    Having worked in Washington, DC., since 2001, I’ve seen some really stupid things. Not just things done by me and my friends, but by those in power, those in so-called “respectable” positions. Nothing I’ve seen (or done) comes close to what we’ve all witnessed since the election of Donald Trump.There were always people, usually on the left, who casually tossed around Hitler analogies, but they were quickly shutdown or dismissed as kooks. Godwin’s Law, which is “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one,” held most people in check. Comparisons to...

    RUSH: Since there are an increasing number of people tuning into this program each and every day, my good friends, we’ll take the opportunity of this occasion to explain something once and for all since, as I mentioned, the entertainment tabloid TV shows decided to do exhaustive in-depth investigations into just where this nickname “Fredo” came from. don’t blame them. They’re watching this happen all day yesterday. Where did this come from? The Drive-Bys are not reporting it. In fact, the best story on this so far that gets it exactly right, unsurprisingly, is the Fox News website. And we’ll...
  • Poor, Pitiful Cuomo: Even Liberals at Vox Proclaim 'Fredo' Is Not an Ethnic Slur

    Although Chris Cuomo and his employer, CNN, insist that calling someone 'Fredo' is an ethnic slur on a par with the n-word, even Vox takes exception to such a comparison. On Tuesday,  Vox culture staff writer Alissa Wilkinson weighed in on this topic and came down very definitely on the side of no ethnic slur represented by "Fredo."  The very title of her article reveals what she thinks about this controversy: "CNN’s Chris Cuomo said 'Fredo' is like 'the n-word' for Italians. It’s … not."

    CNN came to the defense of anchor Chris Cuomo on Monday night after he erupted at a stranger who called him "Fredo," declaring it to be an ethnic slur on par with the "N-word" against Italian-Americans. Fredo is a fictional character from The Godfather series who is portrayed as the weakest and least intelligent of the Corleone crime family's brothers. The controversy began when a man approached Cuomo in public and called him "Fredo." Cuomo reacted by cursing at the man and stated that calling an Italian "Fredo" is tantamount to calling a black person a "n—er." "No, punk-ass b—es...

    Cuomo threatened to throw troll who called him 'Fredo' down a flight of stairs CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, under fire for threatening to throw a man down a staircase after being insulted in public, referred to a congressman's threat of a reporter in 2014 as a "bizarre outburst" and the "worst" behavior from a lawmaker. Then the host of the morning show New Day, Cuomo criticized the conduct of then-Rep. Michael Grimm (R., N.Y.) when the embattled lawmaker threatened to throw NY1 reporter Michael Scotto off a "f—ing balcony" in the Capitol and break him "in half like a boy."...

    It was an opportunity the Trump reelection campaign couldn’t refuse. President Trump’s 2020 campaign wasted no time Tuesday in selling “Fredo Unhinged” T-shirts to piggyback on the controversy over CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s unhinged viral video rant. For $34, Trump supporters can get a T-shirt with unflattering screen grabs of the host from the video where he rages against a man who called the anchor “Fredo.” “CNN’s Chris Cuomo is Fredo!” the Trump campaign shop says of the “limited edition” T-shirt that went live at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday. “The truth hurts. He totally lost it. Help us annoy Chris Cuomo...

Yet they claim I’m responsible for the El Paso shooter and I’m responsible for all of the lack of gun control. I’m the guy that’s gonna prevent Washington from doing it.

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who was captured on a viral video getting into a profanity-laced exchange with a person who called him “Fredo,” once referred to himself as the hapless “The Godfather” character in a radio interview. Cuomo was interviewed by Curtis Sliwa on his AM 970 radio show in January 2010 about whether his brother Andrew might seek the Democratic nomination for governor. Sliwa said he dubbed the Cuomo family “la Cuomo Nostra.” “There is a group of people — politicos — who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members...

    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 two 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.

    President Trump mocked CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Tuesday in response to a viral video in which the “Cuomo Prime Time” host threatened a man who apparently had called him "Fredo." A video of the confrontation, which originally surfaced on the YouTube channel "That's The Point with Brandon” and was circulated by Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra, begins with the man telling Cuomo, "I thought that was who you were." The CNN host clearly didn’t appreciate the comment and the clip quickly became a trending topic on social media. Fredo is a reference to Fredo Corleone, the weak and facile brother...
