Eric Trump Accuses Google Of 'Manipulating Americans' After Search Of 'Mob' Leads To Images Of Anime Character
Eric Trump continues to spread his own particular brand of Trump-style Twitter rants, which are similar to those of his father but are, on occasion, somehow even more detached from reality.
This time, Eric had a major problem with Google, claiming the omnipresent search engine was "manipulating" its search results.
Trump's evidence? Well, he put the word "mob" into Google and it returned images of Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama from the popular anime Mob Psycho 100.
Eric drew the obvious conclusion.
Google was out to suppress the truth!

Google's search algorithm returns images sorted by popularity and optimized for "freshness," which likely means people have been searching for Mob Psycho 100 a lot lately.
