In an interesting Google search for 'idiot', pictures of the US President Donald Trump appears. This apparent search result is because of a campaign by online activists, manipulating Google's algorithm, a report stated.

Another report stated that this trend started after Reddit users posted containing a photo of Trump and the word.

The word 'idiot' is linked to a campaign spearheaded by anti-Trump protestors.  Google's algorithms have helped the rise of the company, but simultaneously they are being a spoilsport.

According to one article in the year 2004, search for "Jew" had a hooked-nosed caricature. In the year 2009 searches for "Michelle Obama" showed pictures of first lady ape-like features. Another search for "rapist" before the US election showed at least five images of Bill Clinton.
