  1. Sorry we were late today. I hate throwing you off your bathroom schedule.
    Timecodes: Ellen Fallout 00:22 – Blippi Backlash 4:38 – TIA (WATCH MY DAMN SPONSOR NERD) 6:33 – NBA CNN China Controversy 7:58 – Syria Turkey 11:20

  2. As far as the Blippi thing, I've seen Trans-Siberian Orchestra twice, both times two different bands. One looked like they were from the 80s, the other from the mid-00s. It happens, people should chill out, your kids won't even notice.

  3. My dad's dead… But true story! When my dad was younger his mum asked him to get some loo paper for her as she was.. well mid bathroom let's say. Sure enough he went out for her but little did anyone know at this point that my dad's memory had some issues. He came back three days later with a loaf of bread.

  4. RE Blippi: No one was confused when Daniel Radcliff didn't play Harry Potter on Broadway, why is this surprising?

  5. Nice. Demonetized in under 30 seconds.

  6. This is the fault of America. You chose this monster to be your president.

  7. Good old far-left Phil…
    Mylifetime fan fiance of you says You cover topic strangely politically and you used to be so funny lol lighten up dude

  8. Fuck the cheeto man😒

  9. with blippi i really dont see a problem with it. as long as the performance promised meets the standard of the character portrayed who cares? kids dont. yeah we adults dont like it when a certain person we relate to is like "oh yeah no imma get my double to go instead" like if pewdiepie went to a convention we wouldnt expect to see an impersonation of him. but hes a totally different creator making content for a totally different audience. i think most kids even if they knew the entire truth and understoof it wouldnt really care. theyd either take it or leave it. they tend not to get very political lol. so at the end of the day let the kids decide. and if its what they want for a price the parent can and chooses to afford its gucci.

  10. I literally watched a press conference trump had a while back and he went on and on to a kurd reporter that he loved their people and thought they were good people . If this is what he does to good people that’s scary.

  11. Ngl Ellen was my childhood crush. So glad hearing her positive message again.

  12. That reply from Ellen makes no sense whatsoever.

    It'd be like people asking "How can you possibly be friends with Ted Bundy he's a serial killer," and me replying "Well he's a real nice guy who just has a difference of opinion on the value of life,".

  13. First you boycott the NFL because a player exercises his right to free speech….
    Then you support the NBA when they suppress their member's right of free speech….
    You really should quit pretending to be a Patriot of American Constitutional values and ideologies.

  14. Jamila Jameel’s excuse was extremely poor. Especially because the other main culprit of those war crimes was our very own PM Tony Blair. Lol @ her thinking she could get away with that one.

  15. This is probably one of the more depressing Philip Defranco episodes, since the news today in Syria is just heartbreaking. Hope someone intervenes soon cause we owe the kurds a lot of gratitude for handling the situation.

  16. PDS: omg the NBA and blizzard are kissing china’a ass that’s horrible

    Also PDS: showing the The Syrian dictatorial regime flag as representative for the entire country

    #whatAjoke

  17. trump is a murderer.
    Anyone who still supports him is fucking evil.

    But at least his hotels in Istanbul will remain in good standing.

  18. Man…these days if you want to be friends with someone, you damn sure better first read everything they ever posted on social media. Don't want to be friend with someone who made a controversial joke 12 years ago, that would socially inappropriate…

  19. It's okay to be in endless wars.

  20. Still sad no diplomat coverage but this was a great video. I don't see the Bippi thing as shady even if it's a bit weird, depends on the impression he gave people when first launching the tout but if it's a good stage performer – which it can be assumed they are – the kids won't care so why does it matter. And then the Ellen thing is mixed for me as I'm not American, although Americans can't get mad at Jameela as they're just as ignorant about other countries and dark parts of their own history sometimes.

