Springsteen then took the stage to perform a soulful rendition of "My Hometown".
The Tony Awards crowd proved a perfectly suitable liberal environment for a fresh statement, featuring for example, the outspoken anti-Trump survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.
In his remarks, Mr. De Niro echoed his anger at Mr. Trump - but this time, with a G rating.
While the CBS broadcast censors managed to stop the F-bomb from going out to people at home, some were given the full brunt of De Niro's political commentary.
Before doing that, De Niro chose to open with a message for President Donald Trump, who will soon meet with Kim Jon Ung.
As Ruhle talked to Elise Jordan and Mark Thompson about this, she said that "I understand the frustration and outrage around the president".
While CBS was quick to catch the swear for USA audiences, the word wasn't censored during the Australian broadcast.
The gathered crowd seemed to agree with his message with applause, whoops and a standing ovation coming from the audience.
It marked the second time in 24 hours that the academy award-winning actor had lashed out at the US president.
The Los Angeles native went to Instagram Monday (June 11) to share footage of De Niro getting at Trump. There is a battle being waged for direction and the future of this nation-a battle between good and evil-and we need to pray. "When you see celebrities say I hope the economy bottoms out to get rid of Trump, I think that helps Trump".
