Uh Oh. Chris Cuomo Referred to Himself as Fredo in Old Radio Interview
Can one commit a hate crime against one's self? Yesterday the dumber Cuomo (depending upon who you ask) said calling an Italian person "Fredo" was comparable to using the N-word. Despite that being complete and utter caca poopy. Well, the people at The New York Post did a little digging and found Chris Cuomo slurred himself in a 2010 radio interview with Curtis Sliwa on AM 970 while the two discussed the possibility of Andrew seeking the Democratic nomination for governor.
“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?”
The main issue here is if Chris is the bumbling Fredo, then Andrew is Michael Corleone. Andrew is as much a Michael Corleone as one of my dogs. So while I'm on board with insulting Chris with a reference to classic cinema, let's maybe find a better comparison for Andrew Cuomo. Here, I have an idea:
Also, if "Fredo" is the same as the N-word (Lol, no), how many black people do you know who, in a radio interview or any interview at all, call themselves the N-word without fuss? I count zero.
All this means is Chris Cuomo botched up an opportunity to be the bigger man. A dingus harassed him in public. But instead of us talking about how people should refrain from being harassing dinguses, now we're talking about The Godfather and who will play Sonny in the remake. I vote Josh Gad.
