He’s Talking To You!: Robert De Niro Backs Pete Buttigieg for President

Academy Award-winning actor and vocal Donald Trump critic in an interview with the Daily Beast is supporting Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg as the next US President.

Said DeNiro:

I like Buttigieg.

[…] He’s got all the credentials — Rhodes Scholar, Afghanistan veteran — even though he’s young, and if he could get a chance it could be something special, I think.

As a gay person, he’s someone who comes from a marginalized community, so people from other ethnic groups can identify with him, even if they’re not gay, because they know what it’s like.

I think he’s the best for what we need now. I have friends who really like him a lot, as I do.

De Niro dismissed both Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as being “too extreme.”

  1. I am so proud of Bobby!!! He said it all in a nutshell. My choice since I can’t remember, after ll the Town Hall Meetings on Cnn, and other stations. Not because he is gay. But he does offer more than the rest and is one bright young man. I am proud of Him Too!!! Go Pete, Go!!!!
