Dr. Mehmet Oz raised eyebrows over the weekend after a photo emerged of the Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate delivering a speech in front of a car that once belonged to Adolf Hitler.

The unfortunate moment happened Thursday during a fundraiser at the Lyon Air Museum in southern California. The event was organized by “Take Back the Senate,” a joint National Republican Senatorial Committee, Deadline reported.

The museum is home to a large collection of World War II era memorabilia.

“This particular G4, 440875, was originally delivered to Adolph Hitler in late 1939 and was used by the Fuhrer in Ober Salzberg, Berlin and Poland until seized by the French Army at Berchtesgaden,” the museum boasts on its website.

Tickets for the fundraiser started at $1,500 a head, rising to $50,000 for a package of six.

The event was organized in-part by multimillionaire technologist Palmer Luckey, a brother-in-law of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) and creator of Oculus VR, a virtual reality company.

Reps for Oz did not respond to request for comment from The Post.

Oz is currently locked in a tight race for senate against the state’s Lt. Governor John Fetterman — who wasted no time pouncing on the moment.

“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but if you’re asking donors for money in front of Hitler’s literal car, then you shouldn’t be running for U.S. Senate,” Fetterman said in a tweet Friday evening.
