The Washington Examiner, a conservative American political journalism website and weekly magazine, has tweeted out a scathing post on President Donald Trump declaring that the president is “going to hell,” before hitting out at the paper itself for promoting him.
“Trump is going to hell,” the tweet, posted on Monday just after 1a.m. ET reads. “Anyone who ever read the bible can tell you where it stands on rich adulterers.”
Twitter users have already begun speculating about the post, with some suggesting that the Washington Examiner’s Twitter account might have been hacked, while others have conjectured that the post may have come from a disgruntled employee.
The tweet has been deleted but at this writing there’s been no explanation from the Examiner.

UPDATE: They’re claiming to have been hacked.
The Washington Examiner’s Twitter feed was hacked and a tweet was posted that did not come from our staff. We are taking appropriate action and will issue a further statement if necessary.
