The Five: De Niro Says Trump Is a White Supremacist, Seth Meyers Calls for No TV Coverage of 'Lies'
The panel on "The Five" reacted to Hollywood's latest attacks on President Trump, including Samuel L. Jackson's endorsement of a profane remark about Trump and accusations of racism from Robert De Niro.
Frequent Trump foil De Niro answered in the affirmative when a Guardian reporter asked if he would characterize the president as a "white supremacist."
"If he had his way, we’d wind up in a very bad state in this country. I mean, the way I understand it, they laughed at Hitler. They all look funny. Hitler looked funny, Mussolini looked funny and other dictators and despots look funny," Trump told the paper.
De Niro said Trump's actions show he is "a real racist" and "as bad as I thought and much worse," adding that he thought that as a New Yorker, Trump would better "understand diversity."
On NBC, "Late Night" host and "SNL" alum Seth Meyers said television networks should not allow Trump to have airtime to "repeat his lies" about illegal immigration.
Jackson recently defended freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who called Trump a "motherf---er."
Jackson is well-known for his tagline from the 2006 film "Snakes on a Plane" where he says he is tired of "these m-----f-----g snakes on this m-----f-----g plane."
Dana Perino said that Hollywood treated her former boss, President George W. Bush, "pretty bad" as well.
But, Perino said they never called him a white supremacist, as De Niro has tagged Trump.
Gutfeld called the comments "disappointing," adding that it showed "the most outspoken [people] in Hollywood think alike."
He said Trump is a "proxy" for the "half of the country" that Hollywood looks down on.
Juan Williams added that he does not endorse "profane language" from De Niro, Tlaib or Trump himself.
