Robert DeNiro is a bitter has-been actor who has ruined his legacy with his frequent foul mouthed anti Trump outbursts. The 75-year-old “Goodfellas” star appeared as Robert Mueller on Saturday Night Live this weekend and made a total fool of himself.
It was so bad that he got roasted on Twitter by fans for forgetting his lines and reading straight off of a cue card.
The Federalist Papers notes,
DeNiro appeared as a boogeyman in the closet of Eric Trump, played by Alex Moffatt, as his brother, Donald Trump Jr., played by Mikey Day, read him a bedtime story.
Mueller appeared at Eric’s bedside and talked to him about the Russia investigation.
“Hi Eric, don’t be scared, it’s just me, your dad’s friend from work,” Mueller said.
“I’m not allowed to talk to you,” Eric responded.
“That’s fine Eric, it was pretty clear early on that you didn’t know anything,” Mueller told him.
“Nope,” Eric said.
“I wish I could say the same for some of your dad’s friends,” Mueller replied.
The skit went on until Eric said “Mr. Mueller, people say you’re the worst thing to ever happen to my dad.”
Mueller said “No, Eric, getting elected president is the worst thing that ever happened to your dad.”
Which is true.
President Donald Trump is being punished for winning when the deep state did not want him to.
It was a pathetic performance that looked amateurish. And he got roasted for it.
Well, DeNiro showed how much he sucks. Reads off the cards the whole skit. #snl

Nice, but either DeNiro needs to get stronger contact lenses or SNL need to up the font size on the cue cards!

Robert DeNiro learn your line or at least learn to read the cue cards! #SNL

Deniro is a really good actor, so why can’t he learn a few lines for SNL? Every time he’s on he does a terrible job of reading his cue cards #SNL

The TRUMP SONS are always a hit, but DeNiro reading the cue cards ruined the #SNL Cold Open 😤

I enjoy seeing Robert DeNiro on SNL but I really wish he’d stop relying so heavily on the cue cards. You’re a pro, just memorize your lines.
