Sean Hannity Responds to Chris Cuomo’s Expletive-Filled Maniacal Rant, & the Fox Hosts’s Take is Jaw-Dropping

Chris Cuomo completely humiliated himself.

He made a huge nut of himself.

It was incredible.

Stunning.

I’m talking, of course, about his antics on MSNBC.

Also, if you haven’t heard, over the weekend, he did his best to launch a viral video in which he acts like an idiot.

Who are these talking heads we see on the boob tube?

Witness Chris positioning himself on high here:



 

Now watch the paragon of virtue under a tent (and buckle up for a whooooooole lotta bad language):

Well, another talking head weighed in on the stunning confrontation.

Fox News man Sean Hannity weighed in, and honestly, I’m shocked:

What the heck??

Others were befuddled as well:

But this guy pointed out:

Is Sean way more “street” than he seems? Are he and Chris two peas in a f***in’ pod in that way?

Or was he being sarcastic?

I’m anxious to know what you think — sound off in the Comments section.

In my opinion, Chris came across as a rich guy from a rich family who desperately wants to feel and appear tough, who’s doing the only thing he knows of that conveys that: change his accent and just cuss a lot.

What do you @#?! think?

Family Members of Two El Paso Victims Say They Are Receiving Death Threats After Meeting With Trump

In yet another on a long list of examples of how we are living in incredibly stupid times, the Daily Mail reports that deranged lunatics have allegedly issued death threats to family members of two El Paso mass shooting victims because those family members had the audacity to meet with President Trump in the aftermath:

The family of the young couple who died protecting their baby from the El Paso gunman say they have received death threats after they met with Donald Trump.

A picture of the president went viral in the wake of the mass shooting at the Walmart after it showed first lady Melania holding little Paul Anchondo as POTUS smiled and gave a thumbs up.

Among the family members in the photo was the baby’s uncle, Tito Anchondo, a Trump supporter who said he had received death threats.

‘We should be coming together as a country at this time instead of threatening each other with hate messages,’ he said.

Here’s the photo the article talks about that went viral – and made liberals go crazy (the one on the bottom left):

Along with the President and the First Lady, Tito Anchondo is pictured at left along with with baby Paul Gilbert Anchondo and an unidentified member of the Anchondo family. Paul Gilbert survived the El Paso mass shooting because his parents Jordan and Andre Anchondo gave their lives to protect him.

Tito Anchondo told NPR last week that not only was he supportive of President Trump, but that his deceased brother had been a supporter, also:

[NPR Host David] GREENE: Of course, there are some in El Paso who don’t want the president to come to the city at all. Some here think that Trump’s language about immigrants could have incited the violence that took the life of Tito’s brother. And so I asked him about that.

ANCHONDO: I can see why people would believe that. And yes, maybe he said things in bad taste, but I think people are misconstruing President Trump’s ideas.

GREENE: I’m sure people hearing from you are going to react in all different ways.

ANCHONDO: Definitely, especially since I’m Hispanic.

GREENE: And I know that there are some listeners who have been very angry at this president and feel like he’s incited racism and are probably – might have thought like, you know, you have had – in this moment of tremendous loss, like, you were going to almost rise and be a spokesperson against some of what the president has said.

ANCHONDO: Yeah. I think – my brother was very supportive of Trump. We’ve always been Republican conservatives in our family.

It’s shameful and despicable that in addition to having to contend with the overwhelming grief of losing a brother and sister-in-law that the family is now having to concern themselves with death threats, presumably from unhinged people who don’t like the fact that some members chose to meet and take photos with President Trump.

Please remember to keep them and the family members of all of the victims of the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings in your thoughts and prayers, and pray that those threatening the Anchondo family will be found and brought to justice.

Fun Fact: Chris Cuomo Referred to Himself as “Fredo” During an Interview

The company said Wednesday that Cuomo’s weekday show will air on its nonpartisan P.O.T.U.S. channel. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File)

Just to show you that the outrage over calling CNN host Chris Cuomo “Fredo” is all “faux and show,” allow me to present to you Fredo himself calling himself Fredo.

According to the New York Post, it happened when Cuomo was appearing with Curtis Sliwa on his AM 970 radio show in January 2010. The two were discussing his brother, Andrew Cuomo, and his possible run for Governor of New York:

“There is a group of people — politicos — who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo.”

“Who am I, then, Fredo?” Cuomo asked in response.

“Yes, exactly,” Sliwa said. “So you better be careful that your brother Andrew doesn’t kiss you on both cheeks and then all of a sudden they take you out on the middle of the lake and where’s Chris?”

“He kisses me plenty because he’s a great big brother,” Cuomo said.

So Fredo labels himself Fredo, but gets upset and threatens to throw people down staircases when called that by other people, even going so far as to claim that “Fredo” is like saying the “n-word” to a black person.

This is like Cuomo trying to tell people they can’t call Italian people “Fredo” because it’s “their word.” Of course, it’s not a racial slur, it’s more of an attack on someone’s character, as Fredo was the weak brother from the Godfather movies who eventually betrays the family.

As I wrote in a previous article, Cuomo seems to have zero problems with the word “Fredo” if it’s being used as a way to describe people on the right. This includes the word being thrown around on his own show when used to describe Donald Trump Jr.

Again, all “faux and show” in order to promote the idea that the right is racist. However, if it is a racist term, then the left has a lot of explaining to do, including Fredo Cuomo.

Here’s Why Trump Is Right to Enforce the Law On Immigrants and Welfare

Over the past few days we’ve seen a collective freakout among the media over Trump supposedly being so cold and heartless that he’s going to make it tougher to legally immigrate if you are on welfare. That means

Multiple outlets, including NPR and The Washington Post, ran articles proclaiming insinuating how unprecedented and cruel this is.

Then you had people like California Gov. Gavin Newsom spouting this kind of nonsense. Brad Slager covered that here, along with the responses from several 2020 candidates.

I’ll recap the details of why this is happening legally, but past that, let’s just talk common sense.

A country with a vast welfare system, which we have, simply can not sustain itself by allowing the world’s poor to immigrate and collect benefits. If money weren’t finite and bankruptcy weren’t a real thing, I’d have no problem with it. My emotional response to want to help everyone we can.

But that can’t happen if you don’t screen immigrants for their propensity to take more than they give. Without that dynamic, you simply put the country on a quicker path to disaster. Handing out green cards to people who immediately go on SNAP and public housing is a recipe for creating a situation where the United States can no longer help anyone. The best intentions often lead to the worst consequences.

What Trump is doing is not a rash decision he made on a whim because he hates immigrants. He’s actually enforcing a law that goes all the way back to 1996, a law that was signed by none other than Bill Clinton.

This is the stupidity of our immigration debate. The other side not only relies on specious emotional arguments, they also rely on the idea that it’s immoral or wrong to enforce the law. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s required under the oath the President took. Every Democrat member of Congress that’s running in 2020 made the same pledge and now wants to pretend it doesn’t exist.

Don’t like the current immigration enforcement? Don’t like that the law requires immigrants to be self-sufficient? Go change the law. Making emotional pleas on Twitter and yelling Orange Man Bad is not a policy. That’s a weak minded person’s tactic.

What Trump is doing is simply following the law that preceded his administration. The fact that other administrations chose to flaunt the law is not grounds to now demand Trump do so now. The dishonesty on this topic from our media is mind-numbing.

Past that, it’s simply necessary that there be rules and stipulations placed on legal immigration into this country. To not have that will lead to the destruction of the system all together.

Surprise! Democrats and the Media Label President Trump a Racist Over a Democrat-Passed Law

When the smartest minds in California are this ignorant of the laws…

Kamala Harris is having a tough week. She was shown to be lying over the Michael Brown anniversary, was challenged and embarrassed by a nursing-home denizen, and her campaign is struggling mightily it seems in getting donations to keep it afloat. Now she has weighed in on another Trump proposal, and it only adds to her dysphoria.

