JebBush.com sends users to a surprising page

Posted at 9:04 AM, Feb 16, 2016

JebBush.com has apparently been hijacked by Donald Trump supporters.

The web address redirects users to DonaldJTrump.com, the official website of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

The redirect to Trump's website has been active since at least Dec. 7, 2015, when MSNBC first reported on it. But Trump's campaign has denied any role in managing the JebBush.com domain name. According to CBS News, an Australian company owns the website.

Trump's GOP presidential opponent Jeb Bush has apparently not used JebBush.com during his current campaign. Instead, Bush uses the web address Jeb2016.com as his official website.

In similar news, the web address Loser.com redirected users to Trump's Wikipedia page earlier this month. That address has since been updated to redirect users to rapper Kanye West's Wikipedia page.
