On this morning’s show, Rich discussed Chris Cuomo’s public meltdown at length, in which Cuomo threatened a man who called him “Fredo.” Cuomo was not amused by the comparison to the Godfather character who betrayed his family, and Rich said feared he would be threatened by Cuomo if he referred to him as “the lesser” in public.

“It’s the same concept, the same concept being in the family, you are the lowest in the family. Deep down inside, it burns [Chris Cuomo]. It burns him inside. And I can just see him sitting on a couch right now saying to a therapist, “Well, here’s the thing. All my life, my older brother has had everything- the success, the looks, the money, the girls, the power. And now I get this big prime-time show and I’m No. 16 in the ratings and I can’t stand it anymore.’”
