Wikipedia Scrambles To Fix ‘Pathological Liar’ Entry To Remove Hillary’s Picture
Internet trolls were delighted last night to find that Googling “pathological liar” led to a photo of none other than Hillary Clinton.
Google provides previews of Wikipedia articles at the top of the page for many searches. When “pathological liar” was searched, quotes from a Wikipedia article on pathological lying appeared, along with a photo of Clinton. The article defines the term as “a behavior of habitual or compulsive lying.”
Clinton has been accused of dishonesty throughout her political career, and has been caught outright lying several times, such as when she claimed to be under sniper fire in Bosnia. She has also faced widespread accusations of lying about her use of a private email server.
Twitter users delighted at the Wikipedia snafu

The fun was short lived. By Monday morning, doing the same Google search no longer brought up Hillary’s photo.
