“Our Real President!” Watch Mike Lindell Get Trolled On Frank
Mike Lindell is promoting his new social media site, Frank. He’s made a lot of promises bout how the content on the site will be controlled and protected. However, days after the launch was supposed to happen, he’s blaming ‘attacks’ for continued delays, and getting pranked on livestream.
Currently, Frank Speech isn’t yet hosting any actual social media activity — it’s instead showing a livestream of Lindell with live and phone-in guests, talking about Frank and conservative politics.
However, prank callers have gotten their hands on the phone number for the Frank-a-thon, and they aren’t being gentle. Salon writer Zachary Petrizzo shared a few clips of the livestream on Twitter.

While there’s legitimate criticism for the pranks as crude and immature, they put Lindell’s credulity and victim complex on stark display. Even after believing the fake ‘reporter,’ and then complaining about the spate of ‘attacks,’ Lindell is still happy to believe when he’s told that Donald Trump has called to speak to him.
“Our real president!” Lindell gushes, before the fake Trump reveals himself.
Lindell has spent recent weeks assuring the public that his site, despite being a free speech haven, will be protected against illegal activity and profanity.
However, days after he was supposed to be vetting applicants signing up for the network, Lindell can’t even vet callers, or get the site online. As seen above, he’s still promising his Telegram followers that Frank will be active as soon as possible.
