President Donald Trump chimed in with some commentary regarding the heated Chris Cuomo incident that nearly turned into a physical altercation. Someone called Cuomo 'Fredo' in public and Cuomo responded with profanities and threats to throw the person down a flight of stairs.
The crowd on social media has been divided. Some defended Cuomo for standing up for himself against a heckler. Others suggest Cuomo overreacted in public and it was embarrassing for someone to carry themselves that way.
Cuomo later responded as well, stating that he would like to be better than the people he opposes.
Trump also jumped on the 'Fredo' bit and said, "I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN"
Another tweet about Cuomo said, "Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!"
