It seems that whenever there is a Presidential election in the US, there are people who call for the President’s impeachment. We are at a divisive time in US history, and despite the fact that President Donald Trump has been in office less than a month, there are people who would like to see the President impeached. For those who are on that side, the perfect domain name is in auction right now.
The ImpeachTrump.com domain name is currently in auction at GoDaddy Auctions. There have been two bids placed in the auction, and the current high bid is already at $1,524. The starting bid was $1,499. There is approximately one day remaining in the auction. There does not appear to be a reserve price that I can see, so it looks like the high bidder will win the auction.
This is not a typical expiring domain name auction at GoDaddy as ImpeachTrump.com does not expire until January of 2018. Interestingly, ImpeachTrump.com was registered long before Donald Trump even took office! ImpeachTrump.com has a creation date of January of 2011. I guess the person who registered this domain name thought that if Donald Trump were ever elected to be President, this domain name could become valuable. The domain name is privately registered, so the current registrant of the domain name is not known to me.
On the other side of the aisle, the ImpeachClinton.com domain name was registered back in 2010. US President Bill Clinton was impeached back in 1998. I presume had Hillary Clinton been elected President, the ImpeachClinton.com domain name would have held more value today. I can’t imagine that the ImpeachClinton.com domain name will ever have more than historical value unless another Clinton is elected President.
With one day to go in the ImpeachTrump.com auction, I would not be surprised to see this domain name sell for quite a bit more money. I am sure there are plenty of groups who would like to own and use this domain name, and there is still a lot of money in politics.
