‘#CreepyTrump’ Ad to Air on Washington, D.C. TV
MeidasTouch Super PAC Viral Ad Will Appear on Cable News Shows in White House Television Market
LOS ANGELES, CA — Today, MeidasTouch, a leading progressive Super PAC formed by the three Meiselas brothers, announced that starting tomorrow it will run the viral ad “#CreepyTrump” on cable news in the cable market that overlaps with the White House in Washington, D.C. Notably the “Creepy Trump” spot has received over five million views online. As a result of the viral nature of ad, the hashtag #CreepyTrump was the #1 trend on Twitter just days ago.
The ad will have a five-figure buy behind it and will air on FOX News Channel, CNN, and MSNBC over the course of a five day period, beginning tomorrow. The buy will focus on shows that Donald Trump watches regularly, including the following:
FOX News Channel:
- Fox and Friends
- Tucker Carlson
- Sean Hannity
- Laura Ingraham
- Anderson Cooper
- Chris Cuomo
- Don Lemon
- Morning Joe
“The message in this ad speaks for itself,” said Brett Meiselas, one of the Super PAC’s founders. “From Donald Trump’s penchant for making disturbing comments to his reprehensible unwanted touching of women, it’s clear that this man is ill, deranged, and yes, deeply creepy. He has no place in the White House.”
MeidasTouch is a progressive Democratic PAC founded by three brothers, all lifelong Democrats, Ben Meiselas (35), Brett Meiselas (30), and Jordan Meiselas (27) during the quarantine. Ben is an accomplished civil rights litigator, entertainment dealmaker, and nonprofit leader, Brett is a veteran Emmy-award winning digital editor, and Jordan is a marketing supervisor. MeidasTouch has produced over 40 videos in the past three months averaging approximately 1.5 million views each. Some of the most popular videos include ByeIvanka (6.9 million views), Vote Out Hate (7.1 million views), The Snake (3.5 million views), and Freds Failure (3.1 million views). In addition to MeidasTouch.com, the group owns the domains MAGA2020.com and FredsFailure.com. Although it was only recently formed, MeidasTouch has amassed among the largest and most engaged followings of any PAC and has become one of the most powerful grassroots movements across all platforms this election cycle.
MeidasTouch is bringing back passion to progressive politics, exposing Trump as a threat to our Democracy, and rallying Americans around shared values of civility, decency, and competence. The goal of the PAC is to defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election by spotlighting his failures, lies, creepy acts, and recklessness.
