Consider all the news about Greenland. This past week there have been a number of stories about the alarming acceleration of the melting of Greenland's glaciers.

Now that's all buried by "Trump wants to buy Greenland" nonsense that would never happen.

Coincidence? Or explanation of his random rants?

It also affects what ends up #trending...

What are the people talking about in regards to Greenland right now? Why? Do you really believe Trump expected to buy it? Just out of the blue? Same week as a bunch of negative news about it?

Maybe it might live up to its namesake?

Neither!

The Greenland "accelerated" melting story has dropped off the radar because it was based on erroneously high temperature readings from faulty equipment.

...And the climate porn industry (news media) would rather let the error stand than lose clicks.

I'm sure Trump just called up google, who hate his guts, and had them manipulate the search results.

I do believe that search engines do indeed manipulate results, but not to the benefit of Trump by any way or means.

Manipulated by speaking about it with no reason to do so. Not a direct manipulation of the algorithm. An exploitation of it.

wattsupwiththat reader I presume. An erroneous reading of one sensor and the whole thing is bogus? Including all the documented melting?

It is because - Winter is Coming (along with the Recession).

It is either pathetic attempts at deflection or this is literally driving him off the deep end. He has sounded rather insane lately.
