Actor Robert De Niro gave President Donald Trump something to tweet about when he tore into him at the press launch of 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, calling him a “mad man.”

“America is being run by a mad man,” the actor said,

The 74-year-old actor and director also has a new name for the former host of ‘The Apprentice’ who now resides in The White House.

“It was jerkoff-in-chief, now it’s lowlife-in-chief,” he said.

As soon as the two-time Oscar winner took to stage, he joked; “Look at all the Fake News writers here today,” addressing a crowd of reporters at the Thalassa Restaurant.

“The country has had a bad year, and you — the press – have taken a lot of hits. America is being run by a madman who wouldn’t recognize the truth if it came inside a bucket of his beloved Colonel Sanders Fried Chicken,” De Niro continued.

“When he doesn’t like what he hears, he dismisses it by saying it’s un-American and damning it as ‘fake news.’ But we know the truth. All thinking people do.”

The actor added with empathy; “Your job is difficult enough without being attacked by our Lowlife-in-Chief. The press has done an admirable job this past year,” he said. “We’re looking at journalists as our saviors, in the same way we used to look at our political leaders.”

De Niro has long expressed his discontent with Donald Trump and two years ago he described him to be “totally nuts.” The Hollywood veteran ramped up his anti-Trump talk a few months later, announcing in a celebrity voter registration PSA that he’d like to punch Trump in the face.

When Trump was elected the president in December 2016, De Niro cited he was “depressed” and said the real estate mogul winning the White House made him “feel like I did after 9/11.”

Recently, De Niro took to Saturday Night Live to lampoon the president. After playing the part of special counsel Robert Mueller last week, the actor said Wednesday that he hopes to revise his role so he can interrogate Trump, “arrest him” and then “take him to jail.”
