Another line crossed

To the editor:

I was not shocked to hear that Robert De Niro used the "F" word to belittle President Trump. After all, De Niro is an actor and actors use their stage as a platform to advance any cause they see fit. I believe that De Niro crossed the line and set his cause back 50 years with his hateful portrayal of President Trump.

I have been around long enough to know that presidential races divide our country but once the race is over we were always able to come together in a way that set our country apart from any other. Today it is different. It's no longer about winning or losing, it's about disdain for any conservative who might come out the victor. Trump was the person who America chose to be our leader for at least four years so get used to it and stop "acting" like a little child having a tantrum.

Who is he anyway, who does De Niro think he is? He is nothing more than an actor who gets paid for playing the part of many famous people. De Niro lives in a make belief world of putting himself in another place at another time. Reality becomes a fantasy that make one believe that he knows everything better than everyone else around him. In De Niro's case, he has made himself a leader of followers who stand and cheer for derogatory comments directed at our president but they will line up 10 deep to portray him in any future movie. He and his followers lean so far left they are almost falling over with hate. De Niro fell flat on his face the other night when he used the "F" word to show his hatred for our president. I for one never thought of using that kind of language to criticize president Obama when he was in Office. If I had, my beloved mother would have returned from the grave to wash my mouth out with soap and water.

I used to admire De Niro as an actor but his acting has taken over his brain, he stooped lower than the players in the NFL who take a knee during the singing of our National Anthem. We can expect conduct like this from people who are followers but De Niro was supposed to be a leader. True leaders show respect for other leaders, even in heated situations that mean life and death on both sides, the word RESPECT stands out above all others. De Niro is a sick person who is full of hate for a man who is doing everything possible to elevate our country in the eyes of the world. Trump wants nothing more than to level the playing field for Americans to compete in this very complex world as he also keeps our country safe. De Niro is nothing more than an opportunist who fails to understand that conservatives as well as Democrats raised him up to the heights he enjoys today. He is blinded by his hatred for Donald Trump who just happens to be the President of our great country.

I will remind De Niro that Donald Trump will make him eat his words as he will fulfill his promise to make our country great again!
