Meanwhile in the press room, Tony winners were surprised and amused by De Niro's comments, including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child director John Tiffany, who entered the press room immediately after the incident.

As Ruhle talked to Elise Jordan and Mark Thompson about this, she said that "I understand the frustration and outrage around the president".

The comment was such a hit with the awards show attendees that the actor then repeated the message again.

Tony Awards recognises excellence in live Broadway theatre. Two expletives earned him a standing ovation and a shower of admiration from the liberal crowd. "Fuck Trump. It's no longer down with Trump".

The actor urged the audience to vote during mid-term elections in November.

And the more level-headed commenters pointed out the ultimate hollowness of De Niro's habitual statement.

"It ain't over till it's over", he told us at that event, when asked about news including Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation of the president. "The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast".

"Boy, do we need that now".
