Trump fans stream out of Mike Lindell rally as he spoke on 'revival' of Jesus
Videos shared online showed people streaming out of the event as Lindell talked about, 'the greatest revival for Jesus in the history of the world'
At New Richmond, Wisconsin, on Saturday, June 12, founder and CEO of My Pillow, Mike Lindell, held a MAGA rally. Lindell, who is a prominent supporter of former US President Donald Trump, reportedly called the event a “free speech Woodstock,” and added, “You can’t talk about machines, you can’t talk about election fraud, you can’t talk about vaccines... you can’t talk about anything or they cancel you out.”
“I’m the one who paid for this whole rally, I'm the one who put this on. I paid for everything out of my pocket,” Lindell told the Daily Beast. “You asked me what it means? Every single person in this country, Democrats, Republicans, everybody that has been canceled, just people in general, that have been canceled out.”
However, it did happen. As per reports, the rally featured a speech by Trump, in which he railed against voter fraud again. Trump delivered his comments via satellite where he repeated unfounded claims about fraud during the 2020 election and took aim at President Joe Biden's efforts to reverse his policies.
Trump addressed the Biden administration's announcement about pulling more than $2 billion in funding Trump had diverted to pay for a wall along the southern border. "All Biden had to do — all he had to do was leave it alone," Trump said. "So we went from the most successful, the safest border in the history of our country — think of that — to the worst and most dangerous border."
Of course, attendees did not seem to enjoy the event all that much. Or at least not as much once Trump was done talking. Videos shared online showed people streaming out of the event as Lindell talked about, "the greatest revival for Jesus in the history of the world." As per The Daily Beast, most attendees estimated that the crowd numbered about 10,000, less than the 20,000 Lindell had predicted the day before. As Lindell spoke, the crowd that had begun to filter out after Trump’s speech ended had reportedly significantly dissipated. Lindell had previously held a half-empty rally at the Corn Palace in South Dakota.
Lindell’s lack of success at the event became a talking point on social media. “Trump supporters in Wisconsin walk out on Mike Lindell in the middle of his rant,” wrote a Twitter user sharing a video. “Mike Lindell is crying into his MyPillow right now,” wrote another Twitter user. One person said, “No matter how shitty your day was, at least you aren't Mike Lindell.”

“I guess no one wanted to hear Mike Lindell talk about Jesus!” said a Twitter user. “A sparse crowd of Trump supporters head for the exits as Mike Lindell rants incoherently. He was part of the broken-brain trust Trump huddled with in his final days. All of them living outside reality,” said another Twitter user.
