Which was more political, the Tony's or Grammy's?

“I’m just going to say one thing,” De Niro said, wearing a scowl worthy of Jimmy Conway in GoodFellas: “F-ck Trump!” When the astonished audience broke out into a mix of laughter and gasps, he paused for a few seconds and then followed with, “It’s no longer ‘down with Trump.’ It’s ‘f-ck Trump!'” He then pumped both fists, Jake LaMotta-style. Many people in the crowd at Radio City Music Hall, having been thrown a piece of red meat toward the end of the three-hour show, jumped to their feet.

A CBS spokesperson issued a brief statement tonight: “Mr. De Niro’s comments were unscripted and unexpected. The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast.”
