People all over America and around the world listened to Donald Trump’s unprecedented, divisive speech and asked themselves: who’s writing this shit for him?
Well, I think I found the answer — you can blame it on a bot!
For a few months now, I’ve been using a content creation tool called Articoolo. Articoolo uses algorithms to create unique articles. users type in a topic and get an article about this topic within a few seconds. quality of those articles is, well, better than anything a 14 years old average american high-school student can write, but in most cases not a lot better.
While using this tool I found a way to hack its huge data base of articles which were created by users like me.
So while browsing through articles I stumbled upon this one article, which was created by the bot about a week before Trump's speech, where I noticed a few suspicious paragraphs. you get suspicious about them when they are compared to some parts in Trump's speech...

Bot
Bot say

families trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation, an education system which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge and the crime and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

Trump say

Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation, an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

but that did not stop right there. here is another paragraph from that same algorithm generated article:

Bot
Bot say

The US government spent trillions of dollars overseas, while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. Other countries became rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of America has dissipated over the horizon. One by one, the factories shuttered and left US shores with not even a thought about American workers that were left behind. The wealth of the middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.

Trump say

…and spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas, while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon. One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.

so apparently, Trump’s speech writers are getting some help from someone with artificial intelligence. a bot.
