    Friday Feb 3 | Creative Loafing

    The bad news regarding Robert De Niro is that the actor has backed away from his 2016 claim that he'd like to punch Psychopath-in-Chief Donald Trump in the face - a shame, since a bout between Raging Bull and Raging Bullshit sounds like a guaranteed good time.
