But this was about the MyPIllow CEO’s side gig of promoting Donald Trump’s election lies ― and there was no rest for him.
In a moment that aired on the right-wing network OANN, Lindell was told the symposium was about to break for lunch, and he wasn’t having it.
“There’s no breaks,” he yelled. “We’re streaming 72 hours! Livestreaming, around the world. This never stops!”
Addressing the audience at the Sioux Falls, South Dakota, event, he declared: “You guys can go eat. That’s fine, but I ain’t eating! I’m staying up here for 72 hours before they ruin our signal!”
Lindell exited the stage a few minutes later, but quickly returned, The Daily Beast reported.
