FIGURES. CNN Spox: “We Completely Support” Cuomo’s Profanity-Laced Threats Toward Trump Supporter
This is CNN.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo exploded after a Trump supporter in New York called him “Fredo” to his face — Fredo, a nickname that is meant to be an insult to Cuomo, is from the movie The Godfather to describe him as the weaker, less intelligent brother in the Corleone crime family.
“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.
Donald Trump Jr. jumped into the fray Monday night and said of the video of Cuomo circulating on Twitter, “I assume CNN not available for comment. Imagine their coverage of this if they were a real news organization?”
CNN backed Cuomo claiming he was merely defending himself against an “ethnic slur,” referring to the “Fredo” nickname.
CNN’s spox Matt Dornic responded to Don Jr and said CNN completely supports Cuomo following his profanity-laced threats toward a Trump supporter.
“Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him,” CNN spox Matt Dornic said on Twitter.
