If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Donald Trump’s presidency thus far( and there’s a LOT ), it’s that he loves feeling superior to his predecessors, especially if it involves bashing them in hypocritical ways.
And he doesn’t just restriction himself to smack talking Barack Obama in the open, as Washington Post data reporter Christopher Ingraham recently discovered. While perusing some Trump administration and GOP websites, Ingraham observed a “bonus” feature, known as an Easter egg. Hidden in the code of action.donaldjtrump.com sites and even the official GOP homepage was a petty dig at Obama’s the amount of time spent golfing during his presidency.
“Oops! Something went wrong, ” it read. “Unlike Obama, we are working to fix the problem … and not on the golf course.” Included with the message is a 404 fault message stating, “What do Hillary Clinton and this connection have in common? They’re both dead broke.”
The website of Donald Trump, who has spent several days in a row at the golf course, is coded to serve up the following message in the event of an internal server error: https :// t.co/ zrWpyMXRcz pic.twitter.com/ wiQSQNNzw0

But funnily enough, Trump’s team couldn’t even get their try at an insult right, despite his penchant for litter talking. You watch, there was one little mistake that ensured the message would never be displayed. In a spot where there should have been two equal signs, “theres only” one.

Shortly after this snippet of code was made public, it was removed from the Trump and GOP websites. But let’s get into how it builds Trump incredibly hypocritical, shall we?
