Dr. Phil slammed for saying shutdowns deadlier than COVID-19: ‘People’s lives are being destroyed’

Washington Times

Celebrity psychologist Phil McGraw is facing a wave of criticism after he claimed on Fox News that the statewide shutdowns due to the coronavirus are more deadly than the virus itself.

Mr. McGraw, better known as Dr. Phil, appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” Thursday to discuss how anxiety and depression are affecting Americans as they isolate themselves in their homes.

“This is invisible,” he said. “I can’t show you an X-ray of depression, I can’t show you an X-ray of anxiety, but the fact of the matter is, the longer this lockdown goes on, the more vulnerable people get.

  1. If a fart can make it past your underwear and pants, do you really think the corona isn’t going to go through your cloth mask

  2. I’ve never been a Dr. Phil fan, but here I think he makes some important observations about how this “lockdown” is affecting some people. I talk to friends, I hear stirrings, I observe myself, and some of what he says is certainly true.

    As for the children… Yeah, we all want healthy homeschooling, but this transition time is still hard on them and on parents, especially, as Phil says with parents having to both teach and worry about paying the bills.

    The uprising might have to break everything down before we build it back up and humanity once again can move forward, yeah, with the dignity of The Bill of Rights, and the innate drive of a people wanting to keep learning, growing, experiencing.

    I bet in celebdom there are more and more divides happening. Imagine THEIR neurosis in all this? Ha!! Makes us look like the stable ones. Maybe that’s ’cause we are.



    1. Yesterday I got reprimanded in a store because of not social distancing. A karen didn’t like that I was only five and a half feet away from her.

      We’re having to contend with neurotics who are complying.


      1. Satire

        The virus can travel 6-0” but not 6’-1”
        It can live on all surfaces except shit from Amazon ,
        It does not live on anything from Target , Walmart Lowe’s or Home Depot or anything grocery store
        It’s only deadly in bars , restaurants , small businesses, hair solons and especially churches
        And it cannot live on food , but only if you get it to go

  3. Re Broadcast: Thanks Henry, for expanding on this. I did not see Phil’s other angle. I wish I had more people around me like you have around you. I have loved ones in the other camp. But I have a few allies here and that is gold. We iz ready to do what we can.
