Anderson Cooper is no ally of President Trump’s, but most people could’ve assumed that considering he works for CNN. Now, Cooper is claiming his Twitter was hacked after a message was sent referring to 45 as a ‘pathetic loser.’
From The Hill:
CNN host Anderson Cooper is claiming he was hacked after his Twitter account responded to a tweet from President Trump, calling the president a “pathetic loser.”
Trump on Wednesday morning tweeted that GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore worked hard in the Alabama special election, but that the “deck was stacked against him.”
“The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!” Trump tweeted.
Cooper’s Twitter account said in response: “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”
CNN released this message:
This morning someone gained access to the handle @andersoncooper and replied to POTUS. We're working with Twitter to secure the account.

Breitbart has more:
This is yet another catastrophic blow to CNN’s credibility, a news outlet that indentifies as objective.
In the last 10 days alone, the last-place network has been forced to correct two major pieces of fake news: The claim that Attorney General Jeff Sessions violated protocol by not disclosing his contacts in the capacity of a sitting senator with Russian official, and one of the biggest boondoggles of the year (which is saying a lot); the false claim Donald Trump Jr. had early access to WikiLeaks documents, which would prove collusion with the Russians, or something.
Cooper’s inexcusable tweet is just more piece of proof that CNN has no legitimate editorial or ethical standards.
This doesn’t look good for Anderson.
How easy is it to hack into another person’s account? Why does stuff like this keep happening?
