HEY GOOGLE, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW?

As I continue to work on my list of everything Trump has done since the inauguration, I decided to take a look at what other bloggers and observers have come up with, to see how my list stacked up against theirs. Imagine my surprise when I typed in my search query only to see Google's auto-fill prompting suggest... well... take a look for yourselves.

Really, Google? "GOOD things" that have happened since Trump was elected? "POSITIVE things" that he's done?! Fucking "GREAT THINGS" he's already done?!?

I can guarantee you that there is NOTHING in my Google search history that could conceivably be responsible for causing these suggestions to show up as legitimate auto-fill suggestions. So either some of Trump's shadier associates--like, maybe, say, Erik Prince--is holding one of Sergey Brin's beloved family members hostage in exchange for some direct interventionary fuckery, or else there are some serious SEO shenanigans going on somewhere that need looking into.

Because you know, Sergey, you can say that Google's unofficial motto is "Don't be evil." But if you somehow let evil people do evil stuff that transforms Google into a de facto vector for evil propaganda... isn't that pretty much the same thing?

  1. The way I read those auto-fill suggestions is a flood of desparate searches, like, "Please, show me something — ANYTHING — that the Kakistocrat has done that could remotely be called 'good'! C'mon, there's gotta be... something... right? Um, anything?... No? It really is just one emetic outrage after another?"
