World Mike Lindell Slams Fox News and Newsmax 'Cowards' During Frank Rally: 'Shame on You'
MyPillow Guy Says He ‘Probably’ Inspired Trump’s Idea of an August Restoration
Donald Trump now has the notion in his head that he could return to the White House in August. But the twice-impeached former president isn’t getting that idea from constitutional scholars or his attorneys. Instead, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell apparently inspired him. “If Trump is saying August, that is probably because he heard me say it publicly,” Lindell told The Daily Beast on Wednesday. On Monday, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted that former President Trump has been telling associates that he expects to be restored to the presidency by August, after Joe Biden’s election is overturned. President Biden, of course, legitimately won the 2020 U.S.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell condemnedand Newsmax during his rally in Wisconsin on Saturday as he railed against the mainstream media and Big Tech censorship.
The conspiracy theorist and close ally of former Presidenthosted a MAGA Frank Free Speech rally in New Richmond, Wisconsin, to push baseless claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election and criticize the alleged attack on free speech by mainstream media outlets, as well as , , YouTube and other online platforms.
Train services added to list of Melbourne COVID exposure sites, but Anglesea venues removed
There are still more than 360 locations listed as exposure sites in Victoria, even after some venues were removed after two cases were deemed false positives.The ruling that a case at Anglesea was a false positive means that all venues listed in the Surf Coast town are no longer considered exposure sites.
"We're fighting for our First Amendment rights of free speech," Lindell told the crowd. "But I want to say something. Shame on you,... This is disgusting what they've done to our country."
"Where are you, where are you Fox?" he continued. "They're already been sued ... who cares if you're gonna get sued twice by Smartmatic and Dominion. This isn't just about the machines. I have people talk about Jesus and they're getting taken off YouTube."
Lindell's hostility toward Fox News dates back to last December, when he first accused the network of conspiring withto overthrow Trump at a "Stop the Steal" rally in Washington D.C. "Why do you think Fox declared Arizona with only 14 percent of the vote in? They already knew what they did! They were in on it," he told a pro-Trump crowd at the time.
Rudy Giuliani Features MyPillow Ads as Mike Lindell Says Donald Trump Will Be President in August
The most recent episode of Giuliani's YouTube show, which has over 564,000 subscribers, questioned whether UFOs are real."I'm been sleeping on MyPillows for some time. I love them. They're simply the very best pillows ever made," Giuliani said in the most recent episode of his YouTube show, Rudy Giuliani's Common Sense. The 53-minute episode asked whether UFOs are real, in reference to a forthcoming Pentagon report on UFOs.
Relations between Lindell and Fox News continued to sour throughout the first half of 2021. In April, the pillow businessman called out the network for not reporting on his $1.6 billion lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems.
"Isn't it big news that MyPillow sued a company called Dominion that is paid for by tax dollars?" Lindell asked during a livestream for the launch of his new social media site, Frank. "Why don't you report? Fox, report, have me on."
Lindell announced the lawsuit against Dominion after Dominion filed a defamation lawsuit against MyPillow and Lindell alleging that he defamed the company by publicly claiming that their voting machines fraudulently flipped voters to favor President.
In February, Newsmax anchor Bob Sellers attempted to cut off Lindell in an interview about "cancel culture" after he repeated election falsehoods on air. "Mike, you're talking about machines. We, at Newsmax, have not been able to verify any of those kinds of allegations," Sellers said. The conservative anchor, who appeared annoyed as Lindell continued to talk over him, eventually walked off set during their conversation.
Former Trump Lawyer Says Republicans 'Spinning a Fairytale' About 2020 Election
Retired attorney John Pirich called audits pushed for by Trump and GOP allies "nothing more than a publicity stunt."Trump and many of his supporters continue to baselessly claim that the 2020 election was "rigged" or "stolen" by President Joe Biden and the Democrats. These claims have been thoroughly debunked, with dozens of their election challenge lawsuits failing in state and federal courts. Audits and recounts in key battleground states have also reaffirmed Biden's victory.
At the time, Newsmax was facing a Dominion lawsuit over false claims of election fraud. Two months later, the network issued a retraction of the false claims and an apology in an on-air segment.
Lindell renewed his feud with Newsmax on Saturday by criticizing the outlet for refusing to back his election conspiracy theories and capitulating to Dominion's lawsuit.
"Look at Newsmax, the cowards there, what they did," he said. "So we get sued and then we back out and we say, 'there's no evidence,' and then we'll back out of our lawsuit. This is disgusting what's going on."
Newsweek reached out to Fox News representatives for comment. Newsmax was unable to be reached for comment.
