Hey MyPillow guy, it’s your fault your company’s in trouble

Jul 14, 2023

Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow and a vocal supporter of former President Trump, announced his company is auctioning off over 700 pieces of company equipment, ranging from forklifts to office desks and cubicles. According to Lindell, MyPillow has lost $100 million in sales after more than a dozen large retailers, including Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s, stopped carrying MyPillow products in their stores.

Lindell blames “cancel culture” for the sharp drop in sales but Straight Arrow News contributor Rashad Richey explains why Lindell, and Lindell alone, is to blame for his company’s overall problems.

He offered to pay $5 million to anyone who could prove a store of computer data he had acquired was not in fact 2020 election data. But after a computer expert quickly proved the data was bogus, Lindell refused to pay, which led to an arbitration. And that arbitration panel ordered Michael Lindell to pay $5 million.

That is one of the greatest unforced errors in the history of litigation. And then Lindell also faces a $1.3 billion lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems, which alleges that the MyPillow chief executive officer falsely accused the company of rigging the 2020 presidential election. 

Mike, the reason you’re going broke, sir, is because of Donald Trump — and your damn self.

Okay, here we go again, another Republican blaming everybody else but himself for his own downfall, Mike Lyndale.  And my pillow guy is having a dumpster sale. No, not because his merchandise is trash. But according to him, it is because of Kancil culture. 

 

Now, let me remind you that Mike Lyndale, for many years now, has launched a campaign that said the election was stolen from Donald Trump. Maybe he authentically believes that the election was stolen from Donald Trump. But he engaged in inappropriate let’s just say proclamations, commentary, and also allegations. 

 

Isn’t that ironic that the same individuals who used to one say things like, you need to pull yourself up by your bootstraps, you should allow the consumer to determine the market. And if you have a business and your business fails, it is on you. Not anybody else. 

 

But all of a sudden, they are changing their tune. Well, let’s talk about Mike Lyndale. Mike Lyndale, a former crack addict. Yep, Mike Lyndale. used to smoke crack. He talked about it openly for those who are fascinated with crack outside of just Hunter Biden. 

 

That is a side note for the story. He has said the reason he’s failing is because of woke culture and canceled culture. This canceled culture has shut down his operation to the tune of over $100 million. He says he lost 100 million in revenue due to big retailers halting their sales of the company’s products. Well, those big retailers, Mike, they are private company, sir. 

 

Those private companies, they were responding to you to what you said on the record. I do find it ironic that leaders will offer a comment or commentary for the public, and not what the public response is. Anytime you say anything publicly, you’re guaranteed, one of three things will happen. 

 

Number one, people won’t care. Number two, they will care and not like it. Number three, they will care and like it. That’s it. 

 

It will either be praised or criticized whenever you offer the public, or just people say I don’t care one way or the other. That’s how it works. But let’s go down the list here. 

 

One thing he did, ill advised obviously was he told a person or he told people listen, if you can prove if you can prove that what I’m saying is incorrect. I’ll give you $5 million. 

 

So let me go to this one. He offered to pay $5 million to anyone who could prove a store of computer data. He had a quiet was not in fact 2020 election data but after a computer expert quickly proved the data was bogus that they refuse to pay, which led to an arbitration. And that arbitration panel ordered Michael and Dale to pay $5 million.

 

That is one of the greatest unforced errors in the history of litigation. And then Lyndale also faces a $1.3 billion lawsuit filed by Dominion voting systems, which alleges that the my pillow Chief Executive Officer falsely accused the company of rigging the 2020 presidential election. 

Mike, the reason you’re going broke sir, is because of Donald Trump and your damn self
