Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis's campaign store is selling flip-flops that are likely to appeal to critics of prominent public health figure Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The straps say "Freedom Over Fauci," and the words on the soles of the two sandals combine to convey the message that reads, "Fauci Can Pound Sand."

The DeSantis campaign is seeking to capitalize on many Americans' negative views of Fauci, who has been a prominent but controversial figure throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

"After 600+ days of ineffective lockdowns & mandates, 3 things are certain with Dr. Fauci: He flips. He flops. He fails. To commemorate Fauci's flip flopping, we’re launching EXCLUSIVE Freedom Over Fauci Flip Flops on our Team DeSantis storefront," a Team DeSantis tweet declares.

Fauci, who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for more than three decades, is the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden.

DeSantis, a conservative Republican who has become an very popular figure on the political right, is up for re-election this year in the Sunshine State.

A video promoting the DeSantis campaign's anti-Fauci footwear declares that Fauci "can't stop freedom in Florida."

The flip-flops shown in the video appear to be different than those currently listed in the campaign store.
