Liberal actor Robert De Niro got real personal Sunday night at the Tonys Awards in attacking — for no apparent reason — President Donald Trump, proving to the world that Trump is living rent-free is his head.
To the thrill of the liberal entertainment industry audience at Radio City Music Hall, De Niro brazenly dropped two F-bombs in taking umbrage with Trump. The vulgarity was bleeped out in the US, but can be heard unfiltered in Australia:
*Caution: Strong Language
“I’m gonna say one thing: F*ck Trump!” he declared, thrusting his two fists in the air. “It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s F*ck Trump!”
The actor’s eyes quickly dart around the room, as if he was desperately searching for approval of his defiance, albeit vulgar stance, but that proved to be unnecessary as the room gave him a standing ovation.
But then, this was a theater awards show and it wasn’t a question of if an attack was forthcoming, but when. And with De Niro tapped to introduce Bruce Springsteen to the crowd, that eliminated any real suspense.
De Niro has a well-established hatred of Trump, even threatening the president with a punch in the face in his unhinged, dare we say unhealthy, obsession with the man.

But then, Trump Derangement Syndrome was the order of the day. Playwright Tony Kushner praised De Niro backstage, calling Trump’s election “the Hitler mistake” that put a “borderline psychotic narcissist in the White House,” according to Fox News.
But that was tame compared to what De Niro told high school students in New York as he addressed recipients of the Rosemary Breslin American Writer Award.
The actor launched into an unhinged, profane rant against the president of the United States and proving that liberals don’t stray too far from the prescribes narrative, he too referenced Hitler.
“Our country is led by a president who believes he can make up his own truth. And we have a word for that — bullshit,” De Niro said.
“You might say, as have many professionals, that Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of discharging duties of the President of the United States,” he continued. That he’s afflicted with a narcissistic personality disorder.”
“That he’s a congenital liar. A mean-spirited, soulless, amoral, abusive con-artist son of a b*tch. F*ck Donald Trump.”
Remember, he’s talking to students!
“We’re in a dangerous situation… with Hitler, with other despots, people didn’t take them seriously, they laughed at them,” De Niro concludes. “And then what happened, they turned around and it was too late. We can’t let that happen in this country and you guys are the ones to do it.”
Fox News’ Laura Ingraham summed up well the spectacle at the Tony Awards, noting that deranged reactions like this are precisely why so many Americans support Trump.
“Another ‘celebutainment’ gift to the GOP &
@realDonaldTrump,” Ingraham tweeted.
She included the ever-so-appropriate hashtag, #MeettheFockers.

Here’s a sampling of responses from others who share that point of view:
This is the gift that keeps on giving. De Niro did not learn anything from the Godfather movies. MAGA Trump will win easily in 2020. https://t.co/Vbh5b9CH1t

Inarticulate, Low IQ Robert DeNiro screams ‘F— Trump’ on The Tony Awards and gets a standing ovation. Nothing helps Pres Trump’s popularity more than having the pompous, very elitist Broadway crowd boo him. https://t.co/5RXbrS0lVf #MAGA2018

I’m sorry to see the hate-filled, bitter man that Robert DeNiro has turned into. He was such a great actor. He came to my house on several occasions yrs ago while doing a film with Liza Minnelli in Hyd. Always seemed nice then. Now, not so much! #Tonys2018

I gotta tell ya’ folks, #RobertDeNiro is one brave man. To stand in front of a room of people he know already agree with him and attack the president.
Such courage. 🙄
These idiots are going to make sure Trump is president forever.

I get it, Hollywood actors are generally disconnected from real America, so many (not all, but many) succumb to Leftist groupthink.
It's just a shame that Robert DeNiro ended up being one of them… another celebrity cliché.
