Sup, you beautiful bastards! Hope you’re having a fantastic Monday! Welcome back to the Philip DeFranco Show and let’s just jump into it. And the first thing we’re gonna to talk about today was the most requested story one of the most talked about things in the past twelve hours, and that is Meryl Streep versus Donald Trump. This is the world we live in now people! If you don’t know, last night the award show, The Golden Globes, took place and during that Meryl Streep gave an acceptance speech. And in her acceptance speech for this lifetime achievement award she took aim and fired on Donald Trump, although never actually saying his name as if he was Voldemort. And the Internet loved and hated this, people saying ‘Yas, Queen, speak the truth!’ Other people saying this is ridiculous, you shouldn’t even be talking about politics! I personally had a mixed reaction and if you’re a first timer here, I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump. I’m hoping for the best, but I do have concerns about freedom of speech in this country under Donald Trump, whether it be that he wants to arrest someone for doing a symbolic thing like stepping or burning on the American flag or the fact that he treats pretty much any negative story about him in the news as completely *fake*! False! An attack with no merit! And at times there *are* those. Theres are manipulations, exaggerations but there is also a lot of legitimately true negative things about Donald Trump And he’s now gotten to a point where he’s now trained a good number that support him to see any negative things said about him as a completely false attack. And much of the media has only fed into that because while there are legitimate things to hit Donald Trump on if you slightly stretch the truth, if you exaggerate it If you present it as just this one thing, but also do not even include how Trump or his supporters are defending him Many will look at it as a blind baseless attack from the left I do have that concern, but Meryl Streep’s speech last night seemed a bit all over the place To get to this point in the speech where she’s like, ‘if you kick us out, or get a bunch- all of the people in this room outta this country then you’re not gonna have movies, you’re not going to have art, you’re gonna have football and mixed martial arts, which isn’t even an art.’ MERYL STREEP: and if we kick’em all out, you’ll have nothing to watch, but football and mixed martial arts, which are *not* the arts. What?! One, what did mixed martial arts ever do to you, Meryl Streep? It’s like you’re making a passionate speech about human rights and you’re like, and also by the way: fuck, McDonalds! Meanwhile Ronald was just over in the corner minding his own damn business Also Meryl, if you saw the amount of work that goes into being a high-level Brazillian jiu jitsu specialist I think you might not say it’s not art. But, people are gonna have their own opinions even though I do believe that what your mind said of what Donald Trump wants to do regarding immigration, is kinda different, but everyone is allowed to have their opinion. Then one of the most quoted parts of her speech was this moment where she talked about Donald Trump making fun of a reporter MERYL STREEP: It was that moment, when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country, imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back And you might have heard about Donald Trump doing this maybe you actually saw the actual clip on the news or you just saw it on a Hillary Clinton campaign video. If you have not seen what Meryl Streep was referring to, it’s this clip. TRUMP: Written by a nice reporter, now the poor guy- you gotta see this guy. TRUMP: ‘ooohh, I don’t know what I said ahhh’ TRUMP: ‘I don’t remember!’ This is the reporter he was talking about Then this morning in response to Meryl Streeps speech Donald Trump went to Twitter, tweeting ‘Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes.’ ‘she is a Hillary flunky who lost big.’ For the 100th time, I never mocked a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him…’ ‘”groveling” when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad.’ ‘Just more very dishonest media.’ So that’s an argument that you may not have heard of. How can you see the clip of him mocking that reporter and go ‘Oh, no. He’s not making fun of the disabled.’ Well, many have argued that this is just Trump’s mannerism for someone that he thinks is stupid just not being able to handle the pressure. One of the best examples of that was during the primary he was talking about Ted Cruz. TRUMP: Every. Single. Debate. You know I heard Ted’s a good debater I said he is a good debater, but he can’t talk, okay? Bad talker. TRUMP: S’good debater, bad talker. TRUMP: So he’s over here, they asked him about water boarding They said ‘Senator Cruz, what do you think of water boarding?’ ‘Uhhh, I don’t wanna talk about it ,you know? He didn’t wanna talk about water boarding So obviously Ted Cruz doesn’t have any disability unless you consider his being just a generally creepy, disgusting person a disability then, yes, he would be. And some people argue it’s the same mannerism, it’s the same point that Donald Trump’s getting across he’s not making fun of a disability, but someone panicking under pressure being called out on something But, the argument against that is okay, well, Donald Trump wasn’t making fun of that specific reporter he just makes fun of people by acting like they have disability And at that point when you make it more of a general statement I feel like it’s a far more gray argument if you wanna go after Donald Trump, you can go after Donald Trump cleanly He has- he has so many documented ridiculous things But if you don’t at least put in the work to look at the argument of why he isn’t the biggest monster ever in this specific case then so many of the people that do support him are going to cast off your coverage as just bias B.S. Also, quick final note I wanna make about The Golden Globes and Donald Trump is: I love that Jimmy Fallon, in the monologue , took a shot at Donald Trump And once again I’m paraphrasing, but a lot of people wondered what would happen if King Joff rey didn’t die in Game of Thrones, well, we’re gonna find out in twelve days. And here’s what I’ll say about Jimmy Fallon I’ve never minded him I know that a lot of people said that they got- they were annoyed because he seemed so fake and always pandering It’s kinda sealed it for me that Jimmy Fallon is just- is a fake, pandering man with no backbone. He’s in a super liberal room so he’s like, ‘Yeah, let’s take shots at Trump. Whoo!’ Meanwhile, cut back to September 15th, 2016 Donald Trump is on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and this moment happened. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JIMMY FALLON: Yes! JIMMY FALLON: Donald Trump, everybody! He’s my buddy when he’s with me, but when he’s in this room, ‘Fuck Trump!’ Like love or hate Stephen Colbert, and I love Stephen Colbert, that man sticks to his guns no matter who is in front of him. And at the same time, jokes a joke So main point: I would love to know what you think about the Meryl Streep-Donald Trump business. What was your take away? Did ya love it, ya hate it? I’d love to know what you think and why. And from there I wanna share some stuff I love today in Today in Awesome. And the first bits of awesome are self promo-awesome We uploaded a brand new vlog to Youtube.com/PhillyD And also if you wanna hear me in a podcast format I was on Not Too Deep with Grace Helbig that just went up on Soundcloud Both are good times. A link to them both down below Then we gotta brand new trailer for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which seems great! Unlike the doll they put out for Emma Watson that actually looks more like Justin Bieber Or if you tried to mix Emma Watson’s face and Justin Bieber’s face into one, but not with photoshop instead with just a shovel. You’re giving me nightmares, Disney. If I woke up and the first thing I saw was that face it might literally kill me. Then I wanna share the cold open from The Golden Globes, which I actually- I really, really enjoyed. At least way more than Jimmy Fallon’s really, really broken awkward monologue. Then one of my new favorite things, Mark Hamill has started as the Joker reading Donald Trump tweets. M.HAMILL/JOKER: Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies… And remember if you wanna see the full versions of everything I shared, the secret link, and anything at all links is always in the description down below. Then let’s talk about Razer. They are primarily known as the gaming laptop company. This year at CES they showcased their new products, but also a prototype called Project Valerie. It was this laptop with three 4k screens. I guess because they looked at the new Razer Blade Pro and they were like, what if this weighted more than 8.5 pounds? Now I love Razer. I- I personally think that this idea is- is silly Also it’s not really that original. There’s a thing out there that you can buy right now called Slide n’ Joy. They have 13, 15 inch and 17 inch versions you then slide this thing on to your laptop, boom, you got three screens. Now of course the notable difference is that these screens are 1080 not 4k but they are also not attached to the same laptop whereas the Slide n’ Joy is interchangeable. This isn’t a tech show! The reason I’m talking about Project Valerie today is apparently somebody stole it. Razer CEO writing on his Facebook page, As far as the motive of stealing this, we don’t know because there may have been someone that was like, “Ah, I want some really sweet gear.” The CEO of Razer also pointed out it could be something else. Writing: Razer is also reaching out to the public for any help whatsoever saying if you see this laptop, please email Legal at razorzone.com. And now let’s talk about what the hell has been happening with Chris Brown and Soulja Boy over the past week. People have been asking me to chime in on this stupid story so let’s try to and do it in the lease idiotic way. Chris Brown, of course, best known for making music and also beating the hell out of Rihanna. And Soulja Boy of course best known for an album that came out in 2007 where he told you to ‘superman dat hoe’. Okay, that’s bring it up to speed. The two used to be friends, or at the very least, friendly. Then Soulja Boy liked a picture from Karrueche, which is Chris Brown’s ex. And then after that Soulja Boy posted a video to Twitter saying that Chris Brown facetimed him and he was hurt and offended that he could even like a picture from Karrueche. Also I’ll be quoting or paraphrasing most of this because if I had to play the clips for you it’d just– Five minutes of that will make you wanna slam your head against the wall until the noise has stopped. Then Chris Brown responds Says Soulja Boy was the one that was contacting him. Then