Pre-Election Merriment with Trump and Jeb
My husband’s laughter spurred me to buy the donaldjtrump.bz domain in 2016. It was a Christmas present to me.
My Christmas tree decorated, I was loving the debates. Politics consumed the news cycle throughout the holidays with Bernie and Hillary and the eight remaining Republican presidential hopefuls, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Carly Florina, and Rand Paul.
Sudden merriment struck when Darrell heard the news that Trump had bought the jebbush.com domain and redirected it to Trump’s website.
When you type jebbush.com into the browser, up pops donaldjtrump.com. My husband thought that was a clever move by Trump.
So, while Darrell was still laughing about the Jeb-Trump news, I bought the domain DonaldJTrump.bz. I thought I would do as The Donald does.
Jeb Bush published his campaign news on Jeb2016.com, a website frozen in time. Evidently Jeb wished to distance himself from his Busch political heritage, and left his name-dot com up for sale.
Donald Trump was painfully aware of not owning his name dot com because donaldtrump.com was owned by a social e-zine that published news on the famous New Yorker. Out of necessity, Trump launched donaldjtrump.com and emphasized the “j” in his name to his loyal audience who wanted to follow him online.
Those were fun memories from a rugged political campaign.
Post Election and New POTUS
Donald John Trump is now President Of The United States. Although not an early supporter, I have chosen to jump on the Trump Express. I will hold on for dear life because I know this train will be derailed on occasion and will make unplanned stops.
Still, I believe President Trump is a patriot who will do his best to lead our nation.
I welcome debate and insight
As I grow the website, I hope to applaud the President’s accomplishments, note opposing views, post archived political clippings and cartoons, and include Civics 101.
UPDATE: Today, Donald Trump owns both donaldtrump.com and donaldjtrump.com. No doubt the purchase of donaldtrump.com was high dollar. Type donaldtrump.com into the search bar, and it reverts to donaldjtrump.com. The J is for John, my father’s name.
Today, jebbush.com is owned by a third party. Search it and get a list of articles related to Jeb Bush, such as, “Why Did Bush Drop Out,” which leads you down a rabbit hole.
