Google users attempting to search for information regarding presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s health are fed search suggestions that have nothing to do with the issue, many on Twitter pointed out Saturday.

Images show users typing, “Hillary Clinton’s he” into the Google search bar, before the search engine gives auto-complete suggestions including “Hillary Clinton’s headquarters,” “Hillary Clinton health plan,” and “Hillary Clinton’s healthcare plan” – in other words, suggestions that have nothing to do with the current trending issue concerning Clinton’s health.
Readers are encouraged to try this for themselves.
In contrast, the Microsoft-owned search engine Bing.com displays search results related to the current trending issue regarding the former secretary of state’s health conditions.
Search engine Yahoo.com’s auto-complete search suggestions are perhaps the most truthful about current trending topics regarding the Democrat nominee.
Merely typing the name, “Hillary Clinton,” in the Yahoo search bar brings up several suggestions inquiring into the former First Lady’s health status.
Indeed, just by entering the name, “Hillary,” users are fed multiple suggestions related to the former New York senator’s health and email scandal.
Observation of the issue sparked the viral hashtag #HillaryClintonSearchTerms which was trending on Twitter on Saturday.
Google had previously been called out for changing its algorithm to censor search engine suggestions for people looking for information regarding the multiple mysterious deaths tied to Hillary, known popularly as the “Clinton body count.”

Unlike Yahoo and Bing, Google brought up search suggestions referring users to research auto repair shops.
“While Google may not be outright censoring the information (people can still search for ‘clinton body count’), the fact that the term does not auto-complete clearly suggests that the company has altered its algorithm to clean up ‘conspiracy theories’ about Hillary,” wrote Paul Joseph Watson.
A report from Politico last year found that Google donated between $500,000-$1 million to the Clinton Foundation in recent years. Yahoo and Microsoft, on the other hand, do not appear on the list of media organizations that contributed to the foundation.
