Dr. Phil Torches ‘The View’ Co-Hosts Over Impact Of COVID Lockdowns On Kids: ‘That’s A Fact’

Dr. Phil McGraw slammed the leftist co-hosts of ABC’s “The View” this week during an intense discussion about the impacts of COVID lockdowns on school children.

McGraw said that the mental health of children largely began declining in 2008 with the advent of smartphones and social media.

“In like ’08, ’09, smartphones came in and kids stopped living their lives and started watching people live their lives,” he said. “So we saw the biggest spike and the highest levels of depression, anxiety, loneliness, and suicidality since records have ever been kept. And it’s just continued on and on and on.”

“And then COVID hits 10 years later and the same agencies that knew that are the agencies that shut down the schools for 2 years,” he continued. “Who does that? Who takes away the support system for these children? Who takes it away and shuts it down? By the way, when they shut it up they stopped the mandated reporters from being able to see children that were being abused and sexually molested and, in fact, sent them home and abandoned them to their abusers with no way to watch.  And referrals dropped 50-60%.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin snapped back, “There was also a pandemic going on and they were trying to save their lives.”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg agreed, claiming that the government was “trying to save kids’ lives”. “We know a lot of folks who died during this,” she said. “People weren’t laying around eating bonbons —”

McGraw fired back, noting that school aged children were not dying from the pandemic.

“Well, you know what? We’re lucky,” Goldberg claimed. “Maybe we’re lucky they didn’t, because they kept them out of the places that they could be safe because no one wanted to believe we had an issue.”

Co-host Ana Navarro asked McGraw: “Are you saying no school children died of COVID?”

“I’m saying it was the safest group,” McGraw responded. “They were the less vulnerable group, and they suffered and will suffer more from the mismanagement of COVID than they will from the exposure to COVID, and that’s not an opinion, that’s a fact.”
