A Democratic super PAC will air an ad attacking President TrumpDonald John TrumpJoe Arpaio loses bid for his old position as sheriff Trump brushes off view that Russia denigrating Biden: 'Nobody's been tougher on Russia than I have' Trump tees up executive orders on economy but won't sign yet MORE as “creepy” on Fox News, CNN and MSNBC starting Wednesday. 

The ad from the MeidasTouch super PAC was launched Sunday on Twitter. It had 5.2 million views on Twitter as of Tuesday. 


The super PAC told The Hill it is planning to air the TV version of the ad over the course of a five-day period starting Wednesday, with a focus on shows “Trump watches regularly.”

The ad will air on “Fox & Friends” as well on Fox shows hosted by Tucker CarlsonTucker CarlsonTucker Carlson calls Fauci a 'fraud' after tense hearing Tucker Carlson calls Obama 'one of the sleaziest and most dishonest figures' in US political history Don't count out Duckworth in Biden VP race MORE, Sean HannitySean Patrick HannityTennessee primary battle turns nasty for Republicans CNN's Ana Navarro to host Biden roundtable on making 'Trump a one-term president' Hannity selling 'priority access' to new book as Trump fundraiser MORE and Laura IngrahamLaura Anne IngrahamWisconsin Republicans raise questions about death of Black Trump supporter Cain given tributes after death from COVID-19 Trump again targets Fox: 'They totally forgot who got them where they are' MORE.

“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.”

“A lot of really creepy statements, actions for sure, but statements that he's made in the past that make me very uncomfortable, certainly as a mother but as a person who breathes air,” Conway is heard saying in the ad, referring to Biden. 

The ad intersperses clips of Conway’s comments with a compilation of remarks Trump has made about women, including his daughters.

In a 2006 interview on "The View" that Trump did with his daughter Ivanka, for example, Trump said that “if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

It also features a clip from a 1994 episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” in which Trump was asked what attributes his daughter Tiffany, then just a 1-year-old, had inherited from her parents. 

“I think that she’s got a lot of Marla. She’s really a beautiful baby,” Trump said, referring to Marla Maples, his then-wife. “She’s got Marla’s legs. We don’t know whether or not she’s got this part yet, but time will tell,” he added, gesturing to his chest. 

The super PAC was formed by three brothers — Ben, Brett and Jordan Meiselas — during the course of shutdowns from the coronavirus pandemic. The PAC describes itself as having a goal of defeating Trump in the 2020 election “by spotlighting his failures, lies, creepy acts and recklessness.” 

A spokesperson for the Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
