Colorado GOP claims someone hacked their Twitter account to post anti-Trump tweet

Published

on

A spokesperson for the Colorado GOP claimed someone gained “unauthorized access” to their Twitter account, and posted a anti-Trump message following results showing Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s victory in the state over the New Yorker late Saturday.

Cruz swept up all 13 of the delegates in Colorado on Saturday to complete a clean sweep of the state. Delegates endorsed by his campaign took seven spots at the Congressional District conventions held over the last week as well, which added another 21 delegates.

Following the announcement of the results, a tweet from the Colorado GOP account went out reading: “We did it. #Never Trump.”

The #NeverTrump campaign is the work of Republican activists who fear the party will be devastated if the New York developer is the party’s presidential nominee in November.

The tweet was swiftly pulled down after being shared thousands of times online.

It was replaced by one reading, “The last tweet was the result of unauthorized access to our account and in no way represents the opinion of the party. We are investigating.”

The Twitter account, with over 6,000 followers, has been silent since then.

"Please don’t bring European-style socialism to America," Luntz pleaded.

I’m at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria. Almost 200 rooms… But the elevator has been broken for 3 days.

Columnists bid a brutal farewell to ‘sneering’ Sarah Sanders: Her ‘awfulness was a thing to behold’

Published

on

On Tuesday, New York Times columnists Gail Collins and Bret Stephens discussed the departure of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who they agreed was one of the worst press secretaries in modern times.

"She brought us back to the bad old days when women were supposed to be seen and not heard, but lately she wasn't seen all that much either," said Collins. "Who would want to go down in history as the press secretary who got rid of the press briefing?"
