In a MeidasTouch Father’s Day video featuring his father, Donald Trump is roasted: “Fred’s Failure.”
Former President Donald Trump’s father, Fred Trump, and their family business were featured in the progressive MeidasTouch Super PAC, which accused the younger Trump of squandering the Trump Organization riches.
On Father’s Day, the adamantly anti-Trump MeidasTouch political group unleashed its latest scathing attack on the former president, his family, and the Trump Organization. The “Fred’s Failure” advertisement depicts Trump as “fraudulent” and alleges he tricked and lied his way through multiple failed business endeavors, including Trump University and Trump Steaks, as part of its continued campaign to guarantee Trump “never gets near the White House again.” Fred appears to be quoting Shakespeare and foreseeing his son’s future economic failures in the advertisement.
“Let us remember that #FredsFailure became America’s failure on this Father’s Day. And we’ve all paid a price for it. Retweet this to everyone you know. Send it to all of your pals by text message. Let’s make sure he never goes close to the White House again,” MeidasTouch tweeted in response to the video.

“Donald inherited his father’s millions. And lost it. He inherited a booming economy. And destroyed it. Fred’s failure has become America’s failure,” said the ad released Sunday.
The former president also had politics on his mind this Father’s Day weekend, issuing a statement Sunday that blasted some of his favorite critics: “Happy Father’s Day to all, including the Radical Left, RINOs, and other Losers of the world. Hopefully, eventually, everyone will come together,” read Trump’s Save American PAC statement.
MeidasTouch’s “#FredsFailure” hashtag and social media campaign seeks to draw in funds for ActBlue and other liberal-leaning, grassroots initiatives.
Parts of the video show Fred, who founded the Trump Organization back in the 1920s in New York City. Donald would later take over the business and pass executive duties down to his own sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.
“What is the secret of your success?” the late Fred Trump, who died in 1999, can be heard saying during a 1980s speech about business. “Nine out of. This is a brief summary.
