NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Dr. Anthony Fauci may not work for Donald Trump anymore, but that apparently has done little to stymie the former president's disdain for the country's leading infectious disease expert.
Trump's latest salvo at President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser? In exchange for a minimum $25 donation to his political action committee, Save America, contributors will receive a pair of stickers featuring a doctored image of a grim-looking Fauci with green skin, with "How Fauci Stole Christmas" written next to the unflattering photo.
The sticker is an obvious nod to the Dr. Seuss classic children's tale "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," about a reclusive green Grinch determined to ruin Christmas.
A letter from the PAC announcing the sticker, reads, "Friend, FAUCI IS A GRINCH. He is trying to CANCEL Christmas. He is trying to CONTROL your life, Friend."
The letter continues, "We’re fighting back. We just launched our BRAND NEW, never-before-seen HOW FAUCI STOLE CHRISTMAS Stickers and we want YOU to have a set. You need a set of these limited-edition stickers so you can let everyone know you will NOT be controlled and you will NOT let FAUCI STEAL CHRISTMAS."
This isn't the first time that Fauci's likeness and stance on coronavirus and vaccine mandates has been used to sell merchandise to benefit a Republican political campaign. In August, the website for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' campaign raised funds by selling T-shirts and drink coolers featuring the phrase “Don’t Fauci My Florida.”
