One would think that Donald Trump would have told his toadies that large companies will sue when their profits are threatened. Trump supporter Mike Lindell, the founder of My Pillow who discussed a military takeover of the 2020 election to keep Trump in office, is finding out that his conspiracy theories about Dominion, a company that makes vote tabulating machines, will now be used against him in court to the tune of a $1.3 billion dollar lawsuit.

On Tuesday, Lindell’s attempt to convince the court to toss out Dominion’s lawsuit against him – similar lawsuits have been filed against other Trump lawyers like Sydney Powell and state media outlet, Fox News – was denied. The case followed a denial in trial court that would have allowed for the case to be tossed; Lindell appealed and was denied once again.

The judge in Lindell’s new case pointed out in his decision that the pillow magnate knowingly made false statements to increase his profits. U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols, appointed by Donald Trump, wrote, according to Law and Crime:

‘Dominion has alleged numerous instances in which Lindell told audiences to purchase MyPillow products after making his claims of election fraud and providing MyPillow promotional codes related to those theories. In totality, it has adequately alleged that Lindell made his claims knowing that they were false or with reckless disregard for the truth.’

Twitter commenters determined that the lawsuit couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy. Read some of their comments below:
