      Yesterday, at the end of his show, Dr. Phil demolished Christie. Almost the entire hour was devoted to a woman who was clueless and in denial until her husband was arrested for being a serial rapist.  Towards the end he interviewed a crisis management consultant to help the wife.  He recited a list of famous people who had been the consultant’s clients. Then he said that those who didn’t hire her didn’t have a brain.  Then he showed footage of Christie denying Bridgegate. The parallel between the clueless wife who was in denial and Christie’s denials was obvious. The consultant said all politics is local. Dr. Phil said that politics can be personal and for anyone sitting on that bridge waiting in traffic it was very personal. They sell CDs of the shows, so you can get a copy.
