My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell got one of the biggest embarrassments on camera after a prank caller made him believe he was talking to former US President Donald Trump.
Mike was holding a 48-hour telethon dubbed Frank-a-thon to promote his new social media platform called Frank.
He got information that his idol Trump had called to show his support for the show, and he excitedly received the call with a smile on his face.
"Breaking news here, with a guest... Hello!" Mike said as he invited the guest.
He started bragging that he had the president on call and even invited him to speak.
"Hello everyone," the prankster said.
"We have the president here, the real president everyone, hello mr president," Mike said.
The prankster immediately said "Not close" while giving details about a website alongside insults as Mike realised it was a prank call and quickly hang up.
He began claiming they were being attacked as his face showed just how disgusted and dumbfounded he was.
He also fell for a second prank call later on in the show from someone who claimed he was a reporter and wanted to share some bad news.
The businessman is famous for claiming the Dominion Voting Systems helped Joe Biden to rig the US elections and is currently facing a lawsuit.
In other Donald Trump news, Briefly News recently reported that he was working with an unpopular social media app called FreeSpace to launch his own social media network.
On Wednesday, March 24, Axios reported that Trump was in talks with the little known social media app, which is an affiliate of Skylab Apps and has just 20,000 downloads.
FreeSpace said its app is backed by science that makes people addicted to doing good, built on the power of positivity, and wants to make social media fun again.
Trump was banned by Twitter on January 8, two days after the riot and violent attacks on the United States Congress, severing his access to his nearly 90 million followers.
Facebook followed the next day, cutting the former president's ties with another 33 million followers.
