MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said he believes Donald Trump will be reinstated as the president of the United States on August 13th. Umm, what now?
Speaking to Brannon Howse on the conservative WVW Broadcast Network on Sunday, Lindell said that by that date, Trump's reinstatement would "be the talk of the world."
"Donald Trump won," he claimed. "I mean, it's pretty simple, OK?"

He said this with extreme confidence... even though there isn't actually any legal path in which Trump can be reinstated, as per the Insider.
PatriotTakes even shared a clip on Twitter of Lindell's appearance:
Mike Lindell says by August 13, the talk of the world will be to overturn the election and get the communists out. He also said there will be many down ticket senators that will have different election results. pic.twitter.com/clYG1kMTgx

"Hurry up, let's get this election pulled down, let's right the right, let's get these communists out, you know that have taken over," he exclaimed.
Lindell has been a leading voice in spreading the conspiracy theory that fraud was committed during the 2020 Presidential Elections which led to current president Joe Biden's victory. He's even produced documentaries, ran rallies, and created a social media account devoting his time to supporting Trump in any way he can.
He's also created a static webpage dictating himself as the "voice of free speech."
Through these websites, he has argued that he has assembled a legal case so compelling that Supreme Court justices would have to overturn the election. The idea of Trump's reinstatement has been very influential among conspiracy theory followers of Trump such as the lawyer Sidney Powell, and even Trump himself, all people who are adamant that Trump was supposed to win the 2020 elections.
A multibillion-dollar defamation suit was filed against Lindell in February by Dominion Voting Systems, a voting-technology company central to Lindell's conspiracy theories. Lindell countersued, citing the First Amendment.
Unsurprisingly, his announcement that Trump will be moving back into the White House as of August is even unpredictable by his own terms, upping and changing the dates of the former president's return to the presidency rather frequently.
I've been writing these dates in pencil…

"I've been writing these dates in pencil..." one person wrote.
"I mean... They've been moving these dates since last year," another person wrote.
I mean... They've been moving these dates since last year.
