Cuomo is typical of leftists, who had his feelings hurt and just couldn't stand to be called Fredo. Liberals are easily triggered and that is on full display in the video made during the incident.

Cuomo is one of the reason why CNN is tanking.

'Fredo' was the weak, mentally slow brother of Michael in the 'Godfather' movies. Since Michael had no intention of dying, Fredo had to go. Fredo broke Michael's heart. He tells him that in Havana after he realizes that Fredo lied about knowing Johnny Ola. He understood that Fredo had fingered him for the hit at his home, endangering him, his wife and his children.

Well Coumo, if the shoe fits...

Wasn't it him or his brother that suggested that the Covington Kids should have backed away from the Indian that approached them, pounding on a drum? And then he does this?

Yeah, what would Cuomo do if a Trump supporter pounded a drum in his face? Probably start smacking him with a tire iron.

Chris Cuomo says "Fredo" is an ethnic slur
Chris Cuomo once referred to himself as ‘Fredo’ in radio interview

Quote:
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 of la Cuomo.”

“Who am I, then, Fredo?” Cuomo asked in response.

“Yes, exactly,” Sliwa said. “So you better be careful that your brother Andrew doesn’t kiss you on both cheeks and then all of a sudden they take you out on the middle of the lake and where’s Chris?”

“He kisses me plenty because he’s a great big brother,” Cuomo said.

Comparing Chris Cuomo to Fredo is an insult to Fredo.

The Memes coming out about this are hilarious, oh my goodness.

Cuomo will FOREVER be known as "Fredo".
