YouTube is going straight political, it seems. Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, the president of these United States, Barack Obama, is going to be giving his annual State of the Union address to the nation. And for those of you who ditched cable in favor of internet long ago (like I did), YouTube will be broadcasting the whole thing from the official White House page.
And that’s not all — Barack will be doing Google+ Hangouts via his first-ever “Presidential Hangout ‘Road Trip.’” See, “road trip” gets the extra emphasis because it is a virtual road trip as opposed to an actual one. This Friday, at 11 a.m. PT, “Barry” will be jumping into various hangouts across the nation to address people’s questions in regards to the State of the Union speech. Got a question for the president that isn’t about boxers, briefs or his approval rating? If you’d like to join the Hangout, record a 60-second video with your name, location, a bit about yourself and the question you’d like to ask the president. Then post it on YouTube with the hashtag #AskObama2014.
And if you’re a real glutton for politics, stay tuned after the State of the Union for the Republican response. But you’d better be a pretty damn big glutton.
