Boosted Nova In my experience, the PDS does not gaslight or participate in outrage. How many times have you heard Phil just tell a person to just go F themselves when he thinks people are being pussies? I don't think you understand what the PDS piece is about, nor do you understand the study itself. Based on your comment, I actually looked up and read the study. The GWU study concludes 2,975 “excess deaths”. That DOES NOT mean that the deaths themselves were estimated or that there were not in fact that many people who died. It means that there were 2,975 ACTUAL deaths that were PREVENTABLE. These extra deaths occurred due to a lack of proper resources (such as clean water, power, or shelter) for the people of Puerto Rico. The GWU study could have actually tacked on more if it was really a partisan attack, BUT they capped the overall culpability of FEMA due to issues that were reported with Puerto Rico's own emergency response teams. The report DIRECTLY proves that what you typed above is false. Besides that, Phil's story is more about how Trump specifically is just making the news about him when it's really NOT. The report came out on FEMA, not Trump. So in my opinion, if Trump would just STFO and let the news cycle run, no one would have thought about it again in 2 days! Instead, that narcissistic orange peel just let his 7-year old ego get all butt-hurt again and then start Tweeting... Trump is a whiny little ____. Then again, so was Hillary. Jesus, where is Ben Franklin when you need him....

I know I'm "late to the party" but I wanted to comment on the NC anti-science law. I was living in NC when the hurricane and then tropical storm Jasmine hit, and the damage the flooding did to the state while terrible, brought to light a long-term and deliberate problem. The laws regarding the pig farms in the state had been relaxed so far that there really were no provisions or plans for the tragedy in terms of loss of life of the animals or the fact that the pig pens "septic systems" flooded creating significant areas of backflow. As much as it bothers me that any Governmental body would choose to turn a blind eye to inconvenient truths I can't say that it surprises me.

@Philip DeFranco 45 has never met lie that positions himself as not only capable, but as near superhero, because he is just that much better than anyone and Everyone. Phil, 45 is the PERFECTION of a Malignant Narcissist. In case your wondering, this Psychological Diagnosis is a PERSONALITY DISORDER, with most similar Personality Disorder is being a Sociopath. I wish I was kidding. This diagnosis is most similar in diagnosing as is HIV to AIDS. HIV is the STI, which if not treated with current, and ever increasing successful treatment, can bring a viral load down to undetectable. In addition, with regimented use of Truveda®️. Has to rate, been an extremely successful prophylactic use can prevent HIV. Transmission at, so far, 100%. Those who have contracted HIV, have failed to use Truveda®️ in a regimented way, skipping days at a stretch of taking the med and/or engaging incredibly dangerous behavior, most predominant of them sharing needles with “pnp” by “slamming” or injecting crystal meth directly into veins, then sharing used needles.
But I digress, people in 45’s Administration are increasingly leaking conversations or plans that are just batshit crazy. When Speaker of the House, died in the wool, Paul “Damian” Davis Ryan Jr., a Dyed-in-the-Wool Neo-Con, GOP Wunderkind, calls the press to flat out say, there is no reason to believe that the new number is statically accurate, implying 45 has ridden his barrel right over Niagara Falls, that is hard show distancing himself, and to some extent, the party, as far away from 45 as is possible.
There are, depending on your source, I use the traditional DSM-V, well until it is supplanted by the the DSM-VI. However the distinction for Malignant Narcissist was side stepped by the committee focused on personality disorders. This is the DSM-VI is coming out so soon after DSM-V,. To many Psychiatric Professionals were more concerned with stigma and being HYPER PC, that pretended it wasn’t there for the DSM-V. This left, far more Mental Health Patients, than you would think, possibly even imagine, out in the cold, suffering from a Personality Disorder that is no longer acknowledged. From the DSM-IV, A patient must hit 5 out 9 criteria in order to be classified as a Malignant Narcissist. This because it is akin to telling a patient, “Oh, not for nothin’, but you are clearly a Malignant Narcissist. Remember, 45 only needs to hit 5 of these 9, but he BLOWS them ALL up:
A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:
(1) has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
(2) is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
(3) believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
(4) requires excessive admiration
(5) has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
(6) is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
(7) lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
(8) is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
(9) shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

This makes 45 a Clear and Present Danger to the United States in every way I can conceive. His own administrations leaks his absolutely INSANE ideas because it turns out they truly are Patriotic and have never tasted the 45 Fruit Punch.

