Remember the first Republican primary debate, co-hosted by Facebook? You couldn’t watch it online unless you had a cable subscription. Which made no sense at all! It was co-hosted by Facebook for Trump’s sake! But cordcutting fans of the political circus can now rejoice! Wednesday’s debate, hosted by CNN, will be available to anybody with an internet connection.


The debate will be held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, which, without traffic, is about an hour north of LA. But who am I kidding? It’s basically like ten hours north of LA because traffic in this town is nuts, amirite? Iamrite.

Fear not, though. You can watch it from the comfort of your filthy, filthy home. Just kidding. I bet your place is super clean. Don’t even think about that spot behind the bookshelf that you can’t clean without removing all the books first and moving the entire shelf to vacuum. I’m sure it’s not that dusty. Really, stop thinking about it, it’ll just drive you nuts. It’s fine, really.


Anyways, the debate starts on Wednesday at 8pm ET, 5pm PT and will feature eleven candidates. You can watch on, as well as CNN’s iOS and Android apps.

Unfortunately, newly declared (and as yet party-less) candidate for president, John McAfee, will not be taking part in Wednesday’s proceedings. But you know who will be there? Donald Trump. He hasn’t gotten much media attention yet, but we hear he’s a real up and comer. Could be one to watch.

I would rather binge-watch a season of “Cop Rock” than spend that time watching a bunch of old gasbags sound-bite for the camera.
