Chris Cuomo better not support “Red Flag” laws
Anyone viewing the video clip must conclude that CNN’s Chris Cuomo would most certainly be subject to “Red Flag” laws if passed. Talk about insane over reaction. He got more aggressive the more apologetic the supposed heckler got — a sign of a pathological type. Check it out (various sources).
If ever enacted, “Red Flag” laws prohibiting gun ownership by persons deemed mentally or emotionally unstable would ensnare a number of leftist and liberal ‘celebrities’, including US senators (delusional Corey Booker for one) and cable TV personalities (Cuomo).
In Cuomo’s case, even without “Red Flag” law, most rational Americans would not want to see a guy with this kind of temperament armed with anything more lethal than a plastic butter knife. More comment below excerpt. DLH
CNN’s Chris Cuomo Filmed Erupting at Heckler Who Called Him ‘Fredo’: ‘I’ll F*cking Ruin Your Sh*t’
By Josh Feldman Mediaite
CNN’s Chris Cuomo erupted at a man in public who apparently called him “Fredo,” in a wild moment caught on video that went viral Monday night.
The encounter between Cuomo and the man happened at a Shelter Island bar — that appears to be Sunset Beach — on Sunday. The video, surreptitiously filmed by the man Cuomo was shouting at, was uploaded to Twitter by a user who said he was sent the clip.
“Punk-ass bitches from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo told the man, who claimed he thought the CNN anchor was named Fredo. “My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather.”
“They use it as an Italian aspersion. Any of you Italian?” Cuomo continued. “It’s an insult to your fucking people. It’s like the N-word for us.”
They went back and forth, and at one point Cuomo said, “I’ll fucking ruin your shit. I’ll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk.”
A CNN spokesperson told Mediaite in a statement, “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”
Cuomo is receiving support from outside CNN as well. His 9 p.m. rival at Fox News, Sean Hannity, tweeted “good for [Cuomo]” in response to the video. “He’s out with his 9 year old daughter, and his wife, and this guy is being a jackass in front of his family,” Hannity wrote. “Imho Chris Cuomo has zero to apologize for. He deserves the apology.”
Cuomo is off air this week, but he will return on Monday. CNN told Mediaite his vacation was pre-planned.
This editor is thinking either we missed something or Hannity’s comment is strange. Cuomo is way over the top. Is the level of Cuomo’s reaction what Hannity would do if someone cat-called: Hey “Paddy” or “Mick” or “Whitey”. R Mall
