The out-of-touch media were not happy “My Pillow” founder Mike Lindell spoke at the White House press briefing.
They attacked Mike and Trump and CNN even cut away from the briefing for a while, but in the end, it was Lindell who was laughing last.
“Given our current business lines, we are experiencing the effects of this pandemic firsthand,” Lindell said.
“We’ve dedicated 75% of my manufacturing to produce cotton face masks.” Not sure why you would mock that sacrifice?
“God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on,” Mie added.
“God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God. I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word. Read our Bible and spend time with our families.”
“I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word, read our Bibles, and spend time with our families,” he continued.
“Our president gave us so much hope where, just a few short months ago, we had the best economy, the lowest unemployment, and wages going up.
“It was amazing. With our great president, vice president, and this administration, the other great people in this country, and praying daily, we will get through this and get back to a place that is stronger and safer than ever,” Mike said.

However, critics from various news outlets mocked Lindell’s appearance at the Rose Garden.
“Trump just called the ‘My Pillow’ guy up to the podium in the Rose Garden. You cannot make this stuff up,” MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi reacted.
“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski tweeted, “Is that the my pillow guy?? Do I need to turn the volume up. I was waiting for the doctors.”
“The ‘My Pillow Guy’ was at the Corona Virus briefing today? Boy oh boy, do we need SNL this Saturday. If this had been a SNL skit we would have thought it was fake, right? You can’t make this s— up. Who is going to play the ‘my pillow guy’?” Miami Herold reporter Julie K. Brown asked.
“Well, imagine my relief that the My Pillow guy is on the job,” NeverTrump commentator Tom Nichols quipped.
“Trump now has the guy from My Pillow doing a campaign commercial for Trump’s 2020 campaign in the middle of a press conference about a deadly virus. How can any real news network air this BS?! #StopAiringTrump” Daily Beast and CNN opinion columnist Dean Obeidallah wrote.
“Look, it’s hard to fill up 90 minutes worth of material every single day, so you need to get some sponsored material/infomercials,” New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait joked.
After saying that My Pillow's factories will be producing 50,000 N95 masks by Friday, Mike Lindell encourages us to read our bibles and spend time with our families.— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) March 30, 2020
