WATCH LIVE – Mike Lindell’s 96 hour Thanks A Thon Livestream
“This is absolutely the biggest cover-up for the biggest crime in history,” Lindell told right-wing host Steve Bannon on Friday. “I cannot wait to drop this Supreme Court case on Tuesday at 9 a.m. before Thanksgiving, and the whole world is going to be watching all this unfold over Thanksgiving.”
Lindell predicted that up to 30 state attorneys general would join his lawsuit claiming that the election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.
“I believe it will be 9-0 that they will at least look at it,” he said of the court, “that they’re going to take it down.”
MyPillow CEO has been talking up November 25 as the day that the Supreme Court will convene to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. While you’re stuffing the turkey, Lindell will be holding a multi-day “Thanksathon” broadcast in honor of the occasion.
“I cannot wait to drop this Supreme Court case the Tuesday at 9 a.m. before Thanksgiving, and the whole world is going to be watching all this unfold over Thanksgiving,” he told Steve Bannon on Friday (watch it above). “We’re going to do a Thanksathon from Wednesday night of Thanksgiving to Sunday.”
“And you’re going to be sitting around the table — this is very important to our country and the world — everyone can be sitting around the table and going, ‘Hey, what do you think of that? You think the Supreme Court is going to accept it and protect our country like they’re supposed to?'” the pillow executive opined.
Lindell thinks the Thanksathon will be a conversation starter around the turkey day table and that it’s “going to be a uniting” experience. At the same time, Bannon opined it could lead to “fistfights.” This is the first, and hopefully only, time that I have ever agreed with Steve Bannon. Uncle Tim gets punchy after the second glass of wine.
I’ll see you, “every person in the world,” two days before Thanksgiving.
The official tweet by @patriottakes said, “Mike Lindell says he’s launching his voter fraud case with the Supreme Court 2 days before Thanksgiving so that every person in the world will talk about it for four days.”
Controversy shrouds Mike Lindell’s claims regarding Trump’s reinstatement
Mr. Lindell said earlier this year that Mr. Trump would be reinstated by August. When that didn’t come to pass, Mr. Lindell instead said it would occur in September or October. On Tuesday, the conspiracy theorist said it would happen in November.
“This is the big announcement, everyone,” Mr. Lindell told Mr. Bannon. “I made a promise to this country that with all the evidence I have, that we would get it to the Supreme Court, and I predicted they would vote 9-0 to look at the evidence.”
“Originally, I had hoped for August and September,” Mr. Lindell added. “I asked all the lawyers just yesterday. We are taking this case to the Supreme Court before Thanksgiving. Now maybe Fox [News] will report that today. You heard it here first because our case is ready. We are bringing it to the Supreme Court before Thanksgiving.”
The Twitter backlash surrounding Lindell’s claims regarding Trump’s reinstatement
Twitter users were quick to mock Mr. Lindell for his fresh prediction, with one tweeting:
“None of Mike Lindell’s predictions has come true. Mike is begging Trump to be his BFF.”
“MyPillow guy mocked for pushing back Trump’s ‘reinstatement’ to Thanksgiving.”
“Just keep pushing those goalposts to keep people hanging on so they will keep giving money.”
Speaking to former Trump White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, Mr. Lindell changed his estimation for when the Supreme Court will hear arguments that the results of the 2020 election should be overturned.
There’s no evidence that the results of the 2020 election were affected by voter fraud, as many Trump allies such as Mr. Lindell have claimed.
Last month, Mr. Lindell held a “cyber symposium” in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to go over supposed evidence of voter fraud. Despite that the 72-hour-event didn’t lead to Mr. Trump returning to the White House, Mr. Lindell said it was a “home run” and “the best success we could ever ask for.”
“This ridiculous prediction, like Mike Lindell’s prior ones regarding the same thing, seems calculated to achieve little more than to provide a vehicle for him to fundraise,” Jeff Dannenberg added.
“Who the hell is Mike Lindell, and why would anyone listen to that lunatic? I am so sick of these people trying to appeal to Trump’s base for financial reasons but destroying our country with lies at the same time,” Janice Garner wrote.
“Just keep pushing those goalposts to keep people hanging on so they will keep giving money,” another Twitter user added.
