Oh, no. My Pillow guy Mike Lindell is not sleeping as well as he did when he could slip in and out of the Donald Trump White House. It appears that words and actions do actually have consequences. So what does Linell do?
In a Fox News Tucker Carlson interview, My Pillow CEO blamed “fake people” and a voting machine company for ruining his business. Never mind that his association with the Donald played a major part in that event.
Contributing editor to The Daily Beast Justin Baragona tweeted:
‘Sooooo here’s Mike Lindell on Tucker Carlson’s show saying Dominion “hired hit groups and bots and trolls and went after all my vendors and box stores to cancel me out.”‘

What Linell has not understood is that just like the book’s perfect title Everything Trump Touches Dies (Simon & Schuster) by The Lincoln Project cofounder Rick Wilson, everyone around Trump is eventually tainted and ruined.
Lindell claimed without any proof that his business was under assault by a “coordinated attack of ‘hit groups’ hired by the election vendor Dominion Voting Systems. He said:
‘Dominion went on live TV and said they were going to go after Mike Lindell. Well, they did. They hired hit groups and bots and trolls, went after all my vendors, all these box stores to cancel me out … it’s just a shame. If they can do it to me, Tucker, they can do it to anyone out there.’
My Pillow Guy pops up every evening as those who were shocked into the insomnia of a hundred sleepless nights by Donald Trump watched television. He was one of Fox News’ top advertisers.
All of a sudden, the conspiracy theorist noticed that big chain stores such as Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohls dropped his products like a hot rock.
At the same time, Dominion has suffered targeted attacks from a number of top-level Trump followers. The ex-president and friends accused the business without evidence of taking votes away from the Republicans and handing them to President Joe Biden. Rudy Giuliani was one of those loudest antagonists.
Dominion warned the president’s attorney to knock it off, then had to slap the former New York mayor with a $1.3 billion defamation suit.
Shortly after Twitter permanently banned Trump, they banned Lindell, according to CBS News:
‘Twitter has permanently banned My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell’s account after he continued to perpetuate the baseless claim that Donald Trump won the 2020 U.S. presidential election. Twitter decided to ban Lindell, who founded bedding company My Pillow, due to “repeated violations” of its civic integrity policy, a spokesperson said in a statement.’
Twitter world went nuts when they saw My Pillow guy’s tweet. Take a look at some of our favorite responses below:
