If you're fast enough, you'll see this:


Following the real-estate billionaire and presumptive frontrunner's less-than-tremendous second-place finish behind Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the Iowa Republican presidential caucus, web users who try to access loser.com are now being redirected to Donald Trump's Wikipedia page.

It's a reference to Trump's well-known habit of calling people he disagrees with "losers." A catalog of Trump's Twitter insults kept by the New York Times lists Jeb Bush, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, conservative political pundit S.E. Cupp, former presidential advisor Karl Rove, ISIS, and Politico as all having been deemed "losers" by Trump.

A domain registration search revealed few clues as to the identity of the site's owner.

Sure, the prank may be kicking Trump while he's down, but as Trump himself is fond of reminding his supporters, losers are losers.

If it's any consolation for Trump, though, the domain JebBush.com continues to redirect to Trump's own campaign site. Eh, it's probably not.
