Is The Dr. Phil Show just "Boomer rage-bait?" [View all]

The 1 minute video clip is staged.
And it was successful, garnering the teen her sought popularity.

I’d think most certainly the show’s seasoned professionals knew full well this was a scheme by the mother b daughter pair, and were totally fine with enabling the performance piece.

In the Reddit discussion, the cynicism runs deep, and snarky.
They generally assume it’s a “boomer rage-bait” show, so do you expect.

But the show’s audience was entertained.
The participants rewarded.
Who are the victims ?

Imho our culture is getting stranger by the day.
I’m just feeling more and more confused lol !
