Donald Trump's website enjoyed a brief democracy

Here are some words I never thought I’d write: A thing associated with Donald Trump was fun. Here are some worlds I have written ad nauseam over the last few months: Donald Trump ruins everything.

Earlier today, blogger Andy Baio tweeted about a neat trick on Donald Trump’s official website. By swapping over to the site’s press release page and fiddling with the URL, you could turn the site into a mouthpiece for whatever you wanted, like so:

Fun with URL hacking.

But, like all things related to Trump, this too ended in sadness. The site will no longer regurgitate your taglines, no matter how great they may be. The header text has been stripped out entirely. Sad!

We’ll always have the pictures. At least this garbage election is almost over.
