CNN's Cooper Slams Trump's Election Remarks: 'Like an Obese Turtle on His Back Flailing in the Hot Sun'


President Donald Trump is receiving backlash for his “falsehood-laden speech” on Thursday.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper was one of the many who pushed back on Trump’s claims, saying, “That is the most powerful person in the world and we see him like an obese turtle on his back flailing in the hot sun realizing his time is over but he just hasn’t accepted it and wants to take everybody down with him, including this country.”

He also called Trump’s speech “sad,” “pathetic,” and “dangerous.”

“Of course it will go to court, but you’ll notice the president did not have any evidence presented at all,” Cooper continued. “Nothing. No real actual evidence of any kind of fraud.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper also called Thursday a “sad night” for the President of the United States to “falsely accuse people of trying to steal the election, to try to attack democracy that way with his feast of falsehoods. Lie after lie.”

“Frankly, watching him flail like this is just pathetic.”

Additionally, CNN’s Jim Acosta, who was at the White House during Trump’s remarks, said it “sounded like somebody who is just a sore loser.”

Acosta added, “He saw the writing on the wall and the writing on the wall says he’s a one-term president.”

During the president’s remarks, NBC’s Lestor Holt interjected during the broadcast, “We have to interrupt here, because the president made a number of false statements, including the notion that there has been fraudulent voting. There has been no evidence of that.”

“If you count the legal votes, I easily win. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us,” Trump claimed on Thursday, which The Washington Post called “utterly false.”

Trump also, without evidence, said, “This is a case where they’re trying to steal an election, they’re trying to rig an election, and we can’t let that happen.”

As of Friday morning, Biden still holds a lead in the close presidential race with 253 Electoral College votes out of the 270 needed to win the presidency, compared to Trump’s 214 electoral votes. Mulitple key states have yet to be called.
