Anderson Cooper Regrets Calling Trump an 'Obese Turtle' - Find Out Why

Anderson Cooper is speaking out to explain why he now regrets calling Donald Trump an “obese turtle” while live on CNN this week.

The 53-year-old CNN anchor reacted to Trump‘s wild speech on Thursday by saying, “That is the President of the United States. That is the most powerful man in the world and we see him like an obese turtle on his back, flailing in the hot sun, realizing his time is over.”

The comment was brought up on Saturday (November 7) while Anderson interviewed former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang about the news of Biden‘s victory.

Yang said, “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.”

Anderson responded by saying, “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.”
