Trump Must Stop Misrepresenting Dr. Fauci in Campaign Ad

Target: Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America

Goal: Remove ad that falsely touts Dr. Fauci’s approval of Trump’s pandemic response.

The most recent addition to Trump’s slew of damaging propaganda bragged about the president’s response to COVID-19 and used footage of Dr. Anthony S. Fauci out of context, claiming that the acclaimed immunologist supports Trump’s handling of the pandemic.

The footage shows Dr. Fauci stating “I can’t imagine that…anybody could be doing more.” Fauci denied stating this in reference to Trump, confirming that it referenced the broader government, “The use of my name and my words by the G.O.P. campaign was done without my permission, and the actual words themselves were taken out of context, based on something that I said months ago regarding the entire effort of the task force.” In response, Trump took to Twitter and simply stated, “They are indeed Dr. Fauci’s own words.”

Spreading such misinformation less than a month before the election is problematic and highly inappropriate. Sign below and demand that Trump remove this ad immediately and apologize to Dr. Fauci for using his words without his consent.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

Your most recent campaign ad utilizes footage of Dr. Anthony S. Fauci applauding the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in Dr. Fauci’s own words, his quote was “…taken out of context, based on something that I said months ago regarding the entire effort of the task force.” Previous news footage shows Dr. Fauci making this exact statement in reference to the efforts of the broader government.

Your use of this recording without Dr. Fauci’s permission is inexcusable and misquoting an infectious disease expert for votes during a pandemic is highly inappropriate. I demand that you remove this ad at once and apologize.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This doesn’t surprise me at all as Trump is a despicable, lying, narcissistic, misogynistic, racist, ignorant, cruel, pathetic, fat, orange moron who literally only cares about himself! Do not be fooled, he is NOT a Christian! He does NOT value the world God made or his fellow citizens of the world! He has done NOTHING to make America great again! The rest of the world looks on in horror and disbelief at how many people in the US still support him! Crazy! Why the hell would anyone campaign for ‘America First’! Does the rest of the world not exist! Does what happens in or to the rest of the world not affect America! Does America not have, not want or not need allies! Does America not need to trade with the rest of the world! Pathetic, deceitful, underhand bully! To all those Republicans who still think he’s great – you are fools!

    All these trumpers have TDS – Trump Derangement Syndrome. They are all cult members for this despicable, deranged, sick bastard of a man they call their leader. BIDEN 2020. A BLUE SUNAMI IS COMING.

    • Not all are cult members. You have to hear former tRump supporters who will be voting BLUE ALL THE WAY. Many are first timers voting for Dems. In 1. 2. 3. Trumptards will call them liars or fake news.
