Network, Joseph Vazquez reported Thursday for the Media Research Center.
Though ostensibly ignited by the protests of 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, the Global Climate Strike has borne from the outset the indelible fingerprints of well-funded, radical environmental activists. As it turns out, much of the funding has been coming from professional disrupter George Soros.

“It is a racist shame by any measure, a self-imposed humiliation that will cling to Justin Trudeau for life, regardless of how Canada’s next election ends up,” the Toronto Star wrote upon publishing the full backstory behind Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s blackface scandal.
The publication has gotten hold of a previously unreleased high-quality video of Trudeau’s third blackface incident, after a grainy and very brief version had been first released by Global News.
“It was a costume day for river guides on the whitewater rafting operation that I worked at in the summer between ‘92 and ’94, roughly,” Trudeau had admitted apologetically over a week ago after the brief, grainy clip had initially surfaced.

Lashana Lynch is shaking up the James Bond franchise.
The actress, who’s been cast in the upcoming James Bond movie, reportedly as 007, has been photographed for the first time on the set of Bond 25, officially titled No Time to Die, in Italy.
Lynch, already familiar to Captain Marvel fans, will give an historic performance, as she’ll be the first woman to fill the iconic role. Her casting has divided fans, even though she’ll only have Bond’s old agent number. Daniel Craig will be back for one final outing as the suave spy, but the movie depicts a retired Bond being called back into service. He faces off against a villain played by Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek.

Thomas Gilbert Jr., the Princeton graduate who killed his father over a decrease in his allowance, was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison for the crime, according to multiple reports.
A jury rejected an insanity defense put forth by Gilbert and his family as a judge in the Manhattan court handed down a sentence of life in prison with a possibility of parole after 30 years, which the New York Times noted is the maximum penalty allowed under the law.
Gilbert was sentenced on September 27, nearly three months after he was convicted in Manhattan, and was ultimately found guilty of murder in the second degree and two counts of criminal weapon possession.
A Texas sheriff’s deputy and observant Sikh who made national headlines after being granted permission to wear his turban and beard while in uniform was fatally shot Friday during a routine traffic stop.
Sandeep Dhaliwal pulled over a car just before 12:30 p.m. and had what appeared to be a peaceful interaction with the driver, according to Maj. Mike Lee of the Harris County Sheriff’s Department, who addressed the shooting in a press conference.
In a review of the dash cam footage, Lee said that, at first, “it looked to just be conversational ― there was no combat, no arguing, just looked like a routine traffic stop that we conduct every day.”
As an officer for the Chicago Police Department, Carrie Steiner grew numb to trauma.
One day in 2001, while waiting for her partner during roll call, she was struck with the news of his death. He had struggled with alcoholism and died of positional asphyxia in his car after drinking the night before.
“I had to suck it up so no one would see me cry,” Steiner told HuffPost.
She excused herself to the bathroom and wept. When she finally composed herself, she was sent out on patrol, alone and without her partner.
