As Donald Trump's former policy chief and other former supporters jumped ship on Old Orange Hair following the presidential nominee's disgusting comments about his entitlement to grope women (released this week by Washington Post), Robert De Niro released a seething video expressing what so many of us feel.

In the 55-second dramatic declaration fitting of an actor of his caliber, De Niro calls Trump out as a bullshit artist, a punk and an embarrassment to this country. He begins by citing the obvious: "I mean, he's so blatantly stupid."
