1. he was so respectful

as he let her know that it's because trump and idiot go together and it's not because of google, it's because of all the people on the internet associating trump with idiot.

3. Pretty much the same reason googling "punchable" brings up a lot of images of Martin Shkreli.

You really shouldn't be allowed to run for Congress if you don't understand how that works.

6. The Congresswoman already knew the answer. Zoe Lofgren is Silicon Valley

Poor Donald. Lofrgen and Pelosi in the same day.

Goodbye Softball Paul Ryan.

8. Google searches can deliver different results for different people, but when I search "idiot"

13 of the first 20 images are some variant of Donald Trump. One is Don Jr & Eric. The other 6 are non-Trump, including the first result which was Dostoevsky's novel.

But of those 13, 9 of them are meta -- i.e. about the fact that the google result for idiot is Donald Trump. Who knows how many/few would have been Trump had this not been brought up in a Congressional hearing? Seems like there's some Streisand-like effect going on here.
