Robert De Niro wants everyone to know how much he hates Donald Trump.

Americans are so over it.

And Robert De Niro melted down over Donald Trump, and you’ll never see him the same again.

Robert De Niro earned his status as a Hollywood icon through his starring roles in classic films like “The Godfather Part 2,” “Taxi Driver,” “Raging Bull,” and “Goodfellas.”

De Niro is also a well-known sufferer of an acute case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

And De Niro’s Hollywood career and Trump hatred came into conflict when De Niro was presenting an award to the Martin Scorsese film “Killers of the Flower Moon” which De Niro starred in along with Leonardo DiCaprio.

During his speech where he presented the Gotham Historical Icon and Creator Tribute award at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, De Niro noticed on the teleprompter that the ceremony organizers edited out a political rant from his speech.

De Niro notified the crowd about what happened and took his phone out of his pocket to read off his anti-Trump screed.

“I just want to say one thing. The beginning of my speech was edited, cut out, I didn’t know about it. And I want to read it,” De Niro declared.

De Niro’s first target was a law in Florida that took all the woke ideology about critical race and queer theory out of the Advanced Placement Black History course and instead taught actual black history in America.

“History isn’t history anymore,” De Niro exclaimed. “Truth is not truth. Even facts are being replaced by alternative facts and driven by conspiracy theories and ugliness.”

De Niro then zeroed in on Trump with a tired rant about how Trump is a liar, divisive and mean.

“Lying has become just another tool in the charlatan’s arsenal,” De Niro added. “The former president lied to us more than 30,000 times during his four years in office, and he’s keeping up the pace in his current campaign of retribution,” De Niro continued. “But with all his lies, he can’t hide his soul.”

As “evidence,” De Niro – who claimed he valued honesty in a political leader – complained that Trump mocked Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren for lying about being a Native American by tagging her with the Pocahontas nickname.

“He attacks the weak, destroys the gifts of nature, and shows disrespect, for example, by using Pocahontas as a slur,” De Niro declared.

De Niro wrapped up his speech by saying he would have liked to thank Apple for producing the film and Gotham for staging the ceremony, but because they didn’t want to turn the event into a political rally De Niro left the stage in a huff.

“So I’m going to say these things, but to Apple and thank them and all that, Gotham, blah blah blah, Apple, but, who — I don’t feel like thanking them at all, for what they did. How dare they do that, actually,” De Niro whined.
