CNN anchor Chris “Fredo” Cuomo went off the deep end in a spittle-specked rage and threatened to beat a man up who dared to call Cuomo “Fredo” at an event in New York.
The video, which appeared Monday evening, shows CNN’s Cuomo in a serious meltdown at a man who called Cuomo “Fredo.” The name is, of course, a reference to The Godfather mobster movies, but it is also a nickname used by Breitbart’s John Nolte and conservative radio host Chris Plante use to describe the second dumbest anchor on CNN (Don Lemon being the reigning champ in that category).
“No. Punk ass bitches on the right call me Fredo. My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,” Cuomo said to the man in the video. “Fredo is from The Godfather. He was the weak brother.”

Cuomo bawled on saying, “Fredo” is equivalent to the “N-word” to Italians.
The man reacted to Cuomo’s explosion by joking, “You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television.”
“If you want to play, then we’ll fucking play,” Cuomo replied, hurling a series of insults at the man and referring to him as a “punk bitch.”
“You know my name is not fucking Fredo,” he said, “own what you said.”
“I’ll fucking ruin your shit,” Cuomo blathered. “I’ll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk.”
“Please do,” the man shot back.
“So you can fucking sue?” Cuomo returned and then goaded the man to punch him.
What a thin-skinned little punk.
