Donald Trump taunted Robert de Niro over the actor’s F-U remark at the Tony Awards fueling the story for another news cycle

Hell, we're certain that Trump couldn't give a crap about having ideal grammar and it should be noted that De Niro did take the first verbal shot in their recent war of words, but if you're ever going to have a pop at someone's intelligence, make sure that you get it right on your own end.

Trump then went on to brag about the economy in a follow up tweet, adding a final jibe: "Wake Up Punchy!"
