MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell appeared on “Real America’s Voice” on Wednesday and shared a leaked video with host Steve Bannon of an interview Lindell had done with The Daily Show before it could be aired on Comedy Central.
Lindell told Bannon that The Daily Show producers had insisted on conducting his interview in front of portable toilets. The interview was filmed over the weekend as Lindell was hosting a rally that he hoped would bring attention to his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Bannon then aired about six minutes of cell phone video showing Daily Show personality Jordan Klepper interviewing Lindell. And Lindell is clearly Big Mad.
“We’re supposed to be letting people like you destroy us?” Lindell yells before complaining that Klepper had not watched his videos about the election.
“Mike, I watched all of your pillow commercials,” Klepper replies dryly.
“You’re being a jokester, you’re being real funny,” Lindell says. “Shame on you for what you’ve done to our country when you’re saying stuff like that. This has nothing to do with the pillow!”

“We have cyber evidence! Don’t you care?” he continues. “Don’t you care your country was attacked and China, the CCP was behind this? You’ve got to watch the movies. You’ll go, ‘Wow, Mike, this is amazing!'”
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell will be releasing a nine-minute video of him speaking to The Daily Show at his most recent "Frank" rally, I'm told – because he is mad over the comedy show potentially "cutting up" his interview.

After Klepper makes a joke about Mare of Easttown that Lindell doesn’t get because he doesn’t watch HBO, he reaches his limit with the interview. “What are you doing here?” the MyPillow CEO whines. “You’re trying to mock me.”
“I just want one of the pillows,” Klepper quips.
