Robert De Niro was especially incensed at Donald Trump's treatment of the press, making reference to the media's role in publishing the Pentagon Papers.
"This f***ing idiot is the president", De Niro said, according to a transcript from New York Times reporter Sopan Deb.
The expletive, known as the F-bomb, was bleeped by the CBS network for millions of television watchers at home. "The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast". "And even more important in these perilous times, you rock the vote, always fighting for, in your own words, Truth, transparency, and integrity in government".

"Boy, do we need that now".
His comments come after a whirlwind few days that saw Trump attend the G-7 summit in Quebec, his first visit to Canada as president. "Who's gonna argue with him?" he said.More news: Winnie Harlow flag gaffe ends Canadian GP two laps early