  21. honestly its become a pretty odd situation with china. theyre now actively affecting our domestic affairs. not just hong kong. i think if you really want to step back and look at whats going on it becomes pretty clear china wants control on speech. surprisingly or maybe not so much even outside of china itself.
    i hope if this problem escalates we can take legal action to shut this down.

  22. abandoning the Kurds is a disgrace. Erdogan should have been overthrown long ago he's a dictator and a genocidal terrorist

  23. I think that what harden said wasn't political instead he judt commentated about the culture and people in China. You have to take into consideration that James Harden isnt a PR person just a normal guy who has his own opinion. It wasn't political he was just saying that he loves china which alot of people do. Not for their political stands but instead just for their culture, specifly their basketball culture.

  24. My father is actually a dead alcoholic,-anyway, good luck with your surgery!

  25. trump's knowledge of Middle East fighting during World War II, like the rest of his knowledge base, is abyssal and all but non-existent!

  26. I kinda hate everything that is happening right now, but I appreciate there is one place I can go to get clear and accurate information. To Phil and the entire Rouge Rocket team, I appreciate you!

  27. In regards to Blippi. Reminds me how Garfield hasn't been drawn by Jim Davis for a looooong time.

  28. For my father, he keeps getting cigarettes even though he has lost his voice box.

    For Blippi, Pokemon Live didn't have the same cast. Still enjoyed. Hamilton doesn't have the same cast as was on Broadway. Still enjoyed, although hearing Alexander Anderson makes me laugh more.

    As for NBA/China/Hong Kong situation, complicated. The Rockets have been known for a long time as "China's Team". The Rockets have long benefited from this. Simply put, there is a lot of money on the line. Not just the Rockets but the entire league. When running a business, money will always matter. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has a good track record of doing what's right but I don't envy him at this moment. No easy solution for the easy win.

  29. 17:51 Weird, I actually agree with Trump on this. Seems like Turks were holding Kurds hostage. "Support us or we will fuck up our allies."
    They wish to fuck themselves, let them.

  30. I have a lot of trouble with the idea of being kind to people that don’t believe in basic human rights. HOWEVER when face to face with people I feel a lot of empathy and try to be kind to and identify with each person I interact with.

  31. the cleansing of the Kurds is our punishment for allowing true evil to run rampant in our government. If this isn't proof that the systems our founding fathers put in place to check a mad king haven't been eroded by corporatism gradually dissolving our democracy with PAC money, I don't know what is.

    I swear, if we didn't have glad-handing yes-men republicans and enemic and weak corporate fed democrats, Trump would have gotten nailed on Emoluments clause violations in 2017… or maybe even 2018 after they got their sickening tax break passed.

  32. That Blues Clues hit me hard…

  33. South Park being the most outspoken against China. What is this timeline?

    So, is SDF going to be the new Taliban/ISIS? Have we turned another ally into an enemy? Will politicians and other Republicans act surprised when Kurds begin to hate us?

  34. Harden's stepback is something else

  35. Ellen Degeneres being friends with G.W. Bush is like Saul Rosenthal being best buds with Hitler.

  36. Trump is gonna be disappointed if he finds out what side Germany and Japan were on during the second World War…

  37. That James Hardin thing is blown out of proportion. Pretty sure he's thinking of fans in that statement, not the government. The Rockets are hugely popular in China and basketball is very popular in general. I think he should've taken that question to clarify that but it is what it is.

  38. To carry on Trumps comment. They did not help us in Vietnam, oh wait, nether did bone spurs Trump. mmmm.

  39. IN regards to Turkey. When the Kurds either massacre the ISIS fighters to stop them from escaping, or the ISIS fighters get freed and reform ISIS, will people blame Trump and Turkey?

