The Happy Warriors of “The Meidas Touch”

Brett, Ben and Jordan Meiselas: “The Meidas Touch”

The three brothers who created the Meidas Touch PAC are the new happy warriors of politics. They gleefully donate their time and talents to skewering MAGA-preaching politicians. Their fast-response videos have generated millions of hits, and led to a burgeoning grassroots movement that supports a growing multimedia structure and an ever-increasing number of local Meidas Touch chapters.
Jeff Timmer and Mark Brewer talk about one of the most improbable stories of the 2020 campaign cycle with Meidas Touch creators Brett, Jordan and Ben Meilesas.
