Mike Lindell: Even the pro-Trump news outlet Newsmax doesn’t support me anymore

During a livestream on his Frank Speech platform last week, MyPillow CEO and conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell said that the pro-Trump news outlet Newsmax is not running ads for his company anymore, a potential indicator of just how isolated he is in the wake of numerous defamations lawsuits over his false claims of mass voter fraud in the 2020 election, Salon reports.

“We had Newsmax call up, and they canceled all their ads on Frank Speech,” Lindell said. 

“I’m blaming this one on you, Brannon,” Lindell said to his co-host Brannon Howse. “They said a different reason. They said you’re too much competition for them.”

“They said it wasn’t because of Dominion, which they [had] proven. They just said they’re not going to put ads up because they said it’s a competitive brand,” Lindell said, referring to the voting tech company which has filed a defamation lawsuit against pro-Trump figures, including Lindell, for making false claims about Dominion’s alleged involvement in mass voter fraud.

“It’s kind of, like, weird,” he continued. “I guess it’d be, you know, advertising another station on a station. But, you know, that’s too bad because for me this is about saving our country. It’s not about any competition with Newsmax or anyone. It’s about getting our voices, so we can get the word out.”
