Headline of the day: Some plutocratic pandering


From the London Daily Mail:

Trump is the new JFK says Bill Gates: Microsoft boss says new president will unite country through innovation as the pair meet

  • Microsoft’s Bill Gates discussed a telephone conversation he had with President-elect Donald Trump on CNBC today
  • Trump, Gates said, was interested in talking about ‘innovation,’ which the tech titan considered to be a good thing 
  • ‘In the same way President Kennedy talked about the space mission and got the country behind that,’ Gates said, Trump could unite people through innovation
  • Later Tuesday, Gates showed up at Trump Tower for a face-to-face meeting with the president-elect
  • Talking to reporters on his way out, Gates called it a ‘good time’ and again said they spoke about innovation
