Robert De Niro's Harsh Words for the Current Administration, Plus: He Talks New Movie

Robert De Niro is starring in the new comedy “The War with Grandpa,” but before dishing on the film, he spoke with “Extra’s” Terri Seymour about the state of our country during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview conducted last month, he said, “We are in a national abusive situation with a leader who is daily giving us something new to be concerned about… That’s another kind of virus or pandemic that we are having to deal with. ‘I can’t wait, can’t wait, please God, that it goes away so we can get back to normal, get us all back to normal.’”

He added, “Even this virus situation could have been a lot less severe… I get upset even talking about it… This nation has been toyed with, played with, conned to be where we are today. When are people going to wake up and see what the fraud is right in front of our very eyes?”
