Yesterday, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who is also the brother of NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, was caught on video in a not so flattering light.
The judgmental, far-left CNN anchor, who despises Trump and frequently criticizes him for his unpresidential behavior, got caught up in an incredible confrontation with a Trump supporter on video—and within minutes of its release, it went viral.
In the video, Cuomo can be seen confronting a man who allegedly called him, “Fredo,” the “weak brother” from “The Godfather” movie. After Cuomo identified himself as an anchor on CNN, he explained why he was offended by the term, saying, “they use it as an Italian aspersion.” Cuomo asked the men in the video, “Are any of you Italian?” he asked. “It’s a f*cking insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f*cking people!”
Cuomo then goes on to compare the word “Fredo” to the “N-word.”
.@CNN any comments on this?

President Trump called Cuomo an, “out of control animal,” saying that no one should defend his behavior.

Conservative Trump supporter, Antoine Tucker had a few choice words for CNN’s Chris Cuomo and his comparison of “Fredo,” the younger son in the Godfather movie, to the “N-word.”

The best tweet of all came from Donald Trump Jr., who posted a compilation of CNN guests calling others, including Donald Trump Jr., “Fredo.”
WOW, shocked at all the @CNN anchors & commentators who used the “racist” term “Fredo” to attack me!
Will CNN fire them for using a term that @CNNPR deemed an “ethnic slur” & @ChrisCuomo described as the same as the N word? Or is CNN ok with racist language on their network? pic.twitter.com/cyzgQ07U4s

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign is wasting no time capitalizing on the CNN “Fredo” craze. For only $34, you can get a “Fredo” t-shirt on the Trump campaign website, that according to campaign manager Brad Parscale, was inspired by the “epic and historic viral video of CNN’s Chris Cuomo.”
