Phil: 'Sup you beautiful bastards! Hope you're having a fantastic Thursday.
Welcome back to the Philip Defranco Show and let's just jump into it.
And the first thing I want to talk about this morning is "Grabbing her by the brain".
This morning, I saw the headline: Phil: So the post that's referenced features actor Gregg Sulkin.
Tweeted the picture out with the caption: Phil: You go to the site, it has a "buy" link for a $21 hat.
And on the site you see for the months of October and November, they're donating part of the profits to charity, specifically 10% of all sales.
And so this is a little bit of a mixed bag situation.
There were a good number of people that were angry about this.
Some people, writing: Phil: So one, what I would say is I can kinda understand people getting annoyed at the idea of 10%.
You're saying that it's about empowerment but you're only donating 10% of the money to a charity and the rest is just profit.
So, it's the inclusion of a charity, a brand with a message to do good, but really it's all about that sweet, sweet much more than 10% profit.
So I definitely understand where those people are coming from, but you also need to realize that a lot of brands do that.
I mean, you could look at Apple and all those places that offer RED products.
"Buy this thing! You're actually helping fight AIDS!" [whispers] "And also giving us a sweet ass profit.
" So take a minute on Google and look at how little the NFL (National Football League) actually does give towards breast cancer research.
And that's why the charity things can be a little bit tricky.
Now as far as the argument that it's a group of guys that're profiting, that's just-that's just misinformation.
It's a great headline but it's just not true.
The "ambassadors" of this program are five people including Gregg Sulkin.
Only two of them are men, and the founder is actually a woman.
I mean, I don't wanna assume her gender,but I- I think that she's a lady.
And three, to the ladies of the Nation: Does it feel disrespectful if someone calls you a female? Does it feel that much different than woman? This is a-This is a genuine question,I'm not being sarcastic.
I've asked some of the ladies in the office and the answers have been a little bit of both yes and no.
It's also an example of if seeing people jump down the throat of someone because they used a word they didn't like that, that person didn't originally use to be offensive.
Like I remember when I was originally trying to understand the "Trans" community, I would every now and then use the wrong pronoun and some people would just GO at me.
And I was like "No! Let's have a conversation, don't f*****g kill me!" but that's also understanding that I don't believe that everyone is like that.
I don't know.
I'd just love to know what you think.
And from there, I wanna share some stuff I love today in "Today in Awesome," brought to you by two shirts inspired by last night's debate.
Because we're equal opportunity on this show, I drunkenly made two shirts last night that you can now get for the next four days.
Shirts that are perfect for people that are proud to be bad hombres and nasty women.
We also now offer expedited shipping, so hopefully you can get these shirts before you go in on November 8th.
And the first bit of Awesome is trailer awesome.
We got a trailer for the new Wolverine movie, simply called "Logan".
It looks like it's gonna be a dark, emotional, gritty superhero movie and I'm 100% down for that.
Then, as Rockstar promised, we got our first trailer for "Red Dead Redemption 2".
And in the trailer, they show off a bunch of really awesome things that're gonna be included in the games like trees and rivers and buffaloes and cutscenes.
It was really quick trailer, they didn't really show off much of anything.
But it looked pretty?! Then, we got a bunch of new footage for "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild".
And remember: if you wanna see the full versions of everything I shared, the secret link of the day, anything at all, links as always, are in the description down below.
And then something I wanted to talk about that was actually going to be in "Today in Awesome" but I wanted to go a little bit more in-depth, be a little more critical about it and that is the Nintendo Switch.
Also note: If you're like my wife and you couldn't care less about video games, go to this part in the time.

But yes this morning, Nintendo revealed their new console: the Nintendo Switch and as expected, it is a hybrid console.
What that means is much like an Xbox One or PS4, it's connected to your TV, it's next to your TV.
You're playing on the TV.
BUT if you need to go outside- ugh, you poor bastard.
Or where I predict 85% of Nintendo Switch gameplay will take place- when you need to go to the bathroom.
