Chris “Fredo” Cuomo and attorney Rudy Giuliani got into a heated discussion on Thursday night. Why he bothers to go on the fake news network is anyone’s guess, he know they are not going to give him or President Trump fair coverage.
The interview quickly degenerated into a shouting match as the former mayor of New York City traded barbs that escalated steadily over nearly half an hour.
“You’re a sellout,” Giuliani told the CNN anchor at one point in the interview, adding Cuomo had opened the show with “totally erroneous” information and “completely spun” things.
And this is the result…
From The Hill:
President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani tore into CNN’s Chris Cuomo during an interview Thursday night, calling the CNN host a “sellout” during a contentious exchange over Giuliani’s efforts to get Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
Giuliani accused Cuomo of being “totally biased” during a heated back-and-forth after the Trump lawyer denied that he had asked Ukraine to look into Biden before seconds later acknowledging that “of course” he had asked for such a review.

Rudy: “No, I actually didn’t”

via The Daily Caller:
A video surfaced on Monday of CNN’s Chris Cuomo yelling at a man who called him “Fredo” — a character from the movie “The Godfather” — while at an event in New York over the weekend.
“No, punk-a** b****es from the Right call me Fredo,” Cuomo says. “My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN.”
“Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was that weak brother and they’re using it as an Italian aspersion,” Cuomo continued. “It’s like the ‘n-word’ for us.”

Cuomo is a pud. Will liberals get upset about this? Or just ignore it?
