Mike Lindell Claims His Book Is Being Banned Everywhere

Businessman and Trump supporter Mike Lindell claims that his autobiography has been banned from several bookstores and online sites. The MyPillow CEO stood firmly behind Donald Trump after the 2020 election and publicly supported his claim that the election was rigged. This cost him greatly, and he lost several key business relationships with major retailers, including Walmart and Bed, Bath, & Beyond.

Speaking to Steve Bannon on his podcast, Mr. Lindell said his memoir “What are the Odds?” is censored and banned from “every bookstore in the country.” Lindell claimed that Christianbook.com has also barred it. The book details Lindell’s path from crack addiction to finding Jesus, turning his life around, and becoming a millionaire business owner.

Mr. Lindell’s fortunes, however, have taken a turn for the worse since 2020. Following the Presidential election that year, he insisted the election was stolen from Trump and promoted the idea that voting machine companies Smartmatic and Dominion were implicated in the fraud. This got him and his company banned from social media and led to a lawsuit from Dominion – the same company that won a defamation suit against Fox News for repeating the 2020 election fraud claims.

In 2022, his bank pulled the plug on his businesses. The Minnesota Bank & Trust described him as a “reputation risk” and cut ties. Mr. Lindell told media outlets that he had nine accounts with the Minnesota Bank & Trust, yet it “canceled” him because he was “in the news every day.” He described the decision as “evil.”

In February this year, Mr. Lindell complained that Fox News had dropped his company’s ads and blamed it on “cancel culture.” However, the network denied this and said the ads were dropped because Lindell had not paid his bills. A spokesperson stated, “As soon as their account is paid, we would be happy to accept their advertising.” The businessman hit back and claimed Fox dropped his commercials because he hired former Fox host Lou Dobbs.
