CNN’s Democratic opinion host Chris Cuomo was comically immortalized as “Fredo Cuomo” on Siri, the virtual assistant on Apple’s popular iPhone, for a few hours yesterday.
iPhone users around the country erupted into laughter on Aug. 13 when the query “Siri, how old is Chris Cuomo?” auto-corrected with the reply: “Fredo Cuomo is 49 years old.”
This latest incident spotlights the continuing fallout of Cuomo’s unhinged meltdown after a Rush Limbaugh listener had called him Fredo.
Fredo was the dopey, incompetent brother of Mafia kingpin Michael Corleone from the award-winning film “The Godfather.” It’s an insult meant to jab at Chris Cuomo living in the shadow of his alpha-male older brother Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York.

“This is the only time Siri’s ever come in handy. 😂”

One Twitter user noted that when he asked “Who are Andrew Cuomo’s brothers?” Siri replied: “Andrew Cuomo’s brother is Fredo Cuomo.”

One America News host Jack Posobiec pointed out that Wikipedia had briefly stated that the “Godfather” character Fredo “is loosely based on Chris Cuomo.”

Chris forfeited the moral high ground when he reacted to someone calling him a harmless nickname by threatening to kill that person while screaming profanities at the top of his lungs.

As BizPac Review reported, Cuomo acted like a Mafia thug from “The Godfather” by threatening to throw a man down a flight of stairs simply for calling him “Fredo.”
“Take a f–king swing at me. I’ll f–king wreck your sh*t. You didn’t know what you were doing when you called me Fredo? What about now?
Punk-ass b*tches from the right call me Fredo. My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor at CNN. ‘Fredo’ is from ‘The Godfather.’ He was that weak brother. And they use it as an Italian aspersion.”
Many people could have excused Cuomo’s angry response to a random person teasing him when he was off-duty.
However, the CNN host lost all credibility when he falsely claimed that “Fredo” was an ethnic slur (it’s not). He then spouted the ridiculous lie that calling an Italian-American “Fredo” is the same thing as calling a black person the N-word.
Cuomo’s outrageous reaction was all the more ridiculous considering he had referred to himself as Fredo during a 2010 radio interview.

CNN’s Three Stooges had a wild, humiliating weekend.
It started with CNN’s race-baiting contributor April Ryan urging her bodyguard to assault New Brunswick Today reporter Charlie Kratovil.
Keep in mind that CNN constantly berates President Trump as a crazed bully. As usual, left-wing hypocrites are always projecting their own flaws onto Trump.
Thank you to Vivek Saxena of BizPac Review for shining a light on the ridiculous situation that led to my being injured by a reporter's bodyguard https://t.co/Zr07cei6Ob
