Donald Trump Renews ‘Fredo’ Attack On CNN’s Chris Cuomo , “Punk-ass bitches from the right call me Fredo,” said Cuomo, who is of Italian descent, in the clip that went viral.
President Donald Trump on Monday launched a fresh attack against Chris Cuomo, He is Fake News, will always be Fredo to us. I should release some of his dishonest interviews? Coupled with bad ratings, he’d be out! https://twitter.com/breitbartnews/status/1211767146637930500 …
Trump has criticized Cuomo, who has reported critically on the White House, many times. In particular, he has repeatedly called Cuomo “Fredo” ― a reference to the Fredo Corleone character from “The Godfather” films. (The insult is also frequently leveled at Donald Trump Jr.)
I love New York, but New York can never be great again under the current leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo (the brother of Fredo), or Mayor Bill DeBlasio. Cuomo has weaponized the prosecutors to do his dirty work (and to keep him out of jams), a reason some don’t want to be…
Both Commiecast MSNBC & Fake News CNN are watching their Ratings TANK. Fredo on CNN is dying. Don’t know why @FoxNews wants to be more like them? They’ll all die together as other outlets take their place. Only pro Trump Fox shows do well. Rest are nothing. How’s Shep doing?
“I thought Chris was Fredo also,” Trump tweeted in August after footage emerged of the CNN host facing off with a man who’d called him the term.
“You’re going to have a big fucking problem,” he added. “Don’t fucking insult me like that. You fucking called me Fredo. It’s like I call you punk bitch ― you like that?” Cuomo also said the term was similar to “the ‘N-word’” for Italians.
Cuomo later apologized. “No need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose,” he tweeted at the time.
