Donald Trump was attacked on Tuesday by Robert De Niro, calling him “a very Low IQ individual” after the Oscar-winning actor attack against the US president at the Tony Award Ceremony, which was broadcast directly on TV .
Two days after the breakout of De Niro, who criticized Trump, the American president said he saw the controversial quote and added that ” I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch-drunk’. – obviously he was referring to (Raging Bull, 1980, directed by Martin Scorsese), in which the actor plays the self-defeating boxer Jay Lama.
De Niro‘s representatives did not respond immediately when they were asked by the Reuters news agency to comment on Trump‘s placement.
The audience in the Hall where the Tony Award Ceremony was held acclaimed the actor when he, completely unannounced as he presented the singer Bruce Springsteen, acted in an abusive manner against Trump. The CBS television network, which directly broadcast the awards, chose to erase, interfering with the traditional beep, the abusive expression used twice by the famous actor.
“Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received to many shots to the head by real boxers in movies. I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch-drunk, “Trump wrote in his Twitter “I guess I do not realize that the economy is doing better than ever, employment is breaking record, many companies are investing again in our country. Wake up Stupid! “, He added in a second post.
De Niro, known for being in favor of progressive politics and being a supporter of the Democratic Party, has repeatedly fought against Trump during the past year in various broadcasts and events, but none of them had high audiences or much more the prestige of the Tony awards.
