After this man likened COVID-19 to drowning deaths in swimming pools on national television in attempt to strengthen the idea that this pandemic isn't a big deal he lost all credibility to me. Yeah, maybe if drowning in swimming pools was something I could catch at school or at the super market or at work, but no. That is not the case, sir.

Awesome!!!! Loved all these podcasts!!! I am a homebody so this pandemic is not a big deal to me, but it is a huge deal to other family members, so that has been hard. It is not to hurt them we just know the grandparents have underlying issues so we don’t want to put their lives in jeopardy. We want them to be around to see their grandchildren grow. My husband also fortunately still is working so if we are immune to the covid an give it to them we will be devastated.

saw Pastor Jakes on your show today, thought I saw that he was on one of your Pod Casts. He mentioned his grandmother - now that's someone I would have loved to chat with!

Huge fan of the podcast. Saw a Fox interview that contradicts everything the podcast has thus far taught me. Therefore based on what Dr. Phil has taught me about getting rid of fake people. Unsubscribe

Hugely disappointed in Dr. Phil's tv appearance on Laura Ingram displaying total ignorance of Coronavirus replication factor, and him comparing it to drownings and smoking deaths, and saying we dont close down businesses for those. When social distancing works, it always looks like we went to far, but it prevented millions of deaths. Dr. Phil, you lost my respect and you should learn a thing or two about epidemiology.

Please talk about something else besides corona virus. This is crazy, this is all we have heard for months. Can we please just talk about something else! Funny videos or jokes. It's so bad I cant even watch anything without listening to corona virus. Please Dr.Phil, I have nothing but the highest respect for you and your show! Respectfully your fan Carmen

The name of Obama's healthcare plan is the Affordable Care Act or the A.C.A. Republicans started calling it ObamaCare as a way to deride it. Now many moronic conservatives think the ACA is a good thing & ObamaCare is bad. I'm kind of shocked that Jimmy & Phil think Obama named it after himself. It quite literally saved my life (uterine cancer), so I don't care what it's called - I love it!

Thank you so much for this information. one question I do have is, once a person contracts this disease is an immunity built up against it? I heard health care people say this is the first wave of the disease, and that it will come again.
