Rickles apologies would challenge the chief.

At a tribute to Clint Eastwood: “Clint, I’m sorry, but I just gotta say what’s on everybody’s mind here tonight: You’re a terrible actor.” (The Post)
On Robert De Niro, while shooting “Casino”: “They warned me what a serious guy De Niro is. … They warned me not to make jokes. So the third day of shooting, I looked him straight in the face and told him: ‘I can’t work with you. You can’t act.’ The guy fell on the floor. He didn’t stop laughing for 18 weeks. Scorsese fell on the floor, too, but he’s so small we couldn’t find him.” (New York Daily News, as reported in the Post)
On Martin Scorcese, who directed him in “Casino”: “Marty … somebody get a phone book so you can see me. Forty million jobs in show business, I got a midget to direct me.”

While roasting Bob Hope on “The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast”: “We kid about great stars such as you, Bob, why? Because you’re old and washed up.” (YouTube clip)
To Frank Sinatra, while performing at a club in 1957: “Make yourself at home, Frank. Hit somebody.” (As noted by The Hollywood Reporter)
To Johnny Carson, during his first appearance on “The Tonight Show” in 1965: “Hi, dum dum. … Where does it say you butt in, dummy? I’m fed up with you already, you know that?”
He continued: “That’s it, laugh it up. You’re making $50 million a year and your poor parents are back in Nebraska eating locusts for dinner.” (As reported by the Los Angeles Times)
