John Fetterman summarizes Mehmet Oz’s entire existence with a simple phrase

John Fetterman summarizes Mehmet Oz’s entire existence with a simple phrase

Pennsylvania Senate candidates John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz faced off in their one and only debate Tuesday night, and after a rough start where Fetterman’s lack of experience in being a fast-talking fraud doctor was in contrast, he began righting the ship. In a nice exchange where Mehmet Oz side-stepped a question about how most doctors consider Dr. Oz’s many remedies to be ethically dubious at best, Fetterman dropped a very nice reminder for the viewers at home.

”It’s the Oz rule. If he’s on tv, he’s lying.”

Fetterman began his night by laying it all out: That Mehmet Oz is a liar who is using this Senate race to serve Mehmet Oz’s personal interests, and that Fetterman wants to serve the people of Pennsylvania. That one of these two men has a career of serving their community and fighting for those without a voice, the other is a TV doctor who sells fake dreams.

When asked about abortion rights, Oz literally said that he wanted the choice concerning abortion and women’s health to be made between “women, doctors, and local political leaders.” Read that back to yourself. Then watch it. 

Other things Oz might want you to discuss with your “local political leaders” may include: 

  • Who you have a child with.
  • Whether or not you can use contraception
  • Mammograms!

One of the many things Fetterman had going for him is that he is not Mehmet Oz. Oz’s fast-talking, polished style that oozes the kind of hucksterism you might only find in the dictionary next to the word “inauthentic,” allowed Fetterman to simply point out that the fast-talking guy saying all of the crazy things was lying.

A reminder of which person had courage tonight and which guy was is a snake oil salesman.

John Fetterman: “I’ve had a stroke. He’s never let me forget that.” “I might miss some words during this debate, it might knock me down, but I’m going to keep getting back up.”

Here’s a good summation of the night.

Didn’t watch any of the debates tonight as my kid had a concert, but it sounds like the takeaway from the PA Sen debate will be: –Oz wants state legislators doing pelvic exams of pregnant women –Fetterman stumbled on fracking Anything else?

And another reminder.

Everybody tweeting about the Oz / Fetterman debate like we’re talking about two similarly legitimate candidates. Is everyone insane? Fetterman has been working (successfully) in public service in Pennsylvania for a decade. Oz is a quack TV doctor!

And something to keep in mind as you look about the inter webs for news.

Dr. Oz: -kills 300+ puppies -mocks stroke victims -makes millions selling bogus products -gives speech in front of Hitler’s car -admits to tasting his own urine Political media: “Fetterman needs to prove in tonight’s debate that he’s fit for office.”
