'The View' hosts accuse Dr. Oz of violating medical ethics for debating Fetterman: 'What kind of a doctor is behind that?'

"The View" co-host Joy Behar suggested Wednesday that Dr. Mehmet Oz violated a medical pledge to "do no harm" when he chose to debate Democrat John Fetterman.

Wait, are you serious?

Reacting to Tuesday's debate between the Pennsylvania senatorial candidates, Behar accused Dr. Oz of harming Fetterman, who suffered a stroke in May.

"The Republican Party is running a bunch of ads about showing Fetterman stumbling on things because of the stroke," Behar said. "What kind of a doctor is behind that? Aren’t you supposed to do no harm?"

Behar explained that she has a personal relationship with Dr. Oz and that from her perspective, "he's like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."

While it is often believed that the phrase "first, do no harm" is part of the ancient Hippocratic Oath, the phrase is believed to have originated in the 19th century. Though physicians do recite an oath when graduating from school, it is not the Hippocratic Oath.

Still, the phrase "first, do no harm" is a key principal in bioethics that medical professionals tend to abide by.

After Behar's attack, Sunny Hostin immediately condemned Dr. Oz and accused him of being a "bully."

"It’s really strange. It was really strange to me that he chose to bully a stroke victim," Hostin said of Dr. Oz. "Yeah, right. Like he obviously was bullying him."

Hostin, however, did not provide any evidence to back her claims.

What's the irony?

Just one day before accusing Dr. Oz of harming Fetterman and bullying him, the same commentators mocked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for appearing to have a "stroke" while debating Democrat Charlie Crist.

"You know this guy DeSantis has the charisma of this cup. I think when Crist says, 'Are you going run in 2024,' he looks like he’s having a stroke — he can’t even answer that simple question," Behar said. "This is where I say Trump has a better shot, certainly with the Republican Party and the Republican base, than he does."

Moreover, "The View" also attacked Georgia Republican Herschel Walker for possibly having had a stroke as well — and then laughed at the possibility that he could have brain damage.

"[W]hat makes the Republicans think that Herschel Walker is coherent and he hasn’t had a stroke?" Behar said on Oct. 13.
