Oz Doesn’t get criticized for being a conservative... He is rightly criticized by the medical world for being a snake oil salesman, willing to back any trumped up salve, cream, or oil if the price is right

As a white male, born from white parents who started their own businesses to try to be successful, and I as a formed federal agent who defended this country from foreign threats, I take great unbridge with this episode and the person interviewed. They may have their experiences, but from a white male perspective, it's totally not correct. No older white males are making my life better.

The guy interviewed in this episode says that when Trump came to power we were the only superpower and fails to recognize anything before Trump. To call this man biased and ignorant would be to give him a compliment. Don't bother listening to this episode, it's nothing but ignorance.
