President Donald Trump may have committed treason, but Robert De Niro said f*ck on television (again). So the crowd that defended the reality-TV star turned national nightmare’s right to say “Grab ‘em by the pussy” are pretty riled up. After all, think of the children (who were watching CNN on Sunday morning)!
Here’s what De Niro said.

Here’s how Twitter reacted.
disgraceful that they allowed the interview to continue. Like him or hate him, he is still the President of the US.— Lon Ryan (@LonRyan) September 29, 2019
It's kind of embarrassing when your grandparents start in with the potty mouth. They are supposed to be the people in our lives we look to for wisdom. Sadly De Niro's mental decline is getting the best of him. He's losing his vocabulary.— Keep Looking Up (@KeepLookingUp6) September 29, 2019

Conservatives: Political correctness is over! We can say whatever the fuck we want.— Denizcan James (@MrFilmkritik) September 29, 2019
Robert De Niro: Fuck Donald Trump and fuck Fox News.
Conservatives: No, not like that
…and the academy goes to Mr DeNiro for most dramatic truth telling pic.twitter.com/PPcHv5XmLf— Asalee Robinson (@asaleepoet) September 29, 2019

Robert De Niro is my Sunday morning mood. And Monday through Saturday too. https://t.co/W1ySDyN0RZ— Ava DuVernay (@ava) September 29, 2019
I like De Niro's CNN statement for many reasons, and yes, his pithy intonation on "fuck 'em" is tasty, but what's best is how shrugging and offhand he is: he's not pretending there's anything daring or subversive about his words, as opposed to something obvious that needs saying.— Guy Lodge (@GuyLodge) September 29, 2019
You invite Robert De Niro on your show, you get Robert De Niro https://t.co/AwYPJs3X7W— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) September 29, 2019
Y'all, it's really this simple: if you think Robert De Niro saying "fuck 'em" in response to fascists is more profane than literal fascists undermining the integrity of our constitutional framework, you don't understand profanity.— Charlotte Clymer🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) September 29, 2019
