Twitter posters lampooned the almost-immediate crash of the Republican National Committee's website after President Donald Trump's "Fake News Awards" were unveiled.

The GOP website displayed an error message and appeared to crash from high traffic, displaying the error message: "The site is temporarily offline, we are working to bring it back up. Please try back later."

Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" joked about the sad news and empty page:

While NBC News correspondent Micah Grimes played on Trump's MAGA slogan:

Politico's Jason Schwartz recalled another embarrassing moment in entertainment history:

While poster Matthew Yglesias joked about the "cheapened spirit" of the awards:

Commentator for The Hill, Joe Concha, wondered about the possibility of a "fake server."

And Los Angeles Times correspondent Allison Wisk let the 404 speak for itself.
