Mehmet Oz, Inept Grocery-Shopping Man of the People: Let Them Eat Crudités

Given his kamikaze campaign ads, maybe rich carpetbagger, quack huckster of magic-cure pills and "ridiculous performance artist" Mehmet Oz doesn't want to be a senator after all. First came a bonkers cartoon ripping "radical" John Fetterman for backing free health care, legal weed and survival of the planet and c'mon who'd want that? Now, in a wildly tone-deaf ad boasting the "worst Everyman shtick ever," a clueless Oz gripes about inflation while fake-shopping at a store he misnames for asparagus and salsa to make crudités. Master troll Fetterman: "In PA we call this...a veggie tray."
