Was Robert De Niro Kavanaugh joke after SCOTUS confirmation a cheap shot
De Niro was receiving the Brass Ring Award Saturday evening at the Children’s Diabetes Foundation’s Carousel of Hope event in L.A., when, for whatever reason, he decided to wade into politics with a quip about the newly appointed Justice Kavanaugh. It mostly landed flat.
Seemingly out of nowhere, he goes … “Now, one reminder. The drinks, wine and beer are flowing. But, be careful — if you have too much, you may end up on the Supreme Court.”
Besides the fact that he butchered the delivery of the line — stumbling over his words — it’s clear he chose the wrong topic to bring up at a ceremony for the Children’s Diabetes Foundation. The reactions to his joke were mixed, some nervously laughing … others booing.
