Television psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw welcomed a woman and her family on his show Monday that believes that she’s in a relationship with Russia President Vladimir Putin and is helping him and President Donald Trump solve world issues.
A concerned family joined the show saying that their mother, Jennifer, doesn’t care about them because she believes she’s doing the work of “the Lord” to save the world with Putin and Trump.
While Trump has denied that he and Putin work together on running the United States and other global concerns, but many of Trump’s supporters believe otherwise. MSNBC ran a special on the Q-Anon conspiracy theorists Monday, many of whom believe their site is the only factual news site and reports from any other outlet are lies.
Jennifer also believes that world leaders are following her on social media because they’re aware she is a kind of prophet who can deliver information. She said that she and Putin communicate through the color of his ties.
According to her family, Jennifer believes she will soon be Putin’s wife and “Mother of Russia.” She’s had visions that she’s going to give birth to a little girl that would be his child and she’s already started buying clothes for the child.
She explained that she frequently has prophecies and visions, one of which showed her being picked up by the presidential plane and arriving back in Moscow with her. She said that when she saw Putin wearing his cross necklace, she knew she had to stop everything she was doing to help him.
She said that she worked on the Trump campaign, though that has not been corroborated by the campaign. On at least two occasions she has contacted the government saying she feared Trump would be assassinated and was concerned for his well-being.
She has yet to be diagnosed with a personality disorder, but will likely be given professional help long-term.
Her family is determined to get her back and help her to stop the visions. Jennifer said that she loves her dogs more than her children.

Cynicism may be the real threat to impeachment
Cynicism is to democratic politics what rust is to motor vehicles. Both are corrosive if left unchecked. Rust will destroy a vehicle, and cynicism, if it becomes endemic, will ultimately destroy democracy.
This thought struck me after some recent conversations with a few friends and acquaintances about the possible impeachment of President Trump. The cynical view of the process is that all politicians are corrupt in one way or another; they act based on self-interest and not in the public interest. In this view, Trump is no different; he is just doing what politicians do. This type of public cynicism may very well be the greatest impediment that Democrats face during the impeachment process. As David Brooks recently wrote in the New York Times, “it’s a lot harder to do impeachment in an age of cynicism, exhaustion and distrust” especially when Trump’s actions are viewed by many as “the kind of corruption that politicians of all stripes have been doing all along.”
Bill Barr warns Trump that Giuliani has become a serious liability for his administration: report
Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, has been vigorously defending the president during the Ukraine scandal and the House impeachment inquiry. But Attorney General William Barr, according to a report by the Washington Post, is worried that the former New York City mayor has become a liability for Trump.
Four Post journalists are reporting that according to “multiple” sources, Barr has warned Trump during several recent conversations that “Giuliani has become a liability and a problem for the administration.”
Experts amazed as GOP counsel Castor offers stunningly weak defense of Trump at hearing
Attorney Steve Castor, the Republican Party's lead counsel in House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings, did his best to defend President Donald Trump -- but many experts believe his best was far from sufficient.
Throughout his opening statement, Castor barely touched upon the core allegations that Trump abused his office in order to pressure a foreign government to launch an investigation into his top rival in the 2020 presidential election.
In fact, Castor spent most of his time attacking Democrats, whom he accused of making up wild charges to bring down the president.
One of Castor's more unique arguments was criticizing Democrats for asking former Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen to testify earlier this year on the grounds that Cohen had already pleaded guilty to lying to Congress. What Castor didn't mention, however, was that Cohen lied to Congress with the explicit intent of defending the president.
