Mike Lindell Trolls Fox News With Pathetic Rally

MyPillow CEO and 2020 dead-ender-who-will-simply-never-quit Mike Lindell attempted to put pressure on Fox News to cover his non-existent election fraud case—which he’s long-promised to file with the Supreme Court—by holding a poorly attended rally outside the cable channel’s offices.
On Wednesday morning, a smattering of protesters gathered in Lindell’s name in front of Fox News headquarters on 6th Avenue in Manhattan, where, the MAGA mogul told The Daily Beast, the names of the mystery plaintiffs bringing his mythical filing to the high court would, at last, be revealed.
Alas, the names were not revealed.
Instead, videos from the slapdash protest, which Lindell shared with The Daily Beast, showed a moderately engaged crew numbering little more than a dozen. They wagged signs branded with “Frank Speech”—the name of Lindell’s homespun social-media platform—and expressed their displeasure with the conservative cable news network for its insufficiently fealty to their pillow-hawking leader.
“Shame on Fox! Shame on Fox!” went one chant, mirroring Lindell’s now-signature tagline. “Fox failed! We want the truth!” went another. A billboard truck parked on the street appeared to take aim at “Faux News,” asking “WTH?!?!"—i.e., “What the hell?!?!”—and imploring the network to "Talk about THE BIGGEST CRIM IN HISTORY! 2020 ELECTION FRAUD."
“I didn’t coach them,” Lindell wanted The Daily Beast to know. A Fox News spokesperson did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment. Notably, despite the demonstration, Lindell’s company continues to advertise across Fox platforms, pushing products like bedsheets and his signature pillow.
Last Friday, Lindell alluded to an upcoming protest at 1211 Avenue of the Americas. “We are going to do something out in front of Fox News, I think we should have—you know, if people want to go down there, maybe we should give out Frank Speech signs,” he said at the time.
No media turned out to cover the poorly publicized last-minute confab, though Lindell at one point urged The Daily Beast to send these “evil” D.C.-based reporters to cover it in-person. But Lindell didn’t even attend his own rally—despite past promises. Instead, he said, he was busy traversing the U.S. to allegedly persuade state attorneys general to co-sign his unhinged election-fraud complaint to the Supreme Court.
Takers, it appears, have been hard to come by.
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.Mike Lindell
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.
He laid blame for his failure to gain an audience with the high court squarely on Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel, suggesting a conspiracy to shut him out and calling her “worse than Fox now!”
While Lindell insisted that unnamed “state AGs” will take on the litigation, the pillow exec has yet to publicly identify any prosecutors, states, or even interested parties. In multiple texts on Wednesday, Lindell actually suggested the project is now out of his hands and entirely with the unidentified state attorneys.
“I am not the ones [sic] doing the complaint,” he wrote. “They are.”

Tyson Fury admits he ‘continues to battle on a daily basis’ with mental health as he shares inspiring message with fans
The Gypsy King was struck down with depression after dethroning Wladimir Klitschko six years ago and went into a booze and drug-fuelled downward spiral.4Tyson Fury reached the pinnacle of the sport in 2016 when he became unified heavyweight championCredit: Getty 4But the Gypsy King was soon overcome with depression after dethroning Wladimir Klitschko 4And he's bravely admitted he still struggles with his mental health to this dayCredit: TWITTER@TYSON_FURY
Fury, 33, managed to pull himself out of the depths of depression with the help of his loved ones, although he admits he still battles with his demons every day.
In a heartfelt video reflecting on the anniversary of his dethroning of Klitschko, the Wythenshawe warrior said: "Happy anniversary to me.
"Six years ago today, The Gypsy King was born. I beat Wladimir Klitschko and became the unified heavyweight champion of the world.
"Soon after, I came down with mental health struggles.
"So no one is ever, ever, ever safe from mental health [struggle].

"I had a long, long, long, hard battle and I continue to have a long hard battle on a daily basis."
Fan favourite Fury then sent a message of support to his followers going through their own struggles.
He continued: "So to anyone who is struggling out there today, this is your day.
"Be positive, be strong; never give up and always keep fighting.
"All the best to everybody. God bless, happy Sunday, all the best."
Fury recently teamed up with British boxing legend Frank Bruno to help smash the stigma around men opening up on their personal battles.YOU'RE NOT ALONE
EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.
It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society - from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.
Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.
That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.
The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.
Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others... You're Not Alone.
If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:
- CALM, www.thecalmzone.net, 0800 585 858
- Heads Together, www.headstogether.org.uk
- Mind, www.mind.org.uk, 0300 123 3393
- Papyrus, www.papyrus-uk.org, 0800 068 41 41
- Samaritans, www.samaritans.org, 116 123
He said: “I feel like now a lot more people are coming out with mental health stuff.
"And it's smashing the stigma for mental health but the more people talk about it the more it will overcome all that.”
Fury is currently targeting a spring return to the ring following his sensational knockout of bitter rival Deontay Wilder last month.
He recently told IFL: “I thought I was going to be fighting Dillian Whyte but I don’t know what he has going on in his private life with the WBC.
“He has a court case going on and it’s kind of s***** because I know how long arbitrations can take because my own one with Deontay Wilder took 18 months.
“I hope he does not get caught in the long grass and I hope I don’t get forced into another fight like a voluntary defence.4
“But I don’t care because they are all just work-outs for me, I will destroy them all like I have done all my life.
“It does not matter if it is Dillian Whyte, Dillian Blue or Dillian Grey.
"I am not interested in waiting around for other people, I will be fighting again in February, early March latest, defending my WBC heavyweight world title."