Chris Brown posted Soulja Boy’s real number And then they started trashing each other on social media Chris Brown usually stuck to the memes. Soulja Boy tweeting out stuff like: It’s hard to seem hard with an emoji. Then Chris Brown said that this wasn’t over Karrueche. Soulja Boy saying it was also about Rihanna There were also some people saying that things- that maybe Soulja Boy snitched. Whatever. Then on January 3rd, Soulja Boy was livestreaming and then he apparently got robbed? Then the following day Soulja Boy made a video where he said that his mom was in the hospital, she was sick. And he apologized for his behavior, saying that he actually wanted to make music with Chris Brown. That apology was not accepted And the next thing we all knew was that there was going to be a celebrity boxing match. Soulja Boy and Chris Brown are going to fight in a ring. Soulja Boy is being trained by Floyd Mayweather And Chris Brown is getting trained by Mike Tyson *This* is so stupid. Also, just so we’re all aware, Chris Brown is going to win I think Chris Brown is a worthless dirtbag woman-beater Like that’s just- I will always think of him in that way Soulja Boy is this tiny, little guy Soulja, you can win if they let you bring a gun in. And if the internets right, Soulja boy is 5’8″ 130 pounds! And not only the size difference, just the words coming outta their trainer’s mouths You got Mike Tyson saying this: MIKE TYSON: Right, Imma teach him every dirty trick in the book MIKE TYSON: Knock you out. Meanwhile Floyd Mayweather’s thoughts on the fight are this: SOULJA BOY: Champ, what we gon’ do? MAYWEATHER: [LAUGH] I’m gonna get the money SOULJA BOY: The biggest fight of the century MAYWEATHER: We gon’ get that money And I’m gonna cut the video there because Floyd Mayweather there, just for the next 20 seconds just keeps saying ‘make money’ Which is a great strategy for Floyd Mayweather and not so much for Soulja Boy I mean just look at Floyd smiling, he’s like: “Can you believe this idiot?” “I’m gonna get paid, you’re gonna get a concussion.” I guess the main point is while I find this completely stupid And I will not be purchasing this pay per view. I very much look forward to watching free Twitter video after the fight of one of these guys getting knocked out. And then I wanna talk about Iska Lawrence whose been in the news for several reasons over the past week She, if you don’t know, has been labeled recently the most popular plus size model Although if you’re like me and you saw her last Instagram video you’re like, “that’s what they consider plus size?” The hell is happening? She’s been a part of campaigns like “Everybody is beautiful” Body positivity, but she has recently come under fire She was recently the cover star for Self Magazine inside there was a workout plan, a meal plan, and people criticized the meal plans saying that it was promoting starvation The meal plans came out to around 1500 calories a day and because they were so restrictive on top of all the exercise, some people saw that as dangerous Although those who defended the magazine pointed out that the US Department of Health and Human Services says that eating plans that contain 1000 to 1200 calories each day will help most women lose weight safely. So those complaints came in, Iskra said that she saw them and that she then asked the magazine to take out the meal plan Saying she knew there were going to be recipes, but didn’t know it was going to be in the form of such a restrictive meal plan. And out of those who are angry, some appreciated it, some saw this as just damage control and then cut to that video that I showed you of her dancing. If you look through a lot of her recent posts she has come under fire because it looks like she’s losing weight And then some people started saying well, they liked her this thickness and that They- that goes against the whole point of what this woman says she stand for! I’ve talked about this in the past. I’m all for body positivity as long as it doesn’t lead to you just hurting yourself. But if you have this woman at a certain weight saying, ‘every body is beautiful’ You know you just have to own yourself Just be happy with yourself! And then if- if her self is a slightly more fit, more athletic person then why- why does that hurt her message? As long as she’s doing it for her and she’s not doing it because she feels pressured by society or the industry that she’s in I say good! I understand that if you feel all of a sudden like you can’t relate to her as much because all of a sudden she no longer is, maybe, your same body type I- I understand that, right, and it is a flaw, but a justified feeling. But to then slam this woman for making a change that she wants in her life that, once again, it’s such a hypocritical thing to do. Everybody is beautiful! Unless all of a sudden, hey, hey that body’s different I didn’t sign off on this. It doesn’t matter if she’s doing her, she wants to see a change in herself, she can do that. She doesn’t have to ask if the public is okay with that. If you didn’t like her before because you thought she was too big, I think you’re a douchebag. If you liked her before all of a sudden you don’t like her now, I just–I think you need to take a long look in the mirror and see if you’re a hyprocrite. And that’s- I think that’s where I’m gonna end it there. Not trying to white-knight, just trying to point out some hypocrisy. And that’s actually where I’m gonna end today’s show.
