The medical profession needs to do a better job of policing their own.

Various news sources are quoting The Hatch Act saying he should have resigned once he decided to run for office.

Same thing goes for Herschel (I have no idea how evolution works) Walker who’s also running for office.

I remember seeing his show on briefly, about 10-15 years ago, and he was advocating a 1500 calorie/day diet. While fasting may have its place in nutrition, half hour/hour show geared towards selling supplements is not it. He’s obviously been a grossly irresponsible quack since the get-go.

I’m honestly surprised he was still there.

Yes. He was a genuinely distinguished physician before he became a knight in her TV kingdom of woo. Oz is apparently one of those guys who’s been driven all his life to please his completely unpleasable father, which never ends well. Now he’s a snake-oil promoter running for political office under the banner of a science-denying death cult party.

My only question is, what took them so long?

Nothing good can come from having a celebrity “doctor” on a Sports, Fitness and Nutrition committee.

Yup, unfortunately many of the biggest quacks have been made by Oprah. Oprah is amazing and has done many amazing things for this world, but on this one vector of medical quackery, she has done tremendous damage. People with huge platforms need to be very responsible about who they lend them to.

Also, fuck you, Oz. Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Way to keep it classy. The sad part for me is that my mom (70+ Florida woman who is generally informed and progressive) still watches and listens to what he says.

They were kindly giving him the opportunity to resign once he had declared that he was running for office, as required by the Hatch Act.

Instead, he chose to go full ahole qnut.

And that will play well with the Qnut crowd:

“The swamp couldn’t handle me… They couldn’t handle the Truth! I wouldn’t quit, so they fired me!!!”

Unfortunately this makes him more of a hero in the eyes of the assholes he’s pandering to.

No, not taken there. In the other end.

Yes, but why did they keep him around until he decided to run for office? The guy has been there since the start of the Biden admin. I guess they just had more important things to do but still, the guy has been anti-Biden from the get go.

There’s so much to unfuck!

(And when he’s not doing that, he’s rendering all the other stuff he’s doing now unrefuckable.)
