Geographically-Challenged Oz Makes A Fool Of Himself And Proves He Truly Is A Carpetbagger

Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate Mehmet Oz may be a doctor, but he proved his complete ignorance of the state he asking to elect him during an interview he gave to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night.

Oz, who has lived in New Jersey for years, is running against Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D) for the Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Pat Toomey (R), told Hannity:

“Pennsylvania is too important. This is important, we do not have a Republican senator north of North Carolina on the Atlantic coast until you get to Maine if I don’t hold this seat. And there has been a Republican senator in Pennsylvania most of my life. I’m gonna keep one here as well.”

As Mediaite notes, Oz may own homes in multiple states, but he clearly knows little or nothing about where exactly those houses are located:

The multimillionaire does own homes in Florida, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Two of his Florida estates are actually on the beach.

But his Pennsylvania properties do not back up to Pennsylvania’s coastline because Pennsylvania has no coastline. That did not stop Oz from pitching a very special message to voters Monday night. In essence, Oz asked them to make him the state’s next senator so the east coast can keep its Republican representation.

There is absolutely no point where the Keystone State touches the Atlantic Ocean. Never has been and never will be, which is something Oz might know if he wasn’t just moonlighting as a Pennsylvania resident in an attempt to steal a Senate seat.

Twitter users were also eager to take Oz to school on his faux pas.
