JebBush.com redirects to Trump, but for a real kick, click on TedCruzForAmerica.com
The Internet Archive’s “Wayback Machine” tells us that as early as Dec. 8, visitors to JebBush.com were being redirected to the campaign website for fellow Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. But most netizens seem to be just catching wind of the prank now and are seizing the opportunity to mock an already-struggling campaign.
The official Bush campaign website is Jeb2016.com, so the current redirect is not a result of hacking, but rather of a prescient purchase that may have been made before either Bush or Trump declared their candidacies.
Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks told the Wall Street Journal that they’re not responsible for JebBush.com, though no doubt they’re quietly thanking whoever is. (The page’s current owner has been kept private by domain registrar Fabulous.com.)
