Robert De Niro: Trump thinks he’s a gangster | The Graham Norton Show – BBC

Isn’t Goodfellas
where they had the real kind of gangsters on set? Well, there were people
around who, you know… Stole cameras. You know, the same
with Casino and stuff. You know, that’s part of it. Does that help or does
it make you a bit nervous? No, no, everybody… People like to be in
movies and part of them. The guys in that world, as much if
not more than most people. Yeah. And you talk about that world, what is it about movies
and that world? Cos almost since they
started making movies, they’ve been telling stories about
gangsters and the mafia and mobsters and now here we are in 2019
and this is still a big deal. What is the appeal
of those characters? I don’t know, I guess
it’s because they defy the law in some way and they have their
own laws, their own… There is more of an honour, like,
especially in The Godfather. I think especially at that
time in the late ’60s, The Godfather, with
the government and everything, the Vietnam War, I think that the
idea that this culture had more, there was more respect
and more structure and more right and wrong than
we were seeing in the war and with our leaders and not being told the truth
about what was really going on. And I think… So, that’s why,
that’s part of its appeal. Yeah. Today, we have a kind of weird
twisted…president, who… ..thinks he’s a gangster,
who is not even a good gangster… Because this is a guy that,
you know, even gangsters, like honour among thieves,
you shake your hand, you have your word. That’s all you
have… Yeah. your word, and they have your
word and that’s it. This guy… not the case. I didn’t even bring him up,
ladies and gentlemen. APPLAUSE

  1. Celebrities are just a waste of time these days. They've had their day. They are not above anyone but They think they are.

  2. Trump's a gangster wanna be he tries and says B.S. threats and can never go threw with any thing the only PEOPLE he can go after are children ,they are at the same intelligence levelas him

  3. There are over 7 billion people in the world but to the media there are only a few hundred they care to listen to. The rest of us are just poll numbers. De Niro speaks for De Niro, no one else.

  4. "…because [the gangsters] had honor and more structure [read authoritarianism] and talked about right and wrong more [failure to cope with complexity] than the world outside of that culture…"

  5. Why would anyone even listen to these degenerate Hollywood globalists? They are all getting payed by communist China and are afraid to support real freedom fighters like Hongkongers… bunch of Virtue signaling narcicists who don't do what they preach. Disgusting…

  6. Homosexuality is from the Major Major Sins. Only Saying as the Lord of the Seven Heavens and Earth and all in Between says…smiles

  7. I wonder how much he's being paid to diss The president on the Graham Norton show by the democrats ..Because normally he says nothing …Yeah right Hillary and Obama wouldn't know the truth if it bit them on the arse … They'd know all about selling off The USA to China and Europe including Ukraine in pay for play…

  8. God De Niro is one to talk he pretended to be one for years now he thinks he is one, he is such a tool, people cant stand Hollywood they ruin entertainment can we just enjoy things.

  9. I got a headache listening to DeNiro's incoherent rambling when he tries to explain how wonderful gangsters are. What an idiot douchebag.

  10. If di Niro actually had a brain , he could see that Trump is the BEST PRESIDENT we have had in decades !!!!!!
    But instead, we have a Hollywood idiot who thinks what he has to say is relevant. Alas, it is not!!!
    He needs to just stay in his make believe world and leave the real thinking to those who have a concept of intelligence.

  11. Deniro has been in some of the best movies of all time. I mean The Godfather 2, Taxi Driver, Heat, Goodfellas, Casino and on and on. Sure he has mostly made stinkers over the last couple of decades but at least he has redeemed himself with The Irishman and the Joker movie. A Great talent!

  12. So its a big fat joke how cutsey and endearingly & warmly funny and fair are the muderous crimnal gangs? All rubbing elbows to make movies? What on earth is wrong with you! But you label a duly elected POTUS as worse than than any sex and drug TRAFICKING gang. WITHOUT providing any facts whatsoever. Why is that? This itty bitty video is another samey example the famous, well paid over the top WEALTHY individuals speaking out of both sides of their two faces. Provide evidence. Keep your communication clean.

  13. Anyone else really bored of this we hate trump rhetoric?? I don't hear them challenging China on their treatment of dogs or Saudi arabia on their treatment of women …. stick to acting left wing luvvies

  14. Because wealthy celebrities who live in gated communities and are buddies with Harvey Weinstein know what's best for the average person.

  15. Used to love de Niro . Lost all respect for him and his ilk now ! They are to be spat at imo from now on ! Horrible lefty rat.

  16. also starring in the turkey that was Dirty grandpa shows even legends like Deniro or streep will do some things just for money .

  17. He might also have an opinion on who is a good and bad chess player, but that opinion doesn't really matter too much, as he is an actor…not a grandmaster or chess analyst. His opinion is not more important any anyone elses. Probably less important, as he is nothing in common with the an average American.

  18. Trump is an easy target , because he’s white ,you can insult him and make up rubbish about him
    The last president did sweet fa for America , criticise him and you’re labelled a racist

  19. Oh here we go : “I hate Trump.” – yes, De Niro we get it.

    Notice how Graham laps this stuff up, like he has done with other guests.

    De Niro was once a great actor. However, he is mentally unstable – remember his Barry Norman interview.

  20. Let us see with Graham Norton and the “celebrities who hate Trump crowd” :

    Keira Knightley commenting on her daughter being worried about it – check.

    Emma Thompson claiming that Trump might have asked her out one time and allowed her to use his private jet – check.

    Now Robert De Niro – doing his infamous I hate Trump act – check.

    Hey, Graham – tell us what you think about Brexit?

  21. Listening to De Niro he is politically a well informed guy. You appreciate that after watching a film like The Good Shepherd.

  22. Robert de Niro and I could have along and nice chat over some great Italian cuisine, but I guess that would never happen. Still I like how he drove this interview into something unexpected, and something I liked a lot!

  23. he admires vulgar killers, but bad mouths trump who has done nothing evil, deniro makes me vomit in my mouth, liberalism is repulsive.. how dare these animals dictate to us

  24. No Bobby. You're actually the one who thinks he's a gangster. Old bitter Bobby doesn't have too much time left on this earth though and that's a good thing.


  26. Like or loathe trump, he will never be forgotten, along with george Washington and abe lincoln, those are the three presidents school kids will be able to name in a hundred years time.

  27. I have so much respect for Deniro and Alpacino. They are tremendous actors and humans and I wish i could meet them one day… That's my dream

  28. Sorry deniro I won’t be watching any movies your in again, why can’t entertainers just keep their mouths shut?!

  29. Bob is disgusted by America's president.. instead of the great percentage of Americans who actually voted for him, and made him such. Oh, George Carlin, where are you when we need you the most?!

  30. Just filling the leftist agenda with the hate towards Trump smh. Wouldn't expect nothing less from an actor out of Hollyweird.

  31. What is wrong with this man.. he is obsessed with trump i think maybe he really loves him ❤️❤️🇬🇧🇬🇧🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  32. So De Niro says he hangs with criminal thugs ? And is an opponent to Trump ? I think De Niro should be locked up.

  33. This show used to be good many years ago. Now it's all just pretentious and uptight actors who are afraid to be themselves on tv. Really boring.
