Does Trump Really Want To Trade Jabs With Robert De Niro?

A lot of people know Robert De Niro as Jack Byrnes, Gaylord "Greg" Focker's future father-in-law in Meet the Parents. Greg Focker looked to propose to his girlfriend, Pam Byrnes, and was immediately greeted by awkwardness by the airline losing the engagement ring Greg was going to propose to Pam with. Ben Stiller's character never seemed to impress Robert De Niro's character; Jack takes an instant dislike towards Greg and openly criticized anything that seemed idiosyncratic to him and his family, namely being a male nurse.

De Niro takes on more of a powerful role in Casino as Sam "Ace" Rothstein, a gambling handicapper assigned to oversee day-to-day operations at the Tangier's casino in Las Vegas, and asserts himself as a smart man who could take advantage of gaming laws that allow him to work in casinos while his gaming license is pending. During this period, he doubles the casino's profits.

His further personality is revealed in this defining moment in the 1995 film:

De Niro's attitude towards John Bloom's character (Donald Ward), and later his firing of Ward, is something De Niro has shown no secret towards regarding Donald Trump.

Robert De Niro made a speech during the Tony awards two Sundays ago and upped the ante on his rhetoric, if anything, from "Down with Trump" to "F*** Trump!" This came on the heels of Trump slighting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other G7 leaders for the President's idiotic behavior (showing up late to the breakfast meeting discussing gender equality, leaving early to meet with Kim Jong Un and not signing a communique), to name some idiotic behavior that De Niro called "a disgrace" and "disgusting."

Not surprisingly, Trump fired back with a Tweet of his own, calling him "low IQ" (he's called Maxine Waters and Mika Brzezinski this before) and "got knocked out by a few real boxers in movies."

Are you sure you want to take on this guy?

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
