Trump tweets

Trump is rage-googling himself, and he doesn't like what he's found

President Trump said on Twitter early Tuesday that he had typed his name into Google and was dismayed with what he saw, suggesting that the lack of good news about him at the top of the search engine's results is "rigged" and might be "illegal."

Another possibility is that Trump just had a historically bad week — several key allies or employees were either convicted of federal crimes or reached plea deals with prosecutors, his former lawyer swore in court that Trump had directed him to commit a federal crime, and intra-party nemesis Sen. John McCain managed, in his death, to provoke Trump into an ill-advised fit of pique followed by a soft capitulation.

But as they say, sometimes you have to make your own good news, so Trump tweeted next about the booming stock market and quoted Fox Business pundit Lou Dobbs about how great Trump has been for minorities. Take that, Google.
