Trump and De Niro’s free-for-all over Obama birth issue criticism

Robert De Niro Washington, Apr 26 (ANI): American business tycoon Donald Trump said at Oscar-winner Robert De Niro is “not the brightest bulb on the planet,” and therefore, should not comment on the birther issue, especially when it comes to President Obama.

“I like his acting, but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we’re not dealing with Albert Einstein. He can say what he wants but the fact is that this guy [President Barack Obama] has not revealed his birth certificate, a lot of people agree with me,” The New York Post quoted Trump, as saying.

During an interview over the weekend, De Niro had indirectly asked Trump to get facts first before making allegations.

“I won’t mention names, but certain people in the news in the last couple weeks, just what are they doing? It’s crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up. Go get the facts before you start saying things about people,” he said.

However, he confirmed talking about Trump during the interview, saying: “It’s like a big hustle. It’s like being a car salesman. Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up. How dare you? That’s awful to do. To just go out and speak and say these terrible things? Unless you just wanna get over and get the job. It’s crazy.”

Trump had earlier demanded a copy of Obama’s birth certificate after his own birth certificate was declared a fake by the New York’s Department of Health. (ANI)
