Please Be Patient, Donald Trump's Damning Anti-Clinton Page Is Under Construction
Today, Donald Trump announced the creation of LyingCrookedHillary.com, a new website documenting how, “at every stage of her career,” his opponent “has deceived the public to enrich herself and family at the expense of Americans.” That may or may not be true, but for now, you’ll just have to take his word for it: As of Tuesday evening, the site is just a landing page.
With less than $1.3 million on hand compared to Hillary Clinton’s $42.4 million war chest, the Trump campaign found themselves in an unenviable position going into June. According to The Washington Post, it’s about to get worse. Last week, Clinton aides told the paper they planned to spend at least $10 million on TV ads over the next six weeks.
In comparison, Trump spent a paltry $150,000 on ad buys in May, proudly relying on the free airtime he attracts instead. Even in the low-cost realm of online promotion, however, the Trump camp lags behind. Tuesday morning, Clinton launched “The Art of the Steal,” her second anti-Trump website. That afternoon, the Trump campaign fired back by revealing they, uh, bought a domain name.

Unfortunately, Trump wasn’t able to get CrookedHillary.com—his preferred moniker for the presumptive Democratic nominee—another enterprising individual having registered the domain back in April. Fortunately, it’s currently for sale. Maybe negotiate a deal?
