Prankster redirects JebBush.com to Donald Trump’s campaign website

Since the Republican presidential race began, Jeb Bush has been dropping in the polls. Now, to add insult to injury, someone has registered JebBush.com and redirected it to Donald Trump’s website. 
Typing “JebBush.com” in your URL field will give a jarring result – it takes you straight to Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s website.

It turns out that the Bush campaign never used the JebBush.com URL, opting to use Jeb2016.com instead. But candidates typically buy unclaimed websites, since leaving them up for grabs has proven to be a liability to candidates in the past. TedCruz.com has been by pro-immigration activists, and CarlyFiorina.org was used to show how many people the former CEO laid off during her tenure at Hewlett-Packard.

The Trump campaign denied any involvement in the prank, according to CBS News.
