Actor Robert De Niro repeatedly declared "F- Trump" while speaking onstage at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, and promptly received a standing ovation. "I love the Tony Awards", another wrote. He said the play is a rejection of bigotry, shame and oppression.

The Tonys didn't specifically address that, but did touch on gun violence, depression, politics and inclusion.
