Watch Sen. Claire McCaskill mock Trump’s Dr. Oz health stunt: ‘Lord, talk about two snake oil salesmen’
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) appeared on Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe and expressed her skepticism about the direction in which Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign is headed after his stunt appearance on Dr. Mehmet Oz’s show Wednesday.
“Well, isn’t that a pair?” McCaskill said to Mika Brzezinski. “Oh, my lord. Talk about two snake oil salesmen.”
“I mean one of them says, ‘Take a pill and you’ll be thin,'” she said, referring to Oz’s legal troubles from shilling phony diet aids. “From your lips to God’s ears, wouldn’t we all love that? Not true. Not medically true. Not scientifically true. And Dr. Oz knows it, and he does it all the time.”
Trump, for his part, McCaskill said, is “promising things that are totally not true” and “lying almost every time he opens his mouth.”
“So I think it’s really a marriage made in heaven,” she quipped.
