Anderson Cooper’s Bizarre Excuse for His Anti-Trump Tweet

On December 12, 2017, Doug Jones became the first Democrat to win a senate seat in the state of Alabama in two decades. Needless to say, the stunning victory stirred people up on both sides of the political aisle.

As is his custom, President Trump took to Twitter to voice his opinion about the race. According to TheBlaze, the President tweeted, “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!”

The events that transpired next were bizarre to say the least.

In response to the president, a tweet posted from CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s account said, “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”

The critical tweet was deleted. However, screenshots have made the rounds on social media. On December 13, 2017, Cooper acknowledged the controversial tweet on Twitter. The CNN anchor explained that he had just woke up and found someone had gained access to his Twitter account. Cooper adamantly claimed he had neither sent any tweets nor replied to any tweets in days. He also said that people were looking into how the derogatory tweet about President Trump was sent.

Later in the morning, CNN released a statement on the matter, claiming the tweet was sent by a person who stole the phone of one of Cooper’s assistants.

“Geolocation tools confirm that the tweet in question was not sent from Anderson Cooper’s phone. Anderson was in Washington, and we have proof the tweet was sent from New York, from a phone belonging to his assistant,” CNN said in a press release.

The network, which has been famously dubbed “fake news” by Trump several times over, explained that Cooper’s trusted assistant for more than a decade accidentally left his phone unlocked and unattended while he was working out at a gym early on the morning of December 13. Supposedly, the phone caper also sent the tweet.

Obviously, not everyone believed the strange explanation of how the tweet originated. Sonny Bunch, executive editor at the Washington Free Beacon, hilariously confessed to the crime in a tweet.

“I did the tweet from Anderson Cooper’s account,” he said. “I snuck into the gym and opened the locker and broke the code on the phone and did the tweet and then high-fived everyone in the gym and they all kept quiet about it. It was worth it, even if I go to Gitmo.”

Cooper isn’t the first liberal to claim his Twitter account was hacked. On May 27, 2011, former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner infamously utilized his public Twitter account to send a vulgar photo to a young woman. Claiming his account was hacked, Weiner tried to shift the blame to a possible political opponent. Ironically, on May 19 of this year, the embattled former Congressman plead guilty to a single count of transferring obscene material to a minor. He began serving a 21 month prison sentence on November 6, 2017.

Certainly, CNN’s account of the tweet might be 100 percent factual. However, doubters will likely point to Cooper’s disdainful comments about President Trump in the past. On October 13, 2017, Cooper was especially concerned with President Barack Obama’s legacy. The news anchor felt President Trump was doing everything in his power to destroy it. While on the air, Cooper said, “Never though have we seen a president so seemingly bent on reversing, negating, even obliterating his predecessor’s signature accomplishments.” He went on to state, “What may be surprising though, or at least is being widely debated, is how much of this is personal.”

On August 22, 2017, President Trump spoke at a campaign rally at Phoenix, Arizona. The event was held mere days after a car plowed into a crowd of protestors at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia that claimed the life of one. In a tweet the following day, Cooper said, “Last night, what we saw was all about him…Donald Trump: the world’s biggest victim, trapped inside the body of the world’s most powerful man.”

  1. I think Anderson Cooper’s bias has outlived its time. CNN must move on from its negative vitriol, fire Coop and begin a new era of historic support for the Republican team, Tell your failing Clinton teams to take a hike and start being truthful and responsible once more. Your rating certainly speaks to this move as well.

  2. Yea, like I’m going to believe any of that. Cooper is a pos. No ifs, ands or butts about it.
    What the President said is a fact, I distinctly remember him saying it during the Moore Strange run off.
    Pos Cooper, I’m totally done with you now. Sixty mins. needs to replace your sorry useless ass once and for all. Good bye Mr. Fake news

  3. We have cancelled our newspaper, and stopped watching any channel except Fox. Tired of being lied to and paying someone to do it!!

    • I am with you there. My local paper subscription is up in less than thirty days and I refuse to renew it. Nothing but liberal garbage in it and on the news channels also. I also watch Fox news for fair coverage..

  4. ANDERSON COOPER “THE PETERPUFFER” who cares what he says or thinks. Go find obummer and get on your knees “PETERPUFFER!

  5. I completely agree that Cooper is a complete and total asswipe, always was, always will be. What I don’t agree with is insulting an entire group of people based on their sexual orientation. Before anyone jumps the gun and thinks I’m gay and that’s why I’m saying this, know that I am a wife and mother to 3 fantastic children and I’m 100% heterosexual. Cooper needs to go bc he’s a turd, not bc he’s gay, bi, trans, whatever!

  6. Isn’t he what SnowFlakes call “WHITE PRIVELEGE”? Born filthy rich, not really spreading his wealth, but dictating Leftist’s policies to Americans. He needs to be “broke” and really work for a living. Man-up you sissy, you’re an XY despite your XX envy. You can “slice & dice” your body, but you can’t really change its origin.

  7. Why would everyone here only listen to Fox News? You don’t have to trust the news, but shouldn’t you fact-check what both sides are saying? Every citizen should know how to do that – and also should realize that opinions are NOT facts! Don’t turn into a bunch of brainwashed zombies who believe everything rich guy Rupert Murdock tells you to think. (Since you mock Cooper for being rich, shouldn’t you be consistent?). It is also concerning to read the anti-gay rhetoric. It has been my experience that those who scream about it the most are usually closeted/in denial gays themselves. Just sayin….

  8. Anderson Cooper is just another puppet trapped by the all lying, perfidious communist ideology. His opinion about President Trump has been kidnapped by this irrational, no grounds hatred towards a man who has done nothing but show his patriotism and love for his country. I got news for you Cooper: Our President is not alone!
