- MyPillow CEO and Founder Mike Lindell spoke alongside President Trump at a recent coronavirus press briefing.
- Lindell preached for a moment, saying “a nation had turned its back on God” and encouraged people to read the Bible and spend time with their families.
- Lindell also announced his company would produce medical masks to distribute to hospitals but media pundits largely ignored his philanthropy and instead bashed him.
At a recent press briefing regarding the coronavirus with President Trump, Mike Lindell – founder of the MyPillow company – was called up to the podium.
Lindell Takes Center Stage
During his time speaking, Lindell said:
God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on. 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.
With full furor, mainstream media personalities and pundits wasted no time in beginning to trash Lindell.
SirusXM host Dean Obeidallah called Lindell’s appearanced “BS”…
Norman Ornstein, contributing editor for the Atlantic, called Lindell an “awful human being”…
Miami Herald reporter Julie Brown likened the appearance to an SNL skit…
Jonathan Chait, writer for New York magazine, claimed Lindell was “sponsored”…
MSNBC host Joy Reid pleaded for someone to tell her Lindell’s comments were a prank…
Failed 2020 Republican candidate for president Joe Walsh and Professor Tom Nichols also wrote off Lindell…
What all these verified personalities failed to mention is that Lindell also announced that he was converting his Minnesota MyPillow factory to start production of medical masks.
MyPillow Fighting Coronavirus
Lindell said MyPillow was making 10,000 masks per day and was planning to make up to 50,000 cotton face masks by Friday.
He also specified that the masks produced would be distributed to healthcare workers.
Lindell came from virtually nothing and is even an ex-crack addict. He has made much of the MyPillow brand. To trash him so easily is totally foregoing his redemption and hard work.
To write off his altruistic move of producing medical masks for medical workers during a global pandemic is downright neglectful. Lindell was merely trying to broadcast a message of optimism in such trying times.
Due to the fact they disagreed with his views, a bounty of media personalities collectively went after him and didn’t bother to mention the good he was also doing in a time when we so badly need any good news.
