Michael Lindell, the chair of President Donald Trump's reelection campaign in Minnesota and famous as the creator of My Pillow, is demanding a retraction and threatening "legal redress" over CNN host Anderson Cooper's hostile interview of him where they discussed whether Oleandrin was a treatment for COVID-19.

In a letter obtained exclusively by Newsweek, attorney L. Lin Wood—who has sued numerous media outlets on behalf of Nick Sandmann, the teenager maligned for staring at a Native American activist—wrote that Cooper engaged in "the most outrageously unprofessional 'hit piece' interview I have ever viewed."

The attorney adds: "While I am fully aware that Cooper's sarcastic, mocking, derisive, and demeaning tone, attitude and facial expressions toward Mr. Lindell are not legally actionable, I have complete confidence that Cooper's false and defamatory accusations are actionable."
