Phil McGraw, aka Dr. Phil, raised eyebrows with how he described Donald Trump in an interview with the former president that aired Thursday.

“I know you got a thick skin,” McGraw told the notoriously thin-skinned presumptive GOP presidential nominee who frequently lashes out at those who attack him and, in the same sit-down, claimed revenge “can be justified.”

“You’re not one of those people that’s afflicted with the need to be loved by strangers. I get that,” McGraw added.

“I think that’s true,” replied Trump.

McGraw was widely criticized for conducting the interview with Trump and giving the convicted ex-POTUS a platform in the first place.

The former TV therapist’s “thick skin” praise, meanwhile, drew accusations of gaslighting and more.
