"De Niro gets up, says, "eff Trump", and gets a standing ovation?"
Robert De Niro speaks onstage during the National Board of Review annual awards gala at Cipriani 42nd St, Jan. 9, 2018, in New York City. The expletives sparked a roaring reaction from the audience, with numerous celebrities standing up.
At Sunday night's Tony Awards, De Niro launched an expletive at Trump.
"I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president", De Niro said in Toronto at the groundbreaking of the Canadian Nobu restaurant, where he was dining with celebrity chef and business partner Nobu Matsuhisa, according to The Globe and Mail.
With the audience of theatre actors, directors and producers shrieking and rising to their feet in applause, De Niro said: "It's no longer down with Trump". At this point, we all know that you can't publicly insult President Donald Trump without getting a childish retort, and POTUS has indeed tweeted his comeback.
"After De Niro, CBS told us to do something drastic, so here we are", Groban joked. "And I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7. Wake up Punchy!" The President tweeted while on Air Force One, as he flies back to the United States following his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Ahead of the 2016 presidential election, De Niro said he'd like to "punch [Trump] in the face".