The latest policy initiative to get the Dems in a dander is to instill a hardline restriction on the number of federal benefits immigrants can retain. It is an effort to get these residents off of government dependency and have them actually become a contributing member of the society that sought out to join. There is some confusion with the angry reactions from Democrats on the issue.

One of their prevailing arguments of late has been that immigrants are workers who actually provide net gains for the country by arriving. Now when the administration has announced they are holding firm on these built-in restrictions the Democrats are singing not only a different tune but one in a completely different genre. The new claim is immigrants will now be forced off of certain vital needs, which were previously claimed to be met with their positive-net work economic influence. It is outrage du jour.

In a mostly scathing article on the policy Think Progress detailed all of the negatives this would have on the immigrant community. The outlet quoted the National Immigration Law Center: “This news is a cruel new step toward weaponizing programs that are intended to help people by making them, instead, a means of separating families and sending immigrants and communities of color one message: you are not welcome here.”

Kamala has come forward to of course label this policy as the latest proof of Donald Trump’s racism.

California Governor Gavin Newsom has also vilified Trump over this enforcement. He invoked the need of these programs for their “basic survival”, in direct opposition to the claims they are contributing members to our society. Of course, for Newsom to say this brings up all of the lack of assistance he has been able to provide for the mounting homelessness problem sweeping his state. That is — actual citizens of this country.

All of these players — Harris, Newsom, immigration policy centers — have done one of two things here; displayed their arrogant ignorance, or they are outright lying. Neither is a positive. What the Trump administration is doing here is not instituting some new executive order — they are merely enforcing standing immigration law. This particular legislation has been made to see to it that those arriving to this country are doing so with the goal of assimilation and contribution.

And this has been the case for decades. Harris and Newsom are displaying rampant obliviousness about something that was passed in 1996, signed into law by William Jefferson Clinton. With Newsom this is hardly a surprise. He has shown a particular contempt for many federal guidelines on immigration, from establishing sanctuary cities to refusing to work with immigration officials and vilifying ICE. Whether unaware or hostile to this law, it is right in line with his character.

For Kamala, in particular, this is a bad look. As former Attorney General of California, she should be apprised of this type of legislation. She refers to Trump being ignorant of the history, yet here she is displaying rampant ignorance about federal law, and one pertaining to her home state. For a candidate trying to lay claim to the White House this becomes just another troubling component to her campaign.

Desperate Democrat Women are Turning to Witchcraft to Keep Trump from Winning 2020

Westlake Legal Group magic-2974384_1280-620x412 Desperate Democrat Women are Turning to Witchcraft to Keep Trump from Winning 2020 Women witch Politics magic Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception 2020 election 2020

President Donald Trump is going to win his reelection campaign in 2020, and everyone knows it. You know it, I know it, Republicans know, and Democrats especially know it.

You know they know it because in the midst of the 2020 Democrat candidates doing their best to campaign for a primary win, Democrat activists and lawmakers have been more focused on things like trying to find any tiny chance that Mueller investigation would produce something damning, or attempting to convince Michelle Obama to run, even after the lineup has been decided.

But desperate times call for desperate measures, and Democrat women have finally decided to see if magic will help them win in 2020.

You didn’t misread that. They’re casting spells and resorting to the occult.

Not that it’s anything new. Witchcraft has been surging since Trump’s election. Even celebrities have been in on the idea of gathering together to cast spells on Trump to make him fail.

They’re not working.

According to The Guardian, women are turning to the idea of being witches more and more thanks to a few factors. One is the reemergence of witches in pop-culture and the idea that Trump has brought the full force of the patriarchy down on the nation. In fact, author Sady Doyle noted that it’s also likely that witches are making a comeback out of spite based on, according to them, how 2016 Democrat failure Hillary Clinton was treated like a witch during Republican rallies:

When the witch emerged as a contemporary figure of resistance, it was hard to tell where she came from; Hollywood iconography, feminist history, the coming of age of the Craft generation or just the optics of the 2016 election, in which a presumed-to-be-monstrous woman was ritually castigated by a man who led crowds in chants of “lock her up”. Watching the chants take over the floor at the Republican national convention, Rebecca Traister wrote: “I was not the only person in the room to be reminded of 17th-century witch trials, the blustering magistrate and rowdy crowd condemning a woman to death for her crimes.” The new feminist identification with witches seemed to draw from every version of the myth at once: mystical and monstrous, feminist academia and horrorcore aesthetics, drawing them together in one angry, intentionally ugly repudiation of American patriarchy.

