Kid Rock is unafraid to call it like it is. Whether that’s leading epic FJB chants at concerts or leading crowds at his Nashville bar in raucous choruses of “F*** Joy Behar,” the conservative music artist doesn’t hold back. Previously, he also led his bar in chants of “F*** Oprah Winfrey” and is now blasting her as a fraud over her endorsement of radical leftist John Fetterman.
In a tweet since gone viral with almost 20,000 retweets, Kid Rock pointed out the obvious:
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.

It doesn’t take much to see what’s going on. Oprah, who initially hired Oz in the early 2000s and helped him achieve his own spin-off in 2009 (subsequently put on hiatus in January of this year), would clearly have known the man she employed for two decades. Like the elitist leftist cabal and its love affair with Donald Trump all but one minute before he came down the escalator, so too did Oprah and the left love Oz until he ran as a Trump-endorsed Republican.
They never actually like these people; they just like that they can use them.
Oz, for his part, had his own controversies to deal with within the conservative movement. He was recently asked about one significant issue during a podcast appearance with Charlie Kirk, who had no issue tackling the subject head on. Kirk asked:
So Dr. Oz, I want to clear up one piece of confusion here, and this is something that I’ve talked to you about. And it’s just in the spirit of trying to get people clarity, which is your position on medical procedures for children. Using medical mutilation more specifically with trans kids, let’s put this issue to rest. What is your position on this topic?
In response, Oz didn’t exactly draw a firm line, hedging as politicians do, but he at least put some distance between himself and his past associations with the practice:
“I’m not in favor of minors having these procedures,” Oz said, before continuing to speak about the origins of this question, which stem from his time hosting the post-Oprah talkshow and featuring a wide range of guests. Just because he had guests with a particular background or persuasion, Oz said, it didn’t “mean that I agree with their position.”
“My job is to give voice, which is what I did,” Oz continued, “but I’ve been pretty clear on this issue and I’ve been strongly supportive of using science to drive our decisions, not the perversion of science, not the weaponization of science, but actually what does it say to us? What does it advise for us to do?”
“And in the case of transgender issues, it’s you know, it’s very much, I believe, supportive of not telling five-year-olds about complicated topics, because why teach algebra to a five-year-old, they’re not going to get it,” he concluded.
Oprah had previously come under fire for remaining quiet and elusive. After endorsing Stacey Abrams, it was clear she wanted radical leftists in power. There was speculation that her friendship with Oz trumped her political partisanship, as her camp had issued a single statement nearly a year ago and left it at that. In December of 2021, Oprah’s team said:
One of the great things about our democracy is that every citizen can decide to run for public office. Mehmet Oz has made that decision. And now it’s up to the residents of Pennsylvania to decide who will represent them.
