De Niro’s remarks came in a video produced by Anonymous Content, which has been making a series of short interviews for a voter initiative called #Vote YourFuture. The director of De Niro’s video, Tom McCarthy, asked him, “What do you care about?”
De Niro’s anti-Trump remarks were so emphatic that the producers concluded that it could not be part of the campaign, which is non-partisan. But it was given to Kelly’s show for airing and publicists for the production firm released it to the media on Friday.
In the video, De Niro also calls Trump “blatantly stupid,” “a punk” and a “bulls–t artist.”
