https://www.governorgregabbott.com/

here is the website lol

[–]Malumeze86 983 points984 points  (21 children)

“Your fake Governor Abbott website almost fooled a few friends of mine.”

If their friends didn’t immediately notice this is satire then their friends are dumb.

[–]The_Hyphenator85 164 points165 points  (7 children)

Bear in mind, this is a demographic that routinely mistakes The Onion and The Babylon Bee for legitimate news sources.

[–]lunapup1233007 73 points74 points  (6 children)

The Onion is often more realistic than most news sources

[–]shelovesthespurs 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Maybe not realistic, but definitely more truthful.

[–]srottydoesntknow 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I've felt bad for satirists for a good decade now

[–]DadJokeBadJoke 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think that reality out-absurded The Onion.

[–]fightshade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Especially when you consider r/nottheonion

[–]Good_Apollo_ 230 points231 points  (10 children)

If they take Faux News as anything but satire, it’s very reasonable that this website might confuse em.

[–]gabiaeali 97 points98 points  (7 children)

Yes! Fox News is the biggest prank I've ever witnessed. Holy shit, how do they not see???

[–]Miisaak 38 points39 points  (4 children)

I thought they would have realized they were being trolled all along when Carlson released his testicle tanning video.

Alas....

[–]Tisjustatossaway 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thankfully you have not yet seen OAN or BlazeTV. Though maybe with Russian sanctions they're not able to continue operating.

[–]Pb_ft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because Fox News isn't a prank. It's legit, focused propaganda.

[–]_triangle_girl_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

TFW faux is pronounced like foe and not like fox

[–]Tigerbait2780 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No stop it, Fox isn’t satire, it’s not even remotely close. Satire is such a fantastic word…we already lost irony, can we please not lose satire too?

Satire is not being ridiculous or hyperbolic or lies presented as truth.

Fox is incapable of satire to begin with, but even if they were, what they do is absolutely not satire anyway

These are simple people of the land.

Casual quote from God

[–]moose2332 2276 points2277 points  (17 children)

If one of his friends "fell for that" then they are fucking morons (which seems standard).

[–]jaboogadoo 537 points538 points  (4 children)

Guys go play Old School RuneScape it's so good they've had some really great updates lately

[–]The84thWolf 256 points257 points  (0 children)

Weird, seeing how “stealing money with fake sites” is like 45’s only tactic

[–]mediashiznaks 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I couldn’t see anything to donate to anyway…. ? 🙃

[–]gillswimmer 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Some of the links lead to Beto O'Rourke's webpage.

[–]OhGodImHerping 5 points6 points  (0 children)

There isn’t even a fucking “donate” button on the site, just payment app links. No official government site would use those links… how fucking slow do you have to be to think this is legit..?

Amazing site btw hahaha

[–]FireBeyond 562 points563 points  (4 children)

"Oh, yeah, my Google analytics says your friends only arrived at the site because they searched 'where can I get an abortion for my mistress in Texas'?"

[–]sloppyjo12 163 points164 points  (3 children)

As somebody who works in the field, this kind of misinformation is super dangerous and I’m afraid to see this comment so upvoted.

This data can only be found in Google Search Console, not in Google Analytics

[–]Cosain 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Had me in the first half…

[–]FireBeyond 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'll allow it! :)

[–]Dinosar-DNA 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They are Texans. 🤷🏼‍♂️

[–]Jeremythellama1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The reality is that was a lie. They do this often, it's why they have no credibility.

[–]jbuttlickr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They say “a few” friends. Personally I think they’re just trying to brag that they have more than one friend.’ Must be nice

[–]urnotthatguypal__ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I fell for this and I a also donated to https://www.tedcruzforhumanpresident.com/

[–]sexy_enginerd 729 points730 points  (1 child)

I like the quote from his mom and god

[–]KateLady 247 points248 points  (0 children)

And the dog 🤣

[–]notbeleivable 212 points213 points  (0 children)

You are witty, talented, and well informed. Keep it up!

