A Newsmax anchor bailed on an interview with the CEO of My Pillow on Tuesday.
The live segment was about cancel culture (Mike Lindell recently had his Twitter account cancelled) but, as Lindell began talking about Dominion voting machines, the anchor, Bob Sellers, pushed back.
“Mike, you’re talking about machines. We at Newsmax have not been able to verify any of those kinds of allegations,” Sellers said. The journalist then read a statement from Newsmax accepting the results of the 2020 election.
As Lindell continued talking about “the machines,” a frustrated Sellers asked his producers to “get out of here, please?” But the guest stayed, and he continued discussing the machines.
Unable to stop Lindell from talking, Sellers then left the set. His co-host, Heather Childers, finished the interview.
Watch the clip below.
