Dozens Watched Mike Lindell’s ‘Thanks-A-Thon’ On YouTube After He Said ‘Millions Are Watching’
CEO of MyPillow Mike Lindell He bragged that “millions” were watching his 96-hour “Thanks-A-Thon” during the Thanksgiving holiday but was only validated by dozens of viewers.
Lindell speculated that “there were probably millions of people watching now” during the afternoon on the Thanksgiving live stream, according to For The Independent. However, the “Freedom Patriot Network” YouTube site channel Which was broadcasting the event had only dozens of viewers as of Thursday evening.
The total number of viewers was not clear since the event was also broadcast on private Lindell platforms including Frank Speech and Lindell TV, with viewership numbers not being publicly shared.
“Thanks-A-Thon” happened after Lendl missed his self-set deadline to file Supreme court The case he claimed would inexplicably lead to the “return” of the former president Donald Trump. Lendl is a staunch supporter of Trump and a supporter of the baseless and discredited conspiracy theories that the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from him.
During his appearance in front of the former Trump adviser Steve Bannon‘s War Room: Pandemic On a podcast earlier this week, Lendl suggested his own barriers to filing lawsuits were “very suspiciousWhile he lamented that state attorneys general had not signed off on the lawsuit despite his pressure.
Bannon, who is currently facing criminal contempt charges for defying a subpoena from the January 6 House committee, was also scheduled to appear as a guest during “Thanks-A-Thon,” along with other right-wing figures like Diamond and Silk.
During Thursday’s live broadcast, Lendl urged viewers to submit a copy of the Supreme Court’s unfiled complaint to the state attorney general along with an email form available on his Frank Speech website.
“Send this email to your attorney general and you say, ‘You know what? We need to save our country,'” Lindell said. “It’s your responsibility now, public defenders, you need everyone’s signature. You need to sign this.”
“No more excuses, no more excuses, I’m so busy,” he said. “We should never be too busy about the number one thing destroying our country which is the 2020 elections.”
The Email form Titled “Bring the case to the Supreme Court to stop the theft of the 2020 elections!” She argues that “our country cannot proceed with legitimate elections without first correcting the fraud in the November 2020 elections” and urges officials “to take this case to the Supreme Court to save our state and our country!”
Lindell’s allegations of massive election fraud, which are not supported by any credible evidence, include false assertions that voting machines have been hacked and that Trump’s votes are electronically “upturned” to be counted for president. Joe Biden.
Dominion Voting Systems sued Lindell for $1.3 billion over the claims. An expert who appeared during Thursday’s livestream acknowledged that machines in the often-cited Michigan county were not connected to the Internet.
Lindel the left “Thanks-A-Thon” for at least two significant periods during the first 24 hours of the event, which he previously She said It will be ’96 continuous hours’. The CEO of MyPillow left the broadcast less than two hours after it began and returned several hours later.
Lendl also disappeared shortly after interviewing former Trump attorney Gina Ellis, with MyPillow ads and footage from a “webinar” that Lendl falsely claimed would provide evidence leading to Trump being reinstated during the summer broadcast instead.
