One of the oddest figures that gained notoriety during the Trump presidency has been Mike Lindell, the CEO of pillow manufacturer My Pillow. 

Lindell became one of the most prominent figures of Trump’s baseless conspiracy theories, appearing on numerous news networks, paying lip-service for the ex-president and showering him with praise

As a result, Lindell has seen his pillow products dropped by major retailers and has also seen himself and MyPillow permanently suspended from Twitter for spreading the conspiracy theories. 

Well, he’s also been censored on conservative news channels now. During an appearance on Newsmax used his airtime to consistently talk over host Bob Sellers. Lindell spread conspiracy theories about Dominion voting machines when he was actually supposed to be talking about his Twitter ban.

Sellers injected himself into Lindell’s rant and tried to put a stop to it by saying, “We at Newsmax have not been able to verify any of those kinds of allegations. We just want to let people know that there’s nothing substantive about them.”

Sellers tried to Lindell back on track and asked him if he believed his Twitter ban could only be temporary. Lindell said that he wanted the ban to be “permanent” and returned to yelling about conspiracy theories. Sensing that he wasn’t going to get anything worthwhile out of Lindell, Sellers asked his producers “can we get out of here please? I don’t want to keep going over this.”

After Lindell wasn’t taken off the air, Sellers decided he would take himself off the air and walked away from the camera leaving his co-host, Heather Childers to try and get through the interview herself.

The clip has already been viewed more than 10 million times on Twitter and people didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Lindell has since been back on Newsmax where he actually managed to talk about so-called ‘cancel culture’ and not mention any conspiracy theories. Predictably manner of the comment in reply to the Newsmax tweet, seemed to be in support of Lindell and were calling for Sellers to be fired.
