Google Put A Face To The Word Idiot!

Go ahead, try it for yourself, Google the word “idiot.”

U.S. President Donald Trump’s face is the first Google image search result for “idiot”.  So is the second. And the third. I counted seven on my search. Even as you continue to scroll down the page, Trump’s face appears with regularity.

According to Vice.com, this started naturally when British protestors pushed Green Day’s hit song “American Idiot” to the top of U.K. charts during Trump’s visit. But then, Reddit users started purposely trying to manipulate Google’s algorithm by posting articles that contain pictures of Trump and the word “idiot.”

It’s a tactic called “Google bombing” that builds a false relationship in the search engine database. And Trump got ‘bombed”.

Here is a screenshot of my search on Friday, July 20, 2018 at 10:40pm in Costa Rica.

Interesting to know if you get the same results from where you are. Use the comments section below to let me know.
