President Donald Trump's, 71, approval ratings may be creeping up these days, but he's still the most hated man on Broadway! "I'm just so thankful to Orin Wolf for being courageous for telling a small story about Arabs and Israelis getting along in a time when we need that more than ever".

The Tonys were being broadcast live on CBS in the USA, with censors managing to bleep the actor's profane message. The crowd responded with thunderous applause and a standing ovation.
