Just when I am tempted to throw in the towel on the current scene and those involved in the middle of it…
First, some aggravating news. Shortly following that, something to suggest there might be light breaking ahead…
From Godfather.com’s Warner Todd Huston:
“Actor Robert De Niro has been turning increasingly to the left and making a fool of himself in public. Maybe some people are getting tired of his childish act because at a recent event the actor was booed for attacking Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. … The award-winning actor proves why actors often need other people to put compelling words in their mouths because De Niro once again made himself look childish with a foul mouth at a fundraiser for Children’s Diabetes.”
Factor in those details a moment and the situation becomes especially repellant: a) a fundraiser; b) to fight a serious disease; c) afflicting children…
De Niro transformed that event into his platform of choice for airing a tasteless diatribe against the president’s Supreme Court pick.
Was it really tasteless, you might ask? Read below, keeping in mind the venue, and you decide:
“‘The drinks, wine, and beer are flowing. But be careful if you have too much, you may end up on the Supreme Court,’ De Niro said slurring his words in a video published by TMZ.”
Plainly, although Justice K was the direct butt of the 75-year-old thespian’s slanderous jibe, it was actually intended as a blast at the fellow who nominated Kavanaugh – that would be, Donald Trump. One needn’t look far to find proof of De Niro’s loathing for “45.”
Breibart: “The Goodfellas actor made headlines for saying ‘F*ck Trump!’ at the Tony Awards this summer. … ‘It’s no longer “down with Trump. It’s “f*ck Trump!”’ he said.”
To a high-school assembly: “What does the truth even mean today? I mean, if you’re Donald Trump it doesn’t mean anything. If you’re cowardly Republican enablers in Congress you don’t let the truth stand in the way of pathetically clinging to power. Our country is led by a president who believes he can make up his own truth. And we have a word for that — bullsh*t.”
Still unconvinced DT is not the actor’s number one?
He also slammed Trump as “a congenital liar” and a “mean-spirited, soulless, amoral, abusive con-artist son of a b*tch.”
It seems like, most of the time his Hollywood peers and fans have either been energized by his scrofulous snipes or not particularly put out by them, at least.
So what happened at this most recent eruption? Godfather.com provides the answer:
“[A]fter he made his ‘joke,’ the seemingly drunken actor was met with a sound his highness is not used to hearing; boos.”
More details from TMZ:
“Besides the fact that he butchered the delivery of the line — stumbling over his words — it’s clear he chose the wrong topic to bring up at a ceremony for the Children’s Diabetes Foundation. The reactions to his joke were mixed, some nervously laughing … others booing.”
I really don’t mean to put people in boxes, but I would have assumed all along that De Niro is a liberal – hey, he’s a professional actor born and bred in Manhattan (New York City!). If that’s not “a given” that one will end up being a politically correct, chi-chi member of the Democratic party? It’s a safe bet, at a minimum.
What I didn’t realize, is what a mean-spirited, venomous leftist the Academy-Award winner has turned out to be. Yikes.
He’s clearly decided to partake, with profanatory brio, of the nasty progressivism which is all the rage – and I use that term advisedly – nowadays.
It’s truly a shame, too; and not just for ideological reasons. De Niro’s catalog boasts an impressive sampling of the most consequential, most effusively celebrated films of the modern era. From a purely aesthetic perspective, not a few of his works are undeniable masterpieces.
But the actor’s hammeringly raunchy pugnaciousness on the political front is becoming an intensifying turn-off. No denying that. I can separate an individual’s artistic product from the crassness of the individual himself only so far and only for so long. Bobby D is reaching that limit with me.
As it seems, he may be with others – a few of whom, apparently, showed up to help raise money for kids with a dangerous medical condition and were subjected therein to a shabby blast of an actor’s anti-Kavanaugh (again, anti-Trump) opinion.
One of the most compelling segments in which De Niro ever performed over the course of his widely feted and storied career is the “forgiveness” scene in 1986’s The Mission. Sometime in the mid-18th-century, a formerly hard-hearted murderer finds assurance of forgiveness at the top of a South American waterfall.
As he finally reaches the moment when he knows his guilt has been washed away, his tears of grief, relief, and joy intermingle. Priests and tribesmen gather round, embracing him and celebrating together at the sight of a soul returning to God. It’s thrilling cinema, indeed. De Niro is flatly peerless in the performance.
In 2018, Robert De Niro is making it more and more difficult for me to appreciate his work in clips like that one. Maybe he could learn a thing or two from his character in “The Mission?”
Hey, RD! Enough already of the vile, theatrical hatred. Repent! Knock off the indecency and try to show a little public restraint. You might end up feeling a whole lot better about yourself, about life in general – and you might not get booed again by folks who’ve had their fill of your loutish shenanigans.

