Robert De Niro Says Donald Trump Is a 'Scam Artist' Who Is 'Afraid to Defy the NRA'

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are on the cover of Variety‘s New York issue, out now.

Here’s what the Irishman actors had to say…

Robert De Niro, on who killed JFK: “We don’t know. I never felt that the mob had anything to do with the Kennedy assassination, but now, in hindsight, I start thinking maybe there is something more to it.”

Robert De Niro, on Trump’s recent suggestion that Hollywood movies inspire mass shootings: “This is absolute nonsense. It’s bulls–t. This guy is afraid to defy the NRA. He calls Washington a swamp because all he knows is a swamp. He’s a classic hustler and a scam artist. He has no morals. No ethics. If people don’t wake up and he gets reelected, it’s going to be very, very bad. Anybody who feels that way should say it. If you wait to say something, before you know it the dictators and despots come to power.”

Al Pacino on the struggle to get The Irishman made: “I didn’t think it was going to get made. At some point, I sort of thought, ‘Well, that was a good idea, but a lot of those come along and never happen.’”
