Robert De Niro stunned the Tony Awards on Sunday night by opening his comments with a simple outburst: “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘Fuck Trump!’”
“I’m going to say this — fuck Trump!” the actor exclaimed at the famed Broadway award ceremony. “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s Fuck Trump!”
The comment received rapturous applause and a standing ovation from the crowd, as De Niro raised his fists in the air triumphantly.
One of the greatest actors of all time, and now one of my personal heroes.
Yeah, Fuck Trump! Exactly!
That was not the only amazing moment from last night’s Tony Awards, there was also this performance by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students.
The reason these students were there was to support their teacher, Melody Herzfeld, who saved the lives of 65 of her students and was honored with this year’s award for excellence in theater education.
All in all, it was a pretty magical night, made even more so by the inspiring words of Mr. Robert De Niro.
