MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is not a happy camper right now. That’s because, according to him, FBI agents seized his phone, leaving the pillow connoisseur fuming. All of this reportedly went down at a Hardee’s restaurant. I call it “The great Hardee’s sting operation.”

Lindell was outraged. And quicker than one could say, “you’re in deep shit,” Lindell recorded a video. In said video, he spoke indignantly about the FBI agents and the terrible affront to him. Apparently, now there is someone else weighing in — it’s Hardees themselves.

Hardees is a restaurant chain, in case you don’t know. They’re not everywhere, but they’re quite popular. I’ve seen Hardees with lines around the corners. But apparently, they decided to gin up a little publicity. Because the official Hardees Twitter account had the following to say: “Now that you know we exist…you should really try our pillowy biscuits.”

Whoever was clever enough to think of that deserves a raise — immediately. Twitter users were absolutely delighted. Here are some of the best replies:

“The pillow business isn’t what it used to be.”

“Well played!”

“Shade by Hardees.”

“Fantastic trolling.”

“Arby’s is so jealous right now.”

“Hardees. Where the burgers flip like mark meadows.”

“Mr. Pillow is all sham, no case.”

“I want the treason burger.”

“Hardees is now America’s safest takeout after the FBI started patrolling there.”

“Hardees: it’s not just for insurrectionists.”

“This is such a pillowy case for the FBI.”

“He could do Hardee’s time.”

   

And my favorite: “What goes great with pillowy biscuits? BUTTER EMAILS.” It is not a great week to be Mike Lindell. It appears to be a fantastic week to be Hardees.
