A clip of CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has gone wildly viral in which he compares Mr. President Trump with an obese turtle lying on the back and flailing in the sun, knowing time is over!
Cooper’s remarkable comments come after Donald Trump, having apparently lost his ground in the US Election 2020, said in a press conference that ‘big tech, big money, the media, pollsters, and Democrats’ have rigged the election.
Ever since the voting lines were closed this week’s Tuesday, Trump has frenzied Twitter, releasing one-after-the-other posts accusing of election fraud from the Democrats, without any evidence.
He says the opposition has ‘stolen’ the votes, and has time and again declared premature winning. At the 17-min White House address Trump spoke so many lies at once, American media paused the live broadcasting.
Trump said If you count the ‘legal votes’ I easily win, but if you count the illegal votes ‘they can try to steal the election from us,’ Trump said, without any evidence.
“OK. Here we are again in the unusual position of not only interrupting the president of the United States but correcting the president of the United States,” MSNBC anchor Brian Williams said cutting the live coverage from White House.
Other major American media including ABC, NBC, cut Trump away as soon as he started the baseless accusations. CNN kept Trump on air but ran a chyron: “WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE, TRUMP SAYS HE’S BEING CHEATED.”
“What a sad night for the United States of America to hear their President say that,” CNN anchor Jake Tapper says on air. “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 after lie.”
In the extraordinary 50-seconds clip circulating on social media, along with the ones highlighting the punch lines, CNN presenter Cooper says: “I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything like this from a President of the United States and I think, as Jake [Tapper] said It’s sad and it is truly pathetic.”
“And of course it is dangerous, and of course it will go to the courts, but you’ll notice that the president did not have any evidence presented at all, nothing. No actual, real evidence of any kind of fraud. He talked about people putting papers up in windows he talked about things he’d seen on the internet.”
“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, but he just hasn’t accepted it and he wants to take everybody down with him, including this country.”
According to Newsweek, the obese turtle video is one of the most-watched election videos which was watched some 10 million times collectively. Some high-profile shares of the clip amassed the video the jaw-dropping numbers in less than 24-hours.
Trump and Biden are on the knife’s edge as thousands of votes are yet to be counted. Democrat Joe Biden is currently leading the key state of Pennsylvania. In Nevada, Georgia, and Arizona Biden is ahead as well.
