CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo threatened to throw a man down the stairs for calling him “Fredo” referring to The Godfather. He claimed that it is an insult to Italian people and went on to say that it is like the “N” word to Italians. He was totally outraged and reacted fast. The video has gone viral.
CNN backed Chris Cuomo for reacting the way he did. A CNN anchor stated, “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup we completely support him.” However, the president did not back him for reacting this way whatsoever.
The President reacted to Chris Cuomo’s video and called him an “out of control animal” because of his rant. He even tweeted about the incident.
The New York Post recently published an article which shows that Chris Cuomo once referred to himself as ‘Fredo’ in a radio interview. He was previously interviewed back in 2010 by Curtis Sliwa on his AM 970 radio show. Sliwa explained that he dubbed the Cuomo family “la Cuomo Nostra.” In the video, Cuomo stated, “Who am I, then, Fredo?”
