Daily Mail helped explain more about the De Niro apology. “Robert De Niro has taken it upon himself and is apologizing to Canadians for the ‘idiotic behavior of my president’ just one day after the actor launched an expletive at Donald Trump at the Tony awards.
De Niro said Monday Trump’s remarks about Canada are a ‘disgrace’ and apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and others who attended the Group of Seven summit of leaders in Canada.
…realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!

‘I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president,’ De Niro said as the audience of a few dozen cheered.
‘I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7,’ De Niro continued, ‘It’s disgusting. Speaking after the actor, Toronto Mayor John Tory to say to him, ‘Thank you.’
Trump called Trudeau ‘dishonest’ and ‘weak’ following the summit on Saturday. Trump advisers also ripped Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber.
De Niro made his comments at a groundbreaking for a Nobu hotel in Toronto. De Niro co-owns the chain, and the Toronto project will feature a restaurant, hotel and apartments that go for seven figures. He, namesake chef Nobu Matsuhisa and their team used golden shovels to ceremonially break ground on the luxury project.
At the Tony awards, De Niro launched an expletive at Trump and pumped his arms like a boxer for emphasis.
‘F**k Trump’ he told the adoring audience.
Many in the audience stood and cheered, while TV censors quickly bleeped out the offending words.”
It seems like De Niro was using his distaste for Trump to get himself in the headlines again, because it seems very convenient that he was breaking ground at one of his restaurant/hotel projects. How ironic it is that he’s making anti-Trump comments and going viral just as he’s promoting his new business.
Is De Niro using his hatred for Trump to keep himself relevant so that the news and independent media outlets will mention his new projects? Is De Niro trying to use hatred to fuel the growth of his own businesses and save the end of his career in regards to his non-acting projects? That might be the case and the reason for all of De Niro’s constant insults and barrage of attacks that seemingly go unnoticed.
He’s like the male version of Rosie O’Donnell in the sense that they both constantly throw insults at President Trump and most of the time it comes out of nowhere and is unwarranted.
