Cuomo is a preacher not a news anchor.

I’ve certainly lost my respect for Hannity.

If he believes a violent outburst is a constructive way to deal with an instigator, he’s out. For people who can be targeted by unstable individuals, a violent outburst is a surefire way to instigate the instigator and can lead to a dangerous conflict.

Can you imagine if Eric Trump, who was recently SPAT AT at a Chicago restaurant, acted like this, what the reaction would be? All of a sudden Fredo would have grown wings, right? But he was cool about it. He knows better. Maybe he’s not quite as dumb as he’s been made out to be.

Cuomo referred to himself as Fredo during a 2010 radio interview talking about la Cuomo Nostra, and his brother’s pursuit of a nomination for governor.

These days I wonder if CNN is just trying to apply reverse psychology

CNN has published an apology article. Cuomo says he needs to be better than what he opposes.

Quoted in said article, former White House comm director Michael Scarammuci says he is often called Fredo, and that he thinks it’s racist.

Sure, Fredo (or Polack) isn't as vile as the N-word but considering the situation he found himself in...

Since I now see a CNN spox referred to the word Polack as derisive towards Polish people and compared it to Fredo, I need to clarify something.

The word Polack is only derisive towards Poles among non-Poles who think they’re being derisive towards Poles.

Polack, in Polish, literally means Pole. As in, “ja jestem Polak,” or I am Polish.

People who think Polack is derisive would never question how a Canadian calling himself Canadian, or referring to his Canadian friends as Canadian, is derisive, or anyone other than a Canadian calling a Canadian Canadian is derisive.

So as far as ethnically insensitive or derisive terms go, Polack is sort of at the bottom of the ladder as nobody who’s Polish actually finds it at all offensive. And if they do, they’re a little confused or easily offended by things that shouldn’t offend them.

So long story short, the CNN spox should have referenced a better example of an ethnically insensitive term towards people of a certain ethnicity when illustrating how Fredo is an ethnically insensitive term toward Italians by comparing it to Polack (or maybe that was a Freudian slip?).

You never hear Polack anymore but believe me, 40 years ago it was a bad thing to say. You weren't even born yet, Mike.

If only Fredo Corleone had ended up with a talk show, rather than **SPOILERS REMOVED**

Oh, Siri.

 

I don't know/follow this individual but this is a most unfortunate glitch that's gone viral and has been replicated by a whole bunch of people: https://twitter.com/...422578960879616

 

It has been rectified now.

Another day, another CNN anchor spectacle.

Don Lemon has been accused of sexually assaulting a man who claims Lemon took a manoeuvre out of Trump’s playbook and stuck his hand down his pants, grabbed... you get the picture... and then proceeded to raise that hand to the man’s face, asking him what his sexual preferences are.

😳

Anyways, a witness has come forward corroborating the incident.
