Donald Trump has a big mouth. And a comb-over… but that’s beside the point. You’re probably well aware of a group of petty jackasses who continuously demand to see the President’s birth certificate, even though there’s one on file for the state of Hawaii, and you might also be aware that said big mouth is one of the most aggressive jackasses out of the bunch. Well, I guess you know it’s bad when celebrities who hardly say anything in normal interviews start to sound off on crap like this. Case in point, Robert De Niro recently sat down with a reporter, and he wasn’t shy about voicing his feelings on a few political topics. He called the speculation, “crazy,” and went on to say:
“I won’t mention names, but certain people in the news the last couple weeks, just, what are they doing? It’s crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up. Go get the facts before you start saying things about people. It’s like a big hustle. It’s like being a car salesman. Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up. How dare you? That’s awful to do. To just go out and speak and say these terrible things? Unless you just want to get over and get the job. It’s crazy.”
And, of course, Trump replied to the alleged statement this morning (on Fox News of course):
“Well, he’s not the brightest bulb in the planet. I have been watching over the years and I like his acting, but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we are not dealing with Albert Einstein.”
I think he meant “brightest bulb in the box.” Actually, “brightest bulb on the porch,” “in the chandelier,” or even “in the tanning bed,” would have worked. That last one is something that he knows a lot about. Nevertheless, that was his reply, which begs the question: Why does Donald Trump reply to everything that is said about him? He fights with everyone, about everything. He claims he’s so busy – too busy to come back from his international business affairs to vote in primaries – but not busy enough for petty arguments? Someone is a cranky, fat baby. Someone needs a time-out.
