Robert De Niro apologizes to Trudeau for Trump's 'idiotic behaviour'

Robert De Niro apologizes to Trudeau for Trump's 'idiotic behaviour'

Trump is yet to respond to De Niro's latest outburst, but we can be pretty sure he probably will.

"It's F*** Trump", he said, with the audience of actors, directors and producers shrieking and then offering De Niro a standing ovation.

Robert De Niro, fresh off the Tony Awards stage where he verbally attacked the USA president, is now apologizing for Donald Trump's behaviour following the G7 summit.

The 74-year-old star attended a groundbreaking ceremony for the Nobu hotel in Toronto where he told a crowd that he was sorry for the "idiotic behavior of my president".

Trump and his top economic aides launched scathing attacks on Trudeau over the weekend amid their ongoing fight on trade.

"F*** Trump!" he exclaimed.


President Trump called Mr Trudeau "dishonest" and "weak" following the summit on Saturday. Trump advisers also ripped Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber.

Robert DeNiro got right to the point when he took the stage in NY to present a Tony Award on Sunday night, but the television audience didn't get to hear it.

Thompson noted that Trump says nasty things about his political opposition all the time, though Ruhle countered that the recent controversy with Samantha Bee shows that this kind of coarseness "hurts the argument" in political discourse.

When asked about De Niro's remarks, Seawright said he probably would have chosen different words but seemed to praise De Niro for voicing people's "frustration". The exclusive concert residency, "Springsteen on Broadway" - or as De Niro referred to it, "Jersey Boy" - features the Boss performing his music and sharing stories from his 2016 autobiography "Born to Run".

A month later during the opening night of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, De Niro referred to Trump as the "lowlife-in-chief", HuffPost reported.

"Bruce, you can rock the house like nobody else", he said.
