Trump Fires Back at ‘Small’ Robert De Niro After Disastrous Biden Campaign Event

Robert De Niro appeared outside the Manhattan courtroom where former President Donald Trump is being tried for 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, and it’s no surprise that Trump had something to say about it.

Trump railed against the actor’s campaign appearance on behalf of President Joe Biden — an appearance that perhaps didn’t go the way the Biden campaign had hoped it would.

“I never knew how small, both mentally and physically, Wacko Former Actor Robert De Niro was,” Trump wrote early Wednesday morning on Truth Social.

“Today, De Niro, who suffers from an incurable case of TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME, commonly known in the medical community as TDS, was met, outside the Courthouse, with a force far greater than the Radical Left – MAGA. Robert, whose movies, artistry, and brand have gone WAY DOWN IN VALUE since he entered the political arena at the request of Crooked Joe Biden, looked so pathetic and sad out there,” he added (emphasis original).

“Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio!!!” he concluded, a reference to the Simon & Garfunkel song that asked what has happened to our old heroes.

Trump wasn’t the only one to call out the Biden campaign on social media for its publicity stunt in front of the courthouse, which appeared to belie the president’s numerous claims of neutrality regarding Trump’s prosecutions.

Washington Times columnist Tim Murtaugh shared a video in which a car horn drowned out De Niro’s remarks.

Will Trump win in November?

“Nothing says ‘this isn’t political’ like the Biden campaign sending one of the most political movie stars in Hollywood to hold an embarrassing press conference outside the Trump trial,” he wrote. “The beeping horn car alarm is just the cherry on top.”

WARNING: The following videos contain vulgar language that some viewers may find offensive.

Further undermining Biden’s neutrality claims, the campaign chose as its “special guests” not only De Niro, known for his vulgar tirades against the former president, but also two Capitol police officers, Michael Fanone and Harry Dunn, who helped spread the “insurrection” narrative about the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion.

“Everything about what the Biden campaign did this morning was absolutely hilarious,” conservative commentator Greg Price wrote in a post to X. “They spent the whole thing getting drowned out by Trump supporters yelling ‘FJB’ and they had to answer questions such as ‘is Trump a threat to all these wars Biden has gotten us in.’”

CBS News correspondent Matt Pieper posted a video of the actor and Trump supporters hurling insults at one another.

Fox News called the De Niro news conference “chaotic,” while the New York Post labeled it “bizarre.”

It was Trump, however, who appeared to have the last word on Truth Social — and unless De Niro has plans to jump back into the X (then Twitter) account he created in 2014 and posted to exactly once, it looks like it’s going to stay that way.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
