MyPillow CEO and Donald Trump sycophant Mike Lindell claimed this week that he was physically “attacked” at his hotel and blame Dominion Voting Systems and Antifa for having to use bodyguards. Lindell made the claim during his disastrous “cyber symposium” event where he hoped to prove 2020 presidential election fraud.
However, his claim of being attacked fell apart after he admitted that the person who reportedly attacked him was just a well-wisher who wanted to take a selfie with him.
The Associated Press reported late Friday that Lindell admitted he had been “aggressively poked by someone seeking a selfie in Sioux Falls, South Dakota,” which led to a flood of jokes about the TV pitchman hyping up the drama.

That was me. I gave him the vaccine. Sorry guys. My bad.

He literally got up on stage the next day and said "it still hurts a little bit" while sounding like he was still fighting through the pain over someone poking him when trying to get a selfie the day before.

That's the attack? I mean, don't touch people, but that's what he was in near tears over?

Can we get him some kind of a medal? Maybe some VA benefits?
