Targeted, De Niro speaks out

- — Christie D’Zurilla

Among the dozen-plus critics of President Trump targeted by someone mailing bombs this week, Robert De Niro stood alone as the sole celebrity on the list. On Friday he took advantage of that dubious distinctio­n to send a message.

“There’s something more powerful than bombs, and that’s your vote,” the Oscarwinni­ng actor said in a statement. “People must vote!”

An envelope with a pipeand-wires device was received at his TriBeCa Studios this week. Similar packages were directed toward prominent figures including former President Obama, Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles).
