In other news, White House staffers say the half-assed remarks Trump made about extremism yesterday were very similar to what was prepared for him on Saturday, but instead of reading those remarks on Saturday he discarded them and freelanced. Trump apparently freelanced again this evening when he decided to double down on his earlier defense of Nazis.

Finally, Axios has an interesting look at where robots have replaced human labor. The first thing you'll notice is how most of the robots are clustered in the Midwest where white people voted for Trump because immigrants and free-trade loving Clintonites supposedly took their jobs. Or something like that.

I think I may have just hit Trump bingo and the prize that I want is to go drown in a river.
