Trump Finally Responds to De Niro ‘F’ Bomb

It took him nearly two full days but President Donald Trump, back in the White House after his North Korea nuclear summit, is finally responding to the stunning Robert De Niro slam that won a standing ovation.

At Sunday night's Tony Awards, the 74-year old actor, introducing Bruce Springsteen, stood before the cameras and told the world, literally, "Fuck Trump."

The CBS network was able to bleep out the statement before it hit homes in the U.S., but it didn't take long for viewers in less puritanical nations to post the video – uncensored – to social media.

Late Tuesday afternoon the president took two full tweets to attack the "Raging Bull" and "Cape Fear" star.

But Trump, perhaps still jet-lagged, was clearly off his game.

Recycling his infamous slam, "low IQ," the president blasted "punch-drunk" De Niro:

The president has used the same "low IQ" slur against Washington Post conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin, U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski.
