Original piece below….
CNN’s Anderson Cooper publicly taunted and insulted President Trump as a “tool” and “pathetic loser” Wednesday morning.
Cooper, who is a primetime anchor and the face of the left-wing cable news network CNN, blasted the president personally using his verified Twitter account. Cooper was responding to one of the president’s own tweet about Tuesday’s Alabama Senate Election.
“The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily),” Trump wrote, “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!”
Responding directly and almost immediately, Cooper wrote, “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”

This is yet another catastrophic blow to CNN’s credibility, a news outlet that indentifies as objective.
In the last 10 days alone, the last-place network has been forced to correct two major pieces of fake news: The claim that Attorney General Jeff Sessions violated protocol by not disclosing his contacts in the capacity of a sitting senator with Russian official, and one of the biggest boondoggles of the year (which is saying a lot); the false claim Donald Trump Jr. had early access to WikiLeaks documents, which would prove collusion with the Russians, or something.
Overall, due to countless lies and trolling, CNN is now widely regarded as a left-wing disinformation outlet. Even those who do not care for Trump, feel CNN is unreliable.
Cooper’s inexcusable tweet is just more piece of proof that CNN has no legitimate editorial or ethical standards.
