Robert De Niro isn't done "talkin' to" U.S. President Donald Trump.

A noted liberal, he has been critical of President Trump, a Republican, at other show business events, but none with the high profile and reach of the Tony Awards, which salute performances in Broadway theater.

Robert De Niro took the stage at Radio City Music Hall for the 72nd annual Tony Awards Sunday night, but CBS completely bleeped out his first words. "Larry Kudlow looked like he was drunk yesterday morning on CNN, saying that Trudeau stabbed Trump in the back", De Niro said.

Trump and Trudeau have been engaged in a war of words over trade since the weekend's Group of Seven economic summit.

Trump's spate of Twitter tirades has seen a number of political leaders rally around Trudeau, including Conservative leader Andrew Scheer and incoming Ontario premier Doug Ford.

"Nobody's talking to you anymore", Gutfeld said on De Niro, paraphrasing one of the actor's most famous lines.

The two-time Academy Award-winner was in Toronto Monday to promote Nobu Residences, his restaurant, hotel and condo project in conjunction with top chef Nobu Matsuhisha.

Meryl Streep also took aim at Trump in a now-famous speech at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, calling him out for his mocking of a disabled reporter during the 2016 campaign.

The crowd's reaction was a standing ovation.

In March, he called the president an "idiot" who "lacks any sense of humanity or compassion", People reported. "It's "The Emperor's New Clothes" - the guy is a f***ing fool ... our baby-in-chief - the "J******-in-chief" I call him". But, not surprisingly, the Twitterverse blew up with people curious about what De Niro had uttered. Garfield dedicated the win to the LGBTQ community, who he said fought and died for the right to love. "I have avoided so many events with them because for so many years of my life I pretended I was not a Middle Eastern person", he said.
