Bernie Sanders doesn't rule out 3rd presidential bid
Dr Oz decided to share a photoshopped meme of Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and John Fetterman, the Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania and Democratic US Senate candidate - and people were quick to roast him.
With the general election campaign reaching its second full month, Oz, the Republican nominee, and other party members, have tried to connect Fetterman to Sanders in fund-raising emails, press releases, and digital ads, as reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer.
"John Fetterman will befriend Bernie Sanders in the Senate," Oz tweeted last week. "He will follow Bernie's lead and be his sidekick. PA and America cannot afford to have another 'Bernie' in the Senate," it continued.
\u201cFRIDAY FACT: John Fetterman will befriend Bernie Sanders in the Senate. He will follow Bernie's lead and be his sidekick. PA and America cannot afford to have another \u201cBernie\u201d in the Senate.\u201d
The Philadephia Inquirer also noted that Fetterman and Sanders have exchanged endorsements and shared rally stages, as well as similar policy views.
They also ran similar grassroots progressive campaigns. This makes it easy for Oz to draw comparisons between the two.
The outlet shared its report on Twitter which caught the attention of Oz, prompting him to seemingly create the photoshopped Sanders and Fetterman's faces onto Will Farrell and John C. Reilly's Step Brothers characters.
