In a virtual town hall on Thursday night, Oprah Winfrey supported Democrat John Fetterman for Pennsylvania’s open Senate seat, effectively snubbing its Republican opponent, dr Mehmed Ozwhose TV career she helped launch.
That’s a big deal because Winfrey didn’t interfere during the Republican primary — despite Oz’s claims he asked her to stay out of it – and felt a week before the general election where he felt the need to speak out opinion poll shows that the race is extremely close.
That Washington Post explained the deep Oprah Oz connection:
Oz, a doctor, hosted a show on the Discovery Channel in the early 2000s called “Second Opinion with Dr. oz”. Winfrey appeared on this show as a guest. Oz was later featured on Winfrey’s popular talk show and rose to national fame thereafter more than 60 apparitions. In 2009 he moderated the “The Dr. oz show”. co-produced by Winfrey’s company Harpo Productions.
The stakes are high in this race as the winner could determine whether Democrats retain control of the Senate – and whether Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) gets the gavel again. In a word, people are stressed. Online reactions to Winfrey’s support have ranged from relief to frustration that it was so close to Election Day to her wish also apologize to the start Oz to glory. This reply often comes from White peopleand be not new.
Yes, Oprah could have intervened earlier, like before early voting began — but she’s not responsible for Dr. Oz to run for Senate as a Trumpy Republican. The people you’re really mad at — the people who are the reason the race is so close — are white voters who like Republican politics so much that they’re willing to vote for a quack on TV who thinks: “local political leaders” should be included in women’s abortion decisions, whose research killed 329 dogsand who gave a speech in front of Hitler’s car; or independents who believe that both parties are equally bad when one party is clear threaten human health and life.
Skip Oprah the conversation please
