If you were thinking that Donald Trump would be too busy with his various presidential roles - including meeting the leader of North Korea in recent days - to respond to a movie star's jibe at him, you've obviously not been paying attention.
Robert De Niro earned a standing ovation at the Tony Awards on Sunday night for his 'F**k Trump!' speech, but it clearly rankled with the POTUS, who took to Twitter to admonish the 'Raging Bull' actor.
He described DeNiro as a 'very Low IQ individual' and suggested that he was 'punch-drunk' at the Tonys, before declaring 'Wake up, Punchy!' in another tweet - even though it was clearly his ego which had been bruised.
Our money's on Punchy in this one.
...realize the economy is the best itâ€™s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!

See the rather amusing reaction below:
Wake up punchy is going to be super fucking ironic when trump is watching DeNiro play Bobby Mueller in the inevitable Scorsese biopic of trump’s downfall in his prison cell.

Sunday night: Robert DeNiro channels his inner Taxi Driver and says "Fuck trump!" as a nation of millions applaud.
Two full days later, trumplethinskin digs through his dusty toolbox of *burns* and drools out "Low IQ" and "Punchy."
Score this one a 1st round TKO for DeNiro! pic.twitter.com/Ce6zqVx3yH
