In Brief:

During a heated exchange between Bill Maher and Dr. Phil McGraw, McGraw wouldn’t back down when voicing his opinion on our current president and the agendas being pushed.


The Background: 

Dr. Phil gave Maher pause when discussing his plans moving forward following the end of his long running syndicated talk show.

​​On Sunday's installment of Maher's "Club Random" podcast, McGraw teased his upcoming project as his long-running syndicated talk show ends later this year, telling Maher he intends to tackle "concerns" facing the country since the nation is "headed for a cliff."

"Major reasons being?" Maher asked. 

"Well, it depends on what category you want to talk about," McGraw responded. "And look… I stayed non-political because I think there's idiocy on both sides… I’m not a big fan of our president or the last one, but I respect the office of the president."

"And one of them is much more of a threat to the republic that would be the 45th, would you not agree?" Maher asked. "C'mon, a threat to the republic Joe Biden? No. Joe Biden is a return to normalcy yet a Democrat who is yes, too much ensorcelled by his fringe left. He will not ever tell them to sit down and shut up. But I will take that bargain, [as] much as I don't like it, and it's bitter, I will take that bargain over Trump. Come on." 

"Well, I'm concerned about both sides. And I'm particularly concerned about this woke agenda that's being pushed," McGraw responded before railing against indoctrination at colleges. 


Notable Quotes: 

"It's not politics that determine the outcome of society, it's culture. I don't care about politics. You go back to the beginning… Democrats and Republicans have been in control about 50-50. They've had control of the House and Senate while they were in control the presidency about 50-50, they've had it not in control 50-50. And look where we are. They both come up about the same place. I don't care about that. I care about our culture." – Dr. Phil
