As he has said in various stump speeches, Oz repeated the mantra that “we cannot leave 2020 behind” while remaining extremely vague about what “issues” may or may not have occurred to impact the results.
“I’m trying to understand what ‘we cannot move on’ means,” Brody said, echoing one of Oz’s other frequent phrases.
“‘Not move on’ means there are so many different things that happened,” Oz replied. But while he claimed that “as a physician” he likes to “get into the details,” he would only cite anecdotal allegations about absentee ballots that supposedly went uncounted.
Brody clearly was not satisfied with that answer, noting that he didn’t hear his guest use Trump’s preferred words—“rigged” and “stolen”—in regards to the election. “So you’re cautious on those words, or you want to be careful?” he asked.
“I want to be careful,” Oz replied. “Republicans are about fixing things. I know for sure we’ve got to deal with 2020, but this is about knowing what exactly the diagnosis is so we can give it the right treatment.”
