Robert De Niro coments at Gotham Awards

"History isn’t history anymore. Truth is not truth, and even facts are being replaced by alternative facts and driven by conspiracy theories and ugliness. In Florida, young students are taught that slaves developed skills which could be applied for their personal benefit (referring to the controversial African American studies curriculum standards approved by Florida’s State Board of Education.

Lying has become just another tool in the charlatan’s arsenal. 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.

With all of his lies, he can’t hide his soul. He attacks the weak, destroys the gifts of nature, and shows his disrespect for example using Pocahontas as a slur." (referring to Trump’s frequent nickname for Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren) - Vanity Fair

Slashed words

Shortly after beginning his speech at the Gotham Awards in New York City, Robert De Niro appeared flustered by the teleprompter—or rather, what was missing from it... De Niro’s decision to draw attention to his slashed words was met with applause and cheers at Cipriani Wall Street in downtown Manhattan. A person near one table in the venue could be overheard saying, “I’m surprised someone would do that to him.” - Vanity Fair

According to The Washington Post’s Fact Checker team, Trump told more than 30,500 untruths during his presidency — averaging about 21 erroneous claims a day...During Trump’s presidency, De Niro referred to him as the “baby in chief,” and amid the coronavirus pandemic, in 2020, De Niro branded Trump a “lunatic” who “doesn’t care how many people die” from the virus. - Washington Post
