The link takes you to a contribution page that encourages you to “show off your President Obama nostalgia today!”
The NRCC responded this afternoon by taunting them over their loss in the Kansas special election this week:

But it wasn’t just Republicans giving the DCCC flak over the sticker:

@dccc You guys are a pathetic excuse for an opposition party. Thanks for nothing. This is really your idea of trying to win?

@dccc you have this idiot Trump in the White House and you're out here tweeting this stupid shit?

Meanwhile, the DCCC is focusing right now on the special election in Georgia’s 6th district next week. According to CNN, they have a radio ad out featuring none other than Samuel L. Jackson.
