Actor Robert De Niro once again went after President Trump during his speech at the American Icon Awards on Sunday. De Niro was honoring his good friend and fellow actor Al Pacino when he told the audience, "You don't think you completely were going to get away without a f--- Trump moment, did you?"
"The producers of the American Icon Awards call it 'a tribute to individuals who lead America.' Not so fast," De Niro said, pointing out his fellow celebrities do not actually lead the United States. "Maybe they should, but they do fill their own essential roles."
"On the other hand, the individual who currently purports to lead America is not worthy of any tribute. Unless you think of his impeachment and imprisonment as a sort of tribute. And that's how you can 'Make America Great Again,'" De Niro said to a mix of applause and boos.
De Niro has a long history of using his time during speeches at award ceremonies and events to bash Trump.
"I’m happy to stand with Samantha Bee tonight to support the First Amendment — the right of the president to be a relentless and unrepentant, lying scumbag, the right of his supporters to not give a shit, and our right to do something about it," De Niro said during the Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in April.
