Now Oprah Winfrey is piling on John Edwards.
Winfrey, the talk show host and maker of best-sellers, had Andrew and Cheri Young on an episode of her show that aired Wednesday.
Winfrey grilled Young, a former aide to Edwards, about why he would have agreed to help Edwards cover up an extramarital affair in the middle of a presidential campaign. At Edwards' request, Young at first claimed he was the father of Rielle Hunter's child. Edwards eventually admitted paternity.
"That was former Sen. John Edwards. Lyin'," Winfrey said after showing a clip of Edwards denying that he was the father of the baby.
"If you're willing to pull off this kind of deception...what else would you be willing to deceive the American public about?" she asked about Edwards.
The Youngs are on a national media tour to help sell "The Politician," Young's tell-all account of the scandal. Inevitably, Winfrey asked about the purported sex tape that the Youngs say show Edwards and a woman they believe is Hunter.
Cheri Young said the tape shows Edwards "performing sex acts" while the woman holds the camera. "Thank you for that information," Winfrey said.
"You have got to be out of your mind to be running for the presidency of the United States and have somebody film you naked, you have got to be out of your mind to do that. What is that? What do you think that is?" Winfrey asked Young.
"I think it's narcissism gone wild," Young said.
