Robert De Niro Calls Donald Trump “Totally Nuts,” Equates Him To Insane Character In Taxi Driver

At this weekend’s opening of the Sarajevo Film Festival, Robert De Niro had some words about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, comparing him to Travis Bickle, the mentally ill character he played in Taxi Driver reports the Associated Press:

“What he has been saying is totally crazy, ridiculous, stuff that shouldn’t be even … he is totally nuts,” De Niro said during a question and answer session at the Sarajevo Film Festival.”

In the 1976 film directed by Martin Scorsese, Bickle is a Vietnam veteran who suffers from bouts of depression and insomnia, leading him to drive a NYC taxi cab. As the story progresses, the protagonist has increasingly violent fantasies and  eventually attempts to assassinate a senator.

“I don’t know, it’s crazy that people like Donald Trump. He shouldn’t even be where he is, so God help us,” said De Niro to “wide applause” according to Reuters.
