In what will probably be one of CNN’s highest-rated segments of the year, which is not saying much, actor Robert De Niro went on a vulgar tirade attacking President Trump. As can be expected from their poor production value, they did not run the live segment in a delay and the two f-words went out on air Sunday morning. CNN host Brian Stelter was unable to blame his IFB failing this time with an in-studio guest, and quickly pointed out that it was a cable show and it was not an FCC violation.
De Niro went on to say:
“We are in a moment in our lives — in this country where this guy is like a gangster. He’s come along and he’s said things, done things we say over and over again. This is terrible. We’re in a terrible situation. We’re in a terrible situation and this guy just keeps going on and on without being stopped.”
Stelter’s tepid response to these assertions is just another example the President and his supporters will use when referring to them as fake news.
