Twitter users are responding in masse after MyPillow CEO and perpetual election litigator Mike Lindell said he is considering a run for Republican National Committee chair and mulled a bid to challenge current chair Ronna McDaniel as she seeks reelection in January.
Lindell, a staunch supporter of former President Trump and his false claims of 2020 election fraud, made the case for a run for RNC leadership on his Frank Speech TV platform.
“One of the things I will tell you, you know, [we] will never ever stop to get rid of these machines and make this the best elections in world history in our country. We need someone everybody, and I’ll step into that, if God-willing,” the conspiracy theorist said.
He also urged viewers to email him if they support him running for the position, adding he wants to hear “anything negative” about it too.
McDaniel announced earlier this month that she plans to seek another term as RNC Chair. She has held the position since 2017 and received endorsements from a majority of RNC voting members last week.
Lindell, who blames McDaniel for his failure to file an election fraud case with the Supreme Court, told the Huffington Post: “Everyone I’ve talked to of these state chairs, they need new leadership,” he said. “I don’t know if this is a paid position, nor do I care. I want to help save our country.”
Naturally, Twitter users had a lot to say about Lindell’s potential future with the RNC and joked that the Republican Party could become the “Pillow Party.”
Watch Lindell’s remarks and some of the reactions below.

Ok so I am a Republican at hart. I love my guns and wile I am not rich I will help my neighbors. I don’t believe in abortion but it isn’t any of my business if you do or use it. But there is no way I can support either Trump or the pillow guy. 🤤

Too good to be true. Can you imagine the endless comedy? Someone should write this series. It would be an instant classic. But what to call it? Pillow Politics? Pillow Party?

The really sad thing is I can actually see this becoming a reality. Not even kidding.

I'll vote for Mike to be RNC chair. Do I vote on a machine or by mail-in (paper) ballot?
Go, Mike! Down with Ronna McD. She's an establishment elite commie.
