Jimmy Kimmel’s Train Wreck Interview with MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell
ABCWell, it actually happened. The day America has been eagerly awaiting since Mike Lindell accepted Jimmy Kimmel’s invitation during his bizarre livestream event finally arrived on Wednesday, and there the MyPillow CEO was in the flesh across from his supposed late-night Nemesis. “Somehow a simple pillow seller from Minnesota got to the bottom of the deepest conspiracy in the history of American politics,” said Kimmel at the beginning of his monologue. “It’s so crazy it’s almost hard to believe.” While the real Lindell was probably watching backstage, the presenter was visited by his personal MyPillow guy, comedian James Adomian, hobbling on stage with a “Who Farted?” Tank top and raced into a racial panic when he saw Guillermo sitting backstage. The actual interview, preceded by an actual MyPillow commercial on the New York show, began with a montage of Lindell’s most outrageous abuse of what he still seems to believe was a stolen presidential election. When Kimmel asked his guest if he had been vaccinated, Lindell said no, which explains why they weren’t together in a pillow-filled bed as promised. “I wanted rabies,” joked Kimmel. Kimmel suggested that Lindell has a lot in common with Hunter Biden, given their mutual addiction to cocaine, and asked him directly about the source of his “paranoia” and the fact that he has apparently “been in hiding” for several months. From Mike Lindell to Elon Musk: Who Deserves a Late Night TV Platform? “Right, I worked hard on this choice and the machines,” Lindell said vaguely. After getting some of his basic biographies out of the way, Lindell admitted he knew nothing about politics until he met Donald Trump in 2016. “Some would say you still don’t, Mike, to be honest,” Kimmel replied. He later said to Lindell, “A lot of people didn’t want you to come on the show. Liberals and Conservatives, they all said, told me you weren’t on the show and they told you don’t go on the show. But I think it’s important that we talk to each other. “Kimmel added,” I don’t think any of what you say is valid. And I’ve studied you, I really have. And while he finds a lot of fun, the host said, “Many of these ideas that you advocate could possibly draw a line between the ones and the insurrection we had in the Capitol where people were killed and many bad things. Without missing a beat, Lindell distanced himself from the riots and continued to rail against “the machines” and Dominion Voting Systems, who are currently suing him for more than $ 1 billion in damages for his unsubstantiated smear campaign. Then the two men got into a back and forth of accusations before Kimmel stepped back: “Do you ever find it strange, objectively, to look at yourself, to walk, why is it the only person in the country? Who has this evidence, is a guy who sells pillows over cables? “Asked Kimmel. Jimmy Kimmel goes on Tucker Carlson’s “child abuse” anti-mask. RantLindell couldn’t quite answer this question, showed no signs of self-esteem, and asked Kimmel to express something that seemed genuinely concerned. “I’m worried about you,” he said. “I have a feeling that you may be self-destructive, that you have repeatedly lost everything in your life.” At the end of the interview, after Lindell refused to urge Trump to “impose martial law if necessary,” claiming he never meant it. For his $ 50,000 donation to Lin Wood’s Legal Fund to Save Kenosha Shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, Adomian returned to challenge his doppelganger to a pillow fight at the Minnesota State Fair The Joke and Laugh with the two comedians when Kimmel went commercial.
