Fair is fair.
No one has been more critical of President Trump, especially in areas of what I see as an increasing coarseness and other base aspects of our society.
What was once considered taboo is now the stock of the trade.
There are no shortage of people who disagree with the president.
I often find myself aligned with them.
But there is a right way and a wrong way to do it.
Last night we again were offered a very public display of the wrong way to do it.
And it came from one of my favorite actors.
Legendary film star Robert DeNiro was called on to introduce Bruce Springsteen at Sunday night's Tony Awards. He mentioned how 'The Boss' was able to use his powerful music "not only to rock the house, but also to rock the vote."
In the process, he apparently could not resist twice dropping a couple of F-bombs on President Trump. Thankfully, both of them got bleeped by CBS before they went out on the air.
I slammed Roseanne Barr for her ugly comments. I did the same with Samantha Bee.
I have no issue with a vigorous, passionate debate of the issues.
I have problems with what is becoming our increasing reliance on common vulgarities to get our point across.
Robert DeNiro only pushed the bar a little bit lower last night.
