'Defeated' Mike Lindell Ends 96-hour TV Marathon After Failing to Gain Support

Source: Newsweek

Mike Lindell ended a 96-hour online marathon entitled, Thanks-a-thon, after failing to gain strong support for his Supreme Court case.

The MyPillow CEO has long been a fervent supporter of former President Donald Trump and has continued to make baseless claims that the 2020 election was rigged in favour of President Joe Biden and that he would file a lawsuit.

Despite providing no evidence for widespread election fraud, Lindell claimed he would have the support of multiple states' attorneys in general as he hoped to take this issue to the Supreme Court.

The 60-year-old claimed he would have this support by Thanksgiving, a deadline he set himself, but he did not receive it and the lawsuit was not filed.

Thanks for nothing: Amid underwhelming support, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell ends his marathon to fund his putative Supreme Court suit against the 2020 election.

16. Well, *trying* to sell them, anyway.

I get the feeling that pretty much everyone that wanted one of those lumpy overpriced things would have already sent their money to him, and most of those folks are probably pretty well tapped out, what with their sending money to him, Bannon, and the the rest of the various tRump and tRump-related grifts.

36. "On the Youtube stream of the event, only a dozen people were watching the event."

During the stream, Newsweek also reported on the low number of viewers despite the claim by Lindell that millions were watching. On the Youtube stream of the event, only a dozen people were watching the event.

Posted on Lindell's Youtube channel, Freedom Patriot Network, the stream ended with 9,164 views.

The exact viewing figures are unclear as the event was also being streamed on Lindell's own platforms, Frank Speech, and Lindell TV where viewing figures are not shared publicly.

On Wednesday, Lindell held a protest outside the Fox News headquarters in Manhattan in the hopes the network would start covering his election fraud case. Only a handful of protesters joined the pillow salesman in the rally, where they could be seen on camera chanting ""Shame on Fox, shame on Fox."

9. Why does such a tiny minority of nutjobs rule the GOP and all political discourse in this country?

Republicans in general are WAY over-represented in state legislatures and Congress, if you just go by percentage of the voting population. But even inside of THAT, this hardcore Trumper super-minority is sucking way too much oxygen out of the room.

26. It figures that the word "till" is related to fertilizer.

"Till is defined as to prepare land for crops to be planted by plowing and fertilizing. An example of to till is turning over the soil in a garden. ... To work (land) in raising crops, as by plowing and fertilizing; cultivate."

I guess Mike wants to plow and fertilize tRump supporters. He is spreading fertilizer for 96 hours. Typical for a GQP moron except that the GQP spreads fertilizer 24/7.

28. LOL " he did not receive (the support" ) Newsweek must be angling for an ad buy from Lindell

Lindell claimed he would have the support of multiple states' attorneys in general as he hoped to take this issue to the Supreme Court. The 60-year-old claimed he would have this support by Thanksgiving, a deadline he set himself, but he did not receive it and the lawsuit was not filed.


Lindell simply concluded that his grifting wasn't profitable anymore. The expenses stopped being covered by his take some time ago. He's out of cash and his creditors are after him. He's selling his products at a whopping 2/3 discount just to keep some cash flow. He sold his $2.5 million private plane a few weeks ago. He faces a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit and real attorneys cost real money.

29. He should pay Jim Bakker to come on and do the get-down-on-his-knees trick.

I watched Bakker do that back in the late 70s on late-night TV during a long night of drinking. That was long before he got busted. He got on his knees and begged people to call in and donate $500 each to his church grift.

I suspect tRump, Lindell, Bakker, Swaggart, Robertson and Graham are all cast from the same rotten mold in the mental sense.

Does the MyPillow pillow resists tear stains?..... .....

33. He Didn't Fail...

He collected a lot of donations and pillow sales. Remember, these engagements are for trump supporter only, 74,244,000 suckers. They are the only ones who suck up his B.S.! Trump supporters are keeping everyone in trump's inner circle rich! So politically, it was a complete flop, otherwise he made lots of money. As long as that number stays the same, mike, trump, etc., will continue to make money.

If he really believes that the election (and by extension, his beloved 'murica) was stolen by evil, chin-rubbing lefties, perhaps he should just end it all and go smother himself with one of his crappy pillows.

our future as a country because if there really were huge numbers of trump supporters out there they would have viewed this marathon and My Pillow Guy's marathon would have reflected much higher viewer numbers.
