Mehmet Oz is so far removed from the Pennsylvania working class, he recently posted a video in which he unwittingly demonstrated that he doesn’t know how to shop for groceries, or what groceries are called, or what the local grocery store is called. Even as Oz reels from that embarrassment, and his poll numbers continue to get uglier, he’s making things even worse for himself.
Oz who has gotten rich over the years by pushing one phony miracle cure after another, was asked how many homes he truly owns. His answer was two. But the media dug in, and it turns out the real answer is ten. Democratic candidate John Fetterman tweeted this in response to the news: “I’ve never spoken to a PA resident who doesn’t know how many houses they have… let alone be off by 8. I can’t tell if he’s trying + failing to sound like a regular person (with ONLY TWO mansions) or if he genuinely has no idea.”
This prompted Oz to tweet this absurdly childish tantrum: “I purchased my houses with MY money. You lived off your parents until you were almost 50. Regular people don’t mooch off their parents when they’re 50. Get off the couch John!”
In reality, Fetterman has been working in public service since 2006, and before that he was working with groups like AmeriCorps. The notion of Fetterman being a lazy moocher is beyond absurd. In contrast, we’ve all watched Oz build his fame and fortune by pushing miracle cures on vulnerable people, in a manner that makes him a total moocher. If you want to defeat Oz, you can donate or volunteer for Fetterman here.
