I watched him last night and truly believe he may be "punch-drunk, '" Trump tweeted.
An outspoken critic of Trump since the 2016 presidential election, De Niro has chastised Trump in multiple public appearances in the past few days. If so, we don't think this is gonna stick.
A day after the Tonys, De Niro continued to blast the president during a groundbreaking ceremony of the Japanese restaurant Nobu in Toronto. He then added, "It's no longer 'down with Trump.' It's 'f-ck Trump!'" He then pumped both fists, Jake LaMotta-style.
"I'm going to say one thing - f***Trump!"
"Punch drunk", like boxers, because De Niro was famously in Raging Bull.
While Trump didn't approve of De Niro's words, the audience sure did.
De Niro, a noted liberal, has been increasingly critical of Mr Trump, a Republican, at smaller show business events in the past year, but none of them had the profile of the Tony awards.
This was not the first time the Oscar-winning actor attacked Trump so publicly - and so colorfully. "Wake up Punchy!" Trump wrote Wednesday morning, or Tuesday afternoon ET. On Monday, the actor apologized to Canadians for the "idiotic behavior of my president". "And I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7".
