Mike “Mr. MyPillow” Lindell is upset. Why, you may ask? It’s because Wal-Mart has decided to stop selling Lindell’s products in their stores. Wal-Mart joins other retailers like Kohl’s and JC Penney’s in pulling his products from their stores. (However, Lindell’s products do remain available through Wal-Mart’s website).
Wal-Mart apparently did this because the pillows weren’t rated highly enough to warrant shelf space in retail stores. Of course, now Lindell is ranting about how mean old Wal-Mart is “cancelling” his company and how they’re out to get him because (get your barf bags ready) he backed the “great president Donald Trump.” Complete with a bullshit story about how a smirking Wal-Mart executive told him the company was cancelling MyPillow. He told fellow Branch Trumpvidian Steve Bannon that this will cause a $10 million dollar hit
Maybe if Lindell concentrated on his business instead of carrying water for the Orange F—k Face (OFF) and spouting off reich wing conspiracy theories his business would be doing better. But he’s decided to hitch his pillow wagon to OFF’s rapidly descending star and backed an attempt by OFF to overthrow the lawfully elected government of the United States. Is it any wonder that people don’t want anything to do with him or his company?
Phyllis Schlafly’s nephew Tom – one of the owners of the Schlafly Brewing Company – once said even though he’s a Democrat he tried to avoid mixing his business and politics because he didn’t want to alienate half his customers. Clearly coup supporter Lindell never learned that lesson, and now his business is suffering as a result. He has no one to blame but himself and the enablers in his family for his business woes.
