WATCH: John Oliver Tears Into Dr. Oz’s “Sh*t Show” of a Campaign

Thanks to a push from Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Mehmet Oz became a very successful television personality. But even before he became political, the TV doctor was vilified by his peers.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Oz began parroting right-wing talking points. And it seems that was all a set-up for him to run for the Senate in Pennsylvania (a state he might not live in). During his weekend show, John Oliver tore into Oz, saying that the doctor has always been a joke.

Oliver played a clip where Oz claimed he was popular because he had been on TV for 18 years:

“Wow. I hadn’t heard that voice in a while and, to be honest, I really haven’t missed it,” said the HBO host. “The first growl in that clip was like hearing the sound of a cranking lawn mower you know is about to sexually harass you. Now, as for his claim there that being on TV for a long time is like a poll showing that people like you, that is just not true,” he said. “Believe me. I’ve been on TV in this country for 16 years now and I still get YouTube comments like, ‘I hope he stops soon,’ ‘why is less funny Mr. Bean so mad?'”

The comedian continued, “I talked a lot of sh*t about The Dr. Oz Show and I did because it was unremittingly terrible. But what is now clear is that I didn’t appreciate just how hard his staff had to work every day to make sure it wasn’t even worse.”
