Robert De Niro goes full Robert De Niro, drops two f-bombs on CNN Sunday morning: Watch

Robert De Niro doesn’t give zero fucks — he gives two.

The Irishman actor flipped the script on the sanctimonious political discourse normally reserved for Sunday morning news shows by dropping not one, but two f-bombs during an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources. De Niro, a staunch opponent of Donald Trump, didn’t hold back when asked about criticism he receives from conservative pundits on FOX News: “Fuck ’em,” he replied. “Fuck ’em.”

Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter reminded De Niro that while he was on cable TV and not subject to an FCC violation, “it’s still Sunday morning.”

But De Niro, recognizing the existential threat facing America, wasn’t about to apologize for his choice of words. “We’re at a moment in our country, where this guy is like a gangster. This guy says things and does things… this is terrible. We’re in a terrible situation. And this guy just keeps going on and on without being stopped.”

And with that, Stelter took a commercial break.
