Gina Loudon, known as Dr. Gina, is a conservative media personality.[1] She was a member of the 2020 Donald Trump campaign's media advisory board and the co-chair of Women for Trump 2020.[2][3] She is a member at Mar-a-Lago and the current face of Citizen Voters Inc.[4]

She has said that scientific evidence shows President Trump to be "the most sound-minded person to ever occupy the White House."[5][1] In 2018, The Daily Beast reported that Loudon's book falsely described her as having a PhD in psychology; she has a PhD in human and organization systems from Fielding Graduate University, an online school.[1] On October 8, 2019, Loudon filed a libel suit against The Daily Beast in New York County Supreme Court.[3] The suit was dropped on April 8, 2020.[6]



The Daily Beast reported that Loudon's book falsely claimed that she has a PhD in psychology.[1] Loudon does have a PhD in human and organization systems from Fielding Graduate Institute (now the Fielding Graduate University), an online school.[1] A personal assistant for Loudon responded to the reports, saying that Loudon's PhD was in the field of psychology.[5] The publishing company, Regnery, told the outlet that they were responsible for several misleading statements about Loudon's qualifications, including referring to her as "America's favorite psychological expert".[1]

Radio and TV career[edit]

Loudon hosted a radio talk show on KJSL[7] in St. Louis, Missouri, and WYDE-FM[8] in Alabama. She also hosted a television show called America Trends on the Youtoo America TV Channel that aired on Time Warner Cable and Comcast.[8] On December 1, 2020, Louden began hosting her own 7pm EST/4pm PST show on Real America's Voice, Dr. Gina Prime Time.[9][10] The show ended on January 13, 2023.[11]

Appearance on Wife Swap[edit]

Loudon and her husband, former Missouri state senator John William Loudon, appeared on the show Wife Swap when they swapped with a polyamorous and bisexual family. Loudon was the first wife to ever walk off of the set.[12]


In her 2018 book Mad Politics: Keeping Your Sanity in a World Gone Crazy, Loudon wrote that she has scientific evidence showing Trump to be "the most sound-minded person to ever occupy the White House."[1][13] Loudon has neither a psychology degree nor a license to practice clinical psychology.[1][5] Trump endorsed her book in September 2018, tweeting "Gina is Great!" At the time, the book was ranked No. 436,949 in Amazon's bestsellers rank.[5] Shortly after the tweet, the book ranking jumped to 2,590.[14]

Personal life[edit]

Loudon met her husband while she was attending William Woods University.[citation needed] They married in 1990 at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, his alma mater.[citation needed] Loudon and her husband are Presbyterian.[citation needed] [8] The Loudon family have five children, and currently reside in Palm Beach, Florida.[citation needed]

She gave the commencement address at her alma mater, William Woods University, in 2015.[15]
