Legendary actor Robert De Niro has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, and he continued to rail on the commander-in-chief Tuesday night, calling him the "jerk-off-in-chief."

Robert De Niro, for instance, has repeatedly criticized the "bullsh*t artist" president, whose victory in 2016 he compared to 9/11.

His harsh words - including "j--off in chief" and "f--ing fool", came during De Niro's speech introducing actress Meryl Streep, who plays the late Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham in Steven Spielberg's newspaper drama "The Post", which took home the award for best picture.
