Guess who just got face-time on NBC’s “Today Show” with Katrina victims? Why it was none other than Dr. Phil–the annoying mustachioed TV psychologist. (Would the word “cheesy” be redundant in a Dr. Phil description?)
First, I write about Oprah’s obtuse live “Look at Me in N’Awlins Death Crypt” show, tomorrow. Now, it seems only fitting that Ms. O’s preferred psychologist, Dr. Phil, too, would use these poor victims for his slimy talk show. Who’s next, Jerry Springer?
Dr. Phil told Matt Lauer that these people are devastated and many know they will never return to their homes. Thanks for the tip. Gee, tell me something I don’t already know. He needed a Ph.D. in psychology to figure that out?
Look for these victims, whom Dr. Phil “visited” in the Houston Astrodome, to be victimized again, on an upcoming episode of “Dr. Phil.”
