President Unloads On ‘Fredo’ After Tirade With ‘Red Flag’ Suggestion

Although the video of Cuomo’s tirade was quickly deleted from YouTube yesterday, it has been put back up so that all can see the raging hatred of the CNN ‘journalist.’

And he shall be called 'Fredo,' from now and forevermore.

Yesterday, video showing CNN anchor Chris Cuomo going ballistic over being called ‘Fredo’ was swiftly removed from YouTube. But, that didn’t stop the clip from going viral on other outlets.

President Trump commented on the vicious outbreak in true Trumpian style.

In the ‘Fredo’ video, Cuomo is seen going red-faced, yelling profanities and threatening to “ruin” the man who dared to call him a word that he said, was exactly the same as the ‘n-word’ to Italian Americans.

He also threatened to hurl the person down stairs.

YouTube has apparently backtracked on its ban, because the video is now back up on the platform.

It’s possible that attention from the president had something to do with that change.

Breitbart News reported:

President Donald Trump further addressed Tuesday the video of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo unleashing a profanity-laced tirade at a man calling him “Fredo.”

“I think what Chris Cuomo did was horrible, his language was horrible, he looked like a total out-of-control animal,” Trump said. “He lost it, and frankly I don’t think that anybody could defend him, because he spews lies every night.”

He also taunted Cuomo for acting like he was going to fight the man, adding that it was lucky that the CNN anchor was not armed.

“I think Chris Cuomo was so out of control that I would not have wanted to see a weapon in his hand,” Trump said. “I guess his fist is not a weapon or he would have done something, you know he talks about it but he didn’t do anything.”

Trump said he watched the video and said he could not understand why anybody would defend the anchor’s reaction.

“I think anybody that would have seen Chris Cuomo would have said that was a disgrace,” he said. “You’ve never seen me do that.”

The president commented on the video as he left the Morristown, New Jersey airport to visit Pennsylvania. He also mentioned the viral video on Twitter.

I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN

Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!

Incidentally, red flag laws are extremely offensive to many conservatives, and the president’s tweet emphasizes all the reasons why.

Anyone can ‘report’ anyone, and that person’s constitutional rights are removed… until the person can prove he’s not a danger to other.

That sort of complaint acceptance is contrary to the idea of freedom.

No doubt that Cuomo shouldn’t have a weapon… but he also shouldn’t have an audience, many agree. But, that doesn’t mean someone else should dictate his rights.

Serious slippery slope.
