Robert de Niro publicly insulted trump and received an ovation

The Oscar-winning actor of "Raging Bull" fame said, "I just want to say one thing - F**k Trump".

She noted that De Niro's remarks came on the heels of comedian Samantha Bee calling first daughter Ivanka Trump a "feckless c--." "It's no longer 'Down with Trump, ' it's F-K TRUMP".

But Fox News host Brian Kilmeade had a different take, saying that De Niro's comments were yet another reason not to watch "Meet the Parents", a 2000 film in which De Niro co-starred.

Robert De Niro rallied the Tony Awards crowd by chanting "F - k Trump", on Sunday, but that was hardly new material for Bobby D.

De Niro made his comments at a groundbreaking for a new restaurant and hotel complex in Toronto.

It's also a surprising departure for Burton, whose name has become synonymous with a Gothic flair and kabuki-mask faces. But Dumbo has a unique ability that soon garners the attention of the greedy entrepreneur - and obvious P.T.


Robert De Niro isn't one to mince his words when talking about Donald Trump and Sunday night was no different, as he took the stage at the 2018 Tony Awards to have his say.

His statement was responded by a big round of applause, from the audience which translated into a standing ovation. "Boy, do we need that now".

The CBS television network, which was broadcasting the event live but with a delay of a few seconds, scrambled to bleep out De Niro's expletive.

The actor also apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Group of Seven on behalf of Americans for Trump's about-face after the G7 summit concluded in Charlevoix, Que. "I'd like to punch him in the face!" "Who's gonna argue with him?" he said.

"Our baby-in-chief - the j***-off-in-chief, I call him - has put the press under siege, ridiculing it and trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies", De Niro said.
