After ‘f–k Trump’ barb, De Niro apologizes in Toronto for ‘the idiotic behaviour of my president’

Robert De Niro, fresh off the Tony Awards stage where he verbally attacked the U.S. president, is now apologizing for Donald Trump’s behaviour following the G7 summit.

De Niro, speaking Monday in downtown Toronto where he’s launching a major development alongside celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa, called Trump’s behaviour “a disgrace.”

“I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president,” De Niro said, winning big cheers from the dozens who turned up for the groundbreaking ceremony.

Following the G7 summit in Quebec last week, Trump lashed out on Twitter, accusing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of being “very dishonest” and “weak.” 

“I apologize to Justin Trudeau and the other people at the G7,” De Niro told the crowd.

Toronto Mayor John Tory, speaking moments later, addressed De Niro’s remarks, saying only: “Thank you.”

De Niro, a staunch Trump opponent, had a bigger stage to lash out at: Sunday night’s Tony Awards in New York City.

De Niro dropped a couple of F-bombs before raising his arms and encouraging the crowd to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

“First, I wanna say, ‘f–k Trump,'” De Niro said. “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘f–k Trump.'”

The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead of De Niro’s comments, The Associated Press reported.

Condos going for $ 1.4M

The Hollywood icon, Matsuhisa and film producer Meir Teper are in Toronto promoting what they’re calling the “world’s first” complex to feature a Nobu restaurant, hotel and residences.

The Toronto facility will be built at 15 Mercer St., near King Street West and Blue Jays way, in the city’s downtown core.

Condo units in the building, which is still in the pre-construction phase, are selling for some $ 1.4 million each for 888 square feet, according to the local real estate tracking website BuzzBuzzHome.
