Famous movie star Robert De Niro, a well-known outspoken critic of US President Donald Trump, has apparently managed to stir up things on social media once again after he shared his thoughts about attorney general William Barr's four-page summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's report with the Hollywood Reporter.
During the interview, De Niro explained that Mueller represents "justice" to him and to "many of us", adding that the special counsel has been "muted by Barr and what’s going on and by Republicans".
"I don’t know what’s happened in this country with the Republicans. I mean the Republicans with Nixon didn’t do this, but these Republicans are. And we’re not going to forget about them", he lamented. "Because when, later on in years to come, long after Trump is gone, there are going to be writers, as soon as any of these characters come out, emerge in some way, they’re going to remind us of all the things that these Republicans did during the time of Trump."
De Niro’s assessment of the situation elicited a somewhat mixed reaction online, as many social media users seemed inclined to agree with him.

It will take the United States 50 years to overcome Trumpism on the world stage and how will any country EVER trust us in entering into any unilateral agreements?— Sandy Kallick (@KallickSandy) 14 апреля 2019 г.

Others, however, appeared less than thrilled by De Niro’s remarks.
Well Mr. DeNiro, we’re not gonna forget what ya’ll did under Obama.— Aubrey Bear (@NotReallyABear2) 15 апреля 2019 г.
Stalemate. Now go make a movie or something entertaining before you become completely obsolete. People are forgetting who you are.

Some even poked fun at the 75-year-old actor’s age, claiming that it affected his judgement.
De Niro is truly one of the greatest actors in our history. He has played some mean SOBs. Sounds like Dementia is taking hold. He is confusing real life with his movie parts. I have a message for him. STICK TO MAKING MOVIES ONCE THE DEMENTIA TAKES HOLD YOUR DONE— Tex Baylor (@TexBaylor) 15 апреля 2019 г.
