Eric Bolling & Greta van Susteren get hacked on Twitter. Even more alarming, their DMs are leaked to media

Tuesday was NOT a good day to be a former Fox News anchor with a Twitter account who may or may not have inadvertently run afoul of some angry Turkish hackers.

Either that, or Greta Van Susteren and Eric Bolling have a whole other life we’re only just now finding out about…

No, it’s not an episode of “Homeland,” just a run of the mill hacking by Turks with way too much time on their hands.

Instead of the usual political stuff, the conservative former Fox News host started treating her 1.2 million followers to one pro-Turkey tweet after another on Tuesday, mixed in with a few Turkish rap videos and an “I love Turkey” message with a heart emoji.

How sweet.

Bolling’s account retweeted a Van Susteren hacked message that said, “We love the Turks and Muslims in the world. We condemn those who persecute them, especially in the United States, and we share their suffering . We love turkish soldiers , we love Erdoğan, we love Turkey.”

Here’s another, er, rough translation:

One of the tweets from Van Susteren’s account reads (in English): “You are hacked by the Turkish cyber army Ayyıldız Tim! We got your DM correspondence! We will show you your Turk’s power! (You are hacked by the Turkish cyber army Ayyıldız Tim! We will show you the power of the Turk!”

The “power of the Turk” was apparently as advertised. The account then tweeted a DM message from itself to none other than President Trump, who follows both accounts.

Not … at … all…

All’s well that ends well, for Van Susteren first, then Bolling, who both tweeted late Tuesday that they finally got their accounts back.
