Trump: Give CNN's Cuomo a 'red flag' for his 'Fredo' rant
President Trump on Tuesday suggested a “red flag” for Chris Cuomo — putting him on a list of people not allowed to own guns — after the CNN host was shown confronting a stranger in a profanity-laced viral video.
“Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant?” the president tweeted. “Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!”
In the video, which was posted to YouTube Monday by conservative media personality Brandon Straka, Cuomo is seen threatening an unidentified man who had called him “Fredo,” a reference to the hapless character Fredo Corleone in the 1972 film “The Godfather.”
Chris Cuomo’s elder brother, Andrew, is governor of New York state.
Cuomo later tweeted an apology, saying, “I should be better than the guys baiting me.”
Appreciate all the support but – truth is I should be better than the guys baiting me. This happens all the time these days. Often in front of my family. But there is a lesson: no need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose.
