London [UK], Oct. 9 : In a most recent video, Hollywood icons Robert De Niro lashed out at American presidential candidate Donald Trump by calling him a "blatantly stupid" 'punk' 'dog' and a 'pig', asserting that he would like nothing better than punching the flamboyant businessman in his face.
In a Vice Exclusives video, the 73-year-old actor did not hold back his scathing assessment of the Republican presidential nominee by saying that Trump is "so blatantly stupid.
He's a punk, a dog, he's a pig," reports the Telegraph. "Colin Powell [former secretary of state] said it best: he's a national disaster. He's an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry this country has gotten to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has," the 'Taxi Driver' star fumed.
The video was reportedly recorded as part of a campaign to encourage the American people to get out and vote with the Oscar winner, who is seen energetically mouthing, "He talks how he'd like to punch people in the face?..Well, I'd like to punch him in the face." "What I care about is the direction of this country and what I'm very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump.
If you care about your future, vote for it," de Niro concluded. The 70-year-old businessman and politician, however, does have some celebrity supporters in Mike Tyson, Jean Claude Van Damme and Azealia Banks among others.
The billionaire recently made new headlines after a video emerged of him making sexually aggressive comments about women for which he later made a rare apology.
Following the incident, Trump's wife, Melania Trump had also addressed the people asking them to accept his apology like she has.
