Robert De Niro Calls Playing Robert Mueller on ‘SNL’ a ‘Civic Duty’

“We have a wannabe gangster in the White House,” says Oscar winner Stephen Colbert

Robert De Niro is one of the most exuberant anti-Trump celebs out there, so much so that he says that he regards his “Saturday Night Live” performances as Robert Mueller as his “civic duty .”

“I have no other way to say it, I think – it’s a civic duty . It’s my civil duty to play Mueller,” the actor said on Friday’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” to which Colbert responded: “I doubt that Mueller is as good as a Mueller.”

De Niro in fact hopes that “SNL” takes its role one step further. “I don’t know if this is really possible,” he said, “but where I can fascinate him and take him in an orange overall.”

The actor and the president have repeatedly exchanged insults, and last night was no exception, even when Colbert changed the subject from Trump to “The Irishman” – The Niro’s upcoming Netflix film directed by Martin Scorsese about Jimmy Hoffa (played by Al Pacino) and a hired assassin of a crowd. Colbert asked why people are so attracted to gangster movies, and De Niro said, “People love the outlaw type, except that we now have a wannabe gangster in the White House.”

De Niro said that just after Trump was elected, he gave him a chance, but “this guy has proven he is a total loser.”

“Even gangsters have morals and they have ethics,” he said. “They have a code and you know when you give someone your word, it’s your word, because it’s all you have is your word. He doesn’t even know what that means.”
