‘The Five’ reacts to CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s viral dispute


>>Mark: CNN’S CHRIS CUOMO WENT BALLISTIC AFTER BEING CONFRONTED WHILE HE WAS OUT WITH HIS FAMILY. THE GUY APPARENTLY CALLED HIM FREDO, A REFERENCE FROM THE MOVIE THE GODFATHER. CHECK OUT THIS CONFRONTATION.>>I DO NOT INSULT YOU. DO YOU WANT THAT TO BE HER NICKNAME CUSTOMER>>I DIDN’T CALL YOU THAT.>>YOU CALLED ME FREDO. DON’T BE A LIAR. I WILL BLANK RUIN YOU.>>WELL WHY DON’T YOU DO THAT?>>Mark: CUOMO HAS SINCE RESPONDED AND SAID THAT HE MISSPOKE. BUT HIS INTERPRETATION OF THE WORD FREDO HAS APPARENTLY CHANGED OVER THE YEARS. HE IS OR WHAT HE SAID BACK IN 2010.>>THERE’S A GROUP OF PEOPLE, POLITICOS THAT THEY ALWAYS HINT THAT THEY MIGHT RUN BUT DON’T NECESSARILY PLUNGE ALL THE WAY. THEY ARE MEMBERS OF.>>Mark: CNN IS CREATING EVEN MORE CONTROVERSY, CLAIMING THAT FREDO IS AN ETHNIC SLUR.>>KEPT FREDO BACK HOME, SO WHO CARES WHAT DONALD TRUMP JR. SAY SAYS.>>THIS GUY, ON THESE DIFFERENT OCCASIONS, BASICALLY TRIED TO OBSTRUCT JUSTICE.>>NOBODY RESPECTED HIM ENOUGH TO CARRY OUT HIS ORDERS.>>Mark: YOU KNOW, GREG, WE SHOULD ALL JUST ENJOYED THIS STORY. WHAT I ESPECIALLY LIKE ABOUT THIS IS WHEN HE GOES STRAIGHT TO THE F WORD. HE ACTUALLY SAYS, “OH, BY THE WAY I’M CHRIS CUOMO. I HAVE A SHOW ON CNN. AN “>>Greg: YOU DON’T WANT TO BOTHER PEOPLE, BUT ALSO, DON’T TURN THINGS INTO THINGS THAT ARE NOT RACIST INTO THINGS THAT ARE. NOR IS FAKE NEWS THE N-WORD FOR JOURNALISM. SOMETHING IN CUOMO’S BRAIN. THAT’S THE N-WORD FOR ITALIANS. IT’S SOMETHING THAT HE USES OVER AND OVER AGAIN. IT’S AN ANALOGY FOR HIS OWN CLAIMS OF VICTIMHOOD. THE GUY WHO WENT AFTER HIM IS NOTHING LIKE ANTIFA. THE BOTTOM LINE IS, I THINK HE KNEW THIS WAS HAPPENING. BUT I THINK THIS FEEDS INTO HIS, I KNOW HIS REPUTATION AS A TOUGH GUY. A NETWORK THAT THROWS AROUND THE H WORD. HITLER. EVERYBODY THAT WORKS HERE IS SOMEHOW A WHITE SUPREMACIST, ACCORDING TO CNN.>>Mark: SO IF I FOLLOW THAT. [LAUGHS]>>Mark: THE VICTIMHOOD THING IS THE MOST ABSURD THING ABOUT THIS. THE IDEA THAT FREDO.>>IT’S NOT AN ATHLETIC SLUR. IT IS NOT IN NICE. I MEAN, YOU ARE BASICALLY CALLING SOMEONE A LOSER. SO IT’S NOT NICE. I DO GET THOUGH, I MEAN, HE’S OUT WITH HIS FAMILY AND HE’S TRYING TO HAVE A DECENT TIME. I THINK PEOPLE THAT NOW EXIST TO EXCITE YOU, TO COME UP TO YOU, TO AGGRAVATE YOU, TO DISRUPT YOUR PEACE, TO RECORD YOU, TO TRY TO CAPTURE SOME CRAZY THING THAT THEY CAN THEN DISTRIBUTE ON THE INTERNET, IT CAN BE INFURIATING. I HAVE MY OWN MOMENTS WHERE I CAN BE OUT AND THAT CAN HAPPEN, AND I MIGHT JUST START BLOWING OFF STEAM IN THAT MOMENT. SO I GET IT. HE CAME ON AND SAID “I SHOULDN’T HAVE REACTED THAT WAY. I SHOULDN’T HAVE TAKEN THE BAIT.” I DO GET THE ROOF FRUSTRATION OF JUST EXISTS DOMINIC EXISTING IN THE PUBLIC EYE.