Oprah Catching Hell Over Dr. Oz/Dr. Phil’s Quacky Coronavirus Quarantine Comments

*Hmm, ya think maybe Oprah Winfrey might be having second thoughts about being the person responsible for basically bringing Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz to the world?

Maybe so, ’cause in light of the two doctors’ recent comments about the coronavirus, Winfrey is catching hell from folks who clearly are hating on her for what’s coming out of the doctors’ mouths.

As we chronicled here and here, both doctors did interviews on Fox News earlier this week in which they said the US should basically reopen now, even as the country is still in the claws of the coronavirus/COVID-19.

On Thursday, Dr. Phil McGraw told Laura Ingraham that the lockdown could cause “more deaths across time than the actual virus will itself.”

On Wednesday, Dr. Oz told Sean Hannity that an estimated low mortality rate among students may be worth considering to reopen schools.

“Schools are a very appetizing opportunity. I just saw a nice piece in The Lancet arguing the opening of schools may only cost us 2 to 3%, in terms of total mortality,” Oz said.

“Any, you know, any life is a life lost, but … to get every child back into a school where they’re safely being educated, being fed and making the most out of their lives with a theoretical risk on the backside, that might be a tradeoff some folks would consider.”

yes, these idiots, er, “doctors” actually said those horrible things and now folks are coming for Winfrey because she’s the one who launched their TV careers on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” back in the day when it was a daily ratings monster and must-see TV:

Of course, some did speak up for Lady O. After all, the stupidity eminated from Dr. Phil’s and Dr. Oz’s mouths, not hers.
