During an event promoting his new “FrankSpeech” social media platform, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was bombarded by prank callers, causing him to scramble to cut them off.
One video shared to Twitter shows Lindell taking a call from someone claiming to be a Wall Street Journal reporter, and then later realizing that the call is a joke.
“You see what they’re doing everybody?” Lindell said after hanging up on the caller. “That was an attack — you heard it here. This is what these attack groups are doing. Prime example there.”
Another video shows Lindell taking a call from someone claiming to be former President Donald Trump, but Lindell’s excitement quickly turns to dismay after the caller started hurling profanities.
“You see that they’re doing — they’re attacking us — they’re attacking us and this is what … they’re attacking into our phones…”
Poor guy. He needs help.
