Dr. Fauci's face will soon be on a bobblehead

The United States' top infectious disease specialist is getting his own bobblehead

MILWAUKEE -- The United States' top infectious disease specialist is getting his own bobblehead.

The museum in Milwaukee picked Fauci because many people see the plain-speaking expert on the coronavirus as a hero right now, said co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar.

“He isn't trying to spin things," he said. "He isn't trying to make people happy and tell him what they want to hear. He's actually telling them, you know, how he sees it as an expert. And I think that's really what we need him this time.”

Fauci's face also appears on socks. And a Rochester, New York, shop is selling doughnuts with his face, surrounded by white frosting and topped off with red, white and blue sprinkles.

“Hopefully it does help a lot of people through the donation and also brings a smile to people's faces as we all could also use something to smile about right now,” he said.
