Jon Gosselin says he felt TERRIBLE for his daughters for having to appear on the "Today" show with Kate this morning ... telling TMZ the whole thing was "horrible" to watch.

Gosselin appeared on "TMZ Live" moments ago and said Kate's humiliating meltdown on live TV this morning shows exactly why the kids shouldn't be forced to participate in a lengthy publicity tour with their mother.

"I’m going to handle this as a family matter," Jon said ... adding, "I don’t want to affect the children anymore."

He is stupid. This is no big deal. Typical teen behavior. There isn't a mother alive who hasn't gotten those looks and had their kids go silent at the most inopportune time (during recitals, plays, introductions to new people etc.). Kate has 8 kids, she is used to this. He acts like he doesn't have 8 kids. No wonder Kate had to tell him what to do, he is like the 9th kid. The dude shot a bullet into the air around his kids for Pete's sake. They teach you about gravity in elementary school.

This video PROVES Jon Gosselin was telling the truth. His daughters are clearly F'ed up!

It's going to be a LONG drive back to Pennsylvania. Kate is probably FREAKING out at them right now for not following her script. You can tell they are terrified of their witch.

Jon is swooping in as if he is Capt'n America bringing even more attention to their humiliation and pointing it out. Jon should not have been speaking publicly in his own Self Serving Interviews about his kids, they'd then not have had to go on TV to try to dispute his remarks then freeze up in front of the camera.

You are a pathetic father Jon, and you don't pay child support, DEADBEAT.

Having two goofs for parents is never a good situation for children.

That's just horrible. Those kids have had cameras in their face forever, so I wouldn't say this was a case of just being "camera shy". I don't think Kate physically abuses her kids, but it's clear there is something emotionally, mentally wrong with them.

I wonder what Kate and Jon are paid for their interviews. Seems like they have a lot to gain by keeping the feud going. Too bad for the kids though!

I have to admit I think John is spot on: what I saw in the interview was a publicity hungry mom. The two kids are dumped in the limelight, not allowed to speak or think for themselves, all due to an over powering mother.

I to believe Kate is a control freak witch, but Jon has a motive in this. It's money. He is pissed because he's broke and he hates the fact that his ex wife is doing better financially than he is. If he was really concerned he would've have approached this in private.
