I couldn't agree more with what many people are saying to you Mr. DeNiro. Please go fade away somewhere outside the United States of America. You've obviously had more than your fair share of liberal Kool-Aid, and, quite frankly you're spouting threats your decrepit body cannot back up.
I would love to come - grab you by the scruff of your wrinkly neck and escort you, and the other pathetic, rich, entitled entertainers (ha!) straight to the border. Go fade away, disappear...while we make America great again.

Bobby, when is the last time you worked all day for $40.00 ?? You are so out of touch with real people, living a real life, that you have no clue what you're talking about. What we had wasn't working, and that goes for Bush #2 also, Companies leaving the US, unvetted immigrants, broken promises, and the list goes on. And you wanted a proven liar, thief, accessory to murder in the White House.? What are you thinking ??
We've tried the status quo, time for a change.

You're a classic example of someone who forgot his roots (no detail required) and became cocky! Shame on you for not being patriotic and giving Trump a chance to perform - you will eat your words. Your humble parents would not be proud of you De Niro, nor are we. Stick to your fairytale, "no IQ required" scripts and ponder on your deplorable conduct. An end to your movies for us.

It's time to wake up now. Get this! The only reason you exist is for my entertainment. Some of you are beautiful. Some of you can deliver a line with such conviction that you bring tears to my eyes. Some of you are so convincing that you scare the crap out of me. And others are so funny you can make me laugh uncontrollably.
But you all have one thing in common. You only exist and have a place in my world to entertain me. That's it. Nothing else!
You make your living pretending to be someone else. You play dress-up like a 5-year-old. Your world is a make believe world. It is not real. It doesn't exist. You live for the camera while the rest of us live in the real world. Your entire existence depends on my patronage. I crank the organ grinder, and you dance.
Therefore, I don't care where you stand on issues. Honestly, your opinion means nothing to me. Just because you had a lead role in a movie about prostitution doesn't mean you know what it's like to be a prostitute. Your view matters far less to me than that of a someone living in Timbuktu.
Believe me or not, the hard truth is that you aren't real. I turn off my TV or shut down my computer, and you cease to exist. Once I am done with you, I go back to the real world until I want you to entertain me again.
I don't care that you think BP executives deserve the death penalty. I don't care what you think about the environment. I don't care if you believe fracking is bad. I don't care if you call for more gun control. I don't care if you believe in catastrophic human-induced global warming. And I could care less that you supported Hillary for President. Get back into your bubble. I'll let you know when I'm in the mood for something pretty or scary or funny.
And one other thing. What was with all this "I'll leave the country if Donald Trump wins"? Don't you know how stupid that made you sound? What did you think my reaction was going to be? I better not vote for Trump or we'll lose Whoopi Goldberg? Al Sharpton? Amy Schumer? Leave. I don't care! And don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. Oh by the way, is Clinton returning any of the money you so generously donated to her election?
Make me laugh. Make me cry. Even scare me. But realize this, the only words of yours that matter are scripted — just like your pathetic little lives. I may agree with some of you from time to time, but in the final analysis, it doesn't matter. In my world, you exist solely for my entertainment. So, just be quiet, and dance, monkey, DANCE!

I would like to say I like your roles in movies but hollywood is so unrealistic fantasy farytale ground for me. But I liked the way scarface went down; they did no take him alive. I respect the way you spoke against Trump publicly; so far I have seen none of the celebrities talk about reality honestly, but stupidly or submittingly or even both. The deception can be owerwhelming. It takes a lot these days to be ownminded but I found it strange so many people were watching your speech... I don`t see lesser evil in politics, Putin and China went down aswell. If you have money you should move to another country from my experience I know there will be no real resistance or revolution. I don`t believe in it atleast.

And you who said De Niro is wack, why would it be any loss at all to lose idiot "fan" like you? What kind of threat is that? You are saying losing that nothing you have and are and offer is bad? Do you even realise what kind of idiot you are?

Robert, I'm not going to verbally attack you, and I've enjoyed every movie you have acted in. Your a genuis on the stop and start set of Hollywood. What have you done however to promote unity in our great nation. My suggestion for you is to leave your unfounded and self serving comments to your bed partner! The typical Joe Plummer, ( me ) of this great nation doesn't give a rats ass what you think about our president. I voted for Obama twice! Well it appears that didn't work as well as I thought it would! There are many of us who appreciate what Mr Trump is doing. I feel you are able to still act because our country is still free and the greatest! Why don't you just shut your mouth for a while and let our President clean up this mess! Say something positive. I understand your self serving attitude if you don't, but the word will be out that you are a person with only a movie screen backbone.

Your comments about our president are pathetic. President Trump is attempting to make our country great again after the apathy of Obama and and people like you brought us down to the dirt level. If you had one iota of common sense you would realize how the liberal left destroyed what we once were. And why anybody would listen to a movie star just because they are a movie star is really pathetic. Hang it up old man. Do you think way too much of your own opinion.

