Actor Robert De Niro used a recent high school awards ceremony to warn students that President Donald Trump is “spreading bullshit.”
“The one characteristic that comes through all of your work that I read, and that is the same quality of everything that Jimmy Breslin wrote, is the truth,” De Niro said this week during an awards ceremony for student recipients of the Rosemary Breslin ‘American Writer Award’ in New York.
“Our country is led by a president who believes he can make up his own truth. And we have a word for that — bullshit,” he continued. “So what about the truth? What does the truth even mean today? I mean, if you’re Donald Trump it doesn’t mean anything.”
According to Page Six, De Niro’s comments were received with a loud round of applause.
