It’s not the result of dirty tricks by Hillary’s campaign, but due to Google offering up a card that draws on a paragraph from this Huffington Post article giving reasons why it thinks she should be president.

I don’t expect Google to leave things this way for too long, but then the flub about dinosaurs stuck around for ages.
