Loser.com redirects to Iowa nonwinner Donald Trump

Technically Incorrect: It can't be easy for a man who has tweeted that coming second is coming nowhere to now be associated with losing.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.


Donald Trump

Hoisted by his own petard?

I wonder if Donald Trump is lost in thought today.

Many had predicted that he'd win the Iowa Republican caucus. He came second, however. And to quote one of the great man's tweets from 2014, "No one remembers who came in second." -- Walter Hagen."

Trump is unforgettable, though. Especially now that the owners of Loser.com have decided that their URL should link directly to Donald Trump's Wikipedia page.

This isn't the first time Loser.com has mischievously pointed visitors toward those who have not quite succeeded -- at least in its eyes.

It has previously attached its domain to President Barack Obama, Kanye West and Al Gore. To Reddit too.

It's unclear who owns the URL. The Washington Post tracked its history through many guises but didn't find today's proprietor.

For his part, Trump has been somewhat fond of using the term "loser" to describe people whom he seems not to like or respect. Or perhaps those who are "unfair" to him.

These include political operative Karl Rove ("a total loser!"), Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban (merely "a loser") and comedian and actor Russell Brand ("a major loser").

But how does the man himself feel about Loser.com's diss? Trump didn't immediately reply to a request for comment.

He has spent his Twitter time today complaining that the media hasn't covered him "fairly." He also wants to be given credit for self-funding his campaign -- which some say isn't quite entirely self-funded.

Still, those who believe in Trump as our national savior might offer him this advice: 'Tis better to have huffed and lost, than never to have huffed at all."
