Jimmy Kimmel’s Train-Wreck Interview with MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell
ABC: Well, it really happened. The day that America has been looking forward to since Mike Lindell accepted Jimmy Kimmel’s invitation to his bizarro live event finally arrived on Wednesday, and there was the flesh-and-blood MyPillow CEO sitting across from him. his supposed late night enemy. Minnesota got to the bottom of the deepest conspiracy in American political history, ”Kimmel said at the top of his monologue. “It’s so crazy, it’s almost hard to believe.” As the real Lindell presumably watched backstage, the host was visited by his own MyPillow guy, comedian James Adomian, who was limping on stage with a “Who Farted?” tank top and went into a racist panic when he spotted Guillermo sitting backstage. a stolen presidential election. When Kimmel asked his guest if he had been vaccinated, Lindell replied no, which is why they weren’t together in a bed full of pillows as previously promised. “I meant for the rage,” Kimmel joked. Kimmel suggested that Lindell actually had a lot in common with Hunter Biden, given their shared history of crack addiction, and asked him directly for the source of his “paranoia” and the fact that he had apparently been “hidden” for several years. month. From Mike Lindell to Elon Musk, who deserves a late night TV rig? “That’s right, I worked hard on this election and the machines,” Lindell said, vaguely. After removing some of his basic bio, Lindell admitted he didn’t know anything about politics until he met Donald Trump in 2016. “Some would say you still don’t, Mike, to be honest,” Kimmel replied.

Without wasting time, Lindell distanced himself from the riot and continued to lash out against “the machines” and Dominion Voting Systems, which is now suing him for more than $ 1 billion in damages for his campaign. of baseless denigration. Then the two began to get bogged down in a back and forth of allegations before Kimmel backed down. “Do you think it’s weird, objectively, to look at you, to walk away, why is the only person in the country who has this proof is a guy who sells pillows on the cable?” Jimmy Kimmel walks off on Tucker Carlson’s ‘Child Abuse’ anti-mask RantLindell couldn’t quite answer that question, showing no sign of self-awareness and prompting Kimmel to express what seemed be a real concern. “I’m worried about you,” he said. “I feel like you may be self-destructing, that you’ve lost everything time and time again in your life.” At the end of the interview, after Lindell denied urging Trump to impose “martial law if necessary” and claimed he never meant for his $ 50,000 donation to the Lin Wood Legal Fund to help To bail out Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, Adomian returned to challenge his lookalike in a pillow fight at the Minnesota State Fair. joke, and laughing with the two comedians as Kimmel goes commercial.
