Newsmax anchor Bob Sellers walked from an interview with MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Tuesday after the prominent Trump supporter used the segment to voice claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Sellers and co-host Heather Childers initially brought Lindell onto the show to discuss Twitter’s decision to shut down the corporate MyPillow account after the businessman used it to tweet similar allegations over the weekend.
“Well, first mine was taken down because we have all the election fraud with these Dominion machines. We have 100 percent proof, and then when they took it down — ” Lindell said before he was interrupted by Sellers.
“Mike, you’re talking about machines,” Sellers interjected. “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 that we’ve seen.”
Sellers went on to read a Newsmax statement saying that while there was “some clear evidence of some cases of voting fraud and election irregularities,” the election results of every state have been certified, and “Newsmax accepts the results as legal and final.”
“We wanted to talk to you about canceling culture if you will. We don’t want to re-litigate the allegations that you’re making, Mike,” Sellers continued.
The host then asked whether Lindell thought Twitter’s suspension of the corporate MyPillow account could be temporary rather than permanent.
Lindell replied that Twitter banned him because he is “reviewing all the evidence” of “all the election fraud with these machines.”
“Can I ask our producers, can we get out of here please,” Sellers interrupted before finally abandoning the interview and walking off-screen.
