I’m surprised that anyone is surprised that Oprah endorsed Democratic John Fetterman at the last minute to be the Pennsylvania’s next senator. She does what is best for the Democrat party and it’s not the first time.
She’s a democrat. She tells people to stand up on their own two feet and take care of themselves and their families and tells us that we should choose their own path in life, but she’s a liberal. She makes decisions emotionally like all liberals do.
And I’m sure that endorsing Fetterman wasn’t her idea. Obama probably gave her a phone call or two. But she complied.
She said in the past, obviously disingenuously, “it’s up to the residents of Pennsylvania to decide who will represent them.”
Guess it’s not up to them anymore with Dr. Oz surging in the polls.
Back when Obama was running to be president, she endorsed him, of course, which I had assumed was because of his race.
For years, she was all about women – that was how she made her millions. Protecting women, supporting women, inspiring women… it was her brand.
But she decided to sell out half of the women in America by endorsing a candidate for president. Whether it was because Obama’s race and the possibility of electing the first half-black president or if it was because he was a Democrat, she was okay losing the support of millions of women by being political.
Articles were written that Oprah probably won Obama millions of votes. Vanity Fair had said about her power, “Oprah Winfrey arguably has more influence on the culture than any university president, politician, or religious leader, except perhaps the Pope.”
I guess politics is her brand now. To be a Democrat stooge. Besides selling out the electorate by endorsing a man who shouldn’t even be running for Senate (not to mention her being okay with Fetterman chasing down a black jogger with a gun) she’s also throwing her friend, Dr. Oz, under the bus.
She plucked Doctor Oz out of relative obscurity in 2003 and made him a household name after he made more than 60 appearances on her show. He was good enough to make millions for her but is not good enough for Pennsylvania to elect as their senator.

Oprah’s last minute endorsement of Fetterman came during a virtual town hall where she said, “I’ll tell you all this, if I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman for many reasons.”
She doesn’t, of course, list any of those reasons except to say that there are “candidates” who are working to represent values like inclusion, compassion and community. She goes on to ask voters to “choose wisely for the democracy of our country.”
Earlier in life, Oprah said that Oz was the one who was compassionate. She talked about meeting Dr. Oz and said, “I immediately recognized what she’d (Gayle) sensed: a cardiac surgeon who cared as much about transforming people’s lives as he did about fixing their hearts” and she said that over the years he gave “helpful advice” and “saved countless lives.”
Oprah Winfrey: a HUGE disappointment yet again. But not a surprising one.
