and anyone else who believes Donald Trump
will be re-elected president of the United States
will most likely have a very bad day on August 13.
According to the MyPillow
CEO-turned-conspiracy-theorist, Friday the 13th, which naturally falls on a Friday, will be the day that all of Trump's false claims about the election being stolen are proven true.
Lindell made the dubious prediction on Worldview Weekend Broadcast Network on Sunday.
“By the morning of August 13th, it will be the talk of the world,” Lindell predicted, imagining people
saying, “‘Hurry up! Let’s get this election pulled down, let’s right the wrong, let’s get these communists out.’”
Lindell refused to speculate on what would happen to those accused of "stealing" an election that had not been stolen.
“Right now, the biggest concern is having this election thrown out,” Lindell said, falsely adding, “Donald Trump won, I mean, it’s pretty simple.”
He also predicted that many senators on the lower ticket would see changes in their vote totals.

Lindell's promise that Trump will return to the White House
may be catnip for those who can't believe an unpopular president could lose an election, but it's based on nothing.
According to experts, “just as sharks
can't grow legs on command and stroll onto land,” the Supreme Court
has no mechanism to overturn a presidential election
Twitter users had their own thoughts, and many of them were concerned that Lindell's false claims would inspire other people who were deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deaf
We already know from polls that a large majority of Republicans
believe insane conspiracy theories like this. It's easy to mock the pillow dude, but are we going to admit that tens of millions of Americans are completely disconnected from reality? That's very dangerous. https://t.co/nB8WaaSqhe

Giving a platform to this lunacy based on lies
is risky because many people still believe it. I wonder what he'll say on August 14 - Mike Lindell to Brannon Howse: Trump Reinstated August 13 https://t.co/xZxaaiO1Ln

Those who believe Lindell's bogus claims are in for a big surprise, according to some.

One person tweeted that August 13 is National Kool-Aid Day (though a Kool-Aid Days festival appears to be held later in August).
Of course, Nostradumbass is wrong... but the fact that Friday, August 13 is LITERALLY National Kool-Aid Day is *chef's kiss* https://t.co/5OAwvwlIv0

And one conservative pundit, speculating on what would happen if President Joe Biden
and Vice President Kamala Harris
“confessed they actually lost,” warned Lindell to be careful what you wish for.
If Biden and Harris throw in the towel and admit defeat, Mike Lindell's brilliant scheme gets us President Pelosi. https://t.co/tBIs9QY03H
