‘People MUST Vote’: Robert De Niro Responds After Being Targeted With Mail Bomb

Robert De Niro

Amid the growing number of Democratic politicians who were sent suspicious packages that were believed to be bombs, actor Robert De Niro also received one addressed to the building that houses his production company restaurant.

“I thank God no one’s been hurt, and I thank the brave and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us,” he said in a statement that his representative, Stan Rosenfield, issued. “There’s something more powerful than bombs, and that’s your vote. People MUST vote!”

What De Niro has in common with the other targets of the bombs is that he’s a critic of President Donald Trump. He’s spoken out multiple time against the president, most notably giving a short speech littered with expletives at the Tony Awards earlier this year.

“I’m gonna say one thing: f**k Trump”, De Niro said before introducing Bruce Springsteen. “It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s f**k Trump.” The Tony Awards audience gave De Niro a standing ovation.

Watch the video below:

Trump responded on Twitter, bashing the actor for his intelligence.

“Robert De Niro, a very low IQ individual, has received too many shots to the head by real boxers in movies,” the president tweeted. “I watched him last night and truly believe her may be ‘punch-drunk.’ I guess he doesn’t realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!”

De Niro was on the receiving end of one of 12 total suspicious packages sent out so far. The other packages were addressed to:

  • Liberal billionaire and philanthropist Geroge Soros
  • Bill and Hillary Clinton
  • Former President Barack Obama
  • The CNN office in New York, also addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan
  • Former Attorney General Eric Holder, received at Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office
  • Former Vice President Joe Biden (two packages)
  • Rep. Maxine Waters (two packages)
  • Sen. Corey Booker
  • Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper

Officials still don’t know who is behind the packages.

  1. I don’t like to wish harm on anyone, but it wouldn’t bother me if that ‘raging full of bull’, was struck dumb.

  2. It’s a shame they were all duds. Think of the posthumous glory any one of these would have received as “martyrs” to the cause. There’d be marches on DC demanding postal service control or Home Depot control.

  3. That foul mouthed loon received a standing ovation for cursing out the President of the United States. Pathetic. I wonder what would have happened if a celeb did the same toward Obama and received a standing ovation? I’d say he/she would be blacklisted, destroyed personally and professionally, and the theater the audience was housed would be attacked, and boycotted and most likely closed down or worse, burned down. DeNiro is totally clueless.

    1. it is trump that sucks and he will be gone soon and extremely limited in a couple of weeks. whjat is wrong with you and all the Trump Cult. Oh btw, what flavor of cool aid do you prefer.
