Morning Digestion – 8-13-19: CNN’S CHRIS CUOMO FREAKS OUT AT BEING CALLED ‘FREDO’ BY HECKLER. “FOR ITALIAN AMERICAN SAME AS ‘N WORD’ FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN.” HUH?

It’s the dog days of summer, news is scarce, so CNN’s Chris Cuomo makes the top of everybody’s mind for freaking at heckler who called him “Fredo.” And so I learn that’s a very bad thing. Do not call an Italian American “Fredo.” OK. Got it.
