Really? I think it is a rather fitting image. Of course, it should also show Bush Jr. as well. Not biased at all. I mean, neither can make a coherent sentence. Neither can open their gob without becoming becoming a laughing stock.

The irony is that their actions now created headlines with ‘idiot’ and ‘trump’ in the same sentence, which will only further bolster his name in the search results.

Trump's picture also pops up if you search the words moron, stupid, dumbass, and imbecile.

Wouldn't this just mean that google is working correctly? When I image search for cats, I get pictures of cats. When I image search for planets, I get pictures of planets. If I do an image search for idiots, why wouldn't I get the most prominent idiots?
It's like punching a round bottom dummy. We all know it's futile, but occasionally it's fun.

Unless the folks at google are themselves progamming their engine to yield those results, its totally fair. If thats what the majority of people are saying, tough f***ing luck, maybe stop being an idiot. But, if google is using their platform to do that themselves, id say its kind of an issue.

It is bias, but Google obviously leans to one side, this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

Is there a law dictating "fair" search results?

It's the engine working as intended. A bunch of people were putting words like "idiot" on pages with Trump's picture and SEO did the rest.
