Dr. Oz Removes ‘Trump’ Branding from Homepage after Primary Win

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) After leaning into former President Donald Trump during a heated primary contest, Pennsylvania senatorial candidate Mehmet Oz’s website has now dropped almost all references to Trump in his campaign, the Gateway Pundit and other media outlets reported.

Dr. Oz—the television personality known for his appearances on Oprah Winfrey’s daytime talk show—narrowly won his primary race, besting billionaire investor David McCormick by a mere .07%.

After a protracted legal battle over whether improperly marked ballots should be included in the tally, Oz ultimately won by 951 votes.

Since then, however, Oz has distanced himself from his primary campaign message, along with snubbing Trump.

The pro-vaccine, pro-abortion centrist “has removed any mention of former president Donald Trump from his Twitter bio, background image, campaign website splash page, and even recent advertisements,” Yahoo News reported.

Prior to the announcement of his primary victory, Oz had embraced Trump and was an early endorser of the former president in 2016, according to 100 Percent Fed Up.

Trump returned the favor, giving Oz a glowing endorsement, despite the move having drawn the ire of MAGA land.

It paid dividends for Oz, whose “tight victory is largely credited to President Trump’s endorsement of him. Trump actively involved himself in the campaign and frequently spoke on Oz’s behalf,” reported 100 Percent Fed Up.

Oz took full advantage of Trump’s stamp of approval, with his campaign’s Twitter account mentioning Trump and the endorsement more than 70 times in two months.

That number has apparently dropped to rock bottom, sending what many consider a snub to Trump and delivering another flip-flop from Oz.

Oz has a history of flip-flopping–especially on abortion— and has called himself a “moderate Republican.”

If distancing himself from Trump is an early indicator, it would appear Oz aims to move even more left-leaning “moderate,” as he campaigns against Democrat John Fetterman, the incumbent lieutenant governor who has spent years lying about his health and recently suffered a stroke.

Fettermen is currently leading Oz in the polls by a significant margin even though his medical issues have kept him off the campaign trail.
