Newsmax Host Bob Sellers Walks Out Of Interview With My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell
Newsmax host Bob Sellers walked out on an interview with MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on Tuesday. While Lindell was brought on the network to discuss his recent ban from Twitter, the CEO insisted on talking about debunked voter fraud claims.
Among his claims that Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election, Lindell has continually accused Dominion Voting Systems of rigging the 2020 election in favor of Joe Biden.
“Mike, Mike, Mike, thank you very much,” Sellers said, attempting to get a word in with Lindell. “You’re talking about machines that we at Newsmax have not been able to verify any of those kinds of allegations. We just want to let people know that there’s nothing substantive with what we’ve seen.”
Sellers then read from a prepared statement saying, “While there were some clear evidence of some cases of vote fraud and election irregularities, the election results in every state were certified, and Newsmax accepts the results as legal and final, the courts have also supported that view.”

“We wanted to talk to you about canceling culture, we don’t want to relitigate the allegations that you’re making, Mike,” Sellers said, talking over a flustered Lindell.
Sellers asked Lindell directly about his Twitter ban which Lindell then ignored and returned to discussing debunked voter fraud allegations. “Can I ask our producers, can we get out of here please? I don’t want to have to keep going over this,” Sellers said seconds before standing up and leaving the interview.
Even before Tuesday’s interview, Dominion voting systems had already threatened Lindell with litigation and sued Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell for $1 billion in damages.
