Trump Jr. encourages others to hurl ethnic slur at CNN anchor Chris Cuomo

Trump Jr. Cuomo

President Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. is openly encouraging people to hurl ethnic slurs at CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who is of Italian descent.

During what appears to be an ambush, a right-winger approached Cuomo and called him “Fredo”, which understandably upset the CNN anchor, who was out with his wife and child.

Cuomo did not shy away from confronting the man.

“Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was that weak brother and they’re using it as an Italian aspersion,” he explained. “It’s like the ‘N-word’ for us.”

He nearly came to blows with the man, who feigned ignorance by claiming he thought Cuomo’s name is “Fredo”. Cuomo called him out for lying.

Here’s the video via Twitter:

Despite Cuomo’s use of profanity, which he used on his own time and not on the air or in his capacity as a CNN employee, the network completely defended him.

“Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated set up,” CNN said in a statement. “We completely support him,”

And rightfully so. Cuomo did what anyone would do. He certainly was not going to let someone get away with treating him like sh*t, especially in front of his wife and little girl.

But Trump Jr., who also has kids, is trying to fan the flames of bigotry by repeating the ethnic slur and encouraging others to use it.

This is the son of a man who hurls racism every chance he gets and has incited hate and violence against people of color.

Clearly, now even white people are being targeted by the Trumps and their supporters.

But Trump Jr’s attack even went too far for Fox News host Sean Hannity, who surprisingly came to Cuomo’s defense.

Now if only Hannity would stand up to Trump and Trump Jr. for their bigotry.
