It’s the election gift that keeps on giving and we’re sure people wish they found this glitch earlier; Some clever coders have figured out that you can make Donald Trump’s website say whatever you like by typing %20 into the URL.
The code generates a new webpages on Trump’s site by manipulating its URL structure. The pages are “real,” but Trump’s campaign was not responsible for their creation and the actual press releases on the page haven’t been changed. It just’s a new banner over the same archive of press releases.
During the first Presidential debate, Trump accused Clinton of lying about Russian hackers being behind the DNC hack: “She’s saying Russia, Russia, Russia… It could also be China… It could also be somebody sitting on their bed who weighs 400 pounds. You don’t know who hacked into the DNC.” The irony isn’t lost here.
