Robert De Niro apologizes for ‘the idiotic behaviour of my president’

With Tony for 'The Band's Visit,' Ari'el Stachel Embraces His Roots

"Nothing helps Pres Trump's popularity more then having the pompous, very elitist Broadway crowd boo him", radio host Mark Simone wrote.

De Niro went on to encourage the audience to vote in November before introducing Springsteen, whose one-man Broadway show is running until December.

Robert De Niro stole the show for the audience at the Tony Awards in NY on Sunday night, when he used his time onstage to once again register his disapproval of US President Donald Trump in the bluntest way possible.

It doesn't happen to him often, but Springsteen's own appearance on the Tonys was almost overshadowed by that of his presenter, actor Robert De Niro, who unleashed an epithet toward President Trump that caused the CBS censors to quickly hit the bleep button (apparently it aired as is in some other countries) and set the social media world afire.

"With regards to the news today, sir, I have only two words for you: Thank you", said Toronto Mayor John Tory to De Niro.

Online, left-wing sentiment echoed the admiration, De Niro's off-hand comment earned him the titles of "genius" and 'national treasure.' Others assumed the glittering Broadway crowd was the flawless representation of the entire American population.

At the Tony awards, De Niro launched an expletive at Trump and pumped his arms for emphasis. Immediately, the audience erupted with claps, cheers and standing ovations. "Larry Kudlow looked like he was drunk yesterday morning on CNN, saying that Trudeau stabbed Trump in the back", De Niro said. "It's disgusting. It's great to be here", said De Niro. He applauded De Niro. I say F... DeNiro! "It's "The Emperor's New Clothes" - the guy is a f***ing fool ... our baby-in-chief - the "J******-in-chief" I call him". And Trump trade official Peter Navarro said there was a "special place in hell" for foreign leaders like Trudeau who deal with Trump in "bad faith".
