Donald Trump’s grasp on the Republican Party remains firm, but his hold on his daily supporters may be eroding. A two-day rally was organized in Kentucky the same weekend when the former president delivered color commentary at a boxing event and addressed a gathering of the Moonies. My Pillow Guy Mike Lindell, Michael Flynn, and Lin Wood were among the conspiracy theorists who appeared. It was estimated that 10,000 people will attend. Instead, they received less than 300 votes.
The protest was dubbed “We the People Reunion” by Newsweek, and unlike most such events, which normally feature some combination of Lindell, Flynn, and Wood, this one was not free. Tickets ranged in price from $125 to $500 for VIPs.
Journalists were denied away from the event, but similar events have included the now-standard litany of unsubstantiated accusations concerning voter fraud in the 2020 election. As recently as Friday, Trump claimed that current Vice President Joe Biden “cheated.”
This is just another massive failure for Lindell. He convened a “cyber symposium” last month, claiming once again to have conclusive proof that Trump won re-election. He didn’t, and the sham concluded with one of the event’s key presenters admitting he didn’t have any proof. During this time, Lindell received word that the $1.6 billion lawsuit launched against him by Dominion Voting Systems could go on.
