I’m sure none of you actually watched the Tony’s, because…  well, why would you?  But Robert De Niro took the stage and said, to thunderous applause, “F-ck Trump.”  Though it was edited for television, the audience got the message.  The people in the audience even stood to their feet in a standing ovation of vulgarity.

In other words, the Re-elect Trump Committee has a banner night at the Tonys.  Between Samantha Bee, Bill Maher, Nancy Pelosi and a myriad of others, the left is doing a fantastic job of making sure that whether or not voters like Trump, they will have no appetite to elect Democrats.  The Free Beacon has the story:

Liberal and anti-White House media figures castigated actor Robert De Niro’s profane outburst directed toward President Donald Trump at the Tony Awards, with many of them fuming he was only helping Trump’s cause.

Before introducing Bruce Springsteen at Sunday night’s awards show, De Niro said, “I’m going to say this. F— Trump!” He received a standing ovation as he added, “It’s no longer ‘down with trump,’ it’s f—k Trump!”

MSNBC commentator Steve Schmidt tweeted, “The greatest actor of his generation could have said something important. He could have defended liberal democracy or freedom of speech and expression. He could have stood for Decency. Instead he strengthened Trump’s hand by mirroring his debasement of our culture. Be better.”  And this is from a man who recently called Trump a “stone cold racist.”

Mark McKinnon — creator of The Circus — said, “Hollywood here’s your problem. Deniro says “Fuck Trump.” Bee says Ivanka is “a cunt.” Maher “hopes for a recession to get rid of Trump.” That’s all you got? Do you have any clue as to how this plays right into Trump’s playbook? Keep it up and you’ll help ensure four more years.”

I agree.  How easy and spineless it is to stand in front of a crowd of coastal elites and say exactly what they want to hear.

Big deal.  Here’s a better idea.  How about actually proposing something (or someone) better?
