“I have known Dr. Oz for many years, as have many others, even if only through his very successful television show. He has lived with us through the screen and has always been popular, respected and smart.”
Birds of a feather flock together, for example you will often see charlatan televangelists vouch for each other. Former reality show host Trump’s endorsement of former TV huckster Dr. Mehmet Oz didn’t raise any eyebrows, he has a history of endorsing celebrities and athletes.
Before Trump became president of the United States, he spent decades hawking fake products: diplomas to his fake university, overpriced apartments in his Trump-branded properties, ghostwritten books, etc.
Mehmet Oz spent years on television making questionable claims while promoting his own brand. Dr. Oz has long pushed faux alternative therapies, detoxes and cleanses and fad diets. He even touted hydroxychloroquine as a cure for COVID-19.
Dr. Oz medical license should be revoked, he’s a quack who doesn’t deserve to be a doctor, a senator for the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, or a dog catcher for that matter.
Notice Trump, in his endorsement, didn’t claim that Dr. Oz was knowledgeable, politically astute or wise, instead he praised his popularity as a TV star.
Trump claimed Oz is popular, respected and smart. Oz has world class name recognition, but he’s neither respected or particularly bright. Oz would be as good as a senator for Pennsylvania as the amoral monster Trump was president of the United States.
