Donald Trump Responds to Robert DeNiro's Criticisms: 'He's Not the Brightest Bulb'
Fox News.com ^ | 4/25/11 | fox News

Posted on 04/25/2011 7:35:44 AM PDT by Dr. Scarpetta

Donald Trump slammed Robert DeNiro Monday, following the Oscar-winner’s criticisms of him this weekend, telling Fox News that the actor is “not the brightest bulb on the planet.”

“I like his acting, but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we’re not dealing with Albert Einstein,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” Monday.

“He can say what he wants but the fact is that this guy has not revealed his birth certificate, a lot of people agree with me.”

DeNiro is among a growing number of Hollywood stars who have criticized Trump for his comments, including comedian Jerry Seinfeld.

I wish Trump would also emphasize the other records that Obama is hiding.

De Niro - that’s the leftist propagandist who played a serial killer evangelical christian, and when he killed his victims, told them “are you ready to speak in tongues”.

Leftist. Propagandist. The Enemy.

I'm not a Trump booster, and I'm not a Trump basher. I like what he's doing on the Birth Certificate issue; but he's pretty low on my list of people I want to see as president.

A disturbing pattern I've been seeing is that when someone speaks out against him, Trump often seems to respond with: "Look, I'm a lot smarter than you."

I consider that to be a poor strategy for just about anyone -- certainly a bad strategy for people in politics.

How right he is. De Niro plays characters with smarts, but when you see him. Interviewed, you realize it was all in the writers’ dialogue. Plus all his girlfriends happen to be black so he is a part of the group who supports Obama for a dumb reason.

so refreshing, someone stating that they like an actor’s movies but that the guy is an idiot. Really makes the point that actors’ have nothing qualifying their opinions on politics as even being necessarily informed.

I agree. It is not presidential, and certainly not diplomatic to directly call someone stupid. A statesman would do it much more delicately. You know, something like saying:

When it comes to knowledge of political affairs, Robert DeNiro is a fine actor.

Not many of the so called stars are the sharpest knife in the drawer..And Dinero is one of them..Give them a piece of paper no matter what it has on it as long as the name Barack Obama or Bill Clinton and they will lay down and roll over for a treat from either one of them..

“. . . other records Obama is hiding.”

THAT’S JUST IT!! In the past, Presidents’ university grade records, medical records, military records, and just about everything else have been public knowledge. Yet, with Obama, we “great unwashed” are told that he’s a TOTALLY HEALTHY GENIUS; and we’re to just believe it and shut up and sit down and we’re “racist” if we don’t.

With no logical basis to shut up and sit down.

"I wish Trump would also emphasize the other records that Obama is hiding."

You gotta know when to hold'em,
know when to fold'em,
Know when to walk away,
and know when to run;

You never count your money,
while sitting at the table,
There'll be time enough for countin',
when the dealings done.

“Bush acted like a Statesman, where did that get him?”

One can be a statesman, and still be wrong. Bush also opened two wars when one would have worked, and spent like a drunken sailor.

Jesse Ventura was direct, bordering on crude, where did that get him?

That’s the flip side of your point, such as it is.

Ideally, a statesman with good policy decisions would be what you wish for in a president. Is that too much to ask for?

Wow I though Trump was going to hold fire on DeNiro. Guess not. DeNiro might be stupid but he has done great and must be worth at least 100 million. If he is stupid then he hired excellent financial advisers.

DeNiro is very rich from real estate, restaurants, and acting. He is always working as an actor.

I agree, Trump could be more diplomatic, but there is also something GREAT about seeing him smackdown these Hollywood lefties ...

Perhaps a few more like this and they’ll learn to shut their mouths.

Two wars were fine. But we morphed into a police force when we should have brought everybody home once we'd acheived victory.

But yes, he spent like a drunken sailor. A "big government" conservative.

Finally, his refusal to protect America from the messycan invasion finished him.

The reason DiNero repeats his lines a lot is because he can’t remember what comes next. It became his “style”, PLUS, when you’re Robert DiNero you can pretty much write your own lines.

Sharon Stone is another one who can’t remember lines. So she just flashes the camera while trying to think of what to say next. They all have their own little tricks. I’m only half kidding.

Hilarious slap-down of another Hollywierd idiot.

Trump is definitely worth having in the early stages of the running to show it is possible to campaign with a spine.

“DeNiro is among a growing number of Hollywood stars who have criticized Trump for his comments, including comedian Jerry Seinfeld.”

Everytime one of these entertainment wh**es attacks Trump, its an endorsement in my book.

But then, AT THIS point, its OBVIOUS the liberal tact will be to DEFLECT the argument from the Obamanation’s policies towards nitpicking WHOEVER the GOP selects as a front-runner.

And the Media and Entertainment Wh**es and the “Educational” establishment will be in the forefront.

Our response should be to defend ANY GOP potential candidate, even though we have favorites.

The important thing is to flush that bastard out of the Oval Office in 2012. Everything else is secondary.
