Robert De Niro Celebrates Trump Verdict: ‘This Is My Country – This Guy Wants to Destroy It’

Leftist Hollywood star Robert De Niro has responded to the “guilty” verdict in President Donald Trump’s “hush money” by celebrating the outcome.

The actor has a long-running feud with Trump and was delighted that the weaponized justice system was able to convict the 45th president.

However, De Niro claims he is concerned for his safety as one of the more prominent anti-Trump Democrat operatives.

De Niro weighed in on the jury’s verdict in the “hush money” trial.

“I think justice was served,” De Niro told Variety at an event for his new film Ezra.

“This never should have gotten to this stage,” the actor continued.

“I don’t want to be talking, but I am so upset by it.

“I have to say something. This is my countryThis guy wants to destroy it. Period. He’s crazy*.”

When asked if he ever feared for his safety, De Niro said he did.

However, he claims he refuses to be intimidated by Trump or threats from his supporters.

“You think about that,” he said.

“It makes me more angry, but I have to be afraid to be intimidated.

“And that’s why I said, you’re not going to intimidate us.

“People are fed up, they’re going to fight back.

“That’s not what we’re about in this country.”

De Niro’s comments came on the same day that Trump ridiculed him with a deep fake online video.

After calling De Niro a “wacko” in response to his unhinged rant outside Manhattan criminal court, Trump posted a hilarious deepfake video that manipulated the actor’s voice to call himself “washed up.”

Trump posted the video from his Truth Social account.

It features De Niro at a press conference organized by the Biden campaign outside the “hush money” trial.

It also includes the same honking car alarm that accompanied the original.

However, in the deepfake version, the Academy Award winner calls himself a “scared little man” and a “sicko” with “lots of skeletons in my closet.”

It also insults his stature, calls Trump a “real man,” and includes crude references to gay sex.

“I don’t know why they made this podium so high,” the actor says in a manipulated voice that resembles his own.

“I told them I’m coming straight from the bathhouse and didn’t have my platform shoes with me.

“I’m speaking to you today because I’m a scared little man, a washed-up actor with lots of skeletons in my closet.

“People like me need Joe Biden and power not because he’s any good, but because he enjoys the same sick perversions.”

The manipulated voiceover for De Niro then says he only gets to “pretend to be tough and powerful on a movie set.”

“If Donald Trump was in front of me right now I’d punch myself right in the face, get down on my hands and knees…” the deepfake version of De Niro continues.

The deepfake also includes a nod to DeNiro’s performance in “Meet the Parents,” saying if Trump gets re-elected “sickos like me will be permanently banned from the circle of trust.”

WATCH:

The video comes after DeNiro hammered Trump at the Biden campaign press conference in New York.

During his deranged statement, De Niro smeared Trump as a “clown” and a would-be “dictator.”

“I love this city I don’t want to destroy it,” De Niro said.

“Donald Trump wants to destroy not only the city but the country and eventually he could destroy the world.”

He also claimed that if Trump gets re-elected, he would never relinquish power.

“I can tell you right now,” De Niro said.

“He will never leave. He will never leave.

“You know that. He will never leave”

He was heckled by Trump supporters during the appearance.

“We New Yorkers used to tolerate him when he was just another grubby real estate hustler masquerading as a big shot,” De Niro said of Trump.

“A two-bit playboy lying his way into the tabloids. A clown.”

“But this city is pretty accommodating. We make room for clowns,” the actor continued.

“But not a person like Trump, who will eventually run the country, that does not work and we all know that.”

Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller followed up with his own press conference slamming De Niro as a “washed-up actor.”
