A Google search Tuesday revealed the search giant returned search queries on Hitler with information on Trump.
Searching for “how old is Hitler” on google normally gets you some fairly predictable responses; the Nazi dictator’s age, as well as information of those that are related to Hitler in some way. Charlie Chaplin, who played Hitler in a movie in 1940, Anne Frank, who wrote a diary about her experiences living as a Jewish girl hiding from Nazis are all somehow related.
In addition to those normal suggestions, Republican Party front-runner Donald Trump appeared first, indicating that somewhere in the Google algorithm, Trump was more closely related to Hitler than other historical figures. Google’s all-knowing search protocols decided Tuesday that Hitler was more similar to Trump than any person that worked with the dictator or lived during his time.
In December of 2015, Google suggested Hitler’s autobiography “Mein Kampf” when visitors searched for Trump’s book, “Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again.”
Google stated that it had no idea why its search algorithm connected the Republican nominee with Hitler when asked by reporters about the problem. A google search at press time revealed that the problem had been fixed, the results replacing Donald Trump with Eva Braun, Hitler’s wife.
