The new “facepalm edition” figure features a suit-clad Fauci covering his face with his hand, with his eyes closed, immortalizing a now-viral moment from a March 20 coronavirus task force briefing while President Trump spoke.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum first celebrated Fauci with an inaugural bobblehead this spring, making a model of the White House Coronavirus Task Force member motioning to “flatten the curve.”
