Mike Lindell was, at one time, a very important figure in the Fox News world. The pillow entrepreneur spent millions each month hawking his products on the network. As a result, he often appeared on the channels shows despite a complete lack of political acumen.
But now Lindell is too toxic for even Fox News. His unhinged theories about the election are getting crazier. And any network that platforms him could potentially be sued.
This weekend, the businessman held his largely mocked cyber symposium. And during a recent appearance on OAN, Lindell blasted Sean Hannity for failing to cover the event.
The Pillow Guy raged:
“Fox, you need to step it up and help save our country. I seen stuff by Dan Bongino on there, he goes, I say whatever I want on my show and people are going after him … Sean Hannity once told me, Mike, I can say anything I want on Fox as long as it’s the truth. Well the truth is, Sean, we had a cyber symposium, and the truth is … you’re not saying anything on your show! Neither are you, Laura. Trunker—” a seeming reference to Tucker Carlson “—tried a few times to talk about the 2020 election, I give him some credit … but none of ’em were talking!”

Mike Lindell, who has apparently just been given free rein of OAN's airwaves tonight, yells at Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham for not covering his "cyber symposium," but does give credit to Tucker — who he calls "Trunker" — for talking about the 2020 election a "few times." pic.twitter.com/gFDDaODRQv