Doyle wrote that Trump’s election was a breaking point. Interesting choice of words, as turning to magic definitely sounds like something you’d do when you have a breakdown of some sort. With the supposed rise of the patriarchy, Doyle wrote that women turned from “the patriarchy’s gods” and moved toward an “old, dark power”:

But the old, dark power – the choice to worship something other than patriarchy’s gods, to reject and read backward the narratives of the dominant culture – was still there. The Trump administration represented a breaking point for many women. After decades in which sophisticated thinkers dismissed patriarchy as simplistic or irrelevant, it was revealed to be alive, well and out for blood – the ethos which still ruled the US government and defined, or ended, countless women’s lives.

It’s near the end that Doyle seems to get a bit on the creepily poetic side. She writes as if she’s speaking like she’s giving a monologue over a movie’s montage of women grabbing their black robes and pointed hats before making their way into the woods in droves. It comes off kind of awkward, mostly because Doyle seems to be taking this witch stuff way too seriously:

The witch lives between dark and daylight, the safely settled village and the wild unknown of the woods beyond. The backlash years of the early 21st century revealed to many women something we had always suspected: we had never belonged to that daylight world. We had tried; we had worked; we had been loyal to the rules and values of society as we knew it. But, no matter how far we thought we had come, or how often our mothers told us we could do anything, we still lived within a system that used female bodies as grist to maintain male rule. In the story that patriarchy told about itself, we were always going to be the villains. And if that was the case, we might as well make some magic out of it.

If the village didn’t want us, we might as well head out into the woods.

There is a fire on the horizon. You can see it burning, out on the edges of the world. The violence we have survived can be our guide to what needs to change. The fire that burned the witches can be the fire that lights our way. Our power is waiting for us, out in forbidden spaces, beyond the world of men. Step forward and claim it. Step forward into the boundless and female dark.

Rivetting.

In truth, witchcraft is really just another form of leftist “feel-goodism.” It’s the fantasy that helps the left believe that they’re changing things for the better, though really, they’re just making fools of themselves. A part of them knows that, even if they profess to believe it.

Trump’s win and his impending reelections has and is making people lose it. Those desperate to find something to hold on to as things continue to progress out of their control are going to resort to crazy things to make themselves feel more stable. For many Democrat women, that thing is turning to the dark magic of delusion.

“Fredo” Is a Racist Term Unless the Left Uses It, Including Chris Cuomo’s Guests, Then It’s Fine

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-12-620x317 “Fredo” Is a Racist Term Unless the Left Uses It, Including Chris Cuomo’s Guests, Then It’s Fine republicans racism Politics Media left george takei Front Page Stories Fredo Featured Story donald trump jr donald trump democrats CNN Chris Cuomo Anna Navarro Allow Media Exception

“It’s okay when we do it” is the unofficial motto of the left. I’ve said it once before, but it bears repeating now.

In the wake of CNN’s Chris Cuomo flipping out over someone labeling him as “Fredo,” the left rushed to his defense by referring to the name as “racist against Italians.”

To be clear, “Fredo” is not a racist term, and is an attack on someone’s weak character. Still, Cuomo and the left can’t hear something unpleasant to their ears without firing off the term “racist” like they’re the seagulls in Finding Nemo.

Interestingly, the left likes to use the term Fredo itself before this. Here are a few examples, including a CNN host using it.

Here’s George Takei calling Donald Trump Jr. “Fredo.”

Here’s Vanity Fair using it to describe the Trump administration.

And for the pièce de résistance, here’s CNN contributor Anna Navarro calling Trump Jr. “Fredo”…on Chris Cuomo’s show! 

Apparently, using the term is only offensive if it’s used against someone on the left who takes it way too defensively and adopts a tough-guy Italian-American accent as a defense.

