Anderson Cooper’s Twitter account tweeted an anti-Trump message last night and he’s claiming he was hacked. It’s a little hard to believe because everyone knows Cooper can’t stand Trump, like pretty much everyone else at his network.
The Hill reports:
Anderson Cooper says Twitter account hacked after tweet calling Trump a ‘pathetic loser’
CNN host Anderson Cooper is claiming he was hacked after his Twitter account responded to a tweet from President Trump by 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.”…
Cooper also said he “woke up to find out someone gained access” to his Twitter account.
“Just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account,” Cooper tweeted.
“I have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.”

CNN is backing him up, of course:
This morning someone gained access to the handle @andersoncooper and replied to POTUS. We're working with Twitter to secure the account.
