Robert De Niro says he’s running out of dinero.The coronavirus dealt a massive financial blow to the actor’s finances he revealed in court, as his estranged wife asked for an emergency order to raise her monthly American Express card credit limit from $50,000 to $100,000.The “Irishman” actor appeared by phone on a Skype call in his Manhattan divorce case with Grace Hightower as her lawyer told a judge that De Niro unfairly cut her monthly Am-Ex allowance from $100,000 to $50,000 and said she and their children had been banned from an upstate compound where De Niro is staying

"... his estranged wife asked for an emergency order to raise her monthly American Express card credit limit from $50,000 to $100,000." I'm no De Niro fan but ... wow. $100,000 a month?

De Niro deserves anything bad that happens to him. No sympathy, empathy, or care here. Anyway, he should be giving his black former wife and his half black kids all his wealth anyway. How dare he deny them access to one of his many homes. Stop hanging on to that white privilege, Bob! Pay yo' reparations.

Aww, what a shame. Having a lunatic, entitled ex-wife with a $50,000 PER MONTH credit card account seems like it may have something do with it. Drill a hole that big in the bottom of even a big bank account, and soon enough it will run dry. Lots of families live very nicely on that monthly amount PER YEAR. And needing to increase that to $100K per MONTH......is just amazingly greedy and entitled. 💰 💰 But, any bad things happening to a jerk like this are just his own hate and obnoxiousness coming around to bite him in the wallet. 😀

At this point, maybe Hillary is tripling down or quadrupling down. She is still beating a dead horse – the loser of the 2016 presidential election wanted the viewers of Trevor Noah’s late-night television show to know that Trump’s victory was illegitimate and she has thoughts or something. She doesn’t have any new thoughts, mind you, but she is bitterly clinging to her old thoughts. Watching a video of the interview, it is easy for anyone who paid attention to the 2016 election or is old enough to remember the administration of Bill Clinton to understand the irony in most of Hillary’s answers to the softball questions asked by Noah.

"Absolutely no, it did not happen. That is false. That is another lie designed to deflect from the president's own very bizarre relationship with Russia; to distract from the much validated reality that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump," Rice said during a discussion with Washington Post Live.

Instead of having trained officers conducting traffic stops, the new policy will send in unarmed civilian city workers to deal with traffic offenders.

An article published in the Los Angeles Times Tuesday said that the “Star-Spangled Banner” should be replaced by Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me.” LA Times contributor Jody Rosen cited “viral posts on social media” which said the anthem is racist, then argued it is aesthetically a bad song in the article. Rosen concluded saying the message of “Lean on Me” can be a foundation for a “decent” society. “If the point of a national anthem is to provide a mnemonic, a reminder in music and words of the ideas and values that this place is supposed to stand for, you could do worse than ‘Lean on Me,’” Rosen wrote.
