A typical Sunday for me requires Netflix, a bath, a to-do list and many YouTube tutorials. Maybe even a bit of light shopping. I don’t usually have time to check the news, which is why I rely on round-ups to do all the hard work for me.

We know you’re busy chilling out, but if you want a quick update on the world around you, here’s what you need to know this weekend.

Donald Trump Takes A Shot At Michelle Obama

Although Trump has avoided talking about Michelle through much of the race, he has now accused her of attacking Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primaries. She said that if you “can’t run your own house,” you can’t run the White House. And Trump thinks that was a dig at Hillary. He also complained that “all she wants to do is campaign.” This comes on the heels of Michelle’s emotional response to Trump’s recent sexist comments.

Netflix Releases Trailer For ‘Barry’, Obama Biopic

In more political news, Netflix has released the trailer for its Obama biopic titled ‘Barry’, which focuses on his younger years and some of the pressures of his life back then. We’re not sure what he makes of it, but we think it looks pretty good!

Nintendo Releases A New Console

Nintendo’s new console is news because it brings home gaming on the road, and seems to be the first to do so. The Nintendo Switch features mini controllers that can be used remotely, so you can play Mario Kart at home and then take the device with you to play with your friends elsewhere. For now, it’s supposedly due for release in March 2017.

“In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles,” said Nintendo

Tesla Cars Will Have The Capabilities To Self-Drive

Elon Musk has announced that Tesla cars produced from now on will all have the hardware built into them that allows them to be self-driving cars. This comes in the wake of Apple’s supposed failure to produce cars, 8 surround cameras, 12 updated ultrasonic sensors, and a forward-facing radar make this dream a reality. The future is here.

NASA Says 2016 Was The Hottest Year On Record

According to NASA, 2016 could be the hottest year on earth since 1880. Most scientists think this is due to the steady build-up of heat-trapping greenhouse gasses. If so, winter is set to be warm and dry too.
