Donald Trump appeared on FOX News Channel’s FOX and Friends Monday morning and responded to Robert De Niro‘s recent criticism of him on the birther issue.
“I won’t mention names, but certain people in the news the last couple weeks, just, what are they doing?” Robert asked Brian Williams at the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend (via Movieline). “It’s crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up. Go get the facts before you start saying things about people.”
“It’s like a big hustle. It’s like being a car salesman. Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up,” Robert said. “How dare you? That’s awful to do. To just go out and speak and say these terrible things? Unless you just wanna get over and get the job. It’s crazy.”
Donald had the opportunity to respond to Robert during his FOX and Friends chat and happily took it!
“Well, he’s not the brightest bulb on the planet,” Donald said. “I have been watching him over the years and I like his acting but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we are not dealing with Albert Einstein.”
“He can say what he wants but the fact is this guy [Obama] has not revealed his birth certificate,” he added. “A lot of people agree with me. With all that I do, what I do best is China, jobs, OPEC. That’s what I do best, that is going to be my strength. It is my strength and I really understand it.”
