    LEAKED VIDEO: Google Leadership's Dismayed Reaction to Trump Election | Breitbart


    A video recorded by Google shortly after the 2016 presidential election reveals an atmosphere of panic and dismay amongst the tech giant’s leadership, coupled with a determination to thwart both the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement emerging around the globe.

    The video is a full recording of Google’s first all-hands meeting following the 2016 election (these weekly meetings are known inside the company as “TGIF” or “Thank God It’s Friday” meetings). Sent to Breitbart News by an anonymous source, it features co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton, CFO Ruth Porat, and CEO Sundar Pichai. It can be watched in full above. It can and should be watched in full above in order to get the full context of the meeting and the statements made.

    It was reported earlier this week that Google tried to boost turnout among the Latino population to help Hillary Clinton, only to be dismayed as the usually solid Democratic voting bloc switched to the GOP in record numbers. This video shows a similar level of dismay among Google’s most high-profile figures.

    These individuals, who preside over a company with unrivaled influence over the flow of information, can be seen disparaging the motivations of Trump voters and plotting ways to use their vast resources to thwart the Trump agenda.

    Co-founder Sergey Brin can be heard comparing Trump supporters to fascists and extremists. Brin argues that like other extremists, Trump voters were motivated by “boredom,” which he says in the past led to fascism and communism.

    The Google co-founder then asks his company to consider what it can do to ensure a “better quality of governance and decision-making.”

    VP for Global Affairs Kent Walker argues that supporters of populist causes like the Trump campaign are motivated by “fear, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.”

    Later, Walker says that Google should fight to ensure the populist movement – not just in the U.S. but around the world – is merely a “blip” and a “hiccup” in a historical arc that “bends toward progress.”

    And people say that the US Roman Catholic Bishops are tone deaf.... When did our upper class become so arrogant and selfish? All of Silicon Valley is like that. Diamond and Silk say Facebook is all liars and thieves. Twitter has the same bias, although Trump dominates them with over 50 million followers. I don't understand the rich.

    This seems like nothing new. I've pretty much considered "Google exposed" ever since Rick Santorum's sir name suddenly showed up at the top of any search as a newly defined word with a "special meaning"...

    In the light I've been researching and working for days to try to improve my business website search results the Santorum definition rise to fame especially seems to be quite a feat to magically get to the top of the page like that.

    Time to break up these monopolies. They are worse than the "robber barons" from years past.

    Don't know what makes me more angry--the contents of the video or the way the MSM is describing the story, "In a video leaked by Breitbart News, Google executives..."

    Sorry, MSM but the video was leaked by someone at Google, Breitbart merely reported it.

    Obviously the contents of the video itself irks me more, but the description of who leaked the video is maddening.

    I agree but I don't know how to do it. I think that either the government has to rule that the platforms are not legally responsible for what Alex Jones posts, for example, or that conservatives have to build their own platforms.
