Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce ripped Robert De Niro for both his profanity-laced tirade about President Trump during the Tony Awards and the backhanded apology he gave for it.
“I’m gonna say one thing: f— Trump!” the iconic actor stated on Sunday, drawing a standing ovation from the crowd.
De Niro apologized for Trump’s “idiotic behavior” while in Toronto on Monday and said his actions were “a disgrace.”
“I think that [De Niro] has really gone from ‘Raging Bull’ to ‘Whining Grandpa,'” Bruce said, referencing the actor’s iconic boxing movie and his most recent project, “The War with Grandpa.”
President Trump commented on the actor’s inflammatory statements on Tuesday, even following his historic summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore.
The president said he believes De Niro might be “punch drunk” and that he doesn’t realize how the economy is flourishing.
“It’s a shame,” Bruce said of De Niro. “The president’s success is upsetting him. For the American people in general, we appreciate the success.”
