And if you don’t, then we’re going to be where we are today.”

Toward the end of his segment, De Niro pulled no punches in coming after those who still voted to give Trump a second term in office after the host asked him about his many roles as a tough guy and how that attitude may have impacted Americans.

  2. I’m sure he was thinking of Al Capone’s dignity when, while portraying him, he was bashing in the head of a colleague with a baseball bat.
