Robert De Niro stole the show at the 2018 Tony Awards just before introducing Bruce Springsteen.
It was simple yet straight to the point:
“I just want to say one thing — F— Trump,” De Niro said while pumping his fists in the air.
After the crowd broke into applause, he followed it up with:
“It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s f— Trump.”
A better quality version of the video can be found online but several of them are bleeping it out.
We took the liberty of providing a user-uploaded video (most likely taken from a smartphone while watching television).
De Niro is a pretty widely known anti-Trumper. He also made comments back in January against Trump when presenting Meryl Streep with the award for best actress at the National Board of Review awards gala.
“It was fascinating to watch The Post. That story took place nearly 50 years ago, but there are many parallels today,” he said of the Streep-starring political drama. “At the time of the story, Donald Trump was suffering from ‘bone spurs.’ Today, the world is suffering from the real Donald Trump.”
If that wasn’t clear enough, De Niro added, “This f—ing idiot is the president. It’s the Emperor’s New Clothes —the guy is a f—ing fool.”
