(Tea Party PAC) – CNN anchor Chris Cuomo lost his ever loving mind on a Trump supporter recently in New York after he called him “Fredo” to his face. As you might imagine, this was immediately twisted into some sort of racial insult by Cuomo, but that’s not the case at all. In fact, Fredo is a derogatory nickname given to Cuomo for a specific reason.
Fredo, if you’re unfamiliar, was a character from The Godfather film series. He was the weaker, less intelligent brother of the Corleone crime family who betrayed them all and ended up assassinated by his brother Michael.
Apparently though, the New York man who approached Cuomo actually thought his first name was “Fredo,” and when he called him that, all hell broke loose.
Gateway Pundit has the details:
“We’re gonna have a f*ckin problem,” Cuomo said to the Trump supporter who asked to take a picture with him.
Cuomo lost his cool and threatened the Trump supporter and told him he was going to throw him “down the f*cking stairs.”
“I’ll f*ckin ruin your shit. I’ll f*ckin throw you down the stairs like a f*ckin punk!” Cuomo said.
The Trump supporter tried to deescalate the situation several times, but Cuomo wanted to fight and continued to threaten the man.
“Take a swing! Take a swing!” Cuomo said getting in the man’s face.
“I’m not gonna swing,” the man said as he tried to calm Cuomo down. “I’ll wreck your shit! I’ll wreck your shit!” Cuomo yelled several times.

Seems like Cuomo better watch that fiery temper of his before it really gets him into serious trouble. This guy seriously lost his mind over this insult, and what’s worse, the guy didn’t even mean to insult him.
Look, if he’s offended by that, too bad. The truth is, the left calls folks on the right far worse names, especially the lovely ladies who represent conservatism on public platforms. It’s a double standard. It’s bad for anyone to insult someone on the left, but totally fine for them to engage in that sort of behavior.
The truth of it is, if we want to be able to move forward with important discussions then we must stop all of the name calling on both sides and treat each other like adults. The very future of our republic is at stake and that’s no small ordeal. If we want a true path of progress where our rights are protected and America’s financial future is improved, that’s going to take at least some measure of cooperation.
It’s hard to have mutual cooperation when people are name calling each other, don’t you think? Time for all of us to grow up a bit and put America and her needs above our desire to vent our frustrations.