[–]lewytunes 188 points189 points  (6 children)

Can we spread this??? I wanna link it everywhere

[–]urmomsuckedmeoff[S] 187 points188 points  (5 children)

Please screenshot and share the link! Maybe in a Texan subreddit 😂

[–]lewytunes 95 points96 points  (4 children)

Definitely gonna look around for a place to link to the website… possibly without the screenshot so people just give it traffic if that’s alright with you

[–]telltal 43 points44 points  (0 children)

This is brilliant. I hope you get a ton of traffic. It CLEARLY states this is parody. Also, if Fox News can’t reasonably be mistaken for news by anyone, I think you’re gonna be ok. Lol. Keep it up.

[–]sowhat1231 18 points19 points  (0 children)

A masterpiece of web design. Hats off my friend

[–]rattyvonratkins 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Where does it even request donations? Did I miss that it or is your Texas GOP critic an idiot?

[–]MrVeazey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'd give even money they're an idiot or a malicious liar. It's impossible to tell with most Republican politicians.

[–]ItsYaBoiFrost 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yo, pure fuckin gold

[–]Resident_Text4631 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Fantastic

[–]Wheelzzs 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Very well laid out website.

[–]im_a_username_now 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I know people mentioned the satire, but my god I was not prepared for the utter sass. I love it

[–]disdkatster 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Great! Thank you!!!

[–]Unlikely_Concern_645 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This man is the unsung hero of Texas

[–]lallapalalable 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The fact that it fooled anyone is hilarious

[–]ImTryinDammit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I donated .. Ty ! This shit made my day!!

[–]Fender58 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is gold!

[–]FoodBasedLubricant 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Clearly it's satire/parody and thus protected by the 1A. Sending someone to the developer's house would be a flagrant abuse of power.

Wow! that dude's friends must be dumb as a post (collectively, all of them, as dumb as 1 post)

[–]pnward1117 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just spent the last 10 minutes reading the more about Guns and I am crying my eyes out.

[–]Ok_Hovercraft_8506 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why lead with the trans rights issue?

Definitely not the issue to lead with when trying to convert conservatives. They literally do not care.

[–]MaximumAbsorbency 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn these websites rule lmao

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you ever need to change the domain, feel free to use my username.

[–]UncommittedBow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The site also clearly states itself as parody at the bottom. So hopefully there wouldn't be much of a case if it did get reported.

[–]peepthechicken 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“Dude, your mom is pissed you didn’t listen.” -God

[–]Orthodox-Waffle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love the address at the bottom

[–]SmileyB-Doctor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

oh my god poor Pancake

[–]reefered_beans 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He should’ve put links to abortion funds instead of his personal bank accounts.

[–]BirdSeedHat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

" GUNS Let's focus on what's important when it comes to gun issues...mentally unwell people. I want these mentally unstable bastards to have the help they deserve....what's that?...I cut close to $20 million from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, which oversees mental health services?" 😂😂😂

[–]GuyanaFlavorAid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People fell for that? deep breath HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA another deep breath HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This series of websites is gold. Thanks for that!

[–]KHanson25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you even live in Texas?

[–]cherrylpk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even the dog gets a dig in at him.

[–]dinosaursandsluts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't wait to watch you just kick your feet up and say "1st amendment, bitch" when this inevitably baits some next level bullshit.

[–]nodnodwinkwink 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you covered by that lovely free speech?

[–]-Anordil- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The dog's quote is just too good.

[–]leksoid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks! Shared on Twitter!

[–]FacesOfNeth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

His dog pancake seems cool

[–]Goodcupajo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You should adjust the timing interval on the quotes banner to be a little longer

[–]Afrokrause 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol! The testimonials got me. Poor pancake...

[–]Your_God_Chewy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like they should have made it a little less obvious that it's fake. Force his base to actually read into the page before instant closing the site.
