Robert De Niro Issues Total Trump Ban From All Nobu Restaurants

President Donald Trump is no longer welcome to Nobu, the upscale restaurant chain co-founded by actor Robert De Niro - who called Trump "Jerkoff-In-Chief" and a "fuc*ing fool" in a profanity-laced awards show tirade in January. 

De Niro told the Daily Mail that he would "never let Trump into any of the Nobu restaurants," adding "I don't care what he likes. If he walked into a restaurant I was in - I'd walk out." 

Nobu, a swanky Japanese-Peruvian fusion chain, was co-founded by De Niro and chef Nobu Matsuhisa in 1993 and now boasts over 30 restaurants and hotels around the world.

Matsuhisa took a far more peaceful approach - telling the Mail "It's my dream for Trump to sit next to Bob. To make them sushi!" 

De Niro probably won't accept...

"He's a punk, he's a dog, he's a pig, he's a con, a bulls--- artist, a mutt who doesn't know what he's talking about, doesn't do his homework, doesn't care, thinks he's gaming society, doesn't pay his taxes," De Niro said of Trump in 2016. (h/t Business Insider)

De Niro, who doesn't seem to have a military record, also criticized Trump for his lack of service - having been granted five draft deferments; four for college and one for bone spurs in his heel: 

De Niro said of Trump: 'It was fascinating to watch The Post. That story took place nearly 50 years ago, but there are many parallels with today obviously.

'At the time of the story Donald Trump was suffering with "bone spurs". Today the world is suffering from the real Donald Trump.

'This f***ing idiot is the President. It's The Emperor's New Clothes - the guy is a f***ing fool. -Daily Mail

De Niro went on, "Our government today, with the propping [up] of our baby-in-chief - the jerkoff-in-chief I call him - has put the press under siege, trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies." 

So no, Chef Matsuhisa's dream for De Niro and Trump to eat sushi next to each other is probably a longshot.

We are now a fascist ruled nation. Trump is a hard core fascist, racist, authoritarian dictator and republicans have become Trump cultists who will do anything to further enable Trumps assault on democracy and his blatant play to become a ruler rather than a president. Trump has been a despot his whole life. He values nothing and no one lest they serve his own needs. He is a classic sociopath and narcissist of extreme proportions. He lacks any semblance of a moral or ethical compass and he makes that clear to the world each and every day. His all out fascist tactics of attacking the anti Trump media, his disastrous policies which by now endanger not just the US but world peace, his blatant and boundless corruption and greed....all these things point to a man who, like Nero, will set the proverbial city ablaze and laugh as it burns....only to blame someone else for his evil deed. This man, given the chance, would walk lockstep with Hitler and Mussolini and play golf with Saddam. He is an evil, rotten, insane man who will stop at nothing to suppress any and all opposition. Trump is the great evil that has been foretold that will topple the US as a world power and usher in an era of darkness the likes of which this country hasn’t seen this side of Jim Crow. America has sentenced itself to death the day this demagogue was, illegitimately, “elected”. Every American that has voted for this slumping piece of odious excrement has thus committed an act of murder. Murder of a nation. Murder of a flawed ideal but an ideal nonetheless. Murder of a broken democracy but a democracy nonetheless.

Like everything was just hunkey dorey before Trump. 

You do realize Cassandra that the Zh crew is the woke crowd.  We won't fall for stupid Deep State / CIA weak tropes like you just tried to pawn off on us.

First things first: Go study the definition of the word "fascist" because it really does not appear you know.  If you did you would have been speaking up long long LONG ago.  Trump at his worst would not be anything out of the ordinary to you.

I've seen a lot of stupid asses in my day but you must be the biggest one. 

I am not going to say I support the guy or not, but from what I have seen from Trump is a guy whose positions are to support existing law. On immigration he wants immigrants to come to America legally under existing law passed ages ago by democrats and Republicans. On freedom of speech, he supports the First Amendment that says you are allowed to say anything you want as long as it does not threaten the physical safety of anyone. People defending the historical value of Confederate statues have that same First Amendment right as anyone else. On trade, he wants to protect American jobs, which is the same position as politicians in America have held since the country's birth. On climate, he says what most people say, prove the theory in fact or go away. On international relations, he says make treaties and alliances only if it benefits America's national interests. That happens to be called the Carter Doctrine after the democrat President who first enunciated it.

So all of your accusations are lies, and you are completely uninformed. Maybe you should stick your head back up your butt so you will stop talking out of both.

Just because you despise Jews is not a reason to judge Trump's policies. May I remind you that Israel is one of the only democracies in the Middle East, with only Iraq coming close to that (if you want to call Iraq a democracy). The US is supposed to be a defender of democracy around the world, regardless if the country is Jewish, Muslim, Christian or anything else. Trump is only carrying on the policies that every President since Truman have maintained with respect to Israel.

Love reading exploding brain dead heads like yours. It gives me such pleasure as you choke on your own meaningless commentary. So you learnt to spell fascism. Good for you, because it seems that - just like all the other true believers, you know very little else. It is like the dying MSM. No one cares what you think baby, but you're just waking up to that fact now. Orange just keeps on winning while you and your ilk slowly die from rot.

Not sure why 'fascist' was taken up by liberals as an insult.

Mussolini was a socialist who believed a nation state that fused corporate and government interests was the ideal.  He coined the word 'Facsist' to distinguish his party from the Communists who sought to eliminate all private property and any kind of nationalism.  Their ideal is a one-world government that owns everything and centrally plans eveyone's lives. 

Hitler's 'Nazi' party was short for "National Socialist" party, which means Hitler was also a socialist, like Mussolini.

But in Hitler we have the reason to abhor the communist ideal.  Any world government would inevitably come to be ruled by a psychopath like Hitler, which would be the nadir of human existence.

The real fascists are the liberals.  Anti-Fa is channeling Mussolini's tactics.

BTW: I went to NYC Nobu a couple times.  Too expensive, too elitist and fussy and not really very good.  Never went back.

Regardless of his opinion about the Donald, I can't respect De Niro since he caved to the Big Pharma goons and pulled Vaxxed from his Tribeca Film Festival at the last minute.  No guts - no glory.  And this despite the fact that he has an autistic kid.  Raging Bull he is not.  More like the Cowardly Lion.
