Cancel Culture Melt Down: MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell has a meltdown over voting machines on the Trump-loving ultra-conservative network Newsmax, causing host Bob Sellers to walk off the set in disgust.
A Newsmax segment went off the rails when the MyPillow guy started ranting about voting machines, prompting the anchor to walk off the set.
The Week reports:
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s wild conspiracy theories about the presidential election forced NewsMax host Bob Sellers to walk out of their on-air interview in frustration on Tuesday.
During the interview, an obviously distraught and frantic Lindell ranted about voting machines, even after Newmax host Bob Sellers cut the My Pillow guy off, and explained that there is no evidence that voting machines were involved in any vote tampering or election fraud.
However, Lindell continued to repeat the false conspiracy theory, prompting the host to walk off the set.

The irony of this segment about deplatforming, where they turn the MyPillow guy’s mic down and recite a legal statement over him until one of the anchors just leaves to protect himself from further legal jeopardy, shouldn’t be lost on anybody. https://t.co/ah89Gs7BkJ

I love how the Newsmax host has, on his desk, a prepared statement to read in case one of their many uncontrollable and dishonest guests says a single word about voting systems. https://t.co/2GugUVo458

When you’re too nutty for Newsmax, the only place literally left is “random street corner with a sandwich board” https://t.co/QwSRTmdAea
