A CNN anchor called Donald Trump an ‘obese upturned turtle flailing in the sun’ and it made everyone’s day better
There are many ways of characterising Donald Trump’s behaviour right now but few – if any – do it quite so accurately, succinctly, and downright hilariously as this one.
It’s CNN’s Anderson Cooper talking to viewers after Trump’s extraordinary press conference in which he made barely coherent and increasingly desperate claims that electoral fraud was robbing him of a second White House term.
It went viral because, well, have a watch for yourself.

Jake Tapper: “What a sad night for the United States of America to hear their president say that”
Lester Holt: “We have to cut away here because the president has made a number of false allegations”

Okay. I think Anderson Cooper calling Trump an, "Obese turtle on his back" is CNN calling the election.

I think this is unfair to obese turtles on their backs, flailing at the hot sun. https://t.co/Ytez6N7H2a

This person surely speaks for us all …
I just fell in love with Anderson Cooper, when he gave the most perfect description of Trump. "We see him like an obese turtle on his back flailing in the hot sun, realizing his time is over." #TrumpMeltdown pic.twitter.com/E1fDyZOpFr
