Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ reelection campaign is rolling out flip-flop merchandise named after Dr. Anthony Fauci.
The flip-flops, which are being sold online on the Republican governor’s “Official Ron DeSantis Store,” are emblazoned with “Freedom from Fauci” on the straps. The soles of the beach footwear urge the nation’s top infectious diseases expert to “pound sand.”
According to a promotional video released Friday by the DeSantis campaign, the flip-flops commemorate what it describes as Fauci’s flip-flopping opinions regarding masks, vaccines, lockdowns, school closures and social distancing.

Earlier this month, DeSantis’ campaign also started selling new “Escape to Florida/The Lockdown Libs tour” T-shirts after some top Democratic politicians from states with strict coronavirus restrictions were caught vacationing in the Sunshine State over the holiday.
