Jimmy Kimmel has a colorful opinion of former President Donald Trump's plan and Fox News' "War on Christmas" rhetoric with more than two months left before the big holiday.

According to HuffPost, the embattled former president released an email that featured a green Dr. Anthony Fauci. Although the nation's top infectious disease expert has a history a well-respected professional reputation in the scientific community, Trump is mockingly comparing him to the Grinch that stole Christmas.

In exchange for donations, Trump is providing free stickers of Fauci in exchange for campaign funds “so you can let everyone know you will NOT be controlled and you will NOT let FAUCI STEAL CHRISTMAS."

Trump's "War on Christmas" appears to be yet another money grab to get his supporters to help push his latest political agenda. That wasn't missed by Kimmel either. In fact, the late night host has described Trumps latest fundraising initiative as "nutty."

Fox News has also attempted to join Trump in pushing his Christmas charades. During one of Fox News host Laura Ingraham's latest segments, she played a clip of a White House press briefing that highlighted on reporter's question about the upcoming holidays. In response to the question, White House press secretary Jen Psaki assured that all holiday packages would arrive on time this year.

Weighing in on Psaki's remarks, Ingraham actually referenced the Grinch. "The Grinch has nothing on these people!" she said adding another frivolous claim about Democrats "slithering around trees and 'stealing our children's future.'"

Kimmel reacted to Ingraham's reference saying, "I have a feeling she didn't read all the way to the end of the book," he said.

HuffPost notes:

"How The Grinch Stole Christmas ends when Christmas comes anyway ― even without presents," the publication highlights. "Or as the Grinch realized:

″'Maybe Christmas,' he thought, 'doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!'"
