Anderson Cooper recently caused outrage when he fat-shamed President Trump during the presidential election.
Cooper went viral after he referred to the departing President as an “obese turtle on his back failing around in the hot sun.”
“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.”

But after sleeping on his comments, Cooper says he regrets what he said.
“That’s not the person I really want to be and it was in the heat of the moment and I regret it.”
“I should say, I regret using those words,”
