LEFT MEETS RIGHT, THURSDAY ON DR. PHIL
January 21, 2009 (Los Angeles, CA) – It made for a combustible show when Dr. Phil invited political commentators Ann Coulter and Alan Colmes as well as former White House Press Secretary to George W. Bush, Scott McClellan, to DR. PHIL the day after the inauguration.
Dr. Phil had tough questions for his controversial guests and a very vocal audience also weighed in.
The most heated segment occurred when Dr. Phil asked McClellan if his tell-all book betrayed former President Bush. McClellan replied, “No, I stayed true to the truth… When I undertook my book what I wanted to understand was what happened? Why did things go terribly off course and who’s responsible for that?”
Not surprisingly, conservative best selling author Coulter disagreed with McClellan’s assessment suggesting that McClellan did indeed betray his former boss. But she added her opinion was based on “a character thing, it’s not policy disagreement.”
Colmes countered with, “I think another question is did President Bush betray Scott and the United States and the people that voted for him.”
In addition the panelists discuss their thoughts about President Barack Obama and what to expect in the next four years. Can this new administration save the country from financial ruin? David Gardner of the Motley Fool also appears on the show. This episode will air Thursday, January 22 (check local listings).
