Robert DeNiro has apparently had enough of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump. The actor slammed Trump in an interview with NBC anchor Brian Williams over Donald’s vocal accusations that President Obama was not born in the United States.

According to the Huffington Post, longtime Obama supporter Robert DeNiro got sidetracked into politics while discussing his filming career during an NBC interview.

“I won’t mention names, but certain people in the news the last couple weeks, just, what are they doing? It’s crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up,” he said. “Go get the facts before you start saying things about people.”

When asked if he was talking about GOP front-man Donald Trump, the actor said ‘yes.’ Trump has been extremely vocal about the ‘Birther’ conspiracy in recent weeks despite most Republicans distancing themselves from the issue. Obama provided a short-form birth certificate during the 2008 campaigns, which is accepted as legal proof of birth in U.S. courts. Nonetheless, conspiracy theorists continue to claim the U.S. President was born outside of the U.S.

“It’s like a big hustle. It’s like being a car salesman,” DeNiro said. “Don’t go out there and say things unless you can back them up. 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.”

DeNiro wasn’t the only celebrity to shun Donald. Jerry Seinfeld allegedly pulled out of a charity even hosted by Trump’s son after growing “increasingly uncomfortable” with the pursuit of the “birther” stance by the GOP hopeful.

What do you think of Donald Trump’s stance on the “birther” issue? I honestly find it hard to imagine how it won’t continue to erode his credibility. DeNiro’s got it completely right here. If a U.S. court accepts the evidence, what other authority is there? Give me your thoughts on this in the comment section!
