Robert Redford: Time for Trump’s ‘Dictator’ Presidency to End Now

Fact checked
Robert Redford says Trump's dictator-like presidency needs to end

Hollywood actor Robert Redford has accused President Trump of launching a “dictator-like attack” on the values of the United States of America.

In an op-ed published Tuesday for NBC, the veteran actor called on leaders to remove Trump from office before it’s too late.

“We’re up against a crisis I never thought I’d see in my lifetime: a dictator-like attack by President Donald Trump on everything this country stands for,” Redford wrote.

“It’s time for Trump to go — along with those in Congress who have chosen party loyalty over their oath to ‘solemnly affirm’ their support for the Constitution of the United States. And it’s up to us to make that happen, through the power of our votes.” reports: The actor added that he was willing to give Trump a chance to prove himself when he was elected president in 2016, but has since concluded he is a threat to the United States.

“When Trump was elected, though he was not my choice, I honestly thought it only fair to give the guy a chance,” he explained. “And like many others, I did. But almost instantly he began to disappoint and then alarm me. I don’t think I’m alone.”

“What is happening, right now, is so deeply disturbing that instead of the United States of America, we are now defined as the Divided States of America,” he continued. “Leaders on both sides lack the fundamental courage to cross political aisles on behalf of what is good for the American people.”

Redford also appeared to compare Trump’s presidency to World War II, the Watergate crisis, and the terrorist attacks on September 11th 2001.

It is not the first time that Redford has expressed his fears about the catastrophic consequences of Trump’s presidency. In an op-ed for TIME magazine in April, he warned that impeaching the president would be pointless unless he changes course on the matter of climate change as there “will be no planet to live on.”

Robert Redford remains one of Hollywood’s most decorated actors and filmmakers, and in 2016 was even awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for services to entertainment. However, last year he moaned that he now feels “out of place” in America due to the “bigotry” and “mean-spiritedness” of the country’s politics.


  1. Tell that to the 62+ million Americans that voted for him Bob…
    That’s a funny kind of dictatorship…
    So go back to Hanoi Jane and cry on each other’s shoulder…

  2. Great actor pathetic political views.
    Hey Bob you do realize that president Trump has done more for the working American in 3 yrs than the democrats have done in at least the last forty years.

    • Yeah, but he was in one of those political movies so he must know a lot more than those of us who do now pretend for a living.

  3. redford is off his meds, again. He and jane are WELL past the public’s interest but they still live in their heyday of make believe. They should take their awards and move into the old actors nursing home in LA.

  4. poor Montana, I do believe this libfuck hollywood shitbag has a million dollar mansion on some private property in the state, something I’m certain the shitbag believes the little peon deplorables aren’t entitled to. after all he sees himself as a lord or baron or some shit like that

  5. Whaaa? How ’bout ending the dickatorship of A-dam Schitt and Nonsence Pssylosi?? Nadler is absolutely behaving like a Mao ding dong.

    Time to stop the dicktatorships of Demoncraps and start HANGING them.

  6. These aged creeps keep making these statements but never give us one single example. Just another variation on ‘Orange Man Bad ‘ and ‘Trump is Hitler’.

  7. Sad to see someone who was capable of producing good entertainment fall into the pit of iniquity. Celebrities who think their fame for their talents gives them the intelligence to demean/denigrate a sitting president shows they either have slipped mentally or their opiods aren’t working. Redford has not sway over Trump’s election – never did and never will.

  8. Gee, “remove”, “get rid of”, “drive from office”…WHAT are they tryna say??! DeZero, Redford, John Legend (In His Own Mind), et al….Gee, you’d allllllmooost think they were calling for ASSASSINATION……Cowards and whiners all……….

  9. He was happy while it was all going his way That is to the doghouse of immorality promiscuity drug trafficking wife swapping pedophilia and sodomy and all the rest of his “ liberties and inclusive freedoms “

  10. What news outlet have you been listening to Robert RedTurd. Since when did you become such a loser such that we should give a shit what you think. We used to hold you in high esteem, but you have now failed by displaying your ignorance about what the Socialst Left is aiming for you idiot !!!

  11. The “bigotry” and “mean-spiritedness” of the country’s politics comes from waco liberals, democrats, communists,anarchists, progessives, and most stupid delusional followers of the global warming lie.

    God Bless President Donald John Trump.

  12. When was Bob a big advocate for the Constitution? Which part does he like or demand that Conservatives follow? Did Bob get radicalized kissing Barbra Streisand? (feeling nauseous) or hugging on Hanoi Jane?

    Here’s a piece of American history Bob may want to review: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

    The people decide who will govern them Bob, not Hollywood Stars or Congressmen or intellectuals wearing silk stockings in the Punditariat. It’s the smelly, Bible clinging Deplorables that do the actual work in this country that deserve to choose their leader. The Ruling Elites lost their capacity to lead when they turned their backs on the people and started taking care of themselves by lining their own pockets with the people’s tax dollars.

  13. This poor man. As he has aged he has lost his cognitive abilities. Time for him to be put into a rest home for his own safety I think.

  14. Old Bob was a pretty good actor, but his politics stink. He, DeNiro and others of their ilk need to “love it, or leave it”.

  15. The problem here is that leftists make up the definition of words so when they use a word 90% of the rational people don’t understand what they mean. For example, if Trump were a dictator he would have to do at least one thing that was dictatorial. I haven’t seen that. In fact if he started telling these activist judges to go pound sand on their illegal rulings where the judges don’t even have standing to hear the case (immigration) he could still not be considered a dictator because he alone has the authority to create policy in those cases, but he doesn’t tell them to go pound sand. Instead he let’s it play out in the courts. I bet this azzclown can’t come up with a single dictatorial thing Trump has done, using the actual definition of a dictator. Notice This has been just spouted left-wong talking points, but offered no examples of WTF he is talking about. Because everything he said was about Obama

  16. Do we assume that Redford’s statement suggests he’s also a probable pedophile like so many others in Hollywood wanting impeachment of the president most responsible in world history of stopping the pedophile epidemic that so many deny?

  17. DON is the KING of entertainment even the netwookie^^SS feed 247/365 via the DON.When Don is done it`s back2dah same olt same old 2party deadlocked failing system.DON is a 3rd party unto himself that worries day&nite for mooka4americans and even the ongoing peach party is about spending our money without any voting and without the public backing.Outa sight is the lobby puppets S.O.P since forever.Green party got the most 3rd party votes in modern history but went by the wayside anyway paved over by the lobbistcos wallMcbs monnoplus slowed our net and warped thiers
