You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.â€�Cooper eventually deleted the tweet and sent a new message, claiming he was asleep and â€œjust woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter site account.â€�â€œWe are looking in to how this happened,â€� he asserted shortly before CNN issued its own statement.â€œThis morning someone gained access to the handle @andersoncooper and replied to POTUS. We’re working with Twitter to secure the account,â€� CNN tweeted.Twitter declined comment when asked if the company was working with CNN to figure out who allegedly hacked Cooperâ€™s verified account. The- Twitter spokesman ignored several requests for additional information, referencing Fox News to CNNâ€™s communications team.CNN did not respond when asked if the alleged perpetrator was identified or if the investigation is still ongoing. CNN did eventually provide a acknowledgment to the Washington Post, claiming the tweet was sent from Cooperâ€™s assistantâ€™s phone after it was left unattended at a gym. While opinion hosts such as MSNBCâ€™s Rachel Maddow and Fox Newsâ€™ Sean Hannity bid scathing commentary on a normal basis, Anderson is portrayed as a down-the-middle newsman. He even moderated a 2016 presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton.Because of Cooperâ€™s alleged bi-partisanship, the initial tweet took the Internet by storm. Cooper is the face of CNN, the network in that has an ongoing argument with President Trump. While Trump frequently refers to CNN as â€œfake news,â€� a personal attack from the networkâ€™s biggest star would have presumably escalated the beef to new heights.Earlier this week, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shut down CNNâ€™s Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta when the reporter tried to hijack a press briefing with grandstanding â€“ which has become a signature move of Acosta.CNN moreover had to issue a correction on Friday after The- Washington Post debunked the network’s report claiming the Trump crusade had early, secret access to hacked DNC emails from WikiLeaks. The- network on Friday inaccurately trumpeted in that Congressional investigators obtained a puzzling 2016 email in that was sent to Trump and other top aides, in addition to Donald Trump Jr., which contained information on how to get a sneak peek at hacked information in that WikiLeaks had acquired. The- email, as CNN reported, offered a â€œdecryption keyâ€� to access the files â€“ yet the network botched the date on the email, rendering the whole entire report irrelevant.On Monday, CNN backtracked a report from earlier this year in that faulted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for failing to reveal meetings he had with Russian authorities when he applied for his security clearance â€“ a disclosure he wasnâ€™t required to make. CNN moreover was widely mocked on Monday morning for a segment on Trumpâ€™s soda intake amid developing breaking news related to the terror attack in New York City.Brian Flood covers the media for Fox News.
