Joy Behar loves nothing more than trying to make Donald Trump look crazy on her ridiculous talk show The View.
When Dr. Phil appeared on the morning show on Thursday, Behar desperately tried to make him diagnose Trump as a narcissist who is therefore unfit to be president. Dr. Phil, however, wasn’t having any of it.
IJ Review reported that Dr. Phil instead chose to educate Behar and her audience on what narcissism really is. Here’s the exchange they had via a transcript:
BEHAR: Check.[ Applause ]
DR. PHIL: Two, is preoccupied with fantasies of success power or brilliance. Which she said.[
BEHAR: Check [Applause ]
DR.PHIL: Okay. Three, believes that he or she is special or unique. [laughs]
BEHAR: check check!
DR. PHIL: Can only be understood by special people.
DR. PHIL: Four, requires excessive admiration.
BEHAR: Oh, check, check, check, check!
DR. PHIL: Has a sense of entitlement, which means is very thin skinned.
BEHAR: Oh, check, check, check!
DR. PHIL: Is interpersonally exploitative—
DR. PHIL: Lacks empathy, has the inability to stand in other people’s shoes.
BEHAR: You know like when he makes fun of people that are handicapped—
DR. PHIL: I’m just reading it. You interpret it however you want. Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her. Shows arrogant and haughty behavior.
BEHAR: Case closed.
Whoopi Goldberg then noted that “a lot” of people exhibit some of those traits, which is when Dr. Phil really brought things home.
“Well, if you — that’s a lot of people. And if you take out everybody that has any of those characteristics then you’re going to take out a lot of people including some at this table,” he said.
“Yourself included?” Behar remarked.
“Absolutely,” Dr. Phil agreed.
Clearly offended, Behar barked that Obama did not have narcissistic disorder and accused Dr. Phil of saying “all presidents” have suffered some form of the disorder.
“I didn’t say they all have it,” Dr. Phil fired back. “I said most leaders are under a lot of stress and pressure so a lot of it will show anxiety, depression at different times. Lot of leaders will have some affliction at different times because the pressure and the demands of the office.”
We’re glad to see that Dr. Phil refused to take Joy Behar’s nonsense!
