Music Icon Kid Rock ripped Oprah Winfrey on Saturday after she endorsed Democrat John Fetterman in his tight race with Republican Mehmet Oz to represent Pennsylvania in the US Senate. Indeed, Rock went as far as calling Winfrey “a fraud.”
“Oprah helped Dr. Oz with his career. I assume because she vetted him and found him to be a wonderful person. Now she is against him. Oprah is a fraud. -Kid Rock.” Rock posted on his Twitter.

Rock has had a difficult relationship with Oprah in the past. Yet, Rock’s attack on Saturday was different — the stakes are far higher this time.
Republican Pennsylvania Senate Candidate Mehmet Oz had been a long-time friend of Oprah Winfrey — host of the popular “Oprah” talk show. He wasfetta frequent guest on her show, going by his “Dr. Oz” television name. As such, one might have guessed Oprah would be loyal to Oz — either by endorsing him or refusing to weigh in on the race altogether out of respect. Unfortunately for America, she endorsed Radical Democrat competitor John Fetterman in a stunning move that perplexes MAGA Patriots everywhere.
“I will tell y’all this: if I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman for many reasons,” Oprah said.

Oprah went on to endorse a multitude of Democrats — a radical move that will surely make our country far worse. From Stacey Abrams to Beto O’Rourke, Winfrey endorsed the progressive fringes of the Democrat Party. Abrams is an election denier after all, one who threatens the very fabric of our Democracy. By the same token, Beto O’Rourke is a gun grabber, pushing for radical anti-second amendment policies. Our Founding Fathers would reject both as the radicals they truly are. Indeed, they would reject the Democrat Party at large.

To his credit, Oz responded with class to Oprah’s backstabbing comments.
As Fox News Digital reports:
“‘Doctor Oz loves Oprah and respects the fact that they have different politics,’ Rachel Tripp, senior communications adviser for the Oz campaign, told Fox News Digital in an emailed statement. “‘He believes we need more balance and less extremism in Washington.'”
Oz is trying to bring Pennsylvania together, unlike the truly fringe figure that is John Fetterman. As such, rather than mounting an offensive, he read Oprah’s comments with grace and charity. That’s why he is a good fit for Pennsylvania.
