Trump Just Googled Himself Then Had A Meltdown Over The Results

It was before 6:00 on Tuesday morning that Donald Trump took to his Twitter account to launch another conspiracy theory, this time about Google. Trump was apparently Googling himself and he didn’t like the results so now he’s threatening to take action over his really, really wrong perception that search results for news about him intentionally only bring up left-leaning websites.

“Google search results for “Trump News” shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media,” he tweeted, completely unaware of what an algorithm is. “In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal? 96% of…”

“….results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous,” he continued. “Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!”

We’re not sure where Trump got that 96 percent figure from or what it has to do with the evil “national left-wing media” whatever that is. When I Googled ‘Trump News’ the first hit I got was from Fox News. You know, that liberal bastion that features ultra-progressive Sean Hannity.

Still yet, Trump claims Google is “RIGGED” against him to show only “BAD” news about his presidency.  Trump launched a war on the media because he doesn’t like facts.
