Robert DeNiro repeated calls to accuse Donald Trump during an interview with CNN, where he referred the president as a & # 39; gangster & # 39; who can be mentally ill.
Never shy about his feelings for Trump, DeNiro praised House Democrats' recent decision to open an investigation into allegations of reliable sources with Brian Stetler on Sunday morning.
& # 39; It must happen. There is no way around it, & said the 76-year-old actor.
DeNiro said he doesn't think Trump & # 39; is capable of & # 39; to resign and fear that the president would refuse to leave the White House, even if Congress votes to accuse him.
& # 39; He will say that it is rigged, this or that, & # 39; said DeNiro. & # 39; This man has done everything possible, much worse than I ever thought. The day after he was chosen, I said, give him a chance. You will never know. He's worse than I could have ever imagined. & # 39;
Under pressure from Stetler to explain why he is so anti-Trump, DeNiro replied: & I don't know. I think he's crazy in a way. Part of him is just crazy.
& # 39; Possibly medical too, I begin to think, & # 39; he added.
& # 39; When I saw him waiting for the helicopter to go somewhere and talk and sweat endlessly, I said: "This man is not even aware of what he (is doing). He needs at least someone to Ask for a handkerchief or something and dry yourself. "
& # 39; I mean, where are we? This is a crazy world. What is going on? This guy is crazy. We have to get it out. & # 39;

DeNiro – an outspoken critic of Trump in the past – praised House Democrats' recent decision to open an investigation into allegations of reliable sources with Brian Stetler on Sunday morning
Stetler asked DeNiro: & # 39; Do you ever look at the president and think he is performing as if he is playing an act or something? & # 39;
The actor said he thinks & # 39; Trump in a certain way & # 39; before he accuses Fox News commentators of doing the same.
& # 39; I can't believe they would really care about this madness, & # 39; said DeNiro of & # 39; these experts at Fox & # 39 ;.
& # 39; This guy shouldn't be a president, period. & # 39;
Stetler said that DeNiro was attacked by Fox commentators because of his earlier criticism of the president, especially after he was speaking at the Tony Awards in 2018 & F # 39; T *** & # 39; had stated.
DeNiro interrupted: & # 39; F *** & # 39; em. F *** & # 39; em & # 39; before apologizing to the producer's off camera.
He further explained why he continues to publicly share his vitriolic feelings toward the president despite the severe backlash.
& # 39; We are in a moment in our lives, in this country, where this guy is like a gangster, & # 39; said DeNiro.
& # 39; He went along and said things, did things and we keep saying: & # 39; This is awful. We are in a terrible situation. We are in a terrible situation. & # 39; And this man just keeps going without being stopped. & # 39;
DeNiro said he thinks that Trump sometimes performs before accusing Fox News commentators of defending the president
Stetler also asked DeNiro if he would reward his role as special counselor Robert Mueller on Saturday Night Live, who would premiere his new season this weekend.
The actor said he wasn't sure if he would be back on the show again this fall, but revealed that he had set up a new skit for the character Mueller.
& # 39; I suggested (the producers): "Why don't we do anything at SNL where I do all the things that people would want Mueller to have done, should have done, could have done when he was dropped off," he said .
DeNiro did not say how the producers responded to that idea.
The CNN interview was part of DeNiro & # 39; s press trip for his new Netflix film The Irishman, starring Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, and directed by Martin Scorcese.
It came less than a week after House Democrats launched an accusation investigation in the midst of allegations that Trump was pressuring his counterpart in Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.
DeNiro said he wasn't sure if he would resume his role as Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Saturday Night Live, which debuted its new season this weekend