  40. As an Afghan Infantry war vet let me say, fuck you Mark Ruffalo

  41. "The Kurdish–Turkish conflict is an armed conflict between the Republic of Turkey and various Kurdish insurgent groups, which have demanded separation from Turkey to create an independent Kurdistan, or to have autonomy and greater political and cultural rights for Kurds inside the Republic of Turkey."

    this is essentially what the conflict seems to represent. a civilish war between the turks who have an established state and the kurds who want official freedom from turkey and to create a new state.
    by letting turkey attack the kurds they effectively are trying to oppress this group of people either to death or to conformity. probably the former.
    the kurds who have seemingly been allied with the us and turkey up till now have now become the new enemy of turkey and trump decided to pull out of this situation.
    as far as turkeys political matters go i think this was the most reasonable response. we dont want to fight turkey or the kurds. so its best to just let them go to war.

    this is how i interpret the situation. if anyone has anymore information that im missing please share it.

  42. What's happening with Syria is such a mess.. They have lost Years of safety, love, passion, beauty, and more. ISIS and the American government are on the same page, and it's troubling. And we are all involved that you like it or not, believe it or not, we pay for this to happen.

  43. I can personally say that IS a dank wallet.

  44. Holyshit Ellen actually said something that is correct.

  45. Hypocrites

  46. Ellen's just the next person in cancel culture. Over reactions. Then everyone forgets a week from now and it goes back to normal or probably even a bit better than normal.

  47. All those liberals against Ellen and Bush getting along just proves that the left isn't tolerant 🤦🏼‍♂️

  48. HEY!!! Dont you dare badmouth Baseketball!! It is a classic of our time on the level of The Adventures of Pluto Nash

  49. No Phil my father killed himself…

    But I appreciate your optimism!

  50. Calling someone privellged is just being mad because someone is successful and have nothing else. It's a cop out. Keep being angry.

  51. On Ellen – Eh, I'll pass on being friends with people who don't respect my BEING haha. Real friends would augment their position, at least out of love for you.
    Buuut, that decision is up to you to decide I guess .

  52. Never been an Ellen fan, dislike how she does her show, BUT I still see her point, and as for the "until he's imprisoned" thing, it's not her responsibility to take him to court, and she said she had no idea he'd be next to her, besides he's the one that was filming not her, If I were in her place I'd do the same

  53. Can you please talk about the shooting that happened in Halle, Germany? It's a really huge story here right now. Would like to hear your opinion.

  54. The past with blipi sure is interesting lmao. Copy and pasted from wiki

    "John initially started making gross-out videos under the persona of Steezy Grossman, a boy born as poop resulting from anal intercourse.[4] Under his Steezy Grossman alias, John developed videos such as "Turdboy" and "Underwear Man".

  55. I like how all comments are interested in local stories, but not how trump and america has kurdish blood in their hands, as if this is not going to affect america image and it's allies.
    it's just sad

  56. If they cancel ellen i will delete all my social media

  57. People upset that the creator of a character / persona won't be acting in the role on tour are probably very confused when going to Disney Land and not seeing Walt Disney acting as all the characters / personas! SMH nobody tell them that characters in sitcoms change actors too. So do characters in movies. Same for voice actors for anime characters.

  58. I would have been much less impressed if it were only one tower in Istanbul. Much less. It is important that two towers are there. It's a magnificent thing, the two towers. Maybe the most magnificent.

  59. This turkey and Syria situation is like being between a rock and a hard place and no one is helping turkey.

  60. Man, I almost bought a ridge wallet until I found out there are plenty of near identical wallets on Amazon for under $20. I don't remember the brand (if anyone is interested , I can check tomorrow in my order history) but for under $20, it feels premium as fuck. I really really want to support ya but ridge is a scam.

  61. But the turks are bigger allies than the kurds…. Trump did good on leaving because America can't stay there forever like the warhorny democrats and republicans wants

  62. It’s just what George Carlin said,“ it’s all just a big club, and you ain’t in it”

    Ellen, Hollywood elites and conservative voices are all in one group and non of them care about the “little ppl”

  63. I don't like Ellen's show, I don't think she's funny, but thank God she's around to be the voice of reason

  64. Every Kurdish death can be put at the door of Trump and the US, shameful.

  65. if you're advertising your self and idea, u damn well show up, not get some lookalike

  66. The U.S. showed up extremely late to WW2 after British and Canadian forces had already sacrificed many lives, and only joined the war effort after being directly attacked by Japan at Pearl Harbour. So maybe Trump should pick up a history book and read something with his idiot mouth shut.

