    Chris just completely played this wrong and his new call sign is now forever Fredo.

    Never knew Fredo was that big an insult to Italians...note to self...never call unc a fredo



    Then things quickly escalated when the CNN anchor suggested he would throw him "down these stairs."

    "I don't want to have a problem with you, man," the man repeated.

    "You're gonna have a f---in' problem," Cuomo said.

    "What, what you gonna do about it?" the man asked.

    "I'll f---ing ruin your s---," the "Cuomo Prime Time" anchor replied. "I'll f---in throw you down these stairs like a f---in' punk."

    "Please do," the man said.

    "So you can f---in' sue?" Cuomo asked. "Then take a swing at me... You wanna call me 'Fredo,' take a f---in' swing... I'm f---in' right here. I'll f---in' wreck your s---."

    Ha, I'd just started a thread with a link to the vid. Our awesome mods/parents merged the two.

    Yeah, he did play it totally wrong. Never run your mouth, let your fists do the talking if it comes to that. Insults have never phased me.

    The MAGA boy only wanted to run his mouth and try to set Chris up for a physical confrontation and subsequent lawsuit. Chris was baited and couldn't see it.

    MAGA boy and his buddy doing the filming thought they would at least get Chris punished or fired. But that backfired too.

    It’s not but only a Fredo would think it is.

    Apparently it’s well known that is how NY Democratic elected officials refer to Chris. Clearly he doesn’t like it.

    What happens if a Fox anchor reacts the same way to a minority filmer/instigator?

    Should the same thing happen here?

    My take is that he's confusing "Guido" with "Fredo." Fredo is definitely an insult directed at failsons like Cuomo, but its not really an ethnic insult like "Guido."

    It looked to me that Chris was arguing with two white guys, and not a minority.

    But, if any anchor from any network does what Chris did in this instance, they should not be fired. This was just two babies arguing.

    Whoop-de-damn-do. I don't develop emotional attachments to Ron Burgundy, no matter the propaganda network he may work for.

    Also, is Fredo that much of an insult? He did run a successful casino and was banging cocktail waitresses two at a time. Pretty decent!

    It’s pretty clear he knew it was Fredo. I think that name drives Chris nuts because he knows that is what he is called behind his back.

    If that were Trump we’d be talking about how New Yorkers just talk that way. The Fredo is the guy who backed down.

    Who care, he's a member of the media and should not be surprised when people mess with him. Just walk away.

    Now if its someone mess with his children or wife even, perhaps it's different IMHO.

    To "pull a fredo" (banging two waitresses) is a compliment. being a "fredo" (a slow-witted beneficiary of nepotism) is an insult.

    SO would his behavior red flag him under the proposed gun rules? Is this all just a provocation to make a run at stopping red flag laws?
