It is possible that the MyPillow guy was just selling his pillows door-to-door. However, we assume Donald Trump has enough pillows in the Lincoln Bedroom to turn CEO Mike Lindell away. Maybe, Lindell was presenting the Trumps with a fine going away present for Mar-a-Lago. On the other hand, he might have been involved in something quite diabolical. Can you not imagine him twisting the end of his mustache as the villain Snidely Whiplash does in the Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties segments of the 1950s-1960s animated television series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show?
The MyPillow CEO said that the chain Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s will no longer carry his products. This after Lindell claimed repeatedly and wrongly that Donald Trump won the 2020 election. He claimed that widespread voter fraud was the reason.
News cameras caught the MyPillow man trying to conceal his notes as he left the White House days ago. Part of the copy that was visible read “martial law if necessary.” The retailers threatening to block him was a direct result of Lindell’s argument for a Trump win and the January 6 Insurrection that Trump planned and implemented.
The president’s followers on the internet have been urging other Trump acolytes to boycott any retailer that dropped Lindell’s products. Others called for major corporations, such as Walmart, to “not purchase MyPillow products.”
In a Monday interview with Right Side Broadcasting Network, Lindell said, according to CNBC:
‘I just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. They’re dropping MyPillow. Just got off the phone — not five minutes ago. Kohl’s, all these different places…These guys don’t understand. They’re scared. Like a Bed Bath & Beyond, they’re scared. They were good partners. In fact, I told them, “You guys come back anytime you want.”‘
Now, why would people want to boycott MyPillow? It probably had something to do with Lindell’s wild conspiracy theories that he willingly and frequently shared far and wide. CNBC noted that he was also “promoting a fake cure for Covid.”
The Dominion Voting Systems company sent Lindell a cease and desist letter warning that it was suing Lindell for spreading fraud about the company’s machines, according to The New York Times.
Walmart stopped all of its donations to Republicans in Congress who “opposed certifying” President-elect Joe Biden’s and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ win:
‘The country’s largest retailer recently halted donations from its political action committee to the campaigns of congressional Republicans who opposed certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.’
‘Lindell created his MyPillow empire from scratch in 2004, while struggling with a cocaine addiction.’
The CNBC staff did a website search Tuesday morning and found that both Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s were still carrying MyPillow merchandise. It is also sold at “J.C. Penney, Amazon, Belk,” and other large retailers.
