Anderson Cooper: Trump ‘an obese turtle on his back’
Cooper said Trump just shot his mouth shut and had no actual evidence to back his allegations.
“You will find that the president has provided no evidence at all,” said Cooper.
“Nothing, no real, actual evidence of any kind of fraud, talked about people putting papers in windows. He was talking about things he had seen on the internet. “
Then Cooper got personal with the president.
“This is the President of the United States,” the CNN anchor said.
“This is the most powerful person in the world and we see him like an obese turtle on his back, whirling around in the hot sun and realizing that his time is over, but he just didn’t accept it and he wants to take everyone with him, including him this country.”
ANDERSON COPPER said Trump was an “obese turtle on his back, spinning in the hot sun and realizing his time is over.”
