Mario Cuomo’s younger, and dumber, son Chris has inadvertently tagged himself with a new name, from PJ Media :
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo went ballistic over the weekend, spewing profanities and threatening throw a man down the stairs after he called him “Fredo.”
“I’ll f*cking ruin your sh*t! I’ll f*cking throw you down these stairs like a f*cking punk!” Cuomo bellowed.
As anyone who has watched The Godfather knows, “Fredo” is a slur that is often used to insult someone as the weakest member of a family or the black sheep who constantly screws up. In the classic 1972 film, Fredo Corleone was Michael’s dim older brother, who was considered to be the failure of the family.
In Fredo’s own personal universe Fredo might, or might not, be offensive, but in the realm of Cuomo’s own cable program the word Fredo is totally not offensive, from Twittter .
If Cuomo deems the word Fredo acceptable for Ana Navarro to use on his prime time cable show, albeit little viewed, I am sure he find the word acceptable here.
Moreover, given Fredo’s hot temper, might it be appropriate to use his older brother’s, Governor Andy, brand new red flag law. Would not want Fredo to do a Jeffery Epstein.
