How to use aspersion in a sentence?

  1. Chris Cuomo:

    New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits harrassment, start cleaning New York up, and lowering taxes. Build relationships, but dont bring Fredo ! Trump said, tacking on a insult referring to Chris Cuomo, Chris Cuomo. The Fredo reference is a nod to The Godfather films, and a character in the film who ultimately betrays Chris Cuomo. The Fredo reference was first made by a Trump supporter last summer in a viral video that saw the television journalist get irate with the man for the insult. In the video, Chris Cuomo says the term was meant as a derogatory term for Chris Cuomo Italian heritage, similar to the N-word for African Americans. ( Punk-a ** b ***** s from the right call me Fredo, Chris Cuomo said in the video. My name is Chris Cuomo. Im an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather. He was a weak brother and they use it as an Italian aspersion.) DHS SUSPENDS GLOBAL ENTRY FOR New Yorkers ; WILL AFFECT 800K OVER 5 YEARS Chris Cuomo had said hes willing to restore federal access to driving records on a limited basis. But in a midday news conference, Chris Cuomo pledged not to let federal immigration agents see lists of people who had applied for a new type of license that doesnt require applicants to prove they are in the U.S. legally. If they think theyre going to extort New York into giving them a database of undocumented people, theyre wrong. I will never do that.
