Probably the greatest recognized right-wing conspiracy theorists within the nation is Mike Lindell. The My Pillow Man has ignored lawsuits and mockery to proceed pushing the concept that Trump will probably be president once more. And like QAnon, he retains on transferring the goalposts.
Lindell had not too long ago claimed that Trump can be again in workplace by August. However throughout a current interview with Rolling Stone, the pillow entrepreneur pushed the date again to inside 6 months.
And never solely did the My Pillow Man declare that Trump gained, he says that it wasn’t even actually shut. “There was 147 million registered to vote. OK, Biden received 80 million and Trump received 75 million. That’s 10 million additional voters,” he claimed. “Trump gained 80 million to 68 million.”
Not solely did Lindell’s declare symbolize a 19 million vote swing, he was additionally method off on the quantity of registered voters in the USA. The precise quantity stands at 213 million.
The My Pllow Man additionally predicted, “Six months from now, Trump will probably be our actual president and our nation will probably be heading towards its biggest rebirth in historical past.”
Lindell closed by saying that the rebel was a set-up. “I’ve by no means even watched footage of that,” he mentioned. “However for my part, it was a setup. I’ve been to over 50 rallies 12 months. There has by no means been one incident. And also you don’t assume it was a setup? Gimme a break.”
