On Sunday, Hollywood leftists gathered to give each other awards for pretending to be something they’re not. Actor Robert De Niro was one of the presenters at the award ceremony in New York City and he used the opportunity to bash President Trump.
“I just want to say one thing. F*ck Trump. It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s f*ck Trump,” he said, prompting the audience to respond with a standing ovation.

But, Twitchy said, the profanity could be heard in some broadcasts.

So, the entertainment industry is trying to make Trump a two-term POTUS?

It seems that way.
Keep in mind that Trump is now in Singapore working to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and literally end a 60-year-old war.
Reaction was pretty much what one might expect.

Writing at Newsbusters, Karen Townsend said:
The very first award, presented was to the Best Leading Actor and it started the ball rolling. Actor Andrew Garfield won for Angels of America and gave a shout-out to the LGBT community. Then he took a little swipe at the recent Supreme Court decision to allow a small business owner in Colorado the freedom of practicing his religion. The baker turned down the request of a gay couple to bake their wedding cake. So, Garfield said, “Let’s just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked.” Not real deep thinking, but the message was delivered.
There was a performance by the drama department of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The school in Parkland, Florida, you will remember, was the scene of a mass shooting by a disturbed student. The Director of the Drama Department, Melody Herzfeld, received an award for Excellence in Theatre Education for sheltering 65 students in a small office for 2 hours that day. Fortunately, we were all spared any diatribes about gun violence or anti-NRA screeds.
I enjoy theatre. I especially enjoy musical theatre. For that reason, the show is tolerable for me because of the performances throughout the evening. The smug, self-congratulatory tone wasn’t so entertaining, though. Only in their little Broadway bubble are these folks better than anyone buying a ticket to see one of their plays. Maybe one day that message will be delivered. How does cursing the president, duly elected by half of the country, bring about the unity and love that all these Broadway people preach?
In February 2011 I first opined that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. Sadly, leftists like De Niro prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.
Remember this in November — they don’t just hate Trump — they hate you for supporting him and they hate America for electing him into the White House.
