Well, Robert De Niro has once again put his arrogance and ignorance on display and pulled hundreds in attendance at this year’s Tony Awards into the fold of ignorance and shame with him.
You may remember back in January the has been actor from New York made his disdain for President Trump clear with the following rant during a speech at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala:
“Our baby-in-chief — the j##k-off-in-chief, I call him — has put the press under siege, ridiculing it and trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies. This f##king idiot is the President. It’s ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ — the guy is a f##king fool… our baby-in-chief — the ‘J#####s-in-chief’ I call him.”
A few months later De Niro took his show on the road to a climate change event in the Middle East, telling his audience in Dubai:
“I am visiting from a “backward” country suffering from “temporary insanity.”
“In the country I’m describing, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency suggested last week that global warming may be a good thing for humanity.”
“I am talking about my own country, the United States of America. We don’t’ like to say we are a ‘backward’ country so let’s just say we’re suffering from a case of temporary insanity.”
Fast forward to the Tony Awards and the effects of Trump Derangement Syndrome are really starting to show on Mr. De Niro… He is speaking in much shorter sentences and his vocabulary is deteriorating.
When De Niro took stepped up to the mic to introduce Bruce Springsteen, he uttered the following:
“First, I wanna say, F#^k Trump. It’s no longer “down with Trump,” it’s F#^k Trump.”
His simple-minded comment brought the ultra-liberal Hollywood liberal elitist to their feet and he received a standing ovation.
Unlike in days past when you either shook a man’s hand or punched him in the face, people expressed their views via Twitter. Not all liberals approved of his juvenile comments though and in a rare display liberals were fighting among themselves as you can see in this Tweet from Unite & Fight:
And it merely served as a distraction and reason for trump followers to rally. Everyone would have been better served if he had, oh, I don’t know, merely recited a list of the top ten disgusting things trump has done to undermine the US.

In another comment in the same thread, a liberal Springsteen fan did not appreciate DeNiro making the moment about himself:
Maybe, but I wonder what they think of #RobertDeNiro in #NewJersey?
That grandstanding dick was there 2 introduce #TheBoss not turn the honor of presenting #BruceSpringsteen into a standing ovation for HIM.
New Yorkers may be smirking but some in Jersey may b thinking #FuckDeNiro

There were even a couple of Trump fans that came to the defense of “well-meaning liberals”… Rare though they may be. LOL
Robert De Niro you have again cheapened yourself & embarrassed well meaning liberals everywhere! Do you think being so vulgar on live tv does anything but destroy your cause? You probably don’t cause your Hate is all you have to share. SAD! https://t.co/tLWwGeljkc via @variety

And no Twitter argument is complete without at least one meme:
Rocket Man: "Wow, Mr. Trump, Robert De Niro must not like to win!"
Trump: The looney Left only knows how to strike out! I love to win for 🇺🇸

And I will end the Tweets with the ever-present “what if” Tweet because someone always has to ask “what if [insert topic] Obama.”
Can you just imagine what would’ve happened if an actor had said “F…. Obama” on the Tony Awards? Of course all the libs stood up & clapped. So disrespectful to say about any sitting president. I say F… DeNiro! Obnoxious buffoon! #RobertDeNiro #Tonys2018

Whatever your viewpoint, there are a couple of things for certain…
- Robert De Niro suffers from an acute case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. He should probably not have access to firearms.
- President Donald J. Trump is living rent-free in Robert De Niro’s head and is making a mess of his living space. LOL
Here is the unedited, unbleeped video of Robert De Niro making a fool of himself:
Here is a backup copy in case YouTube deletes the one above… Although that is doubtful since they are Trump haters.
