Dr. Phil spoke out about Bruce Jenner‘s transition, and he had some very interesting things to say…

While on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday (April 22, 2015), Dr. Phil talked to host Jimmy Kimmel about Jenner’s transition.

Kimmel asked Dr. Phil, “I was wondering if it breaks your heart that Bruce Jenner is going to speak to Diane Sawyer on Friday night, instead of coming to your show?”

Dr. Phil replied it would be “boring to talk to me about that.” Why? “First off, I would just say look, if it’s what you want to do, do it,” Dr. Phil told the host. “I mean what the hell does it matter what anybody else thinks? That would be my first point.”

He then explained how the rest of the interview would go. “That would be the first 30 seconds,” he told Kimmel. “Then I guess we’d spent the next hour and 59 minutes saying, ‘you’re almost 80, what’s the point?'”
