Maybe not as extreme as the N word, but I can see how it could be taken as some sort of ethnic insult. If someone addressed any random Irishman as Paddy, for instance, some might take it as an insult.

Anyway, if it was Hannity, Limbaugh or Tucker whatshisname who took a profanity laced temper tantrum, all of the Trump Humpers on here would consider it a manly display of ethnic pride.

Cuomo allowed it to be used on his show by Trump in January on CNN. He certainly didn't think it was racially or ethnically insulting then.

I would love to buy the guy that triggered him a beer.
Wait, you are freaked out about a news talk show host losing it when your beloved orange god king talks about grabbing women’s bits and bragging about it.

Having said that, if CNN fires him I won't have any problem with it - their business, their choice.
My first thought was simply if this was staged.

He is slowly self firing with his low ratings. CNN will keep him on hoping any publicity is good publicity and might boost his horrible ratings.

However this YouTube video will end up getting way more views that his CNN show gets.

So according to Chris Cuomo, CNN is Racist based on their own definition. It's right here on his own tweet.

So this other guy staged a public confrontation with Cuomo and verbally harassed him on video. And the President of the United States who I would think has better things to do gets on Twitter and engages in his usual juvenile insults. Classy.

Not necessarily the black sheep... the dumb sheep. And yeah, he's FOS trying to claim it's some ethnic slur when he sat silent while a guest used it on his own TV show and he has approvingly re-tweeted its use in his twitter feed.

Meanwhile the video shows him living up to the ethnic stereotype with such vigor that he'd be accused of over-acting if this were filmed on a mobster movie set. I get he doesn't want to be pestered by some publicity-seeking twerp while he's minding his own business but his response was way out of line.

He threatened to hurt the man in a very violent way.

Cuomo certainly comes off as quite unhinged.

One of the biggest things to me he is a man that preaches how thinned skinned Trump is. However have you ever seen Trump go off like this? Take it to another level. Imagine he was a gun owner. Maybe time to red flag him lol!!
