Robert De Niro: I can't punch Donald Trump in the face now

Over the course of the 2016 election, many celebrities came out in favor of Hillary Clinton. Robert De Niro was unique, however, in that he said he’d like to punch Donald Trump in the face. Now, of course, that possibility seems much more far-fetched in the wake of Trump’s victory, as Jimmy Kimmel pointed out to De Niro on Wednesday night.

“I can’t do that now — he’s the president,” De Niro said. “And I have to respect that position, even though we all know what he, anyway. We have to see what he’s gonna do, and how he’s really gonna follow through on certain things. As we even see now, in a lot of cities, a lot of people are getting very upset and protesting.”
