Sen. Ted Cruz probably should have purchased a few specific domain names before Wednesday night.

Ted Cruz announced Austin-born and former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as his running mate on April 27, nearly three months before the Republican party’s national convention.

A new website, carlyfiorinaforvicepresident.com popped up soon after. But clicking or typing that URL into your browser redirects you to a very non-Carly Fiorina website:

The Planned Parenthood donation page redirect most certainly is in jest, as Fiorina very early on showed herself as anti-abortion.

Fiorina defined herself as staunchly opposed to Planned Parenthood when she said the organization was involved in trafficking aborted fetuses’ body parts — an accusation based off of videos made by The Center for Medical Progress, which have since been declared a hoax. A grand jury in Houston cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing and ended up indicting two anti-abortion activists for tampering governmental record.
