According to a report from TMZ.com, Mr. Robert De Niro took a full minute while honoring Al Pacino to lambast the president, Donald Trump, a speech which was praised by some and hailed by others.
While at the American Icon Awards, De Niro was praising fellow actor, Pacino, among a list of other big names like Quincy Jones and Evander Holyfield, but his speech took a bit of a turn into Trump-territory. Fans of the legendary actor know he is no fan of Trump.
Of course, Pacino more than deserved his award, the actor stated, however, Trump, on the other hand, is someone who deserves to not only be impeached and removed from his position but also imprisoned. As it was noted above, this isn’t the first time the Goodfellas performer gave his unfiltered opinion on the president.
While at the Tonys, the actor took the stage and said before the cheering crowd, “F*ck Trump.” Interestingly, related to his most criticism of the president at the American Icon Awards, Mr. De Niro was at the Awards ceremony before an audience, coming mostly from Beverly Hills. Ironically, it was that crowd, known for its liberal leanings, in which some people booed Robert De Niro.

Moving past his gripes and dissatisfaction with the United States president, Robert De Niro is currently working alongside Mr. Martin Scorsese, the legendary director, whom Rob has worked with on more than one occasion.
De Niro and Scorsese are currently in the middle of working on The Irishman, featuring Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, and Ray Romano. According to multiple reports, Scorsese had to ask Joe Pesci more than fifty times before he agreed to do it.
The 76-year-old actor last appeared in The Good Sheperd, 2006, and Love Ranch, in 2010, as well as A Warriors Tail where he voiced a mosquito. In 1999, Joe retired from acting and stated he wanted to pursue a music career and enjoy a life away from the cameras.
According to the actor’s Wikipedia page, in 1998, one year before his retirement, he released an album called, Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just For You.
