ANDERSON Cooper slammed Donald Trump as an “obese turtle” who is “on his back flailing in the hot sun” because his time as president is “over.”
The political commentator told viewers on Thursday: “That is the President of The United States. That is the most powerful person in the world.
“Yet we see him as 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 everyone down with him, including this country.”
The former Celebrity Apprentice host kicked off his first media appearance by saying “if you count the legal votes I easily win” after Joe Biden was in the lead this afternoon by 3.8 million votes.
He then vowed he would not allow unfounded “corruption to steal such an important election” or “silence” GOP voters after debunked voter fraud claims flooded social media.
“They did the mail in ballots where there’s tremendous corruption and fraud going on,” he raged. “I told everybody that these things would happen.”
“I’ve already decisively won,” Trump insisted, hours after Biden said he had “no doubt” that he and Kamala Harris had won the fraught battle for the Oval Office.
Anderson has heavily covered the Trump administrative since he was elected in 2016, but has been a major fixture in politics throughout his 30-year career.
The famed television personality went viral during his 2020 election coverage on Wednesday after he mistakenly called Twitter “clitter.”
Many viewers thanked the news host for a much-needed laugh with his on-air gaffe amid a tense waiting period as results continue to trickle in for the presidential election.
Anderson was speaking about Trump’s early “victory” claims on CNN and baseless allegations he made on Twitter about voter fraud.
“You heard the president overnight basic– basically declaring victory, claiming that fraud was being committed and making false claims on clitter – on, on, excuse me, on Twitter,” Anderson said, stumbling over his words.
He then continued talking about the president’s baseless claims surrounding the election.
One user tweeted: “Anderson Cooper, thanks for clitter & something to laugh over to take the edge off this nail biter! I legit wrecked my manicure over.”
“CLITTER,” one userl tweeted. “LMAOOOO THANK U ANDERSON COOPER WE ALL NEEEDED THAT.”
“Anderson Cooper just said ‘Clitter’ instead of ‘Twitter’ and I am delirious,” one user tweeted.
On Thursday, CNN projected Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden will win Wisconsin and Michigan – placing him close to the finish line of winning the presidency.
