Can you imagine if Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlson threatened to physically assault a Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren supporter? It would be the end of their careers. Chris Cuomo will get a pass for attacking a Trump supporter, because he is a Leftist who works for CNN.
I had to laugh when Cuomo screamed that “Fredo” is the “N-word for Italians.” That’s his default slur for anyone with whom he disagrees. When he interviewed me, he said that drawing Muhammad was like using the N-word. Everything is racism.
Watch the video. He is nuts.
By Jon Brown, Washington Examiner, August 12, 2019:
Video emerged Monday that depicts CNN anchor Chris Cuomo in a heated argument with someone who claims to be a Trump supporter, who apparently called him “Fredo” while asking for a photo.
The YouTube video claims to be “Footage sent in by a [That’s The Point with Brandon] fan,” and goes on to explain that “a fan of news went to ask Chris Cuomo for a photo, mind you the man who asked him DID NOT know his real name and knows of him only through The RUSH LIMBUAGH SHOW [sic] and on that show Rush repeatedly calls him ‘FREDO’ so the man legitimately thought his name was FREDO. At this point CHRIS CUOMO LOSES IT AND THREATENS THE MAN WITH VIOLENCE!”
“Punk-ass b–ches on the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo says, and goes on to explain why he finds that name offensive.

Does CNN’s head of PR still think “Fredo” is an ethnic slur after watching this? Because if it’s the N word for Italians like @ChrisCuomo says, I don’t understand why Chris seems so at ease with someone saying it here. An excuse just as fake as his news. #FredoCuomo https://t.co/8G8yuY80CK pic.twitter.com/1gwVyDVCob

AP: CNN says it completely supports anchor Chris Cuomo after he was seen on video threatening to push a man down some stairs during a confrontation after the man apparently called him “Fredo,” in a seeming reference to the “Godfather” movies.
The video appeared Monday on a conservative YouTube channel. Host Brandon Recor told The Washington Post the exchange happened Sunday at a bar in Shelter Island, New York, after a man approached Cuomo for a picture. The man made the video.
It doesn’t show the “Fredo” reference but depicts Cuomo’s profanity-laced reaction as he characterizes the comment as an anti-Italian slur. The man says he thought “Fredo” was Cuomo’s name.
