Steve Bannon event canceled due to sex robots

Because it’s 2018, and nearly every breaking news story makes me want to pour boiling Lestoil into my eyes.

From — oh, why not? — the Montana Kaimin:

Steve Bannon will no longer be speaking at [the University of Montana], the latest and third event to be canceled following the announcement he would be a keynote speaker at a joint conference on sex robots this month.

An email sent to people registered for the event, the Athenian Parrhesia Free Speech Forum, stated, “Postponement: Due to the unavailability of Mr. Stephen Bannon this event is postponed until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

So that’s from a real college newspaper. And it’s not April 1, so …

Naturally, The New York Times is right on top of it:

I fully expected to one day see a headline with “Steve Bannon” and “sex robots” in it, but I figured it would be from his obituary.

This is far more disturbing somehow.
