Actor Robert De Niro swears at Donald Trump on live TV

Oscar-winning actor Robert de Niro issued an expletive-laden denunciation of US President Donald Trump during the live television broadcast of the Tony Awards ceremony on Sunday.

De Niro appeared on stage at New York’s Radio City Music Hall to introduce rocker and Tony Awards performer Bruce Springsteen. “I’m gonna say one thing. F*** Trump,” De Niro said, without any preamble.

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. It’s f*** Trump.”
He did not elaborate on his comment and switched immediately to a prepared introduction of Springsteen.

The expletive, known as the F-bomb, was bleeped by the CBS network for millions of television watchers at home, a CBS spokeswoman said. However, it was heard by those in the audience and journalists covering the awards show, which honours the best of Broadway theatre.

De Niro is one of the most respected actors in the United States, with two Oscar wins for Raging Bull and The Godfather: Part II.

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment. CBS also did not return a request for further comment.

De Niro, a noted liberal, has been increasingly critical of Trump, a Republican, at smaller showbusiness events, but none have the high profile and audience of the Tony Awards.

The Tony Awards show was seen by some six million Americans last year.

  1. Monica Lewinsky was a prostitute, sent in by the Mossad to entrap Clinton. She knew why she was going to Washington, as she told her friends, to”put on her presidential knee pads.”

  2. I could care less what DeNiro says, or anything else that goes on in Hollyweird.
    tRump’s actions are endangering everyone on the planet. This N.Y. City gangster is going to get a lot of people killed. After betraying everything he told his supporters, he has proven that Donald Trump is a zionist stooge for Pisrael.
    Trump has shown the world that he is nothing more than a bully, with a loud mouth and zero intellect.
    America is becoming a target for isolation and sooner or later the bully gets a black eye and a bloody nose.

  3. There is no similarity between Clinton and Trump. Clinton was entrapped by a Mossad sting whereas Trump and the Mossad work for the same people.

  4. What struck me straight away is what a brave broth of a boy DeNiro is when the world and his wife have been attacking Trump. Whether it was deserved is neither here nor there. Raising your head above the parapet, when you’re confident of cheap, meretricious popularity seems pretty ignoble to me.
