Donald Trump’s speech amid the election vote counting had a lot of people feeling a lot of things.
Frustration and anger at the President’s lack of respect for democracy and basic facts boiled over on not just social media but also the news channels.
Most networks cut Trump’s speech short but it was CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s commentary afterwards that went viral.

“That is the President of the United States. 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,” Cooper said.

Trump wrongly claimed that the election was being stolen from him by giving illegitimate evidence.

Cooper’s insult was brought up again on Saturday while he was interviewing former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
“I’m happy to say, it seems like Trump is going to be, in your words, an obese turtle on his back, just flailing around, Anderson,” Yang said as everyone was celebrating Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ win.
Cooper responded by saying that he does “regret” using those words.
“By the way, I should say, I regret using those words because that’s not the person I really wanna be. It was in the moment, and I regret it,” he added.
