Add actor Robert De Niro to the list of rabid Trump haters whose dreams seeing President Trump frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs just won’t die.
The foul-mouthed star of such enduring classics as Goodfellas, Heat, Casino and The Godfather Part II made a career of playing gangsters but in real life, he is just another limousine liberal who presents himself as a phony tough guy.
As one of the most unhinged Hollywood figures whose lives have been ruined after Trump won the election and deprived them of all of those swanky parties at the Clinton White House, the now 75-year-old has joined the resistance rabble at anti-democratic rallies and awards events where he never fails to unleash a torrent of F-bombs all directed at the president.
The aging De Niro hasn’t had what could be classified as a successful movie in nearly two decades but he has plied his trade as a thespian by playing special counsel Robert Mueller on NBC’s flagship Saturday Night Live which hasn’t actually been funny since he was actually relevant.
Even though the real Mueller rolled snake eyes on his sweeping Russian collusion witch hunt, De Niro continues to display all of the classic traits of a cult member with the exception of shaving his head and chopping his own balls off.
Now the pathetic old codger is clinging to the hope that Mueller has been playing possum and after the highly anticipated Thursday release of his report, that the deep state dirty cop will still make the pinch on Trump.

Actor Robert De Niro says he still hopes President Trump is convicted for colluding with Russia during the 2016 election, despite a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report suggesting there’s no evidence for such a claim.
“I might even be happier the day that Mueller puts him in handcuffs, takes him in an orange jumpsuit and puts him away for a long time,” De Niro said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
De Niro added earlier in the interview that he thought it was his “civic duty” to play the part of Mueller on “Saturday Night Live.”
“I consider it my civic duty to do that part — just to be there because [Mueller] doesn’t say much, but he doesn’t have to. It’s that simple,” De Niro said.
Well, you know what they say about wishes? You can wish in one hand and defecate in the other and see which one gets full first.
Trump hasn’t held back with how he feels about De Niro either:
Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received too many shots to the head by real boxers in movies. I watched him last night and truly believe he may be “punch-drunk.” I guess he doesn’t…

Like his fellow celeb squawkers, De Niro is going to be severely disappointed when Trump steamrolls whichever socialist conspiracy theorist that the Democrats trot out next year and who will face the same fate as the actor’s Best Actor award-winning performance of boxer Jake LaMotta in Raging Bull when he was beaten to a bloody pulp by Sugar Ray Robinson.
To borrow from another one of the actor’s bygone days of cinematic success, Trump’s reelection will likely break the star mentally and send De Niro into therapy.