Hi Phil, I live in Wilmington, NC and am just now catching up on last weeks PDS’. I just got home and am seeing the devastation and loss that my town and friends are dealing with. To learn about how our government set us up for failure is enraging. While I did not live in NC in 2012 this is waking me up that I need to stay on top of what local government is doing; not just national. Thank you for highlighting issues like this. I know that you lived in NC for part of your life and am not sure if you have family there but I do hope if you do they all faired well in the storm. Keep doing what you’re doing! ❤️

Considering the Puerto Rican government held back aid supplies to make the Trump administration look bad (blaming it on "bad roads" and "lack of diesel" which was also being provided), I feel like there is a lot of truth to the "conspiracy" of the death toll being fudged. Especially when you also consider that the reporters and investigative journalists who had also looked into this were fucking liberals. https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/09/28/554297787/puerto-rico-relief-goods-sit-undistributed-at-ports

(10:10) Phil I just want you to know 32A to 34DD is not inclusive bra sizes whatsoever. A small is a 32-34. They have no M L or XL band sizes. Also many women have cup sizes up to H. Their brand only includes sized small torsos with big or small boobs relative to their frame. Not very inclusive. You can have a perfectly healthy weight, and still have a DDD+ cup, or larger than 34 band size.
No, I don't think its wrong for her, or her "shaming" women in any way to release a line that limited. 34DD is the average bra size for women, so I'm sure that it was the best range to pick, since her line is brand new. I just wanted to point out that you shouldn't be using the sizes she's selling as an example of "inclusive".

De Franco, stop the bs. I am puertorrican and I was here in the hurricanes. Trump is correct. The one telling wrong numbers was the local governor and de deep state. When Trump asked for a number of casualties by the hurricanes he was told 16. It eventually raised to 68 according CDC. The rest were later by food and medicine shortage and the lack of power and proper medical treatment. The locals made many mistakes and sabotaged the relieve efforts making harder to distribute the supplies. The USA send billions in help and goods but the local democrats in government made a poor distribution.

Soooo, let's get this straight, if clean drinking water was a major cause of the deaths, how can we not draw a line to local government not doing their jobs, placing a large portion of blame at their feet, making their accusations toward others irrelevant.
If Detroit got hit with a devastating crisis and you had people complaining about the tax payers not making it a shinning Metropolis that rivals all, and all you did was to fix the devastation that occurred from the tragic event. Wouldn't you be pissed off too. All I can say is if you have never seen this island, it's culture of political corruption, and lack of preparation for the inevitable over instant gratification I suggest taking a trip and putting your political correct hat away long enough for you to see what is really going on.
The overwhelming amount of truck drivers charging doule, then triple, then quadruple for doing their jobs was well documented, and forced the federal government to send the national guard in to transport goods and services,
this attitude is the norm for its population, overwhelming majority of these people will scam whatever they can from whoever they can. Make the trip and try your best to keep an open mind, then get back to us.

Deaths after a hurricane, are not deaths from a hurricane no matter what may be connected to it. While i admit the president needs to stop saying random idiotic things every second the 3000 is not relevant to the hurricane, that's just the failure of the government & the poor location (island). The man who died in Boston during the fire and explosions, he didn't die to either of those, he was crushed by part of a chimney. Just because one has caused the other does not mean the other should be held responsible. Its like shooting someone then saying she told me to and she gets arrested, even if she did say it, no one in their right god damn mind would ever believe that she is the only cause.

Regarding Revolve: Lena Dunham has the best intentions to help causes for women. The problem is that it is always seen through her white, corporate feminist viewpoints . Yet again, it failed. Yet again, she wrote another letter washing her hands. This usually happens because her ideas are not thoroughly conceived and lack of check/balances in her inner professional group. Honestly, Lena is always trying to support good mainstream causes but she just can't seem to get it right. That's what happens when feminism is seen as a fashion show rather than a sociopolitical movement.

I relate to NC right now. I live in a place that had a "100 year flood" when I was a kid. After the disaster relief our city and others along the river were given budgets to repair. Us and our sister city used it to build huge dikes and flood systems and to reinforce small dams. Farther down another city rebuilt their infrastructure and repaired everything flooded. 12 years later we got hit by another flood that almost reached the "100 year" levels. Our walls saved us. South, however, got washed out all over again. And we ended up sending aid, shipping college students to help sand bag, helping out with the aftermath.
We should always take preventative measures, regardless of being sure or not if it will happen again.