Boom! It pops out! Now you're in portable mode! You can play it by either attaching the Joy-Con controllers to the side.
You could also play with a regular standard controller.
If you wanna play with a friend, you turn the Joy-Con controller sideways you could play like that.
And unlike the Wii U and the gamepad situation, you don't need to be near it to play it.
Like you can take this on a plane.
This is the console.
The games that you play on the Switch will either be digitally downloaded or in cartridge form.
In the footage released, we saw the new"Legend of Zelda" being played.
"Mario", "Splatoon", "Skyrim", "NBA", "Mario Kart".
The Switch is scheduled for March 2017.
As of right now, we don't know how much it will cost or the specs.
But at the very least, we know what it's powered by.
According to NVIDIA: Phil: So here's what I'll say: I love the concept.
Portable gaming is better than ever, thanks to NVIDIA graphics cards.
I just bought a laptop that has a GeForce 1060.
I'm playing games at higher, ultra settings- All on a laptop that weighs around four pounds.
Now my laptop doesn't look nearly as portable as the Switch.
It most likely costs way more than what the Switch costs.
But I'm all for a better, portable gaming experience.
The questions I have right now: When the Switch is docked, how do those graphics compare to the Xbox One and the PS4 right now? Also, when you pop it out into portable mode, how does the quality change? It's not longer getting direct power, it's switching to battery, does the resolution go down? Does the frame-rate go down? What is the expected battery life? Will I destroy a Joy-con controller because my buddy wants to play with me- and all of the sudden, I have to play on this tiny, baby controller but I have fat fingers? And these are just the questions I have, based off of years and years of being promised certain things- – and how awesome stuff's gonna be in a trailer.
And then things actually ship, and it's a.
different, lesser experience usually.
That said, I'm hopeful that it's gonna be awesome, and honestly? It's Nintendo.
I'm on to buying it eventually because I wanna play the new "Zelda" or "Smash (Bros.
)" But also to the gamers out there, whether you're hardcore or casual: Does this-does this interest you at all? What're some make or break features around this for you? And a reminder as you're leaving your comment: [whispering in creepy voice]Just remember that Mario is watching.
And then let's talk about the debate last night.
It's the final presidental debate, the last time these two will face off head-to-head, and it was a s**t show as predicted, but-! not as bad as I thought it was gonna get.
So I'm not gonna do another 12-minute video just about the debate.
We're gonna look at some of the highlights.
Donald Trump addressed the allegations against him of sexual assault from a lot of women, saying that they are false, saying: Donald Trump: I didn't know any of these women-I didn't see these women.
These women, the one on the plane, the one- I think they want either fame or her campaign did it, and I think it's her campaign.
Phil: And his argument for that was he connected it to the undercover video we talked about yesterday- of the guy who was working for the DNC, talking about getting people to go to Trump rallies to incite violence.
Also, connected to this, Hillary Clinton attacked Trump for belittling women- Trump ended up responding with this, and the reaction from the audience was very interesting: Trump: Nobody has more respect for women than I do.
[audience laughing] Trump: Nobody has more res-Moderator: Please, everybody.
Phil: Then the candidates went after each other for their foundations: Phil: But in response, Trump said 100% of the money goes to charity- But to that, The Washington Post said after a review of documents: [Phil reads article's title] Phil: So they said that that's not true.
Then there was the topic of immigration, which gave us-oh! The "bad hombres" moment.
Trump: But we have some bad hombres here, and we're gonna get 'em out.
Phil: Then the two called each other "puppets", starting with Hillary: Hillary Clinton: Well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as President of- Trump: [interrupting] No puppet! No puppet! Clinton: the United States, and it's pretty clear- Trump: [cutting in] You're the puppet!Clinton: It's pretty- Phil: They also talked about everyone's favorite topics: abortion and guns.
Then, a moment that got Trump a lot of flack, but also a lot of love for- is when he called Hillary Clinton "a nasty woman.
