During recent media appearances, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell appeared to be struggling with reality, stating on at least one occasion that the government was trying to assassinate him.
In one interview, Lindell expressed his dissatisfaction with his own forgetfulness, stating that he couldn’t recollect what month or date it was. Lindell has declared for months that Donald Trump would be reinstated as president in August, and has since stated that the almost impossible task will be completed before the end of the year.
“Yeah, yeah, the ‘Absolute Proof,’ let me tell you the key part of that,” Lindell said at one point during a three-day online special broadcast with evangelical pastor Jim Bakker. “This is probably the only time where I had a little fear, and I had to pray, get on my knees, and pray to God. This was 10 days before the impeachment trial. And let me tell you. I’m 10 days before — and remember, at the time that that was like the — towards the end of January, you know, the impeachment trials were Tuesday following, like, the Feb. 8, OK?”
He then returned to a familiar theme, claiming that anti-Trump forces were behind the Jan. 6 Capitol siege. He called it a “big fake insurgency or whatever, that you’re against the government.”
Lindell then stated, for the first time, that he believed the government was attempting to assassinate him.
“And guess who was No. 1 on that list to come and get? Me,” he added, referring to the government. “I’m going, ‘God they’re gonna kill me.’ You know, they’re gonna put me and hang me. And basically [that] is what I’m thinking, and at that moment, he said, You know, I got to put a documentary, just put the evidence out there and make it.”
Lindell appeared disoriented when he chatted to his supporters from an undisclosed location on his Frank Speech website on Monday night. He had to solicit the assistance of an assistant on this occasion, who appeared to be unsure of the correct date and month.
Lindell must soon build a court defense against Dominion Voting Systems and its $1.3 billion civil defamation action against him and several other defendants, but his legal team, which has argued that he is not profiting from his attacks on the firm, may not be helping his cause. He stated on Thursday night that the coupon code “Dominion” will now result in significant savings on MyPillow products.
Last week, the bedding king said that his battle with Dominion Voting Systems was good for business, claiming that he had lately hired another 200 workers.

However, the lawsuit has clearly been bad for business. Lindell is making substantial personal concessions in preparation for a significant court battle, according to records, with Dominion’s $1.3 billion lawsuits hovering over his head.
According to records from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Lindell (via his company MyPillow) recently sold at least one of his own jets. According to FAA records, a 1993 Dassault-Breguet Falcon 50 with the tail number N497SP that was registered to MyPillow was transferred to Clyde Air LLC on July 26 for an undisclosed purchase price. (A 1993 Falcon 50 private jet with a comparable configuration is now on the market for $2.5 million.)
The plane registered to MyPillow was used in a number of Lindell’s schemes leading up to his August “cyber symposium” in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, which was intended to prove his extravagant claims about the 2020 election (but clearly did not), including his alleged efforts to transport and conceal Dominion and Smartmatic voting machines at various locations across the country.