  67. Blippi is a fictional character, a persona and a children's entertainer.

    So people are arguing that a singe actor should be cast for it?

    Funny how we just had the new Joaquin Phoenix's Joker movie release.

    Another clownish fictional character entertaining adults instead of children and we're paying to see it en masse.

    Hm, but not the same backlash is given?

    Double standards, people. Get your shit together.

  68. Let's be honest: James Harden probably just said that because he wanted to keep his job

  69. Fuck people that really got bent outta shape cuz of Bush and Ellen… really we have come to this point in time where we can even sit next to a person we don’t agree with at a football game.. fuck America and the people who made this a big deal!

  70. Typical America dont you think? its Afghanistan all over again these Kurds will eventually escape and slowly become an extremists group just like Al Qaeda… and Americans still wonder why they are a target for extemist attacks. The Kurds were abandoned and they will start another war which the US will endorse again… Its a stupid vicious cycle…

  71. Something that I've learned is that when you're trying to get someone to change their opinion about someone one of the easiest ways to do so is to be friendly to that person, since even if you know they know they're wrong they won't want to change your opinion if you're person is rude about it.
    I don't know what Ellen is thinking but I find it a far better method to get Bush to understand that the LGBTQ people can be as normal and kind as anyone else is a far better way of dealing with the problem than condemning him into oblivion. Yes he committed heinous crimes (of which I know nothing of) , but I see this as something bigger than Bush and Ellen, it's about people understanding that they can change and if they do they'll be accepted. You can't fix a problem if you don't know there is a problem to begin with.

  72. cover trisha pastas' latest controversy for a segment of don't be stupid stupid please

  73. Bush has been accused of some terrible things, but I for one still believe in "innocent until proven guilty" and I think Ellen's message is a good one. Time will tell if Bush is worthy of her friendship, but I cannot and will not see her message as anything less than amazing, and it just makes me love her as a celebrity, influencer, and a person more.

  74. Be nice and be friends with whoever you want, their political beliefs shouldn’t determine if you’re friends with them.
    The best way to make him change his LGBT views is to be KIND and show him that she (a lesbian) is just the same as every other person, and that being kind is a faster deterrent from intolerance than shame.
    As for the Iraq war, yes he should be brought to justice. But a lot of it is situational, and there are lots of political leaders who should also be brought to justice (like both of the Clintons) but haven’t yet. No one was angry when Ellen was buddy buddy with Hillary.

  75. That guy satisfies a lot of things.

  76. If Europe is so concerned they should send soldiers. Also, Trump campaigned on getting soldiers home and that's what his people want.

  77. Blippi is the poor man's Timmy Mallet

  78. wallet looks okay, but after buying it I wud hav no $$$ to put in it. i think i stick with my polyester billabong wallet from '92 untill the velcro completely fails. at least there will be $$$ on the cards in it

  79. When are these other countries going to take the blame? If people don't like what Turkey is doing, then accuse them. Make them, and the other countries involved in this war take responsibility. Finally. You say you don't want America involved in these wars, yet you use Americas withdrawal as a reason to target Trump. So which is it? America is not the worlds parent. Other countries should be held responsible for THEIR actions. You are so stuck in your belief system that you cannot see what is plainly in front of you.

  80. When will people learn that trying to block or delete a video will never help😂

  81. The us has been using U2’s as Predator drones the US is involved I don’t care

  82. I'm fucking loving every bit bit of news that comes out about Trump lately. He truly is putting America first. Let other countries fix their own damn problems. We've been getting in their business for years with zero progress under multiple leaders. Time for the world to actually step up and get their shit together. America is no longer your crutch. No more free handouts.

