Robert De Niro has recently expressed his thoughts on the current state of affairs in American politics. The 74-year-old American actor states that Donald Trump lacks any sense of humanity or compassion; president’s ignorance towards the country’s education is vivid, and he can’t be silent any more.
Anti-Trump celebrity world
The line between politics and showbiz in nowadays world is too thin. Celebrities are brave enough to express their dissatisfaction with what is going on in the country under Trump’s ruling.
Jimmy Kimmel, Meryl Steep, Cher, Alec Baldwin, Chrissy Teigen, George Clooney, and tens of others have discussed Donald’s inability to lead the country properly. Perhaps, none of the former American presidents has gained such infamous popularity. And it never seems to stop.
On March 13, the event for the Fulfillment Fund, an L.A.-based organization promoting higher education, featured a well-known advocate for studying promotion Robert De Niro. He claims that the amount of attention that is now paid to American education is shameful:
A college education is important, but education without humanity is ignorance.
Robert also calls Trump an idiot for his lack of appropriate attention towards American students and claims he is not ready to stay silent for any longer:
To be silent in the face of such villainy is to be complicit, and it’s especially appropriate tonight because Trump treats education as a con, a way to make a profit at the expense of the suckers.
