According to The Hill, Donald Trump is releasing a new website:
Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump announced on Tuesday the launch of a new website targeting presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
The website, lyingcrookedhillary.com, will “showcase some of Clinton’s most disastrous lies to the American people,” according to a release from the Trump campaign.
The website will be rolled out in the coming days over social media and emails to the candidate’s supporters.
Hmmm, sounds interesting. I wonder what all he will showcase? I mean we should inform the electorate, right? Even Trump says that:
As we proceed forward with the general election, it is more important than ever for America to realize how dishonest Crooked Hillary really is,” the Trump campaign said in a news release.
YES! Important information becoming available for the electorate to make an informed decision. Awesome! So, let’s head over there and see what we got:
WHATTTTTTT? In order to get this important information, I have to text a code to Trump’s SMS service? You mean, let him get my number so he can start spamming me, right?

Ohhh, so this site, that wants me to send a text from my cell to their number doesn’t even have public registration information? Yes, Trump actually paid extra to hide the registration information when they registered the domain through godaddy.com.
So go ahead and risk it if you want, but I’ll try to keep the spam on my text messages to a minimum, especially when I have no way to actually verify the website.