>>Greg: DON’T GO OUT.>>Mark: THERE IS NORMAL SITUATIONS LIKE GO OFF THE RAILS. IF YOU ARE EATING AT A RESTAURANT. BUT YOU DON’T DO WHAT THIS GUY DID. THERE IS A COOL WAY TO REACT TO THIS KIND OF THING, ISN’T THERE?>>Juan: THERE IS. I TEND TO WALK AWAY, BUT IT HAPPENS, AND IT’S VERY UNPLEASANT. I’M SHAKEN BY THE IDEA THAT THIS WAS RECORDED. THIS INDICATES TO ME THAT IT WAS A SET UP OF CHRIS CUOMO. THE KIND OF RHETORIC THAT HE WAS USING WAS INTENDED TO PROVOKE CHRIS CUOMO. I THINK THAT’S WHY YOU SEE SO MANY PEOPLE STANDING UP FOR CHRIS, INCLUDING PEOPLE ON THIS CHANNEL. I KNOW THAT THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T LIKE HIM. WHY ARE WE DEFENDING CHRIS CUOM CUOMO? I JUST WROTE ABOUT IT IN MY COMMENTS. SOME GUY COMES UP TO ME AND STARTS USING OFFENSIVE WORDS AND SAYS HE LIKES TROLLING ME AND HE AND HIS BODY BUDDIES. HE ASKED FOR A SELFIE. IT’S UNBELIEVABLE. IT’S LIKE, YOU ASK ME, WHAT DO I DO?>>Greg: DO YOU THINK THE COMPARISON IS FAIR THAT FREDO IS THE N-WORD?>>Juan: NO, I THINK THAT THIS GUYS SET UP CHRIS CUOMO AND CHRIS CUOMO FILE FOR THE BAIT. APPARENTLY, I AM VERY RECOGNIZABLE.>>Mark: YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE? I WOULD LOVE TO SEE SOMEONE COME UP TO DANA PERINO IN A RESTAURANT AND FOR DANA TO LAUNCH INTO A. SOMEONE SHOULD SET THAT UP.>>Dana: I AM SO UNRECOGNIZABLE. THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN. WHEN YOU ARE OUTSIDE OF NEW YOR NEW YORK. YEARS AGO, I REMEMBER BEING CALLED A WAR CRIMINAL.>>Greg: I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT.>>Dana: I FIND IT VERY UNATTRACTIVE WHEN MEN DO THIS. SUPER UNATTRACTIVE. I ALSO FEEL LIKE BEING THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY, YOU NEVER, EVER LET THEM RATTLE YOU. DO NOT LET THEM ROB YOU OF YOUR DIGNITY. BUT ALSO, YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT THE CAMERAS ARE ALWAYS ON. THERE’S THAT. THE OTHER THING IS, I MET A TOTAL LOSS. I DON’T UNDERSTAND THE CONTROVERSY. I NEVER SAW THE GODFATHER.>>Mark: THAT’S HOW NICE SHE IS. BEFORE I CAN TESTIFY, SHE IS THE NICEST.>>Greg: C GODFATHER ONE AND TWO.>>Mark: I WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET WITH DON RUMSFELD AFTER THE IRAQ WAR. THERE WERE ALL THESE PEOPLE YELLING “WAR CRIMINAL. WAR CRIMINAL.”

  1. It sucks because CNN used to be a good respectable news station they were well known for reporting the invasion of Iraq in the Gulf War and in 2003 they need to realize that they are a news network not an opinion Network

  2. Kudos to Juan Williams for correctly clarifying what the incident actually was; a pre-meditated set-up deliberately done & recorded to make Chris Cuomo look bad.
