Trump Mocks Chris Cuomo as ‘Fredo’ at United Nations

President Trump on Monday repeatedly mocked CNN host Chris Cuomo as ‘Fredo’ to a group of reporters at the United Nations.

‘Fredo’ is a reference to Fredo Corleone, the fictional weaker brother in ‘The Godfather’ movie, a man who doesn’t get much respect from his father or anyone else in the family.

The CNN anchor claimed comparisons to the mafia movie are equivalent to a racial slur.

Of course, it’s not a racial slur, but Cuomo likes to compare criticism of himself and his professional field to using the N-word. He has previously likened the term ‘fake news’ to the N-word as well.

And yet, Cuomo failed to take exception when a guest on his show compared Donald Trump Jr. to ‘Fredo.’

 

Gianni Russo, who played Carlo Rizzi in the movie, mocked Cuomo for making such a racial comparison, adding that his father, the late New York governor Mario Cuomo, “would smack him.”
