President Donald J. Trump continued to hammer CNN anchor Chris Cuomo on Tuesday over an angry rant caught on tape.

On Monday, Cuomo had an argument with an individual who called him “Fredo.” According to Cuomo, Fredo is a racist slur as bad as calling an African American the N-word. Fredo is from the movie “The Godfather.”

In the video, Cuomo curses and threatens the individual that called him Fredo. He also explains that Fredo was “a weak brother and they use it as an Italian aspersion.”

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted, “I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN.”

Later Tuesday, Trump lashed out again. He tweeted: “It always happens! 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!”

He also sent out a second tweet, agreeing with a tweet that indicated most of CNN’s audience is at the airport.

“True! Without being stuck at an airport, where CNN buys (at a big price) an uninterested audience, they’ve got nothing going. @CNN is BAD for America!” Trump tweeted.
