YOUR DAILY TREACHER: Libs, Including Chris Cuomo, Are Okay with Using ‘Fredo’ as an Insult.

There are a lot of ways you can respond when you think somebody has insulted you, but of course Chris Cuomo responded in Chris Cuomo fashion: aggressively hostile and hilariously stupid. He really was about to throw down with this dude, just for calling him “Fredo.”

What better way to shatter stereotypes about Italians than to yell and scream and threaten to beat up a guy in a public place over a harmless slight?

There’s a lot about this that’s funny, but perhaps the most amusing part is Cuomo’s assertion that the name “Fredo” is somehow “like the N-word for Italians.” We know this isn’t true right off the bat, because Cuomo himself keeps saying “Fredo” and not “the F-word.”

Besides that, how many times have people used the Fredo-word on CNN or MSNBC? More than once!

Heck, even Cuomo has called himself “the F-word:”

Cuomo was interviewed by Curtis Sliwa on his AM 970 radio show in January 2010 about whether his brother Andrew might seek the Democratic nomination for governor.

Sliwa said he dubbed the Cuomo family “la Cuomo Nostra.”

“There is a group of people — politicos — who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo.”

“Who am I, then, Fredo?” Cuomo asked in response.

“Yes, exactly,” Sliwa said. “So you better be careful that your brother Andrew doesn’t kiss you on both cheeks and then all of a sudden they take you out on the middle of the lake and where’s Chris?”

“He kisses me plenty because he’s a great big brother,” Cuomo said.

As Treacher writes, “If CNN had responded to the release of that video by saying, ‘The guy was with his family, just leave him alone,’ I’d agree. But instead, they’re going to the mattresses. They’re doubling down on Cuomo’s ridiculous claim of racism, so they deserve whatever they get.”

It wouldn’t have come to this point if the true Don, Guy Caballero, was still alive to bring peace to the five network families.
