President Trump struck back at Robert De Niro this Tuesday, nicknaming him “Punchy” while suggesting that the legendary actor has a “very Low IQ individual.”
…realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!

“Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received to many shots to the head by real boxers in movies. I watched him last night and truly believe he may be ‘punch-drunk,'” Trump wrote Tuesday.
“I guess he doesn’t realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!”
The president’s tweet followed days after De Niro declared, “f— Trump” while appearing onstage at Sunday’s Tony Awards.
“I’m going to say one thing: ‘F— Trump,’” De Niro, one of Trump’s most outspoken critics in hollywood critics, explained to the audience while presenting an award.
“It’s no longer ‘down with Trump,’ it’s ‘f— Trump,’ ” the 74-year-old performer — who won an Academy Award for portraying infamous boxer Jake La Motta in 1980’s “Raging Bull” — said.
Americans stood with De Niro through the onslaught:
The president is a snowflake.

It’s been over a year! What should be obvious and simple to understand! Donald Trump and his family are unable to make the transformation from a life of entitlement to a life of public service! The two worlds are drastically different and the attempt to combine them is failing!

..Hey, Mr. High IQ, it's "too" not to. There are too many errors to point out but I'm certain you know what they are. You know, with your high IQ and all. The economy is continuing to grow as it did under Obama and name those companies. Spanky.

You’re the one who’s “punch drunk” asshole! Mr. DeNiro calls it as he sees it! You always put people down who don’t think you’re a president. Which you’re not! As far as his IQ goes he’s got more intelligence in his little than you do in your whole fat body!!!!!
