White House Correspondents Dinner – Where to Watch

It’s going to be a Correspondents Dinner of a different sort this year, as Trump isn’t going, and everyone involved has vowed not to pull any punches.

Don’t let the statement that the president is busy at a rally fool you: he said he’s not going long before the rally was planned. The truth is, he’s not very good at being roasted – watch him sit stone-faced and incredibly cringey at Obama’s Correspondents Dinner in 2011:

Where to Stream the Trump Inauguration Live

Obama officially hands over the presidency at noon Eastern tomorrow, January 20th. For #cordcutters, that usually means searching around for where to stream it without cable. Fortunately there are some pretty easy places to watch it:

The much-discussed lack of quality performers will be in full force: Jackie Evancho, the Missouri State University Chorale, the Radio City Rockettes, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. There’s also plenty political humor around the event, enjoy!

Political humor:

Trump reportedly has written his own inaugural address, how can we turn it into a drinking game?

Netflix Canada: Seasons 1 & 2 of Black Mirror Just Added

Charlie Brooker’s fantastic work of “speculative fiction” Black Mirror has finally come to Netflix Canada (the first two seasons at least). The US has had it for a while, so it’s strange that it wasn’t in America’s hat yet. Definitely check it out if you’re in the mood for some trippy sci-fi, Twilight Zone style with different casts and settings in each episode.
