Trump Vs. Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL): Who is telling the truth?

1317 4 1 1 1 1 (9)

When you are an individual as maligned as the current U.S. PreSIdeNt it is easy to manufacture the idea that everyone is against you. To the outside observer, it is clear you are just a jerk and that is why no one likes you. For Trump and his supporters, the idea that Trump is just a jerk is unfathomable and everyone who has something negative to say about him (of which there is plenty) is just a "hater". 

The media, every intelligence agency in the U.S., and the majority of U.S. citizens are all against trump in a massive conspiracy to pick on him. A new defendant in the alleged conspiracy against the pREsiDent was brought forward by Trump in his Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) kangaroo court, the Google search engine from Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOGL) has been brought to the stand. Yes, that's right, Donald Trump is feuding with an algorithm, and he is desperate to prove his case against it.

Who is Telling the Truth?

Trump is so desperate he had a video made up, to provide his evidence and prove his case. Is Trump right? Is the big bad internet out to get him? Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) was quick to act and point out this was not the case. In a statement sent to journalists: "On January 30, 2018, we highlighted the livestream of President Trump's State of the Union on the http://google.com homepage. We have historically not promoted the first address to Congress by a new President, which is technically not a State of the Union address. As a result, we didn't include a promotion on http://google.com for this address in either 2009 or 2017." 

Predictably, the evidence is on the side of Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL). The internet has a way of archiving things and these archives prove that Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) did promote Trump's State of the Union address in 2018. Furthermore, others pointed out that Trump's video used a logo for screenshots supposedly taken in 2016 and on that hasn't been used since 2015, among other details. Trump's video was unquestionably doctored.

Look, the point of all this is, the President of the U.S. is willing to manufacture evidence, sloppily I might add, against a private company, over something as petty as unfavorable news coverage the said company isn't even in control of. The whole stunt a thinly veiled attempt at seizing control over free press, yet again. I know we slipped into a bizzarro dimension at some point in the last 10 years, but come on... How long can this absolute farce continue? 

Fortunately for investors Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) stock prices are unaffected by lunatic rantings and are holding steady between the 1,250 and upper 1260 USD range.
