Is Mike Lindell, the founder and CEO of My Pillow, speaking at the Republican National Convention this week? A popular meme that was circulating before the convention indicated that he was a featured speaker, but he’s not on the main speaker list. He spoke during the roll call vote, but he wasn’t expected to have a primetime speaking spot.

Despite a viral meme claiming that the “My Pillow Guy” was going to be a featured speaker at the RNC, Lindell is not on any list of key RNC speakers. The meme that had gone viral made fun of possible speakers at the RNC. Here is what it looked like:

While some of the people in the meme are indeed speaking at the convention, not all of them are. Dr. Stella Immanuel is also not on the speaking schedule, for example. Of course, the convention’s schedule could be fluid and subject to change. President Donald Trump is speaking every day, but exactly when wasn’t shared ahead of time, for example. So it’s possible that additional names will be added to the speakers’ list.

KWLM reported that Lindell was not listed as a political speaker for the convention (and, in fact, no Minnesota political leader is a key speaker at the RNC.) However, as the Minnesota chair for the Trump campaign, he was annoucning the Minnesota delegate votes during roll call, but that was his only anticipated role.

Here’s the moment when he spoke during the roll call vote.
