Hollywood actor Robert De Niro’s recent insult of Trump is not his first. There is actually a famous video of Robert De Niro’s speech after Donald Trump became an American political reality and not a clowning puppet for the leftist American media. De Niro’s attitude is unprecedented in its use of despicable language.

While US President Donald Trump has achieved unprecedented breakthrough in US foreign policy and in opening a gap in the fort called North Korea, the hot-tempered American actor made slanderous remarks and insulted him at the opening of a restaurant in Canada.

The Hollywood actor belongs to a globalist-American-western movement that has decided to master burning Trump’s image and Trumpism in all ways possible even if it entails the use of profane language, like we witnessed in De Niro’s round of insults in Canada and which the audience warmly applauded.

Even the Canadian media outlets desisted from covering De Niro’s sentence which included the word of abuse.

There is a bloc that includes the left and other parties including the “neo-Brotherhood,” “neo-Khomeinist” and global feminist groups that oppose Trump, right-wing and political groups and that of course oppose the interests of Saudi Arabia and Gulf countries or most of them.

In fact, Trump’s successful steps and policies upset this bloc.

Trump’s response

After returning from Singapore where he held a summit with the North Korean leader, Trump responded to De Niro’s insults and described the latter as being “a very low IQ individual.”

Trump attributed De Niro’s low level of intelligence to receiving too many hits to the head by real boxers in various movies.

“I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch-drunk.’ I guess he doesn’t realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high,” Trump said.

Then, addressing De Niro in a tweet, Trump said: “Wake up Punchy!”

Apart from Trump’s harsh comment against De Niro’s insult, the question is: For how long will the leftist media or the liberal media stay in this state of denial against Trump and his measures?

I also ask this question from those who feed off this media in our Arab world.
