ROC, ELI5 if you can. I'm no fan of Dr. Phil but I fail to see how this matters. It's certainly not as bad as as a David Duke endorsement.

And Donald Trump was a regular on Howard Stern. Who cares? People seek a platform. Especially ambitious politicians.

I just thought it was funny, especially since we currently have a reality TV star as POTUS.

I've made guest appearances on TV. So what? Does that make me a reality TV star. ROC, you really are stretching it.

Did Dr. Phil send a gushy letter to Obama claiming you are "so like minded" after your guest appearances?

Yuck.

She also appeared on the Daily Show when John Stewart was the host and the Colbert Report when that show existed.

Lots of politicians go on shows. Especially talk shows.

It doesn't make her a reality television show star. Especially since none of those shows are considered reality television.

I know, hence my #4.

That being said, I was wondering why the LA Times put this on their front page, since they have never been a fan of Dr. Phil.

I know television genres.

Talk shows aren't categorized as "reality television".

You could call her a talk show star. If you have the urge.

Well you have a point there. Deepak Chopra appearing on Oprah Winfrey certainly has a tenuous connection to reality.

It's a shame someone with your penchant for trolling isn't being compensated by Russian Cyber Command.

As far as we can tell, BoydBadweekCooper's last incarnation was "Dirkstruan", who vanished in fit of self loathing.

When did dirkstruan vanish?

This SUNTZUMEOW came around about a month ago. And the attacks on me just strike as being from someone who has been around the DR a while and the posting style eminates faint smells of boyd.

If her appearance on his show disqualifies her then everyone who has ever been associated with Donald Trump is far more disqualified.
Sheeple is totally disqualified because he is aware of Donald Trump's comments about women yet he is still his God. Well, at least until his new orders come in from the Kremlin.

Dirkstruan also posts as blackheartsun, albeit very infrequently.
