Anderson Cooper Blame My Assistant ... For Anti-Trump Tweet

Anderson Cooper called President Trump a Anderson Cooper called President Trump a"Pathetic loser- or so about 10 million people thought for an hour Wednesday morning

Trump tweeted that the "deck was stacked" against Roy Moore in the Alabama special election - which Moore lost - and claimed he said that Moore would "not be able to win the General Election".

A reply from Cooper's Twitter account stated, "Oh Really?" You endorsed him you tool!

"Pathetic loser." This tweet was deleted a few hours later, and a second tweet was posted by Cooper stating that someone had "gained access" to his account and that he has "not sent a tweet in days".

CNN's communications team issued a statement on Twitter as well, backing up Cooper's explanation that an unauthorised person gained control of his account.

The tweet immediately caught the eye of ecstatic Twitter users with many praising Cooper for standing up to the president. Smartphones are frequently locked with a passcode or fingerprint ID.

I finished shooting of my portions for the film (on Friday) and now the shoot of " Fanne Khan " has been completed from my side. So for me, Dutt biopic is more about Raju Hirani and of course, Raju Hirani and Vinod Chopra is the lethal combination.

In a statement Wednesday afternoon, CNN clarified that Cooper did not tweet the message. "We're working with Twitter to secure the account", the cable network said. "Pathetic loser", read the tweet.

And a hack is what CNN's PR attributed the tweet to later in the morning.

After the post was removed, CNN confirmed that Cooper's account had been hacked. His assistant inadvertently left his phone unlocked and unattended at the gym early this morning, and someone took the phone and sent the tweet. "We are looking into how this happened".

Was Anderson Cooper hacked on Twitter?