Use it to describe a Trump family member or his administration and it’s no longer a slur, it’s somehow and accurate descriptor. If you’re wondering why people can no longer take the left’s claims of “racism” seriously anymore, this is why.

As I wrote earlier, the left has no real defense for themselves as confronting public figures during their off-hours is something they themselves have encouraged. This includes Cuomo, who sat back and defended Antifa after they attempted to raid the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, forcing his family to hide in the pantry. His network also doxxed an old lady for simply standing up for the Covington Catholic kids over a smirk.

This outrage from the left is purely for show. They don’t really think “Fredo” is a racial slur, they just want the public to believe it is in order to foster the “right is racist” narrative.

It’s On: Scott Presler Alerts Baltimore Sun Editorial Board Snobs That Planning for Second Cleanup Is Underway

An east Baltimore, MD neighborhood in the summer of 2018. Screen grab via Fox 45 – Baltimore.

As Brandon Morse reported last week, conservative activist Scott Presler did a good thing by organizing a community cleanup earlier this month of the poverty-stricken areas of Baltimore that are plagued by trash dumping and the failure of the city to pick up the trash on a consistent basis. To recap:

After President Donald Trump drew attention to Baltimore, some of his supporters went down to West Baltimore to assist with a cleanup effort. The group posted pictures of the effort with before and after photos and found some interesting things along the way.

According to OANN, the group was led by activist Scott Presler, who lead over 100 volunteers after the controversy first arose in the media. Presler said his cleanup effort started with a simple tweet about going to clean up Baltimore, even if it’s just by himself. The tweet went viral, and before he knew it the effort had a slew of volunteers ready to go.

The residents themselves were highly grateful and didn’t seem to be angry at Trump whatsoever.

Presler’s cleanup and the photos and videos he posted afterwards caught the attention of the liberal editorial board snobs at the Baltimore Sun, who wrote a sneering editorial in the immediate aftermath that focused more on what they believed Presler’s motivations were than the actual good deeds that were performed. Here’s just some of what they said (bolded emphasis added):

Whatever he says his motives were, Mr. Presler’s presence in Baltimore reinforces the tired image of our failing urban cores. That the poor people in this dilapidated city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods and all the public officials around them have failed as well. The bureaucratic, all-talk Democrats strike again. If a crowd of volunteers could clean up 12 tons of trash in 12 hours, how incompetent and helpless must Baltimoreans be if they can’t manage it in decades, right?

In short, the paper was far more concerned with the fact that Presler and his team made Democrats at the local, state, and national level (like longtime Rep. Elijah Cummings) look bad than they were with what was actually done by the volunteers to clean up the piles of trash and bring the community together.

The BS editorial board also indicated they were skeptical that Presler would return as he had said he would:

We also hope Mr. Presler keeps his promise to return to Baltimore once a month. It would definitely give his motives more credibility.

[…]

In the meantime, we’ll see how clean the neighborhood still is when he returns in September.

They needn’t be skeptical anymore. Presler alerted them Monday in a tweet that planning for the second cleanup effort was already underway:

To get a good idea of what Presler and his team first came up against when they visited the city, watch this video done by Fox 45 last year of a tour they went on with then-Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) of the hardest-hit areas of the city:

A firm September date has not yet been given by Presler as to when the cleanup crew will be returning to Baltimore. Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks.

The Left Doesn’t Get to be Mad that Someone Publicly Confronted Chris “Fredo” Cuomo

Screengrab from https://twitter.com/ChrisCuomo/status/1029186775556608000

I’ve never been a fan of the idea that you should find your political opponents in public and make a display of confronting them. I always found the action more on the sinister side than anything brave or righteous.

But there’s very little brave or righteous about mainstream leftist politics. The trend of finding a right-leaning figure in public and essentially chasing them out of the area was encouraged by actual Democratic politicians like Rep. Maxine Waters and Sen. Cory Booker. As a result, you had various incidents where an activist or politician was cornered by crazed left-leaning protesters who think they’re doing the dark lord’s work by being complete tools.

