Robert De Niro slams Donald Trump, kisses Meryl Streep

Robert De Niro slams Donald Trump, kisses Meryl Streep

"This f-- idiot is the president". "That story took place almost 50 years ago, but there are many parallels today, obviously".

And again just like 1971 the press is distinguishing itself with fearless, exacting journalism.

"The movie gave us glimpses of President Nixon as delusional, narcissistic, petty".

De Niro was on stage Tuesday night to introduce the recipient of the National Board of Review's "best actress" award, Meryl Streep for he role in "The Post", but took the opportunity to rip into the president, according to a transcript of the event.

In Oct. 2016, during the presidential campaign, De Niro recorded an anti-Trump video that got more than half a million views on Facebook, as HuffPost reported.

"Not even if the volleyball was a stable genius", De Niro quipped, referencing Trump's tweet last weekend declaring himself "like, really smart". The actor clearly looks outraged with Trump as he praised the movie. "The baby-in-chief - the Jerk-off-in-chief I call him". But Trump is in your face every day doing something that is absolutely - what word can I use? He's also said that Trump "sullied the presidency", and that America under Trump has become a "tragic dumbass comedy". Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images Lupita Nyong'o kept the fashion statement going.

"That brings us to 'The Post, ' and another signature performance from the extraordinary Meryl Streep". Angelina Weiss/AFP/Getty Images Actress Isabelle Huppert also sticks with the monochrome look. "Angela Weiss/AFP/Getty Images 'Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot steps out in a bright blue, however.

Meryl, of course, has a famous feud with Trump, after taking several brutal jabs at him during a speech at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards. "Evan Agostini/Invision/AP 'Call Me By Your Name" actor Michael Stuhlbarg, right, and wife Mai-Linh Lofgren are in attendance. When Tina Fey introduced Mr. Hanks for best actor, she joked that he was such a national treasure, he would soon be drilled for oil. However, Meryl who plays Katharine Graham in Steven Spielberg's newspaper drama "The Post" did not seem to mind as she greeted him with a kiss as she received her award.
