Biden demands Dr. Oz, Herschel Walker step down amid Senate runs

President Biden requested that two members of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition, who were appointed by former President Trump, either step down or face termination amid their U.S. Senate runs in Georgia and Pennsylvania.

“President Trump appointed me to two terms on the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition,” tweeted Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is running for Senate in Pennsylvania. “The White House just emailed me demanding my resignation by the end of the day.”

“Clearly, Joe Biden can’t be around anyone who doesn’t completely fall in line with his fear-mongering authoritarian one-size-fits-all COVID handling,” Oz continued. “I am proud of my service and will not resign.”

“It’s sad that he would politicize such an important issue like health,” Oz said. “The doctor he should ask to resign is Dr. Fauci, for a multitude of obvious reasons.”

A similar notification was issued to Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker, who is running for the Senate in Georgia.

Trump appointed Oz and Walker in 2018 serve on the council, and he appointed them again in 2020 shortly before he left office.
