After his wife sent him to Wegman’s to pick up ingredients for crudité last week, U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Oz posted a video attacking Vice President Kamala Harris for the rising cost of food in Pennsylvania.
The video takes Harris’ viral “We did it, Joe!” clip and quotes the VP completely out of context by implying she’s talking about jacking up the price of groceries and not winning the 2020 election.
“Hey @VP, while you’re in Pennsylvania, make sure you swing by a grocery store to see how much your Administration has raised food prices. You did this,” Oz, who lives in New Jersey but is running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, tweeted.

What Oz doesn’t mention in his attack ad against Harris is how his most recent financial disclosure statement lists his wealth at more than $400 million, which would make him one of the wealthiest senators if he is elected.
He also doesn’t offer any ideas for how he might fix the problem, which he clearly doesn’t understand to begin with. The vice president has absolutely no control over what grocery stores charge for items. In Oz’s defense, however, he’s a TV doctor, not an economist.
Here’s how people are responding to his attack ad against Harris…
Dr Oz visited a grocery store for the first time in his life and can’t stop going on and on about it.

No she didn’t. World wide Covid pandemic disrupting supply lines did this.

Are you jealous because she’s actually been to Pennsylvania?
