Thursday evening, President Trump continued making false voter fraud allegations while speaking at a press conference from the White House. And CNN’s election panel was quick to condemn the president’s unsubstantiated claims.
“That is the president of the United States,” said Anderson Cooper, following the speech. “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.”
Not only did Anderson Cooper have harsh words for Trump, prominent members of the GOP, like former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, also could not support the president’s dangerous message.
“Much of that statement was not factual and was at times incendiary and not something that a president of the United States should say,” said Santorum, “For the president to go out there and claim that without any evidence of that is dangerous.”
