Robert De Niro Continues Attacks on ‘Dumbbell’ POTUS, Reveals He’d like to Handcuff the ‘Total Loser’

Days prior to the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which concluded that there was no connection between the Trump campaign and the Russian government’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, actor Robert De Niro, who portrays Mueller on “Saturday Night Live,” revealed that he’d like to act out Trump being handcuffed on the show.

Appearing on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which was recorded on Tuesday and aired on Friday, De Niro discussed the then-coming final report with host Stephen Colbert, in which De Niro noted it’s his “civic duty” to portray Mueller on “SNL.”

The actor, who has been a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, said at the time that he hoped the report “goes further” but was unsure what would happen.

“I keep saying that I don’t know whether this is actually possible in reality, but where I can handcuff him and take him away in an orange jumpsuit,” De Niro told Colbert.

Colbert asked the actor about giving Trump a chance.

“You’re right, that’s what I said right after he was elected. ‘Give him a chance.’ I give everyone the benefit of the doubt,” De Niro said. “This guy has proven himself to be a total loser.”

Later in the show, the discussion of De Niro’s new film, “The Irishman,” which is a gangster-genre film, turned back into bashing Trump.

“It’s just that people like the outlaw-type thing except we have a wannabe gangster in the White House now,” De Niro said in response to people favoring gangster-genre movies.

He added:

“He’s a dumbbell. […] Even gangsters have morals, and they have ethics, they have a code. And, you know, when you give someone your word, it’s your word because that’s all you have is your word — especially in that world. This guy, he doesn’t even know what that means.”

The special counsel’s final report did not conclude any collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian government. The investigators “did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” according to the report, as IJR Red previously noted.

Additionally, Attorney General William Barr defended the president against any obstruction when he told reporters during Thursday’s press conference before the report’s release that there would be no obstruction of justice charges against Trump.

While the 22-month investigation has lingered over Trump’s presidency, he hasn’t let that affect several achievements Americans have noticed under his administration — including historically low unemployment, a handful of people released from prison by criminal justice reform, record-low unemployment rates for Hispanic and black Americans, and the revitalization of manufacturing jobs.


  1. Typical Trump hater. Has no specific reasons for or facts to base their vitriol on, just trying to become relevant with diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the “brain”.

    1. Just typical trolling. Apparently it is big with septuagenarians.

      1. “Just typical trolling.” Coming from the biggest troll here. Thanks for the belly laugh.

        1. You really don’t see De Niro as “poking the bear”? Pretty clear. I have never suggested handcuffs for Trump. –I have debated as the more likely possibility of a straight jacket. After reading the SDNY indictment and Mueller report, the possibility of charges AFTER he leaves the WH are a possibility. But you are welcome for the belly laugh.

  2. The only reason De Dumbo has any voice, is because liberal terrorists like Colbert are giving him a vocal outlet. Both of them are stupidiots!

    1. On what exactly are you basing your assertion that Colbert is a terrorist? What definition of “terrorist” are you working because there are no reports of unlawful violence. I do believe you are correct that he is a liberal, or at least he has given us plenty of reason to believe so. De Niro does appear to get perverse pleasure in trolling Trump.

      1. Interesting. 3 people believe Colbert is a terrorist, but no clue as to what their definition of terrorist is.
