MyPillow CEOgot testy when “Daily Show” correspondent confronted him about espousing election conspiracy theories at his recent “free speech” rally.
“This is the crime of the century you’re describing and they came to the MyPillow guy,” Klepper said, setting the stage for an increasingly tense exchange between the two.
Lindell repeated his claim that former Presidentwould somehow be back in office in August. When Klepper asked what would happen if Trump wasn’t back in power, Lindell rattled off a bunch of next steps involving individual states.
“It’s like watching that Bigfoot show,” Klepper said. “They don’t find Bigfoot at the end, but if you tune in next week, maybe it’s going to happen.”
That elicited a chuckle from Lindell.
“Good one,” he admitted.
“Thank you,” Klepper replied.
“You guys are horrible,” Lindell said, and then stormed off.
Lindell was steamed about the segment before it even aired, sharing his side of the confrontation during a podcast interview this week. Itmake him look any better.
