President Trump has joined in the fun of mocking embattled CNN anchor Chris Cuomo..
President Trump ripped CNN’s Chris Cuomo as an “out-of-control animal” on Tuesday in response to a viral video in which the “Cuomo Prime Time” host threatened a man who apparently had called him “Fredo.”
A video of the confrontation, which originally surfaced on the YouTube channel “That’s The Point with Brandon” and was circulated by Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra, begins with the man telling Cuomo, “I thought that was who you were.” The CNN host clearly didn’t appreciate the comment and the clip quickly became a trending topic on social media.
Fredo is a reference to Fredo Corleone, the weak and facile brother in the movie “The Godfather,” who was played by John Cazale.
The CNN host is the younger brother of Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York. The confrontation took place Sunday at a bar on New York’s Shelter Island.
“I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts,” Trump tweeted. “Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN.”
