Trump Accuses Google Of Rigging Searches

The moron in the Oval Office watched “Lou Dobbs” last night and got a bee in his bonnet about the Google search results for “Trump News.”

Trump is complaining that the voices of conservative liars should be getting equal time with actual news.

For me, the best response to Trump is this…. 

This is why Google should be returning the searches of notable news outlets (the MSM). 

Here’s the full response from Google:

When users type queries into the Google Search bar, our goal is to make sure they are receive the most relevant answers in a matter of seconds. Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology. Every year, we issue hundreds of improvements to our algorithms to ensure they surface high-quality content in response to users’ queries. We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment

Look what garbage news is out there:

Furthermore, according to a conspiracy theory network popular among some Trump boosters, when McCain supposedly died on Saturday, he did not succumb to cancer but took his own life to avoid being hauled off to Guantanamo Bay and put before a military tribunal for his longtime work helping Islamic State terrorists and others. (And before he died, he concealed his criminal ankle bracelet by wearing a medical boot on his leg.)

Unless, of course, the suicide, like the cancer, was just a ruse. In that case, McCain will continue to work secretly for the deep state and for the Clinton Foundation.

And stuff like this is not uncommon…

And these two example are just from TODAY.

So I don’t suspect that Trump’s attempt to put “right-wing media” on the same plane as accurate media is going to work too well.

Hell, we even had Giuliani admitting in an interview this weekend that he is DELIBERATELY trying to undermine the truth and create an alternative (false) narrative:

So how does Giuliani account for his often-bizarre advocacy for Trump? What to make of his frequent apparent missteps and goal-post moving? Doesn’t Giuliani care about consistency and providing an accurate accounting of the Russia investigation?
In a word: No. Giuliani doesn’t really care about all that.

Here’s the most telling part of the profile, to my mind:

Mr. Giuliani shrugged off suggestions that he was a discombobulated advocate, ill serving a client who happens to be the so-called leader of the free world. “You probably can’t do this without making a mistake or two,” he said, then quickly noted with evident satisfaction that “[Robert] Mueller is now slightly more distrusted than trusted, and Trump is a little ahead of the game.”

“So I think we’ve done really well,” said the president’s lawyer. “And my client’s happy.”

And there it is.

This is not the first time that Giuliani has copped publicly to the game he’s playing. He has admitted that he aims “to attack the legitimacy of the investigation” and said he’s mostly preparing for the potential impeachment battle lying ahead — given that it appears Mueller doesn’t believe he can indict a sitting president. “It is for public opinion, because eventually the decision here is going to be impeach, not impeach,” Giuliani said in May.

What Trump and his supporters in government are trying to do has the effect of making Americans not only stupider, but distrustful.  It is bizarre.
