Tough Guy?: Depressed Robert DeNiro backs anti-Trump

Depressed?  Does a real tough guy admit he's depressed? 
Oh, that's right DeNiro is an actor who plays tough guys but isn't really one in real life.
Yahoo News reports Robert De Niro gave anti-Donald Trump protesters across the United States his backing Friday as he spoke about how "depressed" the tycoon's win in the presidential election had made him.

The 73-year-old star was on the red carpet at the world premiere of his new film "The Comedian" in Los Angeles when he was asked how he was coping with Trump's victory over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

"How am I doing? I'm very depressed," the famously laconic "Raging Bull" actor told reporters.

"We have to just wait and see how things go and keep our eyes ever vigilant on the new government."

Asked if he thought the protests were an appropriate response to the outcome of Tuesday's election, he replied: "Yes, absolutely. Things aren't being done right."

Demonstrators took to the streets in Miami, Los Angeles, New York and other US cities for a third straight night on Friday.
