During his Sarasota
rally on Saturday, Donald Trump
received embarrassing news
from above in the form of a plane flashing the neon message, "Loser-Palooza."
The message, which flew over the Florida
fairgrounds where Trump was speaking, was funded and arranged by the anti-Trump political action committee MeidasTouch
, and it quickly trended on Twitter
after being noticed by radio and television journalists
, as well as spectators snapping cell phone photos
“It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s our #LoserPalooza plane flying
over the Trump loser fest,” MediasTouch

Several Twitter users pointed out that because Trump's favorite insult is "loser," the message was almost perfect.
Trump complained about losing the presidential election
yet again in Sarasota, though he falsely claimed the race was rigged.
He also appeared to admit to some of the key points in the 15-count federal indictment
filed last week against the Trump Organization
and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg
— that the company and Weisselberg failed to pay taxes
on what Trump referred to as "fringe benefits."
According to the indictment, those "fringe benefits" were part of a scheme to allegedly avoid massive amounts of taxes for both the Trump Organization and executives. "You didn't pay tax," Trump told the audience. "I don't even know. Do you have to? Does anybody know the answer to that stuff?"
Two other planes spotted near the rally were reportedly carrying message banners that read "Convict Trump and Lock Him Up!" and "Trump: Worst President Ever."
However, “Loser-Palooza” was a big hit with Twitter users.

#LoserPalooza is what happens when you're too stupid to just "take the L" and go home after a humiliating defeat. pic.twitter.com/xIRxVFQSUW — Strictly (@StrictlyChristo) July 4, 2021
