He’s best known as the ‘MyPillowGuy’ whose rags-to-riches businesses story and his public support of President Trump catapulted him into the national spotlight.
When the virus from Wuhan China swept through America, he retrofitted his factories to help develop much-needed PPE.
But since the last election, he’s been noted for a different kind of controversy — he’s been canceled by social media for having poured his own money into an investigation of irregularities he believes changed the outcome of the last election.
Mike Lindell was invited on to NewsMax to talk about being ‘canceled’ by Twitter, and the second he started talking about the topic that got him canceled in the first place, the NewsMax anchor drowned him out with a wall of words, and a formal CYA statement — obviously prepared in advance and held in readiness for this interview — that NewsMax officially doesn’t agree with anything Mike was saying about potential election fraud.
When Mike again tries to get a word in edgewise, after being talked over by the anchor… the ‘super-professional’ anchor, Bob Sellers, stands up out of his chair and walks off the set.

The threat of that lawsuit from Dominion must really have them on edge over there.
But the story doesn’t end there.

“If you watched American Agenda yesterday, you may have seen something out of the ordinary happen during an interview with Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow,” the Newsmax host said on Wednesday afternoon. “Mike is a friend of this network, and we were supposed to discuss Twitter’s decision to ban him and the impacts of cancel culture on his business.”
After establishing the network’s admiration for one of its biggest sponsors, Sellers went on to place the blame fully on himself for any “confusion” that occurred during the interview.
“Mike thought that we were to talk about vote fraud in the recent election. It’s a topic we have covered extensively on Newsmax,” Sellers declared. “I was frustrated that we couldn’t focus on the current, very pressing issue of free speech and cancel culture and, in hindsight, there is no question that I could have handled the end of the interview differently.”
“At Newsmax, we seek out all points of view. Mike was back on Newsmax last night with Rob Schmitt on his show to continue the conversation about cancel culture and the censorship by social media,” the Newsmax anchor continued. “Mike also made clear he thinks Newsmax is ‘great’—his words—and I can tell you he will continue to be an important guest on Newsmax.” –DailyBeast
Sellers is the living embodiment of the very mentality Trump was sent to DC to change. The kiss-ass weasel more concerned about damage control and the impact of decisions on his own immediate future than he is about standing on principles. Makes me think of that greasy guy in Die Hard.
How does Bob even look himself in the mirror? He really needs to read this book and grow a pair.
