CNN’s Anderson Cooper did an interview Saturday with failed 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Andrew Yang.  It was just after media outlets declared Joe Biden the victor of the 2020 presidential election.  During the interview, Yang made this comment to Cooper: “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.  

Yang was referencing the comments Cooper had made about President Trump on Thursday, just after Trump had addressed the nation and commented on potential election fraud.  

After Lang’s comment Cooper apologized for calling President Trump “an obese turtle on his back, flailing in the hot sun.” Cooper said, “By the way, I should say I regret using those words because that’s not the person I really want to be.  “It was in the moment, and I regret it.”

Cooper has spent the last four years making negative comments about the most powerful man in the world.  What he actually said on Thursday was “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.” 

In my opinion I believe the apology was warranted and he should be ashamed of himself for making such an asinine comment about a sitting President.
