Robert De Niro Says “F-ck Trump,” Earns Extended Ovation

At the 2018 Tony Awards, The Band's Visit won Best Musical; Angels in America  won Best Revival of a Play; and Andrew Garfield won Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play.

Yet none of these productions or performers is what people are talking about the day after the ceremony.

That's because one of the all-time greatest actors took to the stage at one point and delivered a two-word message about the 45th President of the United States.

"F-ck Trump," Robert DeNiro said as soon as he walked to the microphone to introduce Bruce Springsteen.

The full quote, to be accurate, went as follows:

“I’m going to say this, f-ck Trump. It’s no longer just down with Trump, it’s f-ck Trump.”

The legendary actor’s remarks earned a standing ovation from most of the audience, while a certain word included in them was bleeped out for those watching from home.

(Although we've posted the uncensored version below.)

DeNiro then reacted to his own diss as follows:

It's unclear exactly which actions by Trump prompted the star's simple and pointed criticism, although the President spent all weekend hurling insults at the Prime Minister of Canada.

Just three days before uttering this curse word in front of a national audience, DeNiro reportedly slammed the Commander-in-Chief while speaking at the ceremony for the Jimmy and Rosemary Breslin “American Writer Award” at the Tweed Courthouse in Lower Manhattan.

Sources say he told a group of high school students there that Trump is a purveyor of ” bullsh-t."

In March, the actor called Trump an “idiot” who “lacks any sense of humanity or compassion.”

Expect conservatives to say this sort of comment helps explain why Trump was elected in the first place, labeling Hollywood stars as "elites" who are "out of touch with mainstream Americans."

And expect liberals to stand up and applaud DeNiro, as they did on Sunday night.

In other words:

The comment won't really change a thing.

George H.W. Bush Gets HUGE Ovation For Super Bowl Coin Toss

During his ill-fated run for the presidency, Jeb Bush referred to his father, former President George H.W. Bush, as the greatest man alive.

The 2016 election obviously didn't turn out the way his family had hoped, but judging by the reaction his old man got at Super Bowl LI?

Jeb! hit the nail on the head with that statement.

George and former First Lady Barbara Bush received a massive ovation as they oversaw the coin toss at the big game Sunday night.

The former president, 92, wore a suit with no tie, while his wife of 71 years, 91, donned a blue blouse with a red scarf and beige slacks.

It marked the first public event since the couple – based in Houston, the host of the Super Bowl – was hospitalized within days of each other. 

George went home from the hospital last week after being treated for pneumonia. He had been at Houston Methodist Hospital since January 15.

After experiencing shortness of breath, he was later admitted to the ICU to address an acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia.

Bush’s wife was admitted to the same hospital on January 18 as a “precaution." Her doctors later said she was suffering from bronchitis.

The hospitalizations forced the couple to miss President Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20, though they wished him the best.

Last night, the entire nation saluted the best.

The 41st President of the U.S. was taken to the midfield for the coin toss on a wheelchair while his wife rode alongside him on a golf cart. 

The Bushes were greeted with a well-deserved ovation so loud, the game's referee struggled to be heard during the opening ceremony.

The winner of the coin toss? America. And The Falcons, who went on to lose a second coin toss, and the game in overtime, hours later.

Watch George H.W. Bush do the honors below!

Brad Pitt Stuns Golden Globe Crowd, Receives HUGE Ovation

We now know on whose side Hollywood falls when it comes to Brad Pitt versus Angelina Jolie.

The actor made a surprise appearance on stage at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, where he made a presentation on behalf of Best Motion Picture – Drama nominee (and eventually winner) Moonlight.

But Pitt had to wait a few moments to start talking because the crowd when pretty nuts when he walked up to the microphone.

Matt Damon looked especially tickled and excited to see his former Ocean's 11 co-star at the event.

It's hard not to think that Pitt received this kind of reaction due to his split from Jolie.

Does it mean everyone in attendance hates the actress? Not necessarily… although it means they don't exactly love her, that seems obvious.

But Pitt was accused of child abuse at one point during his ugly divorce from Jolie, with the FBI even investigating charges that he put his hands on 15-year old son Maddox.

So perhaps Pitt's fellow stars were just giving him a hearty greeting as a show of support after all he's been through. (He was clearly of all abuse allegations.)

Or perhaps they just despise  Jolie, as @n8coombs wrote on Twitter:

“Extended applause for Brad Pitt = big by proxy f**k you to Angelina #GoldenGlobes."

Watch Pitt's surprise appearance and the raucous response from the crowd now:
