CNN anchor Chris Cuomo lambasted a stranger who referred to him as "Fredo" - the dopey Corleone brother from "The Godfather" - claiming it was a racial slur. However, a 2010 interview reveals that Cuomo actually referred to himself as "Fredo" at one point, according to the New York Post.

Per the Post, radio host Curtis Sliwa interviewed Cuomo on AM 970 in New York and said:

"There is a group of people — politicos — who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo."

Cuomo's response was, "who am I, then, Fredo?"
