Actor Robert De Niro cursed on CNN's "Reliable Sources" while discussing why President Trump should be impeached.

De Niro said he did not used to believe Trump was mentally ill until he saw him talking to the press outside the White House and was sweating profusely.

"I said, ‘This guy is not even aware of what he’s — he should at least ask somebody for a handkerchief or something and dry himself off. This is something very strange,’" he said on Sunday.

"And when you say that, folks on Fox come after you. I remember the Tony’s when you got up there and cursed," host Brian Stelter began.

"F**k em, f**em," De Niro interjected.

"Well, you know, this is cable so it’s not an FCC violation, but it is still a Sunday morning, but it is still a Sunday morning," Stelter said. "Why do you choose to go this way?"

"We are in a moment in our lives — in this country where this guy is like a gangster. He’s come along and he’s said things, done things we say over and over again. This is terrible. We’re in a terrible situation. We’re in a terrible situation. And this guy just keeps going on and on and on without being stopped," De Niro said in his defense.
