Skip to comments.CNNís Chris Cuomo explodes in profanity-laden rant over his nickname, threatens violence

Obviously, the stranger who called Chris Cuomo Fredo touched a very sensitive nerve in the anchor for the third-rated cable news operation. As the son and brother of 2 governors of New York, Chris may feel himself an underachiever, perhaps occupying his position of prominence solely on the basis of his family ties. That could explain the vehemence, verbal thuggery, and victimology of the unhinged rant that followed.

In case you are not able to listen to the vile language where you are reading this, here are some narrated excerpts, courtesy of the Washington Examiner:
"Punk-ass b--ches on the right call me Fredo," Cuomo says, and goes on to explain why he finds that name offensive.
"Fredo was from The Godfather," Cuomo said. "He was a weak brother. And they use it as an Italian aspersion. Are any of you Italian? Are you Italian? It's a f--king insult to your people. It's an insult to your f--king people." He then claimed that "Fredo" is the N-word to Italians. "Is that a cool f--king thing?"
The other man in the video then mockingly tells Cuomo that he is "a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television," to which Cuomo responds, "If you want to play, we'll f--king play."
After further back-and-forth, Cuomo said, "You're gonna have a f--king problem. It's a little different on TV. Don't f--king insult me like that. You called me Fredo, like I call you 'punk b--ch.'"
Taking off his glasses, the other man says, "I don't have a problem, man," but then Cuomo reiterates that he is going to, and then threatens to "ruin your sh-t" and "f--king throw you down these stairs _________________________________________________

Keep it classy, Dems.
He’s assured his new moniker with ME!!!
It appears that Fredo made a Terroristic Threat in public.
Fredo went on vacay immediately after he shot off his foul punk Fredo mouth.
Does Chris have a younger brother? You know what happened to Fredo in Godfather II.
Does NY have a Red Flag law???
Any time the punk-ass b--ch Fredo Cuomo wants to step outside, I'm ready...
A good set up. Fredo would not have been so mouthy had it not been for the other Fredos backing him.
IF you notice, the perp took his glasses off as Fredo got heated.....getting ready for the fur to fly if the opportunity was there.
I just mentioned this a couple of days ago but the beat generation poet Michael McClure had the idea of all caps and profanity in a line or two of his poems, to shock. Then more profanity and more words in all caps. Finally page after page had only those and there was no shock.
Norman Vincent Peale was confronted by a man who swore with every dirty word and vulgar expression he could. Peale calmly said:”Pretty good job. That was good but you forgot some words I’ve heard. Go ahead and finish.” He mumbled a little and looked embarrassed and then rushed away.
Dems won’t have anything but “racist” and “I hate Trump” along with swear words soon.
Well, Fredo you have earned your name that will follow you the rest of your life and you have a dirty mouth, yo Mom should wash it out with soap!
Fredo should of just walked away or smiled, thank the guy and move on. Lefties can dish it out, but cant take it. Fredo has more to lose than the guy who called him out. On second thought probably not, but our side will have fun with this for a long time!
Chris Cuomo is obviously taking some ... shall we say “supplements” to go along with his workout regimen.
I’m impressed with the guy who confronted him. Most political trolls blow their chance by talking too much, sounding nervous and saying stupid stuff. This guy remained calm and held his own and let Cuomo do all the talking. He gets an A+ from someone who used to be paid to do this kind of thing.
This story exploded yesterday... on the late John Cazale’s birthday. Go figure.
Amazing how Dems are more insulted as part of a group than personally. Frankly Ill take the group insult.
And is t the proper bad word for Italians like dago or something? Which I never knew until I watched a movie when I was maybe 22.
I’d bet the kitchen sink that Cuomo laughed his a** off when he was first called the name. And I bet his best buds call him that on occasion.
