Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, says he would leave “everything” behind to go to California and talk to Elon Musk about lifting his Twitter ban.
Lindell discussed his continued exclusion from Twitter, which Musk just acquired, in an interview with former Trump strategist Steve Bannon in the latter’s “War Room” podcast on Tuesday.
For promoting unfounded allegations of voting fraud, Lindell was permanently banned from Twitter in January 2021. After creating a new account in May, he was banned for the second time.
Trump, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account, Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson, and Kanye West, who legally changed his name to Ye, are among the far-right accounts that have been restored on Twitter after the social media platform was bought by billionaire Elon Musk.
In an attempt to have his suspension lifted, podcaster Steve Bannon questioned Lindell on whether Twitter had requested him to provide proof of election fraud.
No, they haven’t said Lindell before calling a former Twitter worker a “traitor.”
Would you agree to conduct an open live Twitter with Elon Musk presently? Bannon enquired. You give your proof and he takes you on mano a mano and your evidence on what you feel is the voting fraud linked to machines and other things in the 2020 election, and he might play 20 questions, and tear your face off.
Of course,” said Lindell.
And I would do it at any time, day or night, and I’ll drop everything I’m doing for you, Steve because I think it’s incredibly essential for our nation.
“And you can’t simply say somebody who talks about machines can’t be on it,” she said, “if you’re going to have a platform of free speech today and without this cancel culture.”
