This might convince Donald Trump that Google’s not conspiring against him

Donald Trump called Google a member of the “dishonest media” on Sunday, but he might tone down his criticism going forward if he spent some time googling his rival last night.

Someone hijacked the Wikipedia page for “pathological lying” late on Sunday and uploaded a picture of Hillary Clinton. They also linked the Democratic presidential nominee’s name to the term throughout the article.

As a result, Clinton’s photo briefly popped up when Google users searched “pathological lying,” according to the Huffington Post. Google often pulls Wikipedia images during searches.

Searches for “45th us president” also reportedly showed a picture of Trump for a short time.

The revision history for the Wikipedia’s “pathological lying” page shows moderators quickly reverted the page back to normal and then locked it on account of “persistent vandalism.”

Trump has continually linked Clinton’s name with lying on the campaign trail. He often calls her “crooked Hillary,” and his supporters often chant “lock her up” at rallies for the Republican presidential nominee. More than once, his supporters have dressed up as Clinton in a prison jumpsuit.

During the second presidential debate, Trump threatened to jail Clinton if he is elected, and he’s repeatedly called her a criminal for her use of a personal email server while she was secretary of state.

That issue has dogged Clinton throughout the campaign, though the FBI found after an investigation that neither she nor her staff had committed any crime. The agency did, however, find that Clinton had been far too careless with regard to email security.

Maybe this little blip will convince Trump that Google search results aren’t conspiring against him.
