The commentator, Van Jones, said the instantly memorable remark in response to Donald Trump's refusal to say whether he would accept the results of the election if he lost.
“This is a really sad night. I’m just gonna say it. This is a very sad night for the country. You can’t polish this turd," Jones said.
"Technically you cannot polish any turd," CNN's Anderson Cooper helpfully pointed out.
