Trump Appears to Take Swipe at Hannity for Defending Chris Cuomo Over ‘Fredo’ Video

Continuing his obsession over CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s filmed meltdown at a heckler who called the CNN personality “Fredo,” President Trump appeared to take a public swipe at one of his most loyal media sycophants on Tuesday for publicly defending Cuomo’s actions.

“It always happens!” Trump wrote. “When a Conservative does even a fraction of what Chris Cuomo did with his lunatic ranting, raving, & cursing, they get destroyed by the Fake News. But when a Liberal Democrat like Chris Cuomo does it, Republicans immediately come to his defense. We never learn!”

While there were a handful of right-wing pundits and notable Republicans who defended Cuomo and said he’d been baited by the heckler, it seemed apparent that the president was clearly taking aim at one person in particular.