  83. I've always said the only way Trump will be removed by Senate Republicans. if he f** with the war machine.

  84. 10:16 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  85. Hey Phil, here’s an update on the USA-side of the Turkey Situation:

    Some Russian pranksters messed with Lindsay Graham claiming to be a Turkish Official and got him to admit some rather monstrous things about the situation, something going FAR against his public opinion.

    You might want to research this further, his behind-closed-doors statements amazes me at the callousness a human can show.

  86. Dumbed down leftist nazis: Blablabla EMOTIONS. Blablabla FEELINGS. Blablabla REEEEEEE. #Npcs

  87. Sigh the stupidity of folks making links between Ellen & Former President Busch are Just beyond belief – OMG folks get over yourselves these links to stuff are just plain stupid!

  88. This is what happens to a stagnant society, without a world war to slaughter this useless, dumbed down, overfed, moorican cattle. #Moo

  89. It's the best when, the dumbed down cattle left, devours its cancerous feral self. You are scum. #EnjoyBeingCattle

  90. South Park puts out more meaningful content than any channel, besides the Philip DeFranco channel.

  91. Joke's on you, I don't want my father back, hope he choked on that milk on the way back.

  92. PHILIP DEFRANCO PLEASE READ!!!
    In regards to the James Harden controversy: Would you say you love the USA, even though our country (along with our president) fail to admit how much minorities in this country are suppressed?? Would you say the same thing if a celebrity said this in another country? Just because you say you love a country, it doesn't mean that you support everything the country believes. Personally, I believe that when Harden apologized, he apologized for the SCANDAL (NOT for what Morey said) and said he loves China as in he loves the fans!
    The CNN reporter was simply trying to add more fuel to the fire. Her question was not a basketball question, it was a POLITICAL question. She was simply trying to get a headline. James Harden is currently IN CHINA, A COMMUNIST COUNTRY , where they don't have the privilege of speaking their mind like we do here in America. While Harden is in China is still an American, he is OBLIGED to obey to China's laws because he is in China. The PR rep was there for HIS protection, not just to prevent controversial questions from being asked. China threatened to cut relations with the NBA, over a TWEET. Imagine if James Harden would have VOCALLY said he supported those fighting for their freedom in Hong Kong, while he was in China? His safety would be highly compromised.
    You can love a country and disagree with their politics just like you can be friends with someone and disagree on politics. Our opinions are what make us unique and different, and our differences our what make this country great! Instead of critiquing or adding fuel to celebrities or professional players not using their platform to explicitly say they support the protests in Hong Kong, why don't we do something to actually help out those in fighting for freedom in Hong Kong? By not anything and critiquing what others think, you're simply contributing to the problem and not the solution.

  93. Wake up people, Turkey is getting away with Genocide in 2019, they got off Free in 1912-1915 and they’re doing it again in 2019, we didn’t stop genocide then, if we don’t stop genocide now it’s going to happen to your people sooner or later

  94. 18:44 Your teacher, when told your dog ate your homework

  95. On the Ellen thing…holy shit, people. How did you miss her point so entirely? The point is to show kindness to everyone. It's a lot harder for someone to make you the villain when you're being kind and generous. You don't change people through hate. You change them through kindness, understanding and showing them their misconceptions are entirely false.

    [Leaving this here because I've not finished the video and there will likely be more to comment on.]

  96. The blippi thing is stupid. Most kid's traveling stage performances have actors not associated with the production.

  97. The previous president gorge bush is a huge black mark on our counties history. I hate the guy for selfish reasons and hope his name never gets brought up. Fade into obscurity

  98. PHILIP DEFRANCO PLEASE READ!!!

  99. Dumb fucks, really know little about what’s going on with China.

  100. Saudi Arabia's Foreign Ministry condemning other countries?
    That's a joke, right?
