Robert De Niro launches lazy F-bomb at Trump on live TV, crowd goes way too wild

"I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president", De Niro said, winning big cheers from the dozens who turned up for the groundbreaking ceremony.

"So when De Niro finally got the call to see Springsteen play live, he said 'yes without asking any questions".

The president called Trudeau "disgusting" and "weak" for how he pushed back against steep tariffs imposed by the US on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and other trade allies.

These comments are the latest in a slew of public appearances in which the actor made public comments lambasting the president.

The Los Angeles native went to Instagram Monday (June 11) to share footage of De Niro getting at Trump.

De Niro is a highly respected actor, having garnered two Oscars for his roles in Raging Bull and The Godfather: Part II.

De Niro appeared on stage at New York's Radio City Music Hall to introduce rocker and Tony Awards performer Bruce Springsteen.

"I'm going to say one thing: F**k Trump!" And then after the audience burst into laughter applause, he doubled down: "It's no longer 'down with Trump.' It's 'fuck Trump!'"

American viewers watching the Tonys at home only heard silence - the broadcast on CBS bleeped De Niro's expletive-heavy intro - but they saw the audience's largely enthusiastic reaction, the Associated Press reported. "Even more important in these perilous times, you rock the vote. Boy, do we need that now!"

"This is deeply appreciated and thank you for making me feel so welcome on your block", Springsteen said.

Kushner denounced Trump's presidency as "the Hitler mistake" that let a "borderline psychotic narcissist in the White House".

He applauded De Niro.
