In the latest controversy surrounding Trump endorsed GOP senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, video footage that has since resurfaced shows Oz's "love" and "adoration" for infamous hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett.

The following clip, recently unearthed by advisor and strategist Matt Wolking, comes from a 2019 episode of the Dr. Oz show where Oz expressed his "love" for Jussie Smollett a month after Smollett faked a racist hate crime against himself in Chicago to smear former President Trump and his supporters.

Dr. Oz referred to Smollett as his "good friend" and said he "adores" him.

The jury in the trial of Jussie Smollett found the former Empire star guilty on five of six counts of felony disorderly conduct last December.

Smollett claimed that he had been attacked in the street by the MAGA hat-wearing white men that poured bleach on him, used a rope fashioned into a noose, and hurled racist and homophobic insults at him.

The 39-year-old star hired the Osundairo brothers to stage the attack and allegedly paid the two brothers $3,500 to attack him in the street.

Smollett was sentenced to 150 days in prison and $140,000 in fines was imposed for restitution; however, he was released on bond after serving only a few days in prison. Despite being found guilty of the hate crime hoax, Smollett still denies the allegations and recently released a new song claiming his innocence.

Another controversial clip exposing Oz's past history resurfaced earlier this week, which showed Dr. Oz promoted transgender children and surgery in a 2010 episode of the Dr. Oz show.

The opening portion of the talk show program comes off as if Dr. Oz intended to present both sides of the issue. But in the fuller episode clip posted to YouTube earlier this year, it becomes apparent that wasn’t the case.

"It’s an area of intense debate. Today you’ll meet families coping with this astonishing reality. What does it mean to be a boy? What does it mean to be a girl? Those two simple questions are infinitely complex and gut-wrenching for parents of children who are born transgender," Dr. Oz says.

First up is Josie, an 8-year-old "transgender child" who is biologically male, but is allowed by her parents to live as a girl.

"8-year-old Josie was born Joseph. Physically she’s a boy. But from the time she could talk, Josie knew she was a girl. Her sex on the outside, didn’t match how she felt on the inside, and that’s how every transgender child feels. Children like Josie may start showing signs of transgender as early as two or three. This extraordinary condition is not as rare as you might think. It’s estimated that three million Americans believe they were born the wrong sex."

Backing up this narrative is Oz’s resident pediatrician Dr. Robert Garofalo.

"She was fighting me and crying and having fits, and demanding that she wear the pink leggings and the denim little skirts that she wanted to wear. When we'd go to the store she'd go to that, gravitate towards the girl's section, not the little boy's section that I wanted to put on her," Vanessa says of Josie.

Vanessa believes allowing Josie to live as a girl cured other ailments. "She took seventeen doses of medication a day, fourteen different medications, to try and get her to fit into this mold for depression, anxiety, ADHD, she was… you know, Tourette's went in there at the end."

Dr. Garofalo admits that doctors don't fully understand the long-term consequences of this lifestyle change.

Dr. Oz introduces 15-year-old female-to-male Isaac as someone who wanted to "take control" of their body when gender swapping. We learn that as a kid, Isaac wanted a penis, but soon grew breasts and began menstruating. Isaac's parents approved a double mastectomy and expressed their joy at the change in Isaac's mood on the Dr. Oz show.

Dr. Garofalo provides a pro-transgender analysis. Dr. Oz asks Isaac what would've happened if there were laws in place to prevent gender surgeries until Isaac was 18. He responds it'd have likely been four more years of depression, until the teen was a legal adult who could sign off on these sorts of decisions, personally.

When it comes to the Pennsylvania Senate primary, locals are reacting with confusion about former President Trump’s recent endorsement of Dr. Mehmet Oz.

A Washington Examiner article outlining the backlash has officials saying Trump is "out-of-sync" with the Republican base on this one.
