Mehmet Oz tried to stage a shot of a regular guy near some heavy equipment, but he left his $70,000 car in the background.

There are a few things wrong with this image besides the luxury vehicle in the background.
Oz is dressed in a shirt, jacket, pants, and shoes. If the campaign is trying to make him look like an ordinary person, then he should dress like an ordinary person or at least lose some of his formal attire. Like some who have lived in rural Pennsylvania for decades, the number of times I’ve seen someone dressed like Oz along the road is precisely zero.
The Republican candidate is standing on the PA road in the middle of summer, and it’s spotlessly clean. There isn’t a speck of dust or dirt on him.
It looks like he got out of a $70,000 SUV and decided to take a picture because it would make him look like a regular guy and endear him to voters across the state.
Oz is so clearly bad for being a candidate. He’s not fooling anyone in the PA, and ill-conceived stunts only serve to alienate other voters who already dislike and distrust him.
