MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell tried to pressure Fox News into covering his bogus election fraud claims by organizing a protest outside of Fox News headquarters.
However, as The Daily Beast's Zachary Petrizzo reports, Lindell's protest failed spectacularly, as a "little more than a dozen" people even bothered to show up.
What's more Pertrizzo writes, the poorly attended protest was just the latest in a string of embarrassing setbacks this week for Lindell's efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
"While Lindell promised supporters for weeks that he would file the suit this Tuesday, the deadline quickly came and went, with the multimillionaire publicly releasing a draft complaint with a placeholder '[Insert state here]' listed as plaintiff," he writes. "In an early Wednesday morning text exchange, however, Lindell claimed the plaintiffs would be announced at the protest. He then gave The Daily Beast the names of four states, on the condition they not be named until the announcement: All of them, however, were Democratic states, two of which were already listed as defendants in his draft."
Lindell for weeks had hyped up a complaint that he planned to file with the Supreme Court that he predicted would force the court to unanimously reinstall Trump as president, despite the fact that Trump lost the 2020 election by more than 7 million votes.
Despite all this, Lindell is still planning to conduct a 96-hour marathon broadcast over the Thanksgiving holiday to make his case for overturning the election.
