MyPillow CEO pranked by fake Trump call

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on Monday was duped by a prank caller pretending to be former President Trump while taking live calls during a telethon to raise money for his new social media site.

Lindell was hosting a two-day “Frankathon” to promote his new social media platform, Frank. As he was taking calls during the event, Lindell cut to a caller who claimed she has Trump on the line.

“Oh, we have the president here, our real president, everyone,” Lindell said.


The prank caller started to shout obscenities, and Lindell swiftly moved to end the call. 

“You see what they're doing. They're attacking us,” Lindell said after the incident.

The MyPillow CEO also received a prank call from another caller who posed as a Wall Street Journal reporter.


Lindell, one of the most vocal supporters of Trump's conspiracy theories about the 2020 election,  announced plans last week to create Frank after being banned from Twitter for spreading conspiracy theories about last year's elections. Lindell said he’s been working on the site for four years.

Lindell was sued by Dominion Voting Systems in February for pushing unproven claims that its machines were used to help President BidenJoe BidenBiden says Beau's assessment of first 100 days would be 'Be who you are' Biden: McCarthy's support of Cheney ouster is 'above my pay grade' Conservative group sues over prioritization of women, minorities for restaurant aid MORE steal the November election from Trump.