Mr. De Niro,
our family, well mainly my father brought us to America he was born in 1942, from a small city, gotte, sicilia.
I support you, but not what you have said about the President of the U.S.
We sicilanos/Italian is came here with nothing... NOTHING! we left behind so much to come here for a better life, to be created by hatred and bullying and ABSOLUTELY no handouts from the government. To watch illegals come here and be treated like royalty while as now citizens we are dirt and my father a veteran.... gets nothing... how is this just? why should the West bow to the east? i understand, i know what it is to be outcast and my father your age very much understands... he gets swept aside in debt, he is an immigrant veteran, so where does he stand? where do WE stand? did we immigrant too early, did we work too hard to both assimilate and strive for that American dream? Stand with the Italian and Sicilian immigrants who came on boats with nothing to build a life for their family and taught their children that it is hard work and intelligence that will make your dreams take flight... not government handouts.

the working man is the tough guy... remember?

sincerely yours,
A fan, and fellow Italian,
Andrea <3

best of luck. Ciao.

I used to Proclaim you as one of the best actors ever. After your foolish and unhinged tirade over our president Donald Trump I no longer feel this way. If you manage to get another job acting in a movie I will definitely not watch it. I just don't understand why you actors feel that what you say about anything really matters. To be an actor you have to live in a fantasy world anyway that's apparently where you're at. Personally I don't think you ever left the opium den in Somewhere in Time.
You used to be my hero but now you're just another snowflake... my mantra? Ignore ignore ignore

Look you old grey haired asshole. I don't know who died and left you as the actors guild man. First you never were that great of an actor. You were lucky to be cast with really good Hollywood stars but you Robert on your own lacked acting and personality john Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman. These are great actors that do what the public wants to act in a picture we may find fun to watch and fun to talk about Look Robert even though I did like some of your movies from here on out If you persist in putting down My President Donald Trump and all the values he stands for then I don't respect you or your acting. Donald Trump is a hope for America, if you Robert care about america I suggest you get on the Trump American first band wagon or the next biggest crowd you will ever see is Fargo North Dakota

When you say you want to punch Our President in the face, or go to the UN to give him the finger, you're doing that to us, the 75 to 80% of your fan base that made you what you are! You're a disgusting fellow New Yorker, only I live in the good part of New York....the smart part, where people have common sense. If you're so unhappy in this great country of ours, then move. God knows all us idiot smart people made you rich enough to do anything you want. Maybe you could find a brain cell or two there, and get a little common sense. Better yet, just go away you liberal fuck!

Keep shooting your mouth off about Trump. You are part of the problem in this country, rich liberal elites that are out of touch with real people. I voted for Trump because I was finished with the democrats and the liberal establishment. Owanker eroded the things that meant something to me. He was as arrogant as you, and am glad your buddy Weinstein is smearing Hollywood, Liberals and arrogant crap heads like you….did you threaten to punch HW in the mouth? Nope you didn’t since he is your buddy and you support his behavior…..Also please Amazon dropped your project….lets hope there is more to come for you and your Hollywood and liberal turds.

You should understand that the public decides how to spend their discretionary income. As such you should know I will not ever go to a movie that you are in or watch anything that involves your participation. I'll go one step further...I will boycott all actors that bad mouth our President and are rude and disrectful. You should understand you are only an actor nothing else and depend on the public liking you and wanting to support you. If you offend people you.lose their support. It's that simple. The public doesn't care what actors think. They think they are out of touch with their over blown salaries. You all donated millions to Hillary who protects awful men like her husband and Weinstein. She takes donations from Arab countries who treat woman and the gay community horribly. Where is your outrage? Why aren't you condemning her hypocrisy? No you stand silent. You all knew about Weinstein and said nothing. Yet you pretend to support woman. You all have no credibility so shut up. We don't care what you think.

Trump is the best thing that has happened to normal people in America. He has done more positive things for us in 3 months then Obama did in 8 years. Go Trump, get a clue De Niro, stick to acting, and stay out of politics because you couldn’t be more off-base with reality and what most people in middle America voted for.

Yes you need to stay out of politics and since you think gobel warming is such a big deal why don't you take some of your millions of dollars and fund it then only reason you are for global warming is that you hold an Italian citizen ship and EUROPE SUPPORTS IT. SO you should go and live your life and don't worry about global warming cos there's nothing you can do to change it anyway.

It's impossible for the average American to imagine having all the money you have, and not doing
something meaningful with it! Instead, you keep seeking attention by bad mouthing President Trump!
We are beginning to think you aren't very smart, and obviously are so vacant that you can't find anything to do(or any movie to make). Are all your contemporaries in Hollywood impressed? Or do they find you
a hateful bore like the rest of us?

I have been a fan of your acting for more than 30 years. However, your recent public statements and opinions of the President of the United States of America are not only disgraceful and disgusting, but they truly show your inability to express yourself in an intelligent and mature manner. I realize that you're an actor which requires nearly no education and/or class but you should at least attempt to speak with appropriate tact when you publicly attempt to condemn the POTUS. After all, he is in fact a self made billionaire twice over and has accomplished more in his life thus far than you and every member of your family will accomplish in your lives combined. Before you publicly speak negatively about someone coming from your position as an actor, you may want to consider that your badly worded commentary just demonstrates that you are not only jealous of President Trump, but that you are also far less educated and successful. Keep this in mind, you get paid to entertain us much like a joker in a kingdom. If we wanted to here political opinions from someone it would certainly be from someone with success based on intelligence, not from some washed up joker from an ancient kingdom.

Dear Mr. De Niro,
Thanks for taking such a stance as an actor and influencer, I think it is vital to discuss how goverment is runned and how this current president uses media and other channels to blow smoke screens to hide his unability to be presidential and make America great as promised. History will show you correct and in good order;) //J
