Today, CNN’s PR chief Matt Dornic defended his colegue Chris Cuomo sayong that he “defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him” before taking a shot at Don Trump Jr.
But Don Jr. is pretty good at Twitter and quickly sent Dornic back to the executive suite with his tail between his legs.
It sure seems like CNN contributors, some even on Chris Cuomo’s show, have called Don Trump Jr “Fredo” – see the video below that exposes CNN.
We shouldn’t treat people this way – on both sides – but Chris Cuomo has got to have some thicker skin. Don Jr can make fun of himself and he often does – in fact he started out his Twitter feud making fun of the fact that many people have called either him or Eric Fredo.
“No, punk–ss b—-es from the right call me ‘Fredo.’ My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,” Chris Cuomo fired back at a Trump supporter who called him Fredo.
Fredo is a universal slur for the weak brother – not even close to the n-word. But Chris Cuomo wasn’t done throwing away his career, he went on to threaten the guy and was caught on video.
Cuomo is on vacation – CNN says it was planned and they are staying by him but only time will tell if that remains the case.
Fox News also reported that the man, who was described on social media as a “Trump supporter,” repeatedly claimed he thought Cuomo’s name was “Fredo.” The anchor responded by calling him a “liar” and told him to “own what you said” and “stand up like a man.”
Then things quickly escalated when the CNN anchor suggested he would throw him “down these stairs.”
“I don’t want to have a problem with you, man,” the man repeated.
“You’re gonna have a f—in’ problem,” Cuomo said. “I’ll f—in throw you down these stairs like a f—in’ punk.”
The video ends with people attempting to separate the two men.
Don Trump Jr. didn’t miss the opportunity shut down CNN with a reminder of the time they called him “Fredo” on Chris Cuomo’s show.
“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.” Don Jr. posted.
