Seems that some pretty important folks over at Google were privately talking behind Donald Trump’s back and saying very hurtful things about his election. A video leaked by Breitbart shows Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin addressing co-workers, “Let’s face it, most people here are pretty upset and pretty sad because of the election…as a immigrant and refugee I certainly find this election deeply offensive and I know many of you do too.” Reports have it Trump was so traumatized when the news reached him that he had to seek refuge in his safe space.
Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, responded by tweeting, “Google needs to explain why this isn’t a threat to the republic.” Apparently, the alleged ghostwriter of many a Trump tweet was very outraged by these micro-targeted micro-aggressions. The air on Mount Hypocrisy is pretty thin, but not so thin he can’t hold Google accountable as he defends a man who has dubbed the press in this country the enemy of the people.
Of course all of this follows last week’s investigative tweet by Trump that Google rigs its search results. “Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,” Trump said. “Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal.” Too bad Twitter limits the number of characters, otherwise I’m sure President Mr. Trump would have cited the federal criminal code to back up his “illegal” assertion. To be fair though, Trump reportedly spent many months painstakingly researching this tweet, making sure he had all his facts straight before publishing.
Trump went on to threaten Alphabet Inc, Facebook and Twitter saying they “better be careful” they “are treading on very, very troubled territory”. Trump’s right of course. Researching this post, I could scarcely find any mention of this Google bad news on Google.
Finally, over on state run media, Trump’s Minister of Information, Sean Hannity, was experiencing yet another Foxturnal emission as he pored over a new batch of Strzok/Page anti-Trump texts. Trigger warning for Sean Hannity: as of Friday Paul Manafort has agreed to cooperate with Mueller. Hannity looked pretty sad and disillusioned Friday night. His red, puffy eyes betrayed a day long sob fest.
In the true spirit of democratic capitalism, Trump and conservative lawmakers are again threatening to interfere and hold a private sector company to account for perceived political differences. Funny how they don’t see it that way when it’s the Koch brothers throwing millions at conservative causes, or the Mercer’s attempting to subvert the democratic process. Wasn’t it a famous conservative who once said “government is the problem?” Not for this bunch, I guess.
Why am I quoting Reagan? Why am I defending Google? You can’t even navigate your way to this blog through Google. If anyone’s ended up here from a Google search result, please let me know. Anyway it seems the magnetic field has shifted or we’ve slipped through a wormhole. Republican lawmakers lecture FBI and Justice Department officials about conducting impartial investigations while they concoct an alternate reality based on partisan conspiratorial fabrications. Their deep state narrative is like a forum submission to a political porno mag. We won’t even mention QAnon. Perhaps the deep state is our only hope.
