Cuomo GOES OFF on Right-Wing Hecklers

CNN anchor, Chris Cuomo goes off on right-wingers, who heckled him while out with his family. John Iadarola breaks it down on The Damage Report. Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: Help build the Home of the Progressives Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: Read more here: "CNN journalist Chris Cuomo was caught on video last weekend exploding at someone who apparently called him “Fredo” in rather colorful language. “Punk-ass bitches from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo says in the video, reportedly filmed on Shelter Island in New York and uploaded to right-wing YouTube channel “That’s the Point with Brandon.” (The video has since been deleted from YouTube, but remains on Twitter.) “My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather. He was a weak brother. And they’re using it as an Italian aspersion.” Pausing to ask if any of the onlookers are Italian, Cuomo adds, “It’s an insult to your fucking people. It’s like the n-word for us.” Then he threatens the man who apparently called him Fredo, saying he’ll “throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk.” Cuomo is right about one thing: Fredo is, indeed, a reference to The Godfather, or more specifically to Fredo Corleone, second son of mob don Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s classic Godfather films." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Wtf I love Chris Cuomo now
I'm sure they deserved every foul word that slapped them across the face. Best part is how quickly he changed his tune.
Anyone wearing a MAGA hat is looking for trouble. Ignore them.

Cuomo was right. The guy was calling him weak. When you call someone weak to their face you should be ready to fight.

Never saw this guy before. Think I`ll call him Fredo.
The same right wingers losing their minds about Chris Cuomo would be ecstatic if Hannity or Tucker Carlson did the same thing, patting him on the back and calling him an "anti PC Hero!"

I do think Chris was a little ott here, and of course, the 'n' word is awful, but freddo isn't the equivalent, it's movie culture at worst. However, having said that, as he was off the clock, out with his wife and little girl, I can see why he reacted adversely, just proves he's human. None of us are perfect and this clip was obviously towards the end of the encounter, it didn't show the beginning, I'm assuming that they were goading him, just looking for trouble.

Doesn't change my opinion of Chris at all.....I like him.

This is sad. I am Italian. No one ever used this term growing up. I was not even aware Fredo was an insult. My cousins name is Fredo (short for Alfredo). This is a direct result of working in a toxic environment like CNN. That place is a serious bubble of hate and manufactured frustration. Sometimes its best to just ignore harmless ignorance. "The more you stir the shit, the worse it stinks."

The whole comment section looks like a right winger anti-Cuomo-campaign...
I'm smaaat, not dumb like people says.. & I was past ovah!
Chris Cuomo just let his New Yorker out of his bag. It’s nothing to see here for me, as a New Yorker. Yet, perspective is always colored by hindsight. I doubt he taped himself. So, yeah. The fix is in.

"Willing to Defend" from words? But not willing to allow for others to defend themselves constitutionally and from the Left wingers

He did say it's like the n word, not that it is as bad as the n word.

I dont think fredo shoudl have pissed him off. cuomo should have gotten upset when he said 'you are a lot more reasonable in person than you are on tv'' lollllololol. zinnnnnnnnng....
N R:
After he insulted all the people by saying "It is illegal to have Wikileaks emails, You hear everything from us, the media", being called Fredo must be an honor for him.

I have new found respect for Hannity. Just for sticking up for him, justa little. OK there I said it, now back to dispensing Hannity.
Just show the hypocrisy of the lefties. They can dish it out but they can't take it. I would also have to wonder if there's not a steroid abuse because of the short temper he has.
For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

He's a NY Italian - this behaviour was incited. The aggressors got what they wanted (a set up)! I got no problem with Chris' reaction. Like asking, how did your "dego?"
Fredo has racisim on the brain
😲 I laughed for a full minute.
Alfredo is the Italian, Spanish and Portuguese form of the English masculine name Ælfræd (Alfred). The name is comprised of the Olde English elements “ælf” meaning 'elf' (one with supernatural powers), and “ræd” which means 'to counsel'.
But even if it was meant to insult him... you're gunna threaten to throw somebody downstairs and beat them up... cmon now.

sam sam:
Good for Chris, bravo! Doesn’t matter reason he used to get in that guys face For being an asshole, right wingers do that all day long. All they do is attack, finally somebody stood up.
The heckler said Chris was reasonable in real life, probably meaning that he didn't expect Chris to stand up for himself like he did.
Eric Turcott
Eric Turcott:
This is nothing compared to what well known conservatives deal with in public. He acted like a screaming child when the other guy was completely calm.

He went gangsta! But this guy probably attacked him in front of his family. Which isn’t too good and Trump is a dumbass! And a bad joke if Trump is trying to make in response to Cuomo. And he’s one of the good one on tv
