VIA| Dr. Phil made an appearance on Fox’s The Kelly File to talk about “entitlement culture.”
According to The Blaze, Dr. Phil described to Megyn Kelly the obsession with self and fame that has caused “entitlement culture” to run rampant among America’s young people.
“We do have a generation that, I think, we have raised with a great deal of entitlement,” Dr. Phil said,
Dr. Phil went on to talk about a guest who is scheduled to appear on his show on Friday. The guest is a 43 year-old man named Kris who has been chasing his dream of becoming a rock and roll star his entire life. Dr. Phil, however, describes him as a “poser” who is “addicted to fame.”
Just like a drug addict, his quest for fame has taken a toll on his loved ones both emotionally and financially.
“He has basically tried to buy fame, has bled his family – his mother and father – for $1.7 million,” Dr. Phil said.
When Kelly asked Dr. Phil how we as a culture can get people like Kris out of that “dark place,” the talk show host gave a blunt response.
“This is the greatest country in the world, this is the greatest people in the world, but sometimes we forget common sense,” Dr. Phil said. “We’ve got to stop rewarding bad behavior in America. When people don’t work and produce, then they need to get kicked to the curb.”
“Get a damn job. Carry your own weight,” he concluded.
