Joe Biden ‘Snapped’ spot showcases Robert De Niro voiceover

Expect to see this ad in battleground states on broadcast and everywhere on cable.

One of the most celebrated movie stars of the last half century is making a cameo in the 2024 presidential race.

Robert De Niro is lending his vocal talents to the Joe Biden campaign to make a familiar case: that Donald Trump winning the 2024 election would imperil democracy itself.

“From midnight tweets, to drinking bleach, to tear-gassing citizens, and staging a photo op. We knew Trump was out of control when he was President. Then he lost the 2020 election — and snapped. Desperately trying to hold onto power. Now he’s running again. This time threatening to be a dictator. To terminate the Constitution,” De Niro says in the ad.

“Trump wants revenge. And he’ll stop at nothing to get it.”

“Donald Trump is obsessed with his own revenge and retribution, claiming there will be a ‘bloodbath’ if he loses and promising to be a dictator on ‘day one’ if he wins — even calling for the ‘termination’ of the Constitution,” said Julie Chavez Rodriguez, Biden-Kamala Harris 2024 Campaign Manager.

“This ad lays out the clear contrast voters will see a month from now when Trump stands on the debate stage next to Joe Biden: Trump is running to regain power for himself, Joe Biden is running to serve you, the American people.”

Expect to see this ad in battleground states on broadcast and everywhere on cable.

    There ya go, IBS. Now in addition to Fox News and Truth Social, you have Robert DeNiro telling you Trump said he’s going to terminate the constitution. And I don’t know who your news source of interest Joy Beehair is, but she probably reported it too.

      Trump gonna terminate the Constitution? Uh huh. Oh and he will become a Dictator too. More laughter. Finally I’m guessing DeNiro is threatening to leave the US if Trump is elected. Yet again, hilarious.

        You’re calling Trump a liar, IBS. It’s on Troof Social. I am sure you’ve read it. Probably every morning.

        The dictator thing, yeah Trump said that too, but that was just him running his mouth faster than whatever brain might still be viable in Nappy Head.

        But the “terminate the constitution” thing, it’s on Troof in its entirety, and its not him being glib like the dictator thing.

        It’s what he says he will do. He flat out told us. He then says everyone saying “look what he said” is lying, and that’s how you know he meant it.

        19 YEAR OLD HOWLER MONKEY, are you thinking a trump reign would be better than a democracy ? is your last name trump? howler monkey is the only name i know you by. trump is way more dangerous than you give him credit for. how childish of you. i bet you ride a motorcycle with no helmet or shoes.

          Okay Rick. Now explain to me how Trump can single handily eliminate the Constitution and declare himself a dictator? It’s a great conspiracy theory you probably heard from Joy Behar but it simply won’t happen. Now tell me about those Jordanian illegals that attempted infiltration into Quantico. Explain that one to a legal US citizen like me.

            19 YEAR OLD HOWLER MONKEY, there are many places to find correct unfiltered information on what and how trump can be a danger to the country. after you digest that, you will know what others know. do you actually think dems are making things up about trump. if so, you are dumber than i previously thought.

          Stealing my use of the term “howler monkey” is flattering I guess. Can’t you come up with something original on your own or do you need a teleprompter, cheat sheets, and cue cards? Come in old man.

            Sorry Peachy you didn’t invent howler monkeys not caught up on the news? It’s climate change-oopps can’t say that in Free FL
            Mexico’s baking heatwave and desperate drought are so severe that they’re causing monkeys to drop dead out of trees. Worse still, temperatures are expected to climb even further in the next few weeks ahead.
            At least 138 howler monkeys have been found dead in the Gulf Coast state of Tabasco since May 16, according to the Associated Press (AP). Many others have been found seriously ill.

    The bloodbath comment is pure distortion. Trump was referring to the auto industry and what would happen to IT, with a second Biden term.
    Trump is a complete scumbag, but let’s stick to the facts, they are bad enough.

      Agree. The bloodbath thing was referring to the collapse of a specific industry.

      “Terminate the Constitution,” however, is what the man wrote and it’s what he meant. Full post is on Troof Social under Donald J Trump.

      IBS asks “how would he do that?”. Does it matter? Even if this plan fails like his last plan, why would anyone want him trying again unless MAGA really means plain old Death To America and not merely Death To Today’s America like the Trumpfitadists pretend it means

      I would not say “pure distortion”.

      Yes, it came as he was discussing the auto industry, but his statement was:

      “Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s gonna be a bloodbath for the whole — that’s gonna be the least of it — it’s gonna be a bloodbath for the country. That’ll be the least of it,”

      It’s not a stretch of the imagination at all to presume the first “it’s gonna be a bloodbath for the whole – ” meant the auto industry. The whole auto/car industry. OK. I can buy that he meant that in that part of the statement.

      But he follows it with “that’s gonna be the least of it — it’s gonna be a bloodbath for the country”. Then he repeats “That’ll be the least of it,”

      Likewise, it’s not a leap at all to suppose that what he meant by “the least of it” was the auto industry problems he was just talking about.

      So, by just using what words mean, he really did say that if he is not elected it will be a bloodbath for the country and the horrible stuff he was just talking about re: the car industry will be the least of it.

        Some on the right fumed when the government bailed out Chrysler, and later GM. Those loans were repaid. Failure of the auto industry would cascade down into all sorts of other employers, large and small.
        I certainly dont defend Trump but he speaks in hyperbolese, he alone can fix it, the largest crowd in inaugural history, etc. because he is an exaggerating liar. But I do think the press takes innocuous statements and runs with them a bit too much. I’ll stand by my interpretation of what he meant, along with his statement about “uneducated voters” which was in response to elitists claiming the uneducated were his base. Trump is a horror show for democracy by any standard, I just think sinking to his level by distorting things allows the whatabouters to stand with him “because everybody does it.” Trump actually said “If everybody voted a Republican would never get elected” and “Everybody lies.” Both arguably accurate statements.

        Trump did his little dance when said “bloodbath” about the auto industry. Only his true believers are supposed to know what he really means. Everyone else is told they took his words out of context. But when the context is his little dance, the little dance overrules the stated, diversionary context. It’s a game he plays to sew his voter-members with their distrust of the media.

    The Headline for this piece was deceptive. It made it sound as if Biden were the one who “snapped.” Those of us with larger brains knew exactly what the headline should have been.
    It’s Trump who “snapped.” More than that, and more concerning, because mental lapses can be cured, but dementia cannot.

      I agree. The headline wasn’t great.

      Joe Biden’s spot named “Snapped” showcases Robert De Niro voiceover is less unclear but, lol, still not great
