Dr. Jennifer Thomas watched the recent interview of disgraced former road racing cyclist Lance Armstrong, as he described his illegal use of performance enhancing drugs, resulting in the stripping of every title won since 1998. As a trained psychologist, Dr. Jennifer Thomas noticed Armstrong's word choice and body language, as she expressed concern during her interview with reporter Jeff Mills of the News & Record Newspaper.
