Legendary actor Robert De Niro hates former President Donald Trump so much, that he’d rather see an incapacitated President Biden in the Oval Office over his nemesis.
De Niro was asked by an interviewer at Rolling Stone if Biden was the “right person” to defeat Trump in the 2024 presidential election.
“I think that if Biden was on a gurney and couldn’t move anything but his eyes to blink ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ he’s our person,” the Taxi Driver star remarked.
“There’s no way that he’s not the guy to take Trump down.”

“God forbid he [Trump] did become president — this is a road where, if we go down it, it will be very hard to turn around,” he continued. “As Liz Cheney said, ‘He will not leave.’”
In a Dec. 4 interview with MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow, Cheney took several digs at Trump while promoting her new book, Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning, including that she has “been a Republican longer than Trump has been spray-tanning.”
“When you have a president who’s willing to go to war with the rule of law, to ignore the rulings of the courts if he doesn’t agree with them, that has the potential to unravel everything,” Cheney charged.
The former Wyoming congresswoman also said that “the country is “sleepwalking in dictatorship,” and insisted that “Trump will not leave office if elected again.”
During the interview, Cheney revealed the “chilling moment” she allegedly overheard a plan Trump hatched with his lawyers to prevent then Vice President Mike Pence form ratifying the 2020 election results.
Cheney claimed that she heard Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis briefing his surrogates over a call about how installing fake electors would cause Pence to refuse to certify the election.

“Listening to them describe how these fake electors were going to be used and the fact that they anticipated that Vice President Pence was gonna use them to refuse to count the legitimate electors was certainly a moment of intense concern,” she stated.
Cheney went directly to the House parliamentarian after hearing to find out how to stop Trump.
“It was very clear that there were not a lot of good answers to that,” she continued.
“The vice president ultimately of course did his duty bravely,” Cheney noted. “It was a very dangerous and chilling moment.”
During De Niro’s interview with Rolling Stone, he insisted that Trump is a “monster” who is “beyond dangerous.”
“Now, if Trump gets elected, the ‘deep state’ and all the things that he says, are things he’s created,” he stated.
“It’s all projection from him. What scares me is that people buy what he’s saying. He’s done a lot of damage.”
De Niro called Trump a “wannabe dictator” during a written statement he made at October’s “Stop Trump Summit.”
“I’ve spent a lot of time studying bad men,” former Trump official Miles Taylor read after De Niro bowed out of the event due to an illness.
“I’ve examined their characteristics, their mannerisms, the utter banality of their cruelty.”
“Yet there’s something different about Donald Trump. When I look at him, I don’t see a bad man. Truly,” De Niro’s speech continued. “I see an evil one.”
He claimed that the gangsters he portrayed throughout his career had a “sense of right an wrong,” but said that Trump has no moral code.
“He’s a wannabe tough guy with no morals or ethics. No sense of right or wrong. No regard for anyone but himself,” the actor added.
“Not the people he was supposed to lead and protect, not the people he does business with, not the people who follow him,” De Niro alleged.
“Blindly and loyally, not even the people who consider themselves his “friends.” He has contempt for all of them.”
