Dr. Oz Gets One Right

Not sure if this belongs in U.S. Politics, Pseudoscience or Medicine Forum but Dr. Oz attempted to medsplain to the empty suits and dresses at Fox attempting to pile on Bernie Sanders and they shut that thang right down.

Minor nitpick. The suits and dresses at Fox are not empty. They are full of ****.

Then he was brutally SILENCED
Brutally? Was he beaten soundly about the head and shoulders or something?

Quote:
“Half of the doctors in America want Medicare for All, that’s how much of a crisis we have,” Oz said before getting cut off by Brian Kilmeade.

“Doctor...that’s a whole different conversation,” Kilmeade interrupted, pivoting the conversation back to Sanders’ recovery.
Man. Brutal subject-changing there.

When you're quoting dr. Oz to try and support something you believe in you really are scraping the bottom of the barrel

Category error.

Grunion is referring to a particular incident involving Dr Oz. There's no way to convey this incident without mentioning Dr Oz. And furthermore, grunion infers that they have a low opinion of Oz, which renders your comment doubly useless.
