MeidasTouch Flies 'LoserPalooza' Banner Over Trump Rally in Florida, Hashtag Trends on Twitter

Former President Donald Trump's second major post-White House rally in Florida Saturday night was the scene of both raucous Republican campaigning as well as trolling from both land and sky.

MeidasTouch—the vigilantly anti-Trump group founded by the three Meiselas brothers Ben, Brett and Jordan—were behind a neon light-adorned plane that trolled the skies above Trump's "Save America" rally in Sarasota. The flashing aircraft featured a bright sign that simply read "LOSER-PALOOZA," and was promptly noted by local TV news channels and rallygoer cell phone videos posted to social media.

"I think after tonight, the evidence is conclusive. The gang at @MeidasTouch are the #1 Trump Trollers on planet earth. They own the ground and sky in this category after tonight. #LoserPalooza," one fellow Trump critic tweeted early Sunday morning, sharing a picture of the MeidasTouch-purchased plane.

"It's a bird, it's a plane, it's our #LoserPalooza plane flying over the Trump loser fest," the MeidasTouch.com Twitter account gloated Saturday night. The group posted cell phone video recorded from onboard the aircraft as well as footage recorded by people on the ground.

"Aw, did we ruin your white supremacist safe space? #LoserPalooza," the MeidasTouch account quipped Sunday, responding to a Trump supporter who demanded to know how such a plane could "fly over a no fly zone for almost an hour without being forced out of the sky!"

Videos posted across social media juxtapose Trump's typical rally remarks alongside footage of the plane flying above the Sarasota Fairgrounds Saturday night. The former president spoke for about 90 minutes.

The "Retire Rubio" political action committee, a separate group that routinely targets Florida GOP Senator Marco Rubio, organized a similarly protest of its own outside the Sarasota Fairgrounds. A large box truck featured a sign that read "Retire 'Little' Marco,' and depicted the 5-foot-9-inch-tall senator appearing tiny while sitting in a massive chair.

Another vehemently anti-Trump political group, the ex-Republican-run Lincoln Project, also sought to troll the former president this weekend. On Friday, the Lincoln Project released a video that mocked Trump's ongoing feud with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell: "Does Mitch call the shots now, Donald? He's the boss now."

During a Saturday interview with Newsmax prior to the Florida rally, Trump continued blasting McConnell for not having overturned the 2020 presidential election results in his favor.

Two other single-engine aircraft were spotted near the Sarasota Trump rally Saturday with signs reading "Convict Trump and Lock Him UP!" as well as "Trump: Worst President Ever."

Newsweek reached out to representatives at the former president's super PAC for any additional remarks about the rally and its attendees.
