Political Humor

Recommended Posts

Last night, we had a happy hour after work. Hannah (the social butterfly in our office who organized the outing) said everyone had to try a drink they’d never order if they were just out their own. 

It'd been a long week, so I figured “what the hell” and ordered a White Russian. Gotta say... The waitress really earned her tip when she returned to the table and with a perfectly straight face handed me a photo of Donald Trump and walked away.

It is rigged. Duh.

In all 3 languages I tried?

Do you have any evidence for that?

(And I'd like to know what happens in any other languages people can check)

An image search for "Trotter" (I gather that' s roughly the German for "moron") gives 3 pictures of Trump in the first 10 hits.

There's a few pictures of Trump in the first page of hits for "imbécile".

I'm not sure it's a joke.
It would be if someone had "rigged" google to do this, but it's just a fact.

It's "Trottel" . But still gives hits.

Google: 'trump idiot google bomb'.

Quote

If you enter the word “idiot” into Google’s image search, the first pictures to show up will be those of U.S. President Donald Trump. This is not accidental.

Trump’s elevation in the “idiot” results is, according to the Guardian, the result of a deliberate campaign to manipulate Google’s algorithm.

It all started naturally, as Green Day’s song American Idiot was heavily used during the recent protests at Trump’s U.K. visit. But then, users of the Reddit forum site apparently started upvoting a post that contained Trump’s photo alongside the word, in order to tell Google that the post’s page is popular and therefore probably relevant to people searching for “idiot.” Of course, every time an article such as the Guardian’s—or this one—appears, it reinforces the trend.   http://fortune.com/2018/07/19/donald-trump-idiot-google-bombing/

I don't know if Google might use its translating magic to look for meanings in other languages (eg English if you are searching from .com or .co.uk)

Doesn't work in Japanese (lots of manga I don't recognise and Beat Takeshi who, I seem to remember, had a film of that name - or maybe he is just an idiot!)

In Italian the results are dominated by a popular idiota meme, with Trump appearing about half way down the page.

... I mean, it has to be satire, right?

That depends, how long can you hold your breath?

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St Peter at the pearly gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. 

He asked, “What are those clocks?”

St Peter answered, “Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie, the hands on your clock will move.”

“Oh,” said the man. “Whose clock is that?”

“That’s Mother Theresa’s. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.”

“Incredible!” said the man. 

St Peter continued, pointed to another and said, “That’s Abraham Lincoln’s clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life.”

“Where’s Trumps clock?” 

“His clock is in Jesus’ office. He’s using it as a ceiling fan.”
