Trump Compared to Fredo often - Brief Bio on late actor who portrayed Fredo



To this day, the character is an unwelcome comparison for any individual. Essentially, a “Fredo” is a weak link, a dimwit incapable of overcoming his intellectual shortcomings. Naturally, it took one of Hollywood’s greatest — and most overlooked — actors to portray him. And when it came to the craft of acting, John Cazale was no Fredo. By the time of his death 40 years ago, Cazale had appeared in only five full-length feature films. Remarkably, all of them received an Academy Award nomination for best picture, and three won the top prize (The Godfather, The Godfather Part II and The Deer Hunter).

1. I believe he was dating Meryl Streep when he died, around the end of filming the Deer Hunter.

He was a really great actor with such potential. Very tragic.

6. I didn't know Robert DeNiro paid his insurance during filming, the production

Company wouldn't pay and wanted to recast. Another reason to love Robert DeNiro.

4. By the way, Trump reminds more of Joey Zasa than of Fredo.

5. Nunes is so Fredo.

Rep. Mike Quigley, a Democrat, asked Nunes point-blank if his staffers had been talking with the White House as they compiled a four-page memo alleging FBI and Justice Department abuses over surveillance of President Trump’s allies in the Russia probe.

According to sources familiar with the exchange, Nunes made a few comments that didn’t answer the question before finally responding, “I’m not answering.”

As if that WASN'T a yes answer.
That moron has worn a path to the White House as he scurries back and forth racking up counts of obstruction.
