Republicans are once again taking up for someone who doesn’t give a rat’s tail for them or anything they stand for.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo found himself almost in a beat down on Monday night when some trolls labeled him “Fredo,” which is pulled from The Godfather movies. Cuomo seemingly wanted to fight the guys in the video for calling him out of his name. All-day Tuesday, social media made fun of the CNN anchor who claimed that using the name Fredo was the same as the n-word is to Black people.
Pres. Trump even made fun early Tuesday morning but Republicans pushed back on the response against Cuomo and Trump had a few words to say on Tuesday night about the situation and about the spine of Republicans in general.
“It always happens! When a Conservative does even a fraction of what Chris Cuomo did with his lunatic ranting, raving, & cursing, they get destroyed by the Fake News,” Trump tweeted. “But when a Liberal Democrat like Chris Cuomo does it, Republicans immediately come to his defense. We never learn!”

Show video of Cuomo’s meltdown and immediately follow it up with the Godfather II clip showing Fredo telling Michael “I can handle things. I’m smaaaht,” and tell me that doesn’t fit Cuomo to a “T.”
Why would Cuomo play the slur/victim card when it’s so easily refuted? Is he that cocooned that he actually believes it? Or is he that cynical that he thinks he and the force of CNN can make it happen — can make “fetch” happen?
He made himself look small. He cheapened racism. A loss all around.
Somewhere John Cazale, who played Fredo, is smiling from all of the attention. He had a short career but appeared in major movies like Dog Day Afternoon (played the second bank robber), The Deer Hunter, and The Conversation. Cazale, died at 42 from lung cancer, was Meryl Streep’s partner.
