‘Oh, I let it slip out!’ Mike Lindell ‘bashes’ Marjorie Taylor Greene while praising Matt Gaetz

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s unabashed support of former President Donald Trump had corporate media quick to call out a supposed schism on the right after the businessman voiced his surprise over a broken promise from a particular congresswoman he joked he wouldn’t name.

“Oh, I let it slip out.”

 

Earlier this week, as the House of Representatives was holding their 11th of what would ultimately become 15 ballots to elect Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) speaker, Lindell joined podcasters from Badlands Media Jon Herold, Chris Paul and CannCon to offer his take on the holdouts and backers. As the potential of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) nominating Trump for the position remained only a rumor, Lindell contended, “Matt Gaetz is not going to break his promise,” before calling out Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Swiftly following that statement, the entrepreneur continued, “I’m very surprised that the one, I won’t name her, but it’s Marjorie Taylor Greene, she broke her promise.”

“Oh I did name her name,” he continued after the hosts laughed at the delivery. “Oh, I let it slip out. Now the media can say ‘Mike Lindell bashes Marjorie Taylor Greene!'”

Sure enough, Paul shared a screenshot from Mediaite’s coverage of the exchange that read, “Lindell appeared on a podcast published on Telegram Thursday during which he spoke with several far-right activists, including a Gateway Pundit writer, and during the half-hour interview he singled out Rep. Matt Gaetz’s resistance to McCarthy as laudable, and MTG’s endorsement as decidedly not.”

The post went on to accuse Lindell of throwing Greene “under the bus,” but Paul was evidently more amused at being labeled a far-right activist captioning his Truth Social post, “This made my day.”

However it was framed, Lindell went on to state, “You know, I just think that she, I mean, it’s her choice. But obviously, she was promised something. And I don’t know if that promise helps the people, you know what I mean?”

For her part, the Georgia congresswoman, who had been stripped of her committee positions under former speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), had said in the earlier rounds of voting that some of the holdouts were vying for positions during negotiations, but she had done nothing of the sort.

“I want to let you that I have not done that for myself,” she said in a statement. “The only thing that I’ve done is debate and request and argue among my peers for the right things for the rules package and for our agenda for the American people. And that’s the only thing I’ve done. I haven’t asked for one thing for myself. And I’m the only Republican who has zero committees, so you would think that I’d be the one in there asking for something. But I haven’t done that.”

Greene had also been photographed during the voting process passing her phone to a holdout to speak with a caller listed as “DT,” identified by reports to be Trump.

When asked to comment on calling out Greene, Lindell told the Daily Beast “It’s disappointing anyone that went for McCarthy because we need a different input to get a different output. And that includes Marjorie Taylor Greene.”

The businessman had been promoting the idea that Trump get elected as speaker, which the podcast cheered moments later when Gaetz, who had voted for the president on several ballots, official nominated him during the segment.

Meanwhile, as previously reported, Trump had continually showed his support for McCarthy throughout the process and the congressman took a moment to thank the president when speaking with the press early Saturday morning.

“He would call me and he would call others. And he really was–I was just talking to him tonight–helping get those final votes,” McCarthy said. “And what he’s really saying really for the party and the country, that we have to come together. We have to focus on the economy. We’ve got to focus, make our border secure. We’ve got to do so much work to do, and he was a great influence to make that all happen. So, thank you, President Trump.”