Regardless, people like Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens of TPUSA were chased out of a restaurant. Kirk even had a bottle of liquid poured on him. Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi were chased out of a restaurant as well. In fact, Cruz seems to be a favorite target of the left for public confrontation, as he was very recently surrounded by protesters at LAX.

Yet, hilariously, the left seems to be aghast that CNN’s Chris Cuomo was confronted in public.

In a now-viral video, a man is seen calling Cuomo “Fredo.” Cuomo doesn’t take kindly to this, dons his best Italian-American tough-guy accent, and proceeds to threaten the man with violence.

It’s pretty funny.

As I wrote earlier, YouTube is already trying to ban the video by claiming it qualifies as harassment. You can still see the video of Cruz being confronted in the restaurant, however, and from major media publications no less.

The outrage continued with CNN spokesman and VP Matt Dornic, who claimed Cuomo was defending himself from an ethnic slur.

Let’s pause here for a moment and make something incredibly clear. “Fredo” is not an ethnic slur. It’s a character insult, and the left knows it, but everything is racist.

Others also voiced their outrage that Cuomo was publicly confronted.

Once again, I want to make it clear that public people minding their own in public shouldn’t be harassed, and I’m not particularly applauding the guy who instigated Fredo’s meltdown, but Fredo did choose to have a meltdown instead of shrugging it off and walking away as Cruz does, and that’s the entire reason this is now a story.

But what should be understood here is that Cuomo is one of the people who encouraged confrontation. In fact, Cuomo has defended Antifa twice, and that group is famous for its intimidation tactics, including an incident where Antifa went to the home of Fox News’s Tucker Carlson and attempting to gain entry while making threats as Carlson’s wife and children hid in the pantry.

I think public figures should be left alone when not on the job, especially when they’re with their families.

That said, if Cuomo and the left think this is wrong, then they should think it’s wrong across the board. If you live by the sword, you get harassed by the sword.

I know it was you, Fredo.

The greatest thing flying around the internet right now is CNN host Chris Cuomo suddenly donning an Italian-American tough-guy accent and losing it all over this guy who called him “Fredo.”

For those of you who don’t know why that’s insulting, in Godfather 1 and 2, Fredo is the weak brother in the family that *spoilers* ultimately betrays the family. Calling someone “Fredo” is an insult as it’s essentially labeling someone as the weak link in the chain or the softest person on someone’s team.

Cuomo doth protest a little too much after being called Fredo, and it’s understandable. It rings a bit true in his case.

The video went viral as soon as it hit the internet thanks to this hilariousness of watching Cuomo awkwardly try to be a tough guy by threatening to throw the guy calling him “Fredo” down a flight of stairs.

But, like all things fun, YouTube decided the video went against its terms of service and banned the video from being seen on its platform. According to one Twitter user, YouTube did so because “Fredo” was deemed an “ethnic slur,” which it’s not. According to another, it promotes harassment and bullying. My question would be, who is bullying who?

The only bullying happening here is Cuomo attempting — and I use the word “attempting” here very literally — to intimidate the guy calling him “Fredo.” If Cuomo had just been called the name and shrugged it off, it would have been a non-story. Instead, Fredo took it very close to heart and adopted a tough guy act that the world saw through.

As it goes viral, YouTube comes in with the assist and takes down the video from its platform.

This is the same platform that features actual World Star street fights on its platforms. You don’t have to look far for a video of a feminist harassing pro-life people or see a video of Antifa doing its thing.

Making fun of Fredo Cuomo, though? Well, that’s too far.

It’s all a waste of effort, though. YouTube can’t keep track of all the mirrors and duplicates that will now populate the internet thanks to the Streisand effect that censorship causes. It also doesn’t own the myriad of platforms outside of its territory, where this video of Fredo is going viral, even as you read this.

The question is, who out there is trying to protect Fredo’s reputation with information suppression? Why, despite the millions of videos on its platforms that feature content far worse than this, do they suddenly get strict with their rules for Cuomo? Is CNN working with YouTube? Have they tried to get the video pulled elsewhere?
