For someone who seems to have difficulty holding a glass of water, President Trump sure can hold onto a grudge! It's been more than a year since he was elected president, and yet he still tweets almost constantly about both his opponent Hillary Clinton and his predecessor President Obama. It's decidedly not a good look...but then again, he's never really been one for fashion, either.
This week, someone discovered that some pages on Trump's RNC-sponsored website include a dig at Barack Obama.
Yesterday, if you pulled up the source code of some of Donald Trump's web pages, you'd see this...er...fascinating error message.
The website of Donald Trump, who has spent several days in a row at the golf course, is coded to serve up the follo… https://t.co/3u0XGuWjgz— Christopher Ingraham (@Christopher Ingraham)1514489336.0
This sneaky insult was present on several of Trump's web pages, including the GOP.com homepage.
That snippet of code appears to be on all https://t.co/dkhw0AlHB4 pages, which the footer says is paid for by the R… https://t.co/BHxl0Tcdfs— Christopher Ingraham (@Christopher Ingraham)1514490748.0
And yes, there's an insult for Hillary Clinton, too.Another error message reads, "What do Hillary Clinton and this link have in common? They’re both dead broke." (Is now a good time to bring up the fact that Trump has declared bankruptcy on six separate occasions? No? OK. Then we will refrain.)
Obviously, these are very, very hilarious insults.From the mind who brought us nicknames like "Liddle Bob Corker" and "Crooked Hillary" comes...a dig about playing golf? Great. Like we said, hilarious.
We imagine the coders looked something like this as they snuck those insults into the website code.This move is almost as petty as trying to block someone's view of the president's golf game by hiring a giant truck to park on the sidewalk. Which is also something Donald Trump did. There was just one tiny problem with the coded insult. Actually, it was a pretty big problem...
It wasn't written correctly, so those hilarious insults were never even displayed.

But it gets even sweeter! Back when Trump just a presidential candidate, he attacked the healthcare.gov website and claimed that it wasn't worth the money being put into it.

There's also some great irony in the fact that Donald Trump is taking a dig at Obama's golfing habit.

Anyway, cool job, Mr. Trump.You sure did stick it to the haters, huh? Except for that whole "it didn't even work" thing. Bummer. At least now the world finally knows just how committed you are to insulting people. You know, in case they couldn't tell from your Twitter feed.
Alas, it appears that the code has since been deleted from Trump's web pages.
That suggests someone at either RNC or the Trump admin is sensitive enough to Trump's golf problem to make this iss… https://t.co/c216ndJKmc— Christopher Ingraham (@Christopher Ingraham)1514521240.0
