Lindell may have reserved his harshest criticism for Fox News, however, which is often seen as giving Trump favorable coverage during his presidency.
Lindell said, ‘They were going for everything. They were going to take everything we had. Why do you think Fox declared Arizona with only 14 percent of the vote in? They already knew what they did! They were in on it!’
Fox News controversially called the state of Arizona for Biden days before any other major outlet made the same call.
‘They should all go to prison when they are found out,’ Lindell concluded about Fox News.
Just last week, Lindell appeared on the very network he spent Saturday criticizing, saying ‘I want the word to get out that Donald Trump will be our president for the next four years.’

He also appeared at another Trump rally in Georgia last week, where the HuffPost reports he ranted about overturning the election results and sending people to prison over the Biden victory.
The rally in support of Trump came one day after the Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit filed by Texas that sought to overturn the election results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
Twenty-three people were reportedly arrested over the course of the rally on Saturday.
Trump’s defeat in that lawsuit almost surely marks the beginning of the end of his legal battle to overturn the election results.
Lindell has been one of the most outspoken supporters of Trump in the business community.
He has participated in numerous business events during the Trump administration and attended his inauguration in 2017.
Politico reports Lindell has referred to Trump in the past as the greatest president in American history and ‘chosen by God’ to lead the country.
