Anderson Cooper

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper claims he was hacked after his Twitter account responded to a tweet from US President Donald Trump by calling him a "tool" and "pathetic loser".

Trump tweeted about Republican candidate Roy Moore's defeat in the Alabama special election to fill Jeff Sessions' now-vacant senate seat, stating that "the deck was stacked against" the judge, who was accused of harassing or molesting teenage girls in the past. Trump noted that he had first backed Roy Moore's primary opponent, Luther Strange.

"Oh Really? You endorsed him too!"

The tweet from Cooper's account also called Trump a "tool".
