On Tuesday, Fox News host Sean Hannity came to the defense of  CNN’s Chris Cuomo for a rant captured in a viral video.

On Monday, a video surfaced in which Cuomo cursed and threatened to “f—ing throw” someone down the stairs after a person called him “Fredo.” Cuomo said the term refers to a fictional character from “The Godfather” that is a “weak” man, and is generally seen as an “Italian aspersion,” even comparing it to the “N” word.

Cuomo even asked the man if he wanted to be called “punk b–ch” as a nickname and told him “I’ll ruin your s–t.”

Cuomo also said he was out with his family, including a young child.

Hannity defended Cuomo’s language and behavior, tweeting, “I say good for @ChrisCuomo. He’s out with his 9 year old daughter,  and his wife, and this guy is being a jackass in front of his family. Imho Chris Cuomo has zero to apologize for. He deserves the apology.”

DMLNews App Founder Dennis Michael Lynch took to Twitter to slam Hannity for his tweet.

“Real Sean v. Fake Sean. Real Sean defends [Chris Cuomo]! Real Sean wants amnesty for illegals until ratings bomb (2012),” Lynch tweeted. “Real Sean=selfies w/@MichaelAvenatti @donlemon. A REAL MAN ignores ‘Fredo’ comment to avoid placing his kid in harm’s way. But like [you], [Chris Cuomo] has a [g]od complex. [You’re] all fakes.”

Lynch included a picture of Hannity mugging for a selfie with CNN’s Lemon, as well as Avenatti and CBS News co-host Gayle King.

President Donald Trump also appeared to throw shade at Hannity, tweeting, “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!”

    I agree with DML

    I said the same thing DML. Sean was wrong and like you I thought the exchange was pure male drama and a total embarrassment for his family. He should have walked away because of his daughter and wife.
    Just another LOSER.

    It falls me that anyone can defend Cuomo when every minute of everyday for the past 3 yrs Cuomo has launched disgusting verbal assaults at the Trumps! He didn’t care who his words affected as long as it was Trump! Very disappointed in Hannity! Cuomo is a big whiner! The tables were turned on him and he didn’t like it!!!
