'Hocus Pocus' Creator Shreds Trump's Poster Parody: 'Leave Our Witches Alone'

Trump’s campaign promoted a $24 fine art print on Twitter that appears to rip off the 1993 film's iconic poster.

President Donald Trump’s campaign team is hawking what appears to be a ripoff version of the iconic “Hocus Pocus” poster.

And one of the movie’s creators is not happy, according to ET Canada.

“I am disgusted by this putrid act of evasion,” tweeted Mick Garris, a screenwriter on the 1993 fantasy comedy starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

“This is the worst president in our history, and I object in every way his attempt to co-opt, no matter how poorly, our creation,” Garris continued. “Leave our witches alone, oh Evil One.”

Trump’s campaign promoted the $24 fine art print on Twitter Monday.

It appears to show House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) dressed up as the witches as they attempt to attack Trump, who appears in a crystal ball below, flying over Washington with an American flag.

“HOAXUS POCUS!” the poster’s description reads on Trump’s campaign website. “The Greatest Witch Hunt in the history of the USA continues. The only people scared this Halloween are Shifty Schiff, Nervous Nancy and Democrat Hack Jerry Nadler about their chances in 2020!” The design is also available on a T-shirt.

However, despite the spooky theme, “the item is not guaranteed for delivery by Halloween,” it adds.
