As a fan of Black Mirror, I have to say that Bandersnatch is terrible. A great idea, mixed with a really shitty plot. I gave up around, well, I’m not even sure how deep I was in. I got annoyed with having to start over every other decision. Bleh.
The Trump administration on Sunday lifted sanctions on three companies, including the aluminum giant Rusal, linked to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. Democrats had led a push in Congress to continue the restrictions.
Earlier this month, Senate Republicans blocked an effort to keep the sanctions on Rusal, En+ Group and JSC EuroSibEnergo.
Some lawmakers from both parties have said it is inappropriate to ease sanctions on companies tied to Deripaska, an ally of Russian president Vladimir Putin, while special counsel Robert Mueller investigates whether Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Moscow.
CNN had a camera on the scene:

Wilbur Ross said a very stupid thing today.
So naturally, everyone in this ridiculous administration is piling on to say something even dumber:
Kudlow on why federal workers are showing up to their jobs without pay, as required: "They do it because of their love for the country, the office of the presidency, and, uh, presumably their allegiance to President Trump, but whatever: they're doing it." https://t.co/21E8OosuHw
