Dogsled teams rushed antitoxin serum across the Alaskan wilderness to reach Nome in record time in 1925. They made a trip that normally takes 25 days in less than six and saved the town from a diphtheria epidemic.

The House impeached him for a phone call asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden. But the Senate acquitted him.

But on the Radio City Music Hall stage for the Tony Awards, De Niro offered a simpler call to political action. F__k Trump.

And he got a standing ovation.
