Robert De Niro attacks Trump at Tony Awards

Robert De Niro introduces a performance by Bruce Springsteen at the 72nd annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 10, 2018, in NY. "F*ck Trump. It's no longer 'down with Trump, ' it's f*ck Trump". "Our baby-in-chief - the j***-off-in-chief, I call him - has put the press under siege, ridiculing it and trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies", De Niro said.

What viewers at home didn't hear, was that De Niro dropped two F-bombs while hurling insults at President Trump.

Taking to the stage at the annual United States theatre awards, the Tonys, in his hometown of NY, he dropped the F-bomb during the live television broadcast.

Mr. Scarborough added, "If people that applauded De Niro's statement last night don't understand that they are helping Donald Trump's re-election every time they do something like that, they don't understand".

As he took to the stage in NY to introduce a performance by Bruce Springsteen, the Oscar winning screen icon began a furious attack on the US President. "Boy, do we need that now!" Garfield said during his acceptance speech, referencing the Supreme Court's decision to side with a Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple.

But Fox News host Brian Kilmeade had a different take, saying that De Niro's comments were yet another reason not to watch "Meet the Parents", a 2000 film in which De Niro co-starred. "The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast".

"I'm going to say one thing - f**k Trump!" he said, pumping his fists in the air.

De Niro criticized Trump again in April during the opening night of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival calling him a liar and a "madman".
