Rather than question the legitimacy of Republican losses — as has become standard among a subset of conservatives — MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is questioning their wins, namely Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ win.

Lindell made it clear he didn’t “believe it,” and by it, he means DeSantis’s resounding win in the 2022 midterms.

Lindell is an avid supporter of former President Donald Trump, a believer — and regurgitator — of the lie that the 2020 Presidential was mired with voter fraud and stolen from under Trump.

With loyalty to Trump in full view, it’s only natural for Lindell to come out to criticize DeSantis, Trump’s biggest competitor in a 2024 GOP primary contest.

While Trump has announced his bid for the White House, DeSantis hasn’t even hinted if the rumors he would were true or attempted to dispel them.

But, the possibility of DeSantis beating Trump in a GOP Presidential primary is something many of Trump’s most devout followers fear — especially when their relevancy is so intertwined with the former Presidents.

Lindell told viewers of his streaming show, “The Lindell Report,” he was questioning DeSantis’s large victory in Miami-Dade.

The Miami-Dade County has traditionally supported Democrats but handed DeSantis an 11-point victory over his Democratic counterpart in the 2022 midterms.

Lindell suggested figures like those could point to Voter Fraud, calling it a “deviation,” despite pundits predicting DeSantis’s win in the county before the results.

Lindell tiptoed around the subject, hinting that voter fraud in Miami-Dade propelled DeSantis’s win. Yet, he never explicitly made that assertion, probably a product of being sued for Defamation by Dominion Voting Machines for claims he made about the voting machines they manufactured assisting in 2020 voter fraud.
