CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo Completely Dominates Trumpster Punks In Verbal Confrontation

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Viral video of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo dominating and intimidating Trumpster "tough guy" who had called Cuomo names.  Nice to see a "liberal"or moderate (which is what Cuomo really is) stand up to the Trumpster big mouths. 

The punk repeatedly backs down as Cuomo intimidates him.

Trump and sons have been trying to belittle Cuomo over this video, but Im not sure why. It shows Cuomo dominating someone who called him a stupid name .

Trump Jr. agrees with you.  He said to take it from him, that's what it means.  Take it from his experience.

Random guys are what collectively make up Trumpism.  His being a "random guy" is completely irrelevant. 

Because the video makes the Trumpers look weak, the "right" has to claim that the alleged insult is the key element of the confrontation. 

Whether Fredo is the worst ethnic slur in the world, or not, the person who called Cuomo the word ( and the guy did not deny he did it) was trying to belittle Cuomo because he perceives Cuomo is an anti Trump liberal.  And the guy got his ass handed to him in the form of a verbal beat down. 

End of story.

It's not a slur. 

You keep glossing over where he equated it to the n-word.  

Imagine if Hannity told a left winger that calling him a mick (which at least is actually racial in nature)  was as bad as calling a black person an n-word. 

The social justice warriors heads would be exploding and I think we can all agree, John's not going to  be here claiming Hannity's "dominating" liberals.

If it's not a slur or a specific insult, why did the guy call Chris Cuomo "Fredo" ? 

He says he watched Cuomo on tv so clearly he knows that Cuomo's name is not Fredo.

Is Fredo the same as the n-word John?  

If I were Fredo, I'd be worried if Andrew offered to take him for a boat ride. Can't embarrass the family like that.

It reminded me of the bar room bully! You know the guy who senses fear in the room and looks to start a fight with a coward, to look tough. There was that soft spoken kid apologizing and the celebrity Cuomo sensing weakness getting in his face. I only wish I was there. I would of had Cuomo's head in a headlock and the only way I'd let go is with Cuomo apologizing to the kid and to Italian Americans, which he has embarrassed!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/08/13/chris-cuomo-fredo-video-threats-cnn/

A profanity-laced video surfaced Monday night showing CNN anchor Chris Cuomo threatening to throw a man down the stairs for calling him “Fredo,” referring to the fictional character Fredo Corleone from “The Godfather” films.

But the core of the backlash centered on one claim from Cuomo: that calling an Italian person “Fredo” was comparable to using the n-word — an assertion that had many Italian Americans scratching their heads and other critics calling Cuomo out of bounds.

“Are any of you Italian?” Cuomo asked the group of men involved in the confrontation. “It’s an insult to your people. ... It’s like the n-word for us.”

On Monday night, CNN also said it stood by the host.

“Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup,” CNN spokesman Matt Dornic  said in a statement on Twitter . “We completely support him.”

President Trump weighed in on the controversy on Tuesday morning, taking digs at both Cuomo and CNN.

“I thought Chris was Fredo also,” the president tweeted to his 63 million followers. “The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings  @CNN

The video, which blew up after being published on a right-wing YouTube channel called “THAT’S THE POINT with Brandon,” captures Cuomo growing agitated and ultimately threatening violence after an unidentified man approaches him and apparently calls him “Fredo.” The host of the channel, Brandon Recor, told The Washington Post that the video was captured at a bar in Shelter Island, N.Y., on Sunday and sent to him by the man in the confrontation, who went up to Cuomo to ask for a picture.

The confrontation appeared to escalate after the man refused to back off from his “Fredo” comment, insisting he didn’t mean to insult Cuomo. The man tells Cuomo mockingly, just after the CNN host compared “Fredo” to the n-word, “You’re a much more reasonable man in person than you seem to be on television.” Cuomo then warns that the two will have “a problem.”

“What are you gonna do about it?” the man asks.

“I’ll f---ing ruin your s---,” Cuomo tells him. “I’ll f---ing throw you down these stairs.”

The man says that Cuomo probably “doesn’t want to do that,” but Cuomo continues by saying, “Take a swing at me. Call me Fredo.”

Cuomo found support in unlikely corners, ranging from rival Fox News host Sean Hannity to onetime White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, while his critics spanned Trump 2020 campaign representatives and other journalists.

Hannity applauded Cuomo , saying the CNN host was the one who “deserves the apology.”  Scaramucci said  he was “very proud” of Cuomo because “this happens all the time” and “it’s quite racist.”

Fredo is a new term to me.  Can someone explain to me why it is considered a slur.  Isn't it the name of one of the brothers in the Godfather movies.

 
 
 
JohnRussell
5.1  seeder  JohnRussell  replied to  Paula Bartholomew @5    2 weeks ago

Fredo was a negative character in the Godfather films, in the sense he was weak and betrayed his family. It is not difficult to see why an Italian would object to being called Fredo. 

Whether it is a wdiespread slur, I dont know, some people say yes and some say no. 

All that matters in this instance though is that Chris Cuomo took it as an insult. 

The guy who said it to him then tries to claim that he thought Fredo was Chris Cuomo's real name. Weak.

I have never called anyone here a racist or white supremacist. I have called white supremacists, Nazi and members of the KKK worthless pieces of garbage. I have called the Presidents comments towards Mexicans and many other minorities "racist". If anyone here took offense at me calling white supremacists worthless trash then they should ask themselves why they would take offense at something targeting very specific vile ideologies.

I do find it strange how often some come to the defense of white supremacists, Nazi's and the KKK. I have seen many rush to the defense of xenophobes, homophobes and Islamophobes which I can only wonder why anyone would be demanding fair treatment on behalf of those kinds of fearful bigots. But I've never called anyone here a racist or white supremacist, I have only ever railed against white supremacy and questioned why anyone would choose to defend such vile prejudiced hate.

You know insults towards other members here isn't allowed.   That said, "Jim Bob" is an insult in line with "Fredo" i suppose.

Still, neither of them are racial slurs remotely equivalent with the N-word.   Not even close.

Como is just being a snowflake.   Don't really blame him in this case though.    Calling people out in public like that is in really poor taste.   Bad juju no matter who is doing it, to whoever.    Especially when in this case he's out with his family.   Shouldn't have snapped like he did though.   He's admitted as much now.

The only people who are going to get all over Cuomo for this are the ones I couldnt care less about to begin with. 

He shut the Trumpster punks down. I'm sure they were surprised. Theyve been told that all the people on tv from the middle or the left are sissies.
