Mike Lindell is a great American patriot that not only has risen like a phoenix, building a massive, hugely successful company after hitting the deepest depths of addiction, but has also been willing to put it all on the line in his fight for conservative values and voter security.
His fight for those things, particularly the security of the vote, has meant that he has been deplatformed, debanked, and ridiculed by the leftist hacks in the mainstream media.
Still, he has kept fighting and has kept his wits about him. Plus, like Trump, he has a tendency to counter-punch twice as hard when attacked.
That fighting spirit of his, particularly when dealing with the anti-American press corps, was emphasized at CPAC. Mike, when confronted by CBS News’ Robert Costa, didn’t back down.
Rather, he called him a traitor and got the crowd to join in, booing and humiliating the MSM hack. Watch that here:

As you can hear in the video, Mike says “Robert Costa is a traitor to the United States of America.”
Then, continuing his anti-Costa diatribe, he says “Why do you protect a company called the media and attack a company called My Pillow? You’re disgusting.”
At that point the crowd starts chanting “Traitor! Traitor! Traitor!” and Lindell joined the chant, also saying “Traitor! Traitor! Traitor! Traitor!”
Finishing his attack on the media figure, Lindell says “You’re disgusting. You’re one step above Fauci.”
While the crowd was amused with the spectacle, as can be seen by the smiling faces and obvious enthusiasm in the video, Costa was decidedly less so.
He took to Twitter to clutch his pearls and try and make Mike look bad after the interaction, saying:
“Today at CPAC, @CBSNews asked Lindell several times to share the name of the lawyers. He says a “whole bunch of lawyers” gave him the documents, but grew irritated when asked to name them. Eventually he started to chant “traitor!” at me for asking questions.”
Following that up in a second tweet, Costa said:
This is how my exchange today with Lindell ended. Calmly asked him to provide names of lawyers, the lawyers who he says provided him with papers that included the mention of “martial law.” Papers he carried into a meeting with Trump.
Here are those tweets, part of a larger thread in which he tries to take down Mike:

While Costa wasn’t a huge fan of the interaction, conservatives were. Beyond those who joined in the chant, the conservatives remaining on Twitter got involved.
Congressional candidate Josh Barnett, for example, said “Mike knows what’s up #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder“

Still, while Lindell’s bashing of the MSM reporter as a traitor was great, it wasn’t his best work.
That honor is reserved for his convincing the Daily Beast, a leftist outlet, that he was planning to airdrop thousands of MyPillows to Canadians, a story they bought hook, line, and sinker and then made fools of themselves reporting on.
