Skip to comments.Dr. Oz exposed for long history of making money from communist China

Well-known Hollywood Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is running for a Pennsylvania Senate seat, has come under fire in a number of Republican and conservative circles for his seemingly long and documented history with communist China, even though he’s running a “tough-on-China” campaign.
According to Breitbart, Dr. Oz has ironically launched attacks on his GOP challenger, David McCormick, for his alleged China ties, while at the same time the doctor’s opponents dig up a growing history he allegedly has with China.
As with any backstory of a potential political scandal, it’s all about the money.
Breibart noted: “The celebrity doctor’s most recent connection to China was a partnership with ‘Utah-based Malouf Companies that used his name and identity on numerous sleep products that were made in China,’ which netted Oz between $1 million and $5 million last year, according to a report by Politico Playbook.”
Politico did a deep dive into the “Dr. Oz Good Life” situation, showing that the celebrity doctor has done quite well for himself by allowing his name and likeness to be used to market various sleep products in China.
“A person close to the Oz campaign said that only small portions of the sleep products that couldn’t be manufactured in the U.S. or elsewhere were made in China,” Politico noted.
Brittany Yanick, a spokesperson for Dr. Oz, deflected a reporter’s question about the doctor’s ties to China and Chinese-made products, instead slamming his opponent, Mr. McCormick.
“David McCormick is Beijing’s favorite candidate, having raised billions in China to support the CCP and celebrated shipping PA jobs overseas,” Yanick said.

When you think about how much chinese crap we have bought in the last several decades, it would be hard to find anyone without deep Chinese involvement (Walmart would be a good example).
Ambassador Sands is a far better choice.
Making stuff in China and selling it in the USA is a common practice.
President Trump had almost no success in reversing this practice.
Joe won the state 52%-48%. The Dems do the math on certain BIG counties and could care less about the rest of the state. Important to add or hold Republican members of the house or senate.
Oz has certainly gotten the attention of the MSM, they must be pretty scared he might win.
Trump endorsed Turk that practices Sufism.
And he’s not really even a Pennsylvanian...
Yep, as transportation abilities improved so did the transfer of
goods/services around the world. Who can produce a product
of decent quality at lowest cost will get most of the business.
“Making stuff in China and selling it in the USA is a common practice. President Trump had almost no success in reversing this practice.”
President Trump also engaged in this practice. You can tell folk who have no experience outside of politics. If you are in business it is almost impossible to operate without Chinese suppliers today.
Trump’s nearly unfailing skill in choosing poorly for his staff/advisers and endorsing questionable candidates has been his weak point. Statist camels of long standing were invited into the tent when dealing with how to drain The Swamp, thus dooming the effort. The Oz endorsement has been ascribed to either Hannity or Melania, depending on who you believe. Either way, a further example of friends (i.e. Hannity) pursuing their own agenda or, in the case of Melania, thinking with the little head.
I have been wary of Oz because of the these charges but I have seen nothing backing them up that is the least concerning to this point.
Attacks on Oz seem to be part of a campaign to keep Trump partisans out of the legislature. I am still not keen on Oz because he seems too "flashy" for my taste but I will trust Trump's judgment. When he chose cabinet and advisors he had little choice but the Swamp and tried to get the least harmful of them but was stabbed in the back multiply by his choices. Choosing people out of the population in general to support he moves outside of the swamp and some of his choices will seem odd because they do not have the veneer of polished politicians. I will trust Trump's judgment with Dr. Oz. I did not like Donald Trump himself at all through the 2016 primaries until he took down my then favorite , Senator Cruz, then quite suddenly I perceived what was actually happening and changed allegiance. Supporting Oz is supporting Trump.
I don’t like Oz but who doesn’t make money off communist China at this point ?
He should be no problem then, the Biden’s, NBA, and a host of others are also.
He’s a friend of Oprah and a Muslim.
You don’t live in PA, just like Oz.
Mind your own state’s business.
After WW 2 it was Jap crap that flooded our markets. That is what my dad called it, after spending 5 freaking years fighting under Gen. Mac. Last battle was Corregidor. Then time in Japan post war. That was the polite name, ‘yellow Bast***’s was his prefered after viewing the atrocities first hand.
It keeps getting worse & worse with this guy.
But Trump’s endorsement was sure a surprise.
If this is indicative of the advisors he now has on staff, well...we got 2 years to reevaluate and we better start the day following the midterms.
Mitch and the Establishment strike again.
Well, the Chamber of Commerce Republicans sure love their illegal Mexicans.
Pay them a wage far below what they would have to pay an actual American. No benefits either.
