Dr. Phil Supports Bruce Jenner’s Transition On Jimmy Kimmel Live — And Then Ruins It With A Joke!

no title

We guess it’s a good thing Dr. Phil isn’t conducting the landmark upcoming interview with Bruce Jenner.

The host appeared on Wednesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel, saying that if he were the interviewer, he’d start by telling the Olympian:

“If it’s what you want to do, do it. I mean, what the hell’s it matter what anybody else thinks?”

We’re happy to hear this take — some common sense that America needs to get behind!

Unfortunately, then Dr. Phil kind of threw his own open-minded spirit out the window with his next comment, which is not only making light of Bruce’s reported transition — but is also a bit ageist!

Dr. Phil said he would follow up with:

“You’re almost 80; what’s the point?”

Watch the doc try to dig himself out of this awkward hole with some help from Jimmy (below)!
