Someone with access to the official state DHEC Twitter account wondered to all 5,900 of the government account's followers "what a fucking tool" the president is yesterday.

Other elected officials speculated whether the account was "hacked," though it's not clear why. Source: @lukereasoner, @scdhec, Greenville News
