Hannity Defends Chris Cuomo After He's Filmed Threatening Heckler Over 'F*cking Insult'

Chris Cuomo, a host on CNN, got in a guy's face earlier this week after the guy called him Fredo.

Sure, we, as Italians, have a sense of loyalty to our family, but that doesn't mean that being called Fredo is a racial slur meant to degrade an entire race of human beings with an incredibly painful history behind it (as is the case with the N-word).

"Well I think Chris Cuomo was so out of control that I would not have wanted to see a weapon in his hand", Trump said, then appeared to criticize Cuomo for not punching the man who accosted him, saying "I guess his fist is not a weapon, or he would have done something, you know he talked about it but he didn't do anything".

"Punk ass bitches from the right call me Fredo", Cuomo can be seen telling one of the men he was with in the sideways, covertly filmed video.

"I think that what Chris Cuomo did was terrible". "Fredo is a term from The Godfather, referring to the dumb brother". It's a [expletive] insult to your people. "Don't f***ing insult me like that!" Clearly, the same can not be said for the actual N-word and Black people. The man told bystanders that he thought "Fredo" was Cuomo's name.

"You're going to have a [expletive] problem", Cuomo responds.

"I'll f-ing throw you down these stairs", Cuomo said. A profanity-filled video captures Cuomo arguing with the individual before both men were separated.

"So you can f***ing sue?"

"Who am I, then, Fredo?". It's like I called you a punk b***h.

The radioactivity levels involved are "absolutely not comparable with those during serious accidents at reactors", he added. However, the radiation level started decreasing by 12:30 pm and returned to normal levels at around 2 pm, Rosatom said.

"I thought Chris was Fredo also", the president tweeted Tuesday morning. Don't f--ing insult me like that. Eventually, a third person broke the two men up while another voice says, "Look at all these cameras".

CNN's Chris Cuomo Threatening Trump Supporter with Violence!

A CNN spokesperson told me, "Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup".

"As much as Italians have suffered and suffered greatly, African Americans and Jews have had to deal with things we have not had to deal with", Mr Tamburri said, citing the "tragedy of slavery" and "the tragedy of genocide".

President Trump didn't take long to take a side. Rather, I think this is nearly Trump level trolling and, of course, the president is on the case.

"The truth hurts", Trump added.

CNN is standing behind the 49-year-old host. Cuomo viewed that as an epithet directed at his italian heritage.

Cuomo got some support, including from Fox News rival Sean Hannity, who tweeted Cuomo deserved an apology, and former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who said such comments happen "all the time" and they are "quite racist".
