Thirty-six hours after De Niro drew a standing ovation by crying "Fuck Trump" at the Tony awards, the president responded by attacking the two-time Oscar victor as a "very low IQ individual".
Yes, even a man who effectively represented the Western world to one of the planet's most notorious dictators still managed to have his ego bruised by an entertainer's outbursts.
De Niro has been an outspoken critic of Trump, even saying in May he barred the president from visiting any locations of his swanky restaurant, Nobu. At least these units aren't in charge of leading global diplomatic efforts. "F-k Trump!" As the audience erupted in cheers, De Niro quickly added, "It's no longer 'Down with Trump.' It's 'F-k Trump!"
Rolland Garros Final: Nadal vs Thiem
Had Cecchinato not tightened in the second set, when he held three set points, it might have been a different result. After holding there, Nadal broke del Potro to take that set and was on his way, taking 14 of the last 17 games.
"De Niro gets up, says, "eff Trump", and gets a standing ovation?"
"I'm going to probably have to move there", De Niro joked on the day of the result. "I watched him last night and truly believe me may be 'punch-drunk'".
"He repeated 'F*** Trump" a second time and received a standing ovation from the crowd at the awards show for excellence in Broadway theater, held in NY.
"I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president", he told the crowd. 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.
