(WARNING: Graphic fake tough guy language)
If there’s one consolation to fake tough guy Robert De Niro being an insufferable buffoon-like curmudgeon, it could be the fact that the 75-year-old doesn’t seem to understand the concept of “fake news.” But, he’s a member of the Hollywood Communistic Cult, so intelligence isn’t exactly one of his strong suits.
De Niro made an appearance at Canadian kinda-comedienne Samantha Bee’s “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” on Friday, a yearly event featuring Bee to counter the actual White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD) during the administration of President Donald Trump, and stayed his unoriginal self with a scripted trash talking segment where he called Trump a “relentless and unrepentant, lying scumbag.”
De Niro said he was at the event to support the First Amendment, while bashing Trump’s supporters for “not” giving “a shit” about the president’s actions. Basically, De Niro was on stage to perform a live commercial for the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), whose mission is to “defend the right of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal.” The only problem with that is you’d be lucky to find more than a handful of actual journalists these days.
“I’m happy to stand with [Canadian] Samantha Bee tonight to support the First Amendment and the right of the president to be a relentless and unrepentant, lying scumbag, the right of his supporters not to give a shit, and our right to do something about it.”
While De Niro couldn’t back up his trash talk towards Trump with any substance proving his point, who better to try and identify “a relentless and unrepentant, lying scumbag” than a guy who is celebrated for playing more relentless and unrepentant, lying scumbags than De Niro?
The actual funny part — you know, besides the parts that the sheep in the audience roared for — came when De Niro spoke about “fake news.” It was as if De Niro was given an alternative definition for what constitutes actual fake news and just went with it.
Here’s what De Niro said about what he thinks “fake news” might be:
I just gotta say, I f***in’ love fake news. If I get a bad review, fake news. Some nosy reporter finds out I never finished high school, fake news. Then the president stole my phrase. You might say he moved in on it like a b***h. All that fake news. Turns out it’s real news, or as we in this room call it, news.
Fake news is when the majority of the media tries to pin collusion with a foreign adversary to fix an election on someone who didn’t do those things. Fake news is when the majority of the media jumps on an alleged hate crime hoax because they’re determined to make all of a politician’s supporters as racist. Fake news is when the entirety of the media attempt to ruin a 15-year-old boy’s life in order to push a false narrative that all of a politician’s supporters are racist.

Maybe De Niro should’ve finished high school. Then he might have an idea of the difference between the bubble of the world he lives in and reality.
