Robert De Niro says America has become a 'tragic, dumbass comedy'
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (Brown University / CNN Newsource / WKRC) - Robert De Niro didn’t hold back when offering his opinion on the current state of our country’s affairs while speaking at the Brown University commencement on Saturday.
Just a day after referring to the current political climate as “nightmarish” and calling President Trump an “idiot,” De Niro gave the following ominous sound bite:
“In movie terms, when you started school the country was an inspiring, uplifting drama. You’re graduating into a tragic, dumbass comedy,” De Niro said.
He continued: “My advice is to lock the Van Winkle gates and stay here. But if you do leave, work for the change. Work to stop the insanity. Start now so the Class of 2018 will graduate into a better world.”
