To be totally frank, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has had some problems launching his social network Frank ― including being pranked by Donald Trump impersonators.
The website launch has been notoriously glitchy, according to Newsweek, with lots of crashes and people unable to get to the home page.
That hasn’t stopped Lindell from hosting what is being billed as a 48-hour “FRANK-a-thon,” and it hasn’t stopped him from getting trolled, according to Salon’s Zachary Petrizzo.
One caller got through by claiming to be Trump ― a very foul-mouthed Trump.
“Hello everyone,” the fake Trump said.

Lindell, who bent his body over the speaker where the voice was emanating, got excited.
“Aw, we have the president here ― our real president everyone,” Lindell exclaimed. “Hello, Mr. President!”

Sadly for Lindell, the person claiming to be the president didn’t respond in kind.
“MacronShow.com, bitches! MacronShow.com!”
"God I love the internet," one Twitter user said after the prankster called the MyPillow CEO. https://t.co/YIDyEZdXWQ— HuffPost (@HuffPost) April 19, 2021
Lindell is facing a $1.3 billion lawsuit over spreading falsehoods about election security in 2020.
The prank call may have been short, but many Twitter users found it very satisfying.