I don't like the backlash against Revolve for one reason:
They were making a good-faith effort to do real good in the world, and while they massively fucked it up, that's the sort of thing where you have to afford a little forgiveness and say "hey, hey, stop for a second - I know you were trying to help, but it's gone wrong here and here, fix those issues and try again. You've got this."
Lashing out at folk who are honestly (but poorly) trying to help just creates a feeling of 'well fine, last time I ever do anything for you fuckers'. It helps no one.
Now when people are being openly malicious, or doing token niceties in bad faith as purely an effort to raise money by capitalizing on a trend that deserves more respect, then absolutely they deserve all the vitriol and lashback the internet can throw at them.
But when someone is actually trying to earnestly add some real tangible positivity to the world, it shouldn't matter how hard they fuck it up - we should be nice and encourage them to try again. And if they can't ever seem to get it right, then maybe just gently push the company to drop the initiative and just make a charity donation or something. We should never punish people for trying to really help.

So for everyone running their mouths about how Puerto Rican officials should have been the ones distributing the supplies and aid that were delivered by FEMA, a couple of notes.
1. EVERYONE in Puerto Rico lost power for over a month. Everyone. All of Puerto Rico was without power. That’s not an issue of poor infrastructure, that was an effect of the hurricane. So, and this should go without saying, but here we are, no one had power, no one could use cell phones or internet, no one had food, and everyone needed disaster relief, INCLUDING government officials.
2. It absolutely is FEMA’s job to distribute these supplies and aid to the people living in the areas they serve. It is not their job to dump supplies on an air strip and then leave. If you aren’t sure about this, you should do some research.
3. Puerto Rico is part of the United States. So when you talk about their government failing them you’re making the same point as Phil. The federal government, who ultimately accepts responsibility for disaster relief, did indeed fail them.
4. Do you still feel upset/confused? Are you wondering if things are different because Puerto Rico is a territory rather than a state? Short answer, no. Long answer, here we are on the internet! It’s full of information and I suggest that you go find some, perhaps on a website ending .gov or .org. Find a textbook. Ask a librarian. There are lots of ways to answer your question besides posting them in a YouTube comment section phrased as “I’m not sure if...?”. This inevitably turns into you deciding that your guesses are fact and we as a society cannot possibly elevate our public discourse if this is the standard we set for ourselves.
Good luck, and lots of love!

I am no expert in such things but it seems to me that what the President tweeted, while seemingly idiotic, is not the worst part of PhillyD's first story. What sadden me the most is that the people of Puerto Rico relied too heavily on an idiot government instead of trying to take thier safety into their own hands. The same needs to be said for North Carolina. We are, and should be, a self determening spieces and when our govrnment systems fail us we need to look to ourselves for the education and desire to keep us safe. Even something as simple as filling up your bath tub full of clean water just before catastrophe stirkes will go a long way toward keeping your family alive.

Absolutely LOVE seeing Revolve.com get cyber bullied because they were trying to shine the light on "cyber bullies."
edit: Feels like justice porn watching NC get raped by climate denial bills they passed. Too bad the rich fucks that benefit will be fine while the ignorant poor folk take the brunt of the financial hit. They just love feeding the piggies over there...

Odd how that study gets released RIGHT before the midterms. The inflated number was reached through horrible methods. Multiple statisticians have blown that number out of the water. Trump isn't God but he has to be to win with corporate controlled news.

I made it out of Wilmington in time but, there is such limited cell service I have been getting spotty info from family that could not leave. My home is ok for now but, the river is not due to crest till the 19th. My stomach is in knots.

I know this is a bit late but about those shirt designs, they are god awful! Because the print that clarifies the statement is so small it was bound to fail from the beginning. There was no hope of those shirts ever being a success. What would have been better in my opinion was to write positive responses to those quotes and then put the quotes themselves on a heavy card stock tag that promotes and explains the idea behind the line of clothing. That way the person who buys it isn't running around with something offensive emblazoned on their chest. Even if they wanted to keep the offensive quote they could have done better. The set up should have been reversed, with the clarifier up top in larger font, and the quote below in either equal or smaller font, giving emphasis to the explanation and message and not to the offensive material. All around it was just a shitty job and I'm honestly surprised it passed any sort of art/fashion director with any sense at all, accidental release or not.

Any house/building in these areas should minimally be 10ft-X (insert research here) above sea level. The base should be strong asd beams and water repellent brick. And around every house should have beams dug in X feet deep with caps on the surface. When needed government and helpers set these bad boy pillars up (in these pillars around the house and they connect to one another like a shutter. You know those pull down things that liqour stores have in the ghetto so no one can fuck wit it.
