President Trump has been hammering CNN’s Chris Cuomo all day and he just landed the knockout blow.
Trump’s ever flexible campaign staff was quick on the draw and are already selling “Fredo Unhinged’ shirts.
Funny – for some reason I don’t see this ending well for the hot-tempered CNN host. From The Hill:
President Trump’s reelection campaign is selling T-shirts mocking Chris Cuomo after the CNN anchor got into a heated, profanity-laced argument with someone who called him “Fredo.”
The shirt being sold by Trump’s campaign includes the label “Fredo unhinged” and “text ‘Fredo’ to 88022,” alongside images of Cuomo from a video of the confrontation.
Although it is unclear where the video was filmed, it shows Cuomo threatening and cursing at a man who allegedly mocked him by calling him Fredo, a character from the film “The Godfather.” The host also compared using the word against Italian people to using the n-word against black people.
“Punk ass bitches from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo says in the video. “My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from ‘The Godfather.’ He was a weak brother and they use it as an Italian aspersion.”
