Trump Attacks Robert De Niro As 'A Very Low IQ Individual,' 'Punch-Drunk'

At this point, we all know that you can't publicly insult President Donald Trump without getting a childish retort, and POTUS has indeed tweeted his comeback.

But Mr Trump hit back by labelling her "one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood".

It's unclear if Trump thinks De Niro had a role in Punch-Drunk Love since he used quotes, but, just to clarify, De Niro did not.

De Niro also apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after Trump called him "weak" and "dishonest".

After a few tweets boasting about his historic summit with Kim Jong-un, the President reverted to name calling, criticizing the film star, whom he called "a very low IQ individual".


CBS leaned on the bleep button during its live trophy-show broadcast's seven-second delay, so viewers on Sunday night had not heard the unexpurgated version of the well-known Trump critic's remarks. "It's f-- Trump." He did not elaborate on his comment.

He famously said he wanted to punch Trump "in the face" during the 2016 US Election, called him a "f***ing fool" and the "baby-in-chief" in January 2018, and the following month said the US was now suffering from a "case of temporary insanity".

After taking the stage at the 2018 Tony Awards this weekend, Robert De Niro had some very choice words for the country's commander in chief: "I'm gonna say one thing: Fuck Trump!" the legendary actor told the audience. During the opening ceremony, the actor apologized - not to Trump, but for him.

Trump, sounding a bit furious, posted a series of tweets against Robert De Niro.

And in 2016, De Niro, who endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at the time, attacked Trump in a video, urging people to vote and saying, "I'd like to punch him in the face".
