Dr. Oz wants voters to know that he’s just like them! Except he’s not actually just like them… as evidenced by his recent trip to the grocery store.

The TV doctor, who is currently running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania despite living in New Jersey, is being widely ridiculed on social media after posting a video of himself inside a grocery store buying ingredients for crudité and complaining about the prices, which he says President Biden is responsible for.

“I’m doing some grocery shopping,” Oz, wearing a navy cotton henley tucked into black dress pants, says. “I’m at Wegner’s”

(He means Wegman’s.)

“My wife wants some vegetables for crudité. Right? So, here’s a broccoli. That’s two bucks. Well, that’s a ton of broccoli there,” he continues. “There’s some asparagus. That’s $4. Carrots. That’s four more dollars.”

“That’s $10 of vegetables there! And then we need some guacamole. That’s $4 more! She loves salsa, yeah, salsa there. $6? Must be a shortage of salsa. Guys, that’s $20 for crudite! And this doesn’t include the tequila. I mean, that’s outrageous! We got Joe Biden to thank for this.”

Oz posted the video shortly after his campaign released his most recent financial disclosure statement that lists his wealth at more than $400 million, which would make him one of the wealthiest Senators if elected (God forbid).

This is just the latest embarrassing thing to happen to the cardiologist on the campaign trail. In January, he was widely ridiculed for posting a video of himself incorrectly performing a blood pressure check on a man at the Pennsylvania Farm Show. This was shortly after his wife, Lisa, was caught cursing out a reporter without realizing she was still on the phone.

Now, the responses to Dr. Oz’s grocery store meltdown…
