Does CNN’s head of PR still think “Fredo” is an ethnic slur after watching this? Because if it’s the N word for Italians like @ChrisCuomo says, I don’t understand why Chris seems so at ease with someone saying it here. An excuse just as fake as his news. #FredoCuomo https://t.co/8G8yuY80CK pic.twitter.com/1gwVyDVCob— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) August 13, 2019
Cuomo was well within his rights to tell the man off. Threatening violence over this was a huge overreaction, a childish effort to intimidate a nobody, and the N-word equivalency was an even worse overreaction. Why not just call the man an a*****e and an idiot and move on? Cuomo was the only one with something to lose in that situation, and he let himself get baited into a viral-video moment that makes him look like a hothead who leaves himself vulnerable.
