While traveling the country as an entertainer, I accidentally became a nationally renowned expert on the United States presidents. I didn't mean for it to happen, but if you visit enough historic sites eventually you're going to be an expert on something. Just like your mom warned you.

As a nationally renowned expert, it's my moral obligation to share my knowledge with you, whether you like it or not. I have write-ups of every presidential thing I've visited, sorted by president. I also made some informative videos, and I wrote a column for McSweeney's Interent Tendency answering the greatest questions in history.


Presidential sites. If a president was born somewhere, lived somewhere, died somewhere or is buried somewhere, I plan on going there. Probably by myself. Everytime I go to a site, I take down a few notes and then crank out a little write-up for your reading pleasure. If you read them all, it's almost like you spent the best years of your life talking to park rangers in Ohio -- with none of the hassle!

Enter the magical world of presidential tourism


Chris White Answers Profound Questions About the Presidents. A few years back, the website McSweeney's started a contest looking for columnists. I was one of the winners, and my very long-titled column ran for more than 20 installments. It is easily the most significant piece of presidential scholarship produced in the 21st century.

The White History Project. Studying YouTube, I realized that there was a huge unfilled niche for mildly humorous short films about the commanders in chief. Having filled this niche, I have been rewarded by the marketplace with all the riches you would expect. Oh god, the riches. They haunt me. Life was so much simpler when I was a poor presidential enthusiast.
