CNN opinion host Chris Cuomo (a.k.a. – Fredo Cuomo) got into a heated debate with Republican Elizabeth Heng, the founder of a political action committee called New GOP Faces.
As BizPac Review reported, Heng’s anti-socialism ad ignited heavy backlash because it showed a photo of Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez burning into flames, revealing the corpses of the millions who died in Cambodia under socialism.
After hypocritically accusing Heng of engaging in “toxic politics,” Cuomo said you can’t compare the Democratic Party’s championing of socialism to AOC’s communist rhetoric.
“Socialism doesn’t mean shoot you dead in the streets,” Cuomo said.
Heng replied: “It has evolved. When Hugo Chavez in Venezuela was talking about socialism in that country, he was promoting many of the same ideologies.”
The irony of Chris Cuomo lecturing Elizabeth Heng is emblematic of the Left, which traffic in theory with little or no real-life experience with the issues they champion.
In contrast, Heng’s father almost died under the socialist regime in Cambodia.
“But it’s not going to wind up in genocide,” Cuomo quipped.
Cuomo then tried to turn Heng against President Trump, saying Trump opposes people like her parents, who made a new life for themselves in the United States.
“Your fight is with the president that you support,” Cuomo said. “He’s the one who talks about people, like your parents, like they’re some ‘Other’ that shouldn’t be in this country because they came here with nothing except the hope in their heart and wanting to make it. He doesn’t want those people in this country now. AOC isn’t your enemy.”
For the record, President Trump has no issue with legal immigrants or legitimate political refugees. The problem is the open borders that Democrats are pushing for, which results in American taxpayers paying for the housing, healthcare, and medical expenses of illegal aliens who sneak into the United States or make sham asylum claims.
Heng retorted: “I don’t believe this, Chris. I stand by the president. The thing is with the president — he fights against socialism in every turn that he can.”
She added: “Look, socialism has always been disguised in these topics of making life better, etc., but in reality, they don’t work. We’ve seen that time and time again. The more that you implement government into our lives, the less freedoms and economic opportunities we have to succeed. And that’s why I created the New Faces GOP PAC to recruit the future generations of the next Republicans that are going to be the anecdote to the AOCs.”
Cuomo then cut her off, interjecting: “The idea of saying if you want a Green New Deal, if you want single-payer healthcare, you’re going to wind up killing people in the streets like happened with my family and people they knew in Cambodia. That is toxic politics.”
Oh really? Socialist regimes don’t kill people? Check out this Wall Street Journal footage of the Venezuelan National Guard running over anti-socialism protesters with armored trucks.
Meanwhile, here’s one of Chris Cuomo’s career highlights: Cuomo was comically immortalized as “Fredo Cuomo” on Siri, the virtual assistant on Apple’s popular iPhone, for a few hours.
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.”

The 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.