Tom Arnold Threatened To Cut Off Trump’s Head – Realizes Big Mistake Too Late
The GOP just came out with an election ad that depicts violence from the left. Keeping with that message, actor Tom Arnold just proved how true it is.
You have to wonder what’s going through the minds of Hollywood Democrats who, after all of President Trump’s successes, still go on wild rants & even threaten him physically. Do they even live in the same world that we do? Too much cocaine maybe.
The Gateway Pundit reported that:
“Tom Arnold issued a thinly veiled threat to President Trump over the weekend.
The washed-up far-left actor is very vocal about his hatred for President Trump but he took it to the next level this weekend.
Tom Arnold got triggered over president Trump’s recent comment at a Montana rally wherein he made a joke about Rep. Gianforte body slamming a liberal journalist.
First, Tom Arnold challenged President Trump to a fight at “any rally” between now and the midterms.
“I say put up or shut up @realDonaldTrump Me vs You. For America. First body slam wins. Any Rally. Any Time. Between now & the midterms,” Tom Arnold said in a tweet Friday.

Tom Arnold said, “I’m pretty fat myself, but yeah I’d kick his ass buddy” in response to a Twitter user who said “Tom, he outweighs you by about 300 lbs, but i would still bet on you.”
Tom Arnold then took his rhetoric and threats to the next level when he responded to a Twitter user who said Kathy Griffin should officiate the fight between him and Trump.
“Next time Kathy won’t be holding his fake head!” Tom Arnold said referring to Kathy Griffin’s Trump beheading photoshoot. (screenshot of tweet below in case of deletion)
You asked him to fight you, and responded with “next time Kathy Griffin won’t be holding his fake head”, which suggested you would kill him in your proposed fight @SecretService pic.twitter.com/Mn3A9iOSRG

At the time of this publication, the threatening tweet is still on Twitter–Trump-haters can tweet vile threats to President Trump and his supporters without fear of reprisal.
Twitter never takes action against celebrity accounts that tweet threats to Trump.
Peter Fonda previously called for President Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron to be kidnapped and put in a cage with pedophiles and Twitter took zero disciplinary action against Fonda.
In contrast, Trump supporters are banned and suspended from Twitter on a daily basis without explanation.”
Loudmouth LaVar Ball Makes Nasty Announcement About Trump And His Supporters – BAD Move!
President Trump is known to have detractors and those who wish him ill. It has almost become a competitive sport within the mainstream media as well as the athletic and entertainment industry. Which is why the comments of LaVar Ball, a former pro-National Football League, and National Basketball League player should not shock you one bit. But it should surely disgust you. Even if there are those who do not like the president, the least they can do is provide him basic respect and decency. However, all of that is missing in Ball’s recent comments.
Total Pro Sports reported,
“If there’s one person who knows all about the controversy surrounding the President, it’s LaVar Ball. The CEO of Big Baller Brand had an infamous run-in with the current President of the United States when his middle son got himself arrested for stealing in China. There just might be another run-in brewing. A few days ago, Trump tweeted that Don Lemon was the “Dumbest man on television” that made LeBron James look smart, which “was hard to do.” That brought about so much criticism in the days following, especially after the Los Angeles Lakers superstar had opened his new I Promise school. In a recent interview with TMZ, Ball outlined what some of the reasons were when asked whether Trump is racist.
“Do I think he’s racist? Yes, he’s racist. Everybody know that. Everybody knows that. That’s not a secret. It’s not a secret. If you’re bothering a lot of black folks, I’m going to say you’re racist. If you’re bothering a lot Hispanics, I’m going to say you’re racist. If you messing with everybody but whoever is not your kind, whoever is your kind you’re not messing with, I call you racist if you like that. That’s easy to spot out.”
Ball, a former athlete, is now a media personality and businessman with three sons who all play professional basketball. One for the Los Angeles Lakers, one who played on scholarship at UCLA, and one for the Los Angeles Ballers. He serves as the Chief Executive Officer of his sports apparel company known as Big Baller Brand while he simultaneously founded the Junior Basketball Association (JBA).
However, in the past few years Ball has made media headlines all over the world for his controversial and outrageous statements. He claimed that one of his son’s Lonzo is better than world-renowned basketball player Stephen Curry. At the same time, he also alleged that he could beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one basketball game. Since then he has received praise and criticism, and his remarks have led to television appearances which have received major attention from high profile sports media outlets.
But it was his problems with President Trump that has been getting him into hot water. Ball’s son was one of the UCLA students who was detained for shoplifting in a high-end shopping center in Shanghai, China. The players were accused by police of shoplifting high-end Louis Vuitton sunglasses at a store in the mall. After President Trump and his administration made a plea to the Chinese government to release them from their charges they were set free.
President Trump took to social media to say that the students were headed to jail and if it were not for his intervention they would still be there. Furthermore, that despite what he did for them he did not think they would say thank you. Ball tweeted back a response which insinuated that President Trump did nothing to help Ball’s son and teammates get out of Chinese prison. When Ball appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo shortly thereafter he still refused to thank the president.
President Trump responded by calling Ball a poor man’s version of Don King and calling him an ungrateful fool. A short while later, Ball’s son and his teammates were suspended indefinitely even after their public thank you where they expressed gratitude to the president. Ball continued to double down, refusing to thank him even after some time had passed.
It is very clear that Ball is highly ungrateful. President Trump hit it right on the head, there is no doubt about it. Much like other Hollywood entertainers, politicians, and detractors who trash the president Ball’s bad move will likely lead to him getting the Trump curse. One where public figures trash the president and as a result lose their career, lose notoriety and all around lose the entire situation. Ball needs a training in manners and perhaps his fall from grace will be the life lesson he so desperately needs.
