Dr. Phil McGraw visited the “The View” on Monday to put to rest the accusations that have been brewing over Donald Trump and his rumored obsession with daughter Ivanka.
“Well, you know, he doesn’t have an edit button, he doesn’t have a muzzle,” McGraw said.
The show’s discussion stemmed from Trump’s remarks on “The View” nine years ago when he complimented his daughter’s figure and joked, “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
Trump doubled down on that sentiment in last week’s Rolling Stone interview saying, “What a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father…”
The left-leaning blogosphere pounced on those comments and has been using his jokes to try and stop the seemingly unstoppable force behind Trump’s growing popularity.
But Dr. Phil told “The View” panel that he’s known the Trumps “for a long time” and assured them there’s nothing nefarious going on.
McGraw said Trump isn’t feeling any real consequences over the things he says and his popularity comes from a constituency that’s tired of a politically correct culture that has run amok.
“Right now, I think we are so overly politically correct that people are living vicariously through him saying the stuff that everybody wishes they could say.”
But as for Trump and his daughter?
“There’s really nothing creepy going on there,” McGraw insisted.
