Robert De Niro on Graduating

Robert De Niro on Graduating

Actor Robert De Niro was the 2017 featured commencement speaker at his alma mater Brown University.  He gave a incongruous address was memorable as it seemed so contrary to the hallowed halls of education on the East Coast. 

De Niro's pearl of wisdom comparing Trump's America as a "crazy dumb assed comedy" is the cherry on the cake for  what one gets now a days for a pricey Ivy League education.

De Niro was scathing about "crazy dumb assed comedies" but that seems to be the genre which he lands most of his roles lately.  At least his attire at the commencement ceremony was not as egregious as the schtick in "Dirty Grandpa" (2016).
