The King of comebacks hit back against actor Robert De Niro on Tuesday after being provoked by the star’s expletive-laced rant aimed at the president during Sunday night’s Tony Awards.
President Donald Trump, hilariously finding time during an unprecedented and high-stakes peace summit with North Korea, took to his favorite social media site, Twitter, to go after the famed actor, calling him “Low IQ” and “punch-drunk.”
“Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received to many shots to the head by real boxers in movies. I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch-drunk,'” smacked Trump, adding that De Niro fails to “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!” the president finished off the colorful message.
…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!

On Sunday night, the iconic actor yelled, “I’m gonna say one thing: ‘F*** Trump,'” to a room full of like-minded Hollywood elitists at the Tony Awards (#StunningAndBrave). And on Tuesday, hours before Trump’s hard-hitting tweets, De Niro doubled-down on his hollow Trump attacks, apologizing to Canada for Trump’s apparently disgraceful behavior.
“I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president,” said De Niro. “It’s a disgrace. And I apologize to [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G-7. It’s disgusting.”
