Silver Screen icon Robert De Niro received a standing ovation at the Tony Awards when he exclaimed, “First I wanna say, `F*ck Trump.” It`s no long `Down with Trump,` it`s F*ck Trump.”
Sometimes the eloquent words of a statesman like a Winston Churchill or a Barak Obama are needed when the West needs to be warned about an existential threat to democracy.
Sometimes the primal scream of a prophet is called for when a nation needs to wake up to the truth that the Barbarians aren`t at the gate, but in the halls of power.
De Niro is spot on, it`s no longer “Impeach Trump” or “Dump Trump,” but “F Trump!”
The time for civil debate with Trump supporters is over, they`ve had plenty of time to discern that the short-fingered vulgarian is unworthy of being dogcatcher, let alone the President of the United States. I might as well waste my time trying to convince a Nazi that Hitler wasn`t a good person.
When I see Trump my visceral reaction is: F Trump!
When I hear Trump speak my reaction is: F Trump!
When I hear a sycophant praise him my reaction is F Trump!
It`s a crying shame that CBS bleeped out De Niro`s shining moment. “F Trump” should be blaring from every public address system in America.
