'F--- TRUMP': Robert De Niro bleeped at Tony Awards

Share

As previously reported, De Niro appeared at the Tony Awards, where he took the stage to introduce a performance by Bruce Springsteen and simply opened with some expletives about the president.

"I'm going to say one thing: F-- Trump", De Niro said, receiving a standing ovation.

He then added, as the crowd rose in a standing ovation: "It's no longer down with Trump".

"Nobody's talking to you anymore", Gutfeld said on De Niro, paraphrasing one of the actor's most famous lines.

MSNBC host and fellow Trump critic Stephanie Ruhle also criticized Mr. De Niro's approach, though she admitted she understands his frustration. The article has a quote from some Broadway guy saying 'Who's gonna argue with De Niro?' Ah, tens of millions, maybe.

The Tony Award show rant was actually dialed back a bit for Robert De Niro, who had previously said he wanted to punch Donald Trump in the face. "Boy, do we need that now!"

While CBS was quick to catch the swear for US audiences, the word wasn't censored during the Australian broadcast.

The 68-year-old star received a Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre in honour of his critically acclaimed show.

And the more level-headed commenters pointed out the ultimate hollowness of De Niro's habitual statement. "The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast". After leaving the summit, Trump quickly reneged on a joint communique after Trudeau reiterated to reporters that US tariffs on Canada that site national security as a rationale are "insulting" to Canadians. "I know what you're all thinking, sure", Groban said.
