THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, Mr. De Niro. You are highly respected, extremely articulate, and a true American Patriot♥️💙🇺🇸. You speaking out means so much, many will stop and listen and it’s so important to get people to listen. I have been hoping Democrats would get out to the Courthouse and challenge TFG and his usual pack of liars, but that hasn’t happened until today. Your presence will draw MEDIA ATTENTION which is exactly what we need- thank you again!!

Totally agree and I’ve been so disheartened that Senate and House Democrats are just standing back in a mute manner letting Trump spew his lies day after day. Yes 🙌 to Mr. Robert De Niro and two of the attacked Capitol police officers for speaking out today as they have several times before. Thank you.

It's so interesting-- if Democrats were to copy Republicans' behavior and go to the courthouse to oppose Republican cant, it's a playground fight in the mud-- not all that helpful to be tainted with association of possibly brawling against MAGA lies. Better to just keep supporting good candidates and winning elections, as Democrats are doing across the country.

Super great that someone famous, and trusted-- Bob! took away attention from Mr. Trump's mouthpiece.

I couldn’t agree more! We have GOT TO CONTROL THE NARRATIVE! I think for too long the Democrats have been too nice and too complacent!

I definitely agree that we have been too complacent. Somehow Democrats have been deluding ourselves that the GOP is going to play by the rules. Trump and his cronies have thrown out all the rules and the other MAGA GOP folks have fallen right in with them. I don't say we should throw out the rule of law but we have to be realistic about how the gloves have come off in politics, especially anything to do with Trump's candidacy.

There’s not enough pushback against Trump. Where are all the people that Trump is promising to punish? Why aren’t they out there constantly pushing back? Politicians, newsmakers, commentators, media people celebrities from Broadway and Hollywood. If Trump doesn’t like him he’s going to punish them. Why are they cowardly sitting with their mouths shut? Every Democrat and Office should be speaking out constantly. Every decent American should be trying to get the vote out talking to the neighbors and talking to their friends. Let’s all do our share.

We’re seeing something happening here! We are TAKING the microphone. We are in THEIR faces, as it should be! The truth is taking hold and the rescumliCons are surely in a panic! About time! Good on DiNero and all who put trump & his cult in their places! Something seems to be building and I’m incredibly inspired by it!

Great respect and thanks to all three of these gentlemen. Thanks for letting us know.

What happened to the integrity of the press? Is Donald Trump and his indictments the only thing worth covering? We have a president who has done more good for this country after inheriting a real shit show from Trump and all the papers care about is whether or not Trump can stay awake during proceedings and how badly his bodily gases stink up the courtroom. Seriously??

Thanks Carrie! Yeah I appreciate these folks for stepping up and taking wind out of the windbag Donald for once.

It's great that people are fired up to stand up to the evil that is Trump and MAGA. But not everyone fights back the same way. There are lots of behind the scenes things that people can do to show their support for Biden and their disdain for what is left of the Republican Party. And if all they can do is vote blue, then that's good enough.

Yeah-- like getting out the BLUE vote today

https://www.fieldteam6.org/all-volunteer-ops

We know that 75% of registered voters vote.

They have no better reason than to vote BLUE, against a promised autocracy-- which has, already, lots of language in place, to implement what will in effect be a police state. Will Mr. Trump and his gang bring in the culture of fear, hate, and duplicity that was Germany in the 1930s-40s?

Today's New Yorker gives a flavor for what the reporting on citizens was like then:

I can’t help being concerned that enough people aren’t concerned. Don’t we all know that our children and our grandchildren are in danger with Trump gets back into office?

You know the story about the boy who cried "Wolf!" It's like that. Democracy was in trouble long before Trump came along, but many people -- many of them straight, white, and middle class and up -- didn't notice. Other people (often non-straight and/or non-white and/or barely keeping their heads above water) had figured out that no matter who won, it wouldn't affect them much. Too many people still don't get that Trump isn't the problem, it's the people and organizations behind Trump. Trump isn't capable of running a business, never mind the whole country. The people and organizations behind him are, or think they are, but they'd never get elected on their own.

Thank you Robert DeNiro, Officer Dunn and Officer Fanone! 🇺🇲👌🏾💙

👉🏾We’re fed up with his sickening moral bankruptcy.

👉🏾We’re fed up with his face, his voice, his smirk, his grifter family.

👉🏾We’re fed up with his total inability to utter something kinda kind, or humble, or appropriate, or TRUE, EVER. Bravo!💙

I don’t have enough words in my extensive vocabulary to thank these three for coming forward to share The Truth today.

I thank Ken Burns for his passionate commencement address this past weekend: the SINGLE most profoundly moving address for all time, but perhaps this time more than most.

And I thank each and every one of the former Trump administration officials who have come forward to share their personal insights about the dangers he poses to not only America, but the world if he’s allowed to ‘reign’ again.

There are more of you out there. THIS is your opportunity to be on the right side of history, make your own history, and Right the wrongs of a dangerous man and his cabal.
