Trump using Dr. Oz has a health advisor?

https://www.acsh.org/news/2018/05/04...-live-tv-12925

This just caught my eye, though I see that the article is a year old.

Does anyone have any more recent information? I would really like to know if Oz gives Trump National health advise, personal advise, or is symbolic. It is nasty symbolism. Con, liar, mentally ill. An anti-vaxxer, holistic nut-cake is not representing me in any way.

(I wasn't sure which forum to put this.)

I hope Trump takes Dr. Oz's medical advice. It would decrease the chance that he'll live to complete his term.

The article is a bit misleading. The President's Council on Whatever It Is is a mostly honorary group. In August of 2018, the Dept of Health and Human Services announced the "First" Annual Meeting. It was held in one of the office buildings on the hill and lasted three whole hours. There's no record of who even attended. The co-chairs are like a sop to minority representation: One Latino, Mariano Rivera (Panamanian-American), One Wimminz (Misty May), One Black (Herschel Walker).

The other members of the Council are appointed from around the country. Political coin. It's a do-nothing group. Claiming, as the article does, that Mehmet Oz will be working at the White House is a considerable stretch. (This is from a guy who hates both Oz and Trump.)

Well his actual medical advice like from his surgery practice or the crap the character he plays on TV says?

I mean just like Ken Jeong you shouldn't get confused by the actor playing the character being a doctor with the character presenting real medical advice. His testimony before congress showed the difference.
