Robert De Niro dropped the f-bomb — twice — on CNN as he hit back Sunday at critics who oppose his stance on the Donald Trump presidency.
“F—k ’em. F—k ’em,” the “Raging Bull” Oscar winner responded after ripping Trump and the Fox News pundits aligned with him on the CNN show “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter.
A voice from off-set could be heard yelling “whoaaa,” at De Niro’s double four-letter drop.
“Sorry,” the actor said. “Sorry.”
“This is cable, so it’s not an FCC violation, but it still is a Sunday morning,” CNN T, +0.13% host Stelter commented.
‘In some ways, I think he is.’
During the full interview, which Stelter posted online, De Niro said he believed the president wasn’t capable of resigning from office.
He also described the president as a “gangster” and called Trump “crazy.”
Stelter asked if De Niro meant in the medical sense.

“Possibly medically, too,” De Niro said. “There’s just something very strange.”
Stelter asked the “Taxi Driver” star if he thought Trump might be acting.
“In some ways, I think he is,” De Niro answered. “As I think some of these pundits on Fox are, too,” he volunteered. “Because I can’t believe they would actually buy into this craziness. This guy should not be president, period.”
