Dr. Nancy: Wilson's Outcry 'A Gut Punch To Me'

Talk about an empathetic doctor, someone who really feels her patient's pain . . .

On her MSNBC show this afternoon, here's how Dr. Nancy Snyderman described her reaction to Rep. Joe Wilson's "you lie!":

"It was a gut punch to me."
Snyderman was kibitzing Pres. Obama's health care speech to Congress with NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd.
NANCY SNYDERMAN: Chuck, one of the things that I think, really, it was a gut punch to me last night was watching the behavior of Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina . . . Chuck, it was such appalling behavior.

CHUCK TODD: He's become the best tool that this White House could have found. I mean they couldn't have created a foil better than Joe Wilson.
