“I’m Givin’ Ya a Big Hug Over the Radio”: Sean Vannity Hosts “Dr.” Phil on Radio Show to Give . . . Financial Advice?
By Debbie Schlussel
Two egomaniac phonies populated one radio show today and there wasn’t nearly enough room to fit their combined conceit and non-existent credentials/knowledge base.
Yup, Sean Hannity–today, on his nationally syndicated radio show–hosted anti-Israel advice charlatan “Dr.” Phil. The only two people in the world whose mammoth pomposity is a veritable mirror–Vannity and the fake “doctor” shared a microphone. And they probably should have shared a bed, such was the mutual admiration society of these two disgusting walking exercises in vapidity.
Incredible, Vannity had faux-doctor Phil on to dispense “Financial Advice.” His financial knowledge consisted of such Wall Street savvy gems as “Ahm givin’ ya a big hug over the radio” and other pseudo-honky-tonk psychobabble.
My favorite part was when he was telling a woman how to get a loan, when she and her husband had already been rejected by a bank.
Incredible. This guy isn’t even a real doctor. And now he’s a financial guru.
To paraphrase this mustachioed fraud, “An’ howz that workin’ for ya?” It reminds me when his wife, Mrs. Phil, went on Oprah to give women advice about menopause and depression. Hello . . . you’re not a doctor, Bride of Phil-enstein. You’re not even a fake doctor, the way your hubby is. Oh, and that was after she wrote a women’s advice book (I advise you to marry a rich dude with a dumb talk show). When the heck will these people have some sense of shame? Or, at least, a tad of humility.
“Dr.” Phil’s uber-twaddle and psycho-hucksterism is supposed to be conservatism? Or financial advice? Hilarious. Sean Vannity is showing his cracks (and brain on crack), big-time. There’s no “there,” there. What’s next–Jerry Springer? (In real life, he’s actually smarter than both of those idiots, when he doesn’t pay prostitutes with checks.)
My definition of a true fairness doctrine: when both of these empty shells disappear from our airwaves. Neither would be missed.
