Kyra: JD, “U Can Meet W/ the Psychologist”

John: Kyra, “And, I’ll introduce you to the anger management counselor.” Rather than showering each other with amorous pecks this morning, CNN Newsroom anchor Kyra Phillips and American Morning co-host John Roberts pecked at each other during a playful lovers spat on CNN Newsroom.

During his segment entitled “Why People Snap,” John recapped for his fiancee Kyra and her audience an earlier segment on AM of the same title with clinical psychologist Jeff Gardere and anger management counselor Janet Pfeiffer. After he did, Kyra began to discuss Pfeiffer’s technique to avoid striking out, saying, “You know it’s interesting, you’re saying that your anger management counselor said, ‘SWAT’…What is it? Stop, walk, and?”* Chuckling, John said, “Stop, walk, and talk. And, not my anger management counselor [but] the one we had on the program this morning.” Smiling and shaking her head, Kyra replied, “I was going to say that’s not mine either.”

Subsequently, Kyra compared the Pfeiffer SWAT technique and the police SWAT (special weapons and tactics) team since they are both intended to tamp down the “threat of violence or anything drastic.” When John laughed at her comparison as being incongruous, Kyra explained, “They’re not supposed to get violent, not supposed to use the weapons, okay? Just the tactics. So, you remember that SWAT.” Sweetly smiling, she continued, “I guess you and I both can practice that next time.”

Not willing to give his lady the last word, John jested, “Alright. And, I’ll introduce you to the anger management counselor.” With raised eyebrows and a serpentine smile, she acerbically riposted, “Yeah. Uh, huh. You can meet with the psychologist: You need a lot of clinical psychology.” In response to her rapier wit, a reddened John shook his head, smiled broadly, and muttered something inaudible under his breath. With John not fully in amative obeisance, Kyra coolly and saccharinely bid her beau adieu, saying, “Alright. Love you. Bye.”
