Amidst fears of spreading misinformation, AI image generator Midjourney has blocked all prompts around US election candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Responding to an increased rise in doctored images, the ban on these searches aims to prevent a potential AI-generated scandal. 

It's a smart move since Trump himself has proved even he can fall victim to the allure of artificial intelligence, after reposting a 'botched' AI photo of himself. Sensing that AI could only add fuel to the upcoming electoral fire, the choice to cease AI creations of the candidates is a necessary precaution. I will, however, be mourning the memes.
