Mike Lindell Goes Nuts After His Banks Give Him Back His Money and Tell Him to Shove It

Trump-supporting My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell has such a bad reputation that even his bank doesn’t want anything to do with him. And during an appearance on (once again) indicted Steve Bannon’s podcast Lindell had plenty of spleen to vent, revealing that his bank recently contacted him and asked him to close his accounts because they worry their connection with him will cause “reputational damage,” Newsweek reports.

Wow. Now that is something, isn’t it? I’ve never heard of that happening before.

But Raw Story reports that during Bannon’s podcast, Lindell played a recording that he claimed comes from a bank official at Heartland Financial and Minnesota Bank and Trust. Reportedly the bank official gave him 30 days to close his accounts and take his money elsewhere. Of course, it probably doesn’t help that Lindell is still facing that billion-dollar defamation lawsuit filed against him by Dominion Voting Systems, now does it?

In the recording, someone can be heard telling Lindell the bank is worried the FBI may subpoena his bank records and no longer wants to be associated with him. The person notes that any link to him is “…more of a reputation risk.”

So Lindell, rabid Donald Trump supporter that he is, got feisty, telling Bannon the bank is going to have to kick him out because nope, he’s not leaving.

“I said, I am not being part of this. I’m not leaving,” he told listeners. “So you’re going to have to throw me out of your bank.”

Then, according to Newsweek, Bannon “put the phone numbers and contact information of top officials at the institutions onscreen — urging supporters to call and complain.”

Kinda seems like Lindell should spend more time worrying about that lawsuit, doesn’t it? While he may have founded a successful company, and is a major QAnon fan, he’s apparently living in some alternate reality than the rest of us.
