JebBush.com Trumped: Redirects to DonaldJTrump.com
The Republican candidate famous for unorthodox techniques and a flair for the unfiltered has some passionate fans. One of them happens to own JebBush.com, and has dealt quite a rhetorical blow to rival candidate Jeb Bush by commandeering www.jebbush.com, and sending to Trump’s official page.
For much of the campaign season, the website bearing the Bush name remained either blank or staged as a plain promotional site. Until without fanfare… the domain recently made a bold change in direction, driving all traffic to Trump. It’s yet to be seen whether this was officially a Trump sanctioned move, since the domain is owned by Fabulous.com Pty Ltd. and according to multiple sources, Trump’s team is denying involvement.
Nevertheless, if you type www.jebbush.com in your browser… Trump’s iconic website appears, promising to “Make America Great Again”, brazenly redirecting Bush supports and gawking visitors to DonaldJTrump.com
As the debates heat up, marketing debacles are the last thing candidates want in the narrative. Let us know what you think, in the comments below… what’s the worst PR mistake you’ve seen in recent memory? Is this a meaningful blow to Jeb’s campaign, or simply a welcome bit of light distraction during a long political season?
