The incident probably didn’t go the way the reporter had hoped.
CBS journalist Robert Costa bombarded the MyPillow CEO with questions about alleged documents pertaining to martial law from the 2020 election.
Costa appeared to be making an attempt to catch Lindell off guard.
Lindell, who is never one to back down, fired back at Costa, calling the CBS journalist a “traitor.”
The crowd quickly responded as well, joining Mike Lindell by chanting “Traitor! Traitor! Traitor!”

Newsweek has more details on the confrontation:
When the journalist pressed him further, Lindell grew frustrated, refusing to say who gave him the documents.
“Robert Costa is a traitor to the United States of America,” Lindell asserted, as a crowd gathered around them. He went on to call Costa “disgusting” and led those surrounding them in chants of, “Traitor! Traitor! Traitor!”
“Why do you protect a company called the media and attack a company called MyPillow? You’re disgusting,” Lindell said.

Mike Lindell totally roasted the reporter and CBS News, calling them “disgusting” and “traitors” to America.
The crowd on CPAC’s media row joined Lindell and started chanting “traitor, traitor, traitor” at the fake news reporter.
America is done with the fake news propaganda.