" Clinton: -social security trust fund-Trump: [talking over] Such a nasty woman.
Phil: While I saw a lot of his supporters loving that move, I personally think that it was a misstep.
In my opinion, Donald Trump had done a very, very good job, just perception-wise, the entire debate.
For most of the debate, he was handling himself pretty fantastically.
He wasn't yelling, he looked-he looked, if anything, he looked presidential! He was deflecting on his own scandals well, he was hitting Hillary hard on her scandals.
He was REALLY hitting her on policy, specifically around abortion and guns.
Although there was a weird moment where it sounded like he was saying that abortions can happen the day before a baby is due.
Trump: If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip- the baby out of the womb of the mother, just prior to the birth of the baby.
Phil: But when he interrupted her this time, instead of saying "wrong" or saying "nasty person", he said "nasty woman".
And [snaps] just like that- the women that support Hillary Clinton all started owning that.
Calling themselves "nasty women", [Phil laughing] registering "Nastywomengetshitdone.
Com" and going to "hillaryclinton.
Com" They decided to OWN the term "nasty women", much like many on the right call themselves "deplorables".
The difference I would say there is Trump called Hillary "a nasty woman"- whereas when Clinton said "deplorables", she was talking about Trump's supporters.
So there is a difference but for the most part, there's been the same end result.
And the big thing a lot of people are concerned about on the left and right, is (to Trump) "Will you concede if you lose?" Historically, when a candidate loses, they call the winner of the election and they you know, congratulations; they usually do a concession speech, where y'know, "This sucks, but hey: We're all Americans.
Let's move forward"; And then hopefully in a clean manner, there is a hand-off of power.
It's the idea of "America first, political parties second".
But when Trump was asked if he would concede if he lost, he said this: Trump: I will look at it at the time.
I'm not looking at anything now.
I'll look at it at the time.
Phil: So that was scary to a lot of people because if Hillary Clinton wins and Donald Trump loses- What happens to the country if instead of conceding, you have a person saying, "The whole thing's rigged.
The fact that I lost proves it.
" Where does the country go from there? But then this morning, Donald Trump made this big announcement: Trump: I would like to promise and pledge.
to all of my voters and supporters, and to all of the people of the United States [One person cheers and whistles loudly, then others join] Trump: that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election- if I win! [audience cheers loudly] Phil: Is he trolling?! I'm trying my best to be as even as possible but- I see a man that when he's winning in the polls, he says "Look at the polls! The greatest polls! We're doing great!" But when the polls say he's down, he seems to say that they're not legitimate, that they're-they're biased, that they are rigged.
Now on the topic of the election being rigged, it is important to know that this is not the only time that has ever been said.
In fact, Democrats have talked about elections being rigged in the past.
A lotta people pointed it out in the 2000 election, Al Gore and the Florida recount, although that is more of a muddy situation.
Reportedly, John Kerry and his running mate believed the election was rigged against them.
"The New Yorker" reporting that Kerry believed.
Phil: Many also pointing as recently as this year:the Bernie Sanders situation in the primaries.
Many people believe, and understandably in my opinion, that the DNC worked against Bernie Sanders.
Many "Bernie or Bust"-ers who protested at the DNC, saying that the primaries were rigged against him.
But as other people have pointed out, that is different to say that you think that something is rigged, and just plainly not accepting the results or conceding.
All of this is even more confusing because Donald Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, said: Phil: Who knows what's gonna happen.
Main point, if you want your person to be elected, be sure that you are voting this year.
And just like I did last time, if you wanna see the fact-checking around the debate last night, both from sites like Politifact and Breitbart, links to that and much more down below.
And that's actually where I'm gonna end today's show.

Also remember, the nasty women and bad hombres out there, [laughing] grab a shirt while you can.
But that said of course, as always: My name's Philip DeFranco, you've just been "Phil-ed in," I love yo' faces, and I'll see you tomorrow.
