After the November elections, people in the MAGA world were keen to spare Donald Trump’s feelings. It wasn’t Trump’s fault he’d lost, they claimed, there was something squirrel-like about the voting machines.
While they may have made this claim, they had no evidence to support their claims. And Dominion, the maker of the voting machines, began threatening the people of the Trump world with lawsuits.
The majority of those named in the lawsuits have at least abandoned their claims. Conservative media broadcaster Newsmax recently settled down with Dominion and apologized.
But Mike Lindell, the greatest conspiracy theorist of them all, has increasingly disengaged. The pillow magnate recently told participants at a Bikers for Trump event: “What is this ex-crack addict sitting next to the president? Jesus is real! “
The founder of My Pillow then began telling audiences about miracles he had witnessed. Then he told a story about Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley and how a picture of the two men helped him get closer to Jesus.
Lindell ended his rant with the assertion: “To be on the news again, I want Dominion to sue me. I have all the evidence. ”
The pillow CEO has been making these claims for months. He has also produced more than one “documentary” on his conspiracy theory. And while he projects personal trust, the lawsuits don’t look promising to Lindell.
