It’s wrong to aggressively confront a public figure in a private capacity, especially if it’s with the sole intention of filming a provocation. It’s one thing to politely voice a concern or complaint with someone if they seem willing to engage with a stranger in their personal time. It’s entirely another to harass them while they’re on a family vacation.
We saw how the Left treated Ted Cruz and Tucker Carlson, and we were all outraged, weren’t we? If Cuomo was with his wife, or worse, with his children, then he had every right to stand up for himself. No, he should not have escalated the conflict with violent rhetoric. No, he should not have couched his defense of himself with a bogus spin on “Fredo” being as bad as the N-word. But Cuomo was right to be livid and he had every right to punch back.
