Folks, it just doesn’t get much better than this.
MyPillow CEO and pro-Trump conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell recently hosted a 48-hour long “FRANK-a-thon” meant to promote his new, glitch-filled social media platform “FrankSpeech,” that has gone about as smashingly as you’d expect a social media platform invented by a pillow salesman to go. But, as bad as his platform launch has gone, his “FRANK-a-thon” went even worse.
Throughout the two-day-long event, Lindell wadded through more than a few call-ins from pranksters.
Salon’s Zachary Petrizzo took to Twitter to share two video clips of the MyPillow CEO trying to field these crank calls. In one of the videos posted to a social media platform that Lindell’s not even allowed on anymore, the pillow salesman can be seen taking a call from an individual that he believes to be former President Donald Trump. And, honestly, it sounds just like him.

“Well, we have the President here, our real president, everyone,” Lindell exclaims with a clear look of excitement plastered all over his face. “Hello, Mr. President.”
But that excitement went out the door as quickly as it came when the individual on the other end of the line, who very much was not Donald Trump but rather a really good Trump impersonator, began to scream profanities into the phone. Lindell, clearly caught off guard, began to frantically scramble to hang up the phone as the tirade of cuss words continued to pour out of the speaker.
The MyPillow CEO, with embarrassment all over his face, quickly went off on a rant about how they’re being attack and “hacked.” But, let’s face it, dude. You just got duped.
Someone give that caller a medal.
