Seems the people with money on the line knew damned well it was all bs and they didn't want to gamble on conspiracy theories and lies.. but someone decided to keep jeanine and others on the air spouting nonsense. Now it seems they're going to all be sued out of existence. (One can only hope, anyways.)

The Pillow Guy effed up.

He had a great thing going----then took the Trump Kool-Aid.

mike lindell aka mike pillow, CEO of "my pillow."

The ex-crackhead turned religious fanatical trump cultist who sells pillows on infomercials that air on faux news/oan etc.

He's amassed a fortune of something like $330M USD selling pillows to suckers that watch his commercials in between alex jones conspiracy theories.

He got duped by some weird christian cult-like organization known as "the family," into using his money to support trump. He's the guy that paid the "code ninjas," to do audits of the election results and financed a "cyber symposium," where he was going to have all the best hackers display all the fraudulent election data and then just ran a bunch of gobbledeygook on screens for a day.

When the dust settles, I expect that Dominion Voting Machines will be the new owner of my pillow and mike lindell will be back to flat broke. They have a Billion dollar lawsuit filed against him and the rest of the clowns that spouted off over and over saying that the voting machine company rigged the election against trumplestiltskin. Meanwhile, in objective reality, Biden simply got more votes that trumpty dumpty. Guess mikey figured all this 15 minutes of fame was worth his $330M.

Originally he was just another "As Seen on TV" entrepreneur plugging his supposedly revolutionary pillows. You could see his ads all over the cable dial late at night, not just on political shows.

But yes...later he became a Trump ally, and promoter of the Big Lie.

Wow, thanks.

I've never heard of him, or any of that.

How the heck do you sell a pillow on TV? :scratch:

But, I won't derail any more.

Carry on!

In the US "as seen on TV" products are a thing unto themselves. Have been since the 70s.

You see the ad, or long infomercial, on late night TV....pick up the phone, and your credit card, and order the thing directly ....for 19.99...but WAIT....for a little more you also get....

The Clapper, Pocket Fisher, "Girls Gone Wild" Videos, Chia Pets,....

(In all fairness back when I was a party DJ I actually bought some great CD packages of then current club music, and current top 40 pop, off the tube that way...that became vital tools in my trade...like the "Dance Mix USA" series, and "Totally 80s". )

Anyhow...Mike Lindel was a recent star in that long line of direct to the consumer marketers on TV a few years ago, before getting involved with Trump.

Commercials..

This is my pillow. It’s for sale. It’s on sale! Call this 800 number or go online Now and use discount code “thanks, sucker!” and you can order them for $29.95 each!

Same for the other crap he hawks. Recently I saw he’s selling slippers, slides, and flip flops for about $30 a pair.

My best guess is that his trumpism has resulted in his customer base shrinking vs growing, so he has to sell more different crap to the same customer base to keep revenues and cash flow up - which he’s going to need to pay legal fees.

I can't remember seeing any of his commercials, but I've heard of him. (I don't own a television.)

As far as Fox News going down, I see that fairly unlikely.

Back in 2017 no one associated Mike Lindel with partisan politics. He was just another as-seen-on-TV huckster.
And as luck would have it he pedaled his "My Pillow" pillow at the same time the someone else was plugging the "Miracle Bamboo" pillow on TV.

So...here are the two rival pillows of 2017...in a head to head smackdown!

These are MY pillows.
They're sold at Bed Bath & Beyond.
I have six of them here.
My partner bought me four of them at his.

They cost a fortune, around $110 + tax + shipping for king sized (1).
If you know anything about my sleep disorders and sensory issues, you'll understand.
I absolutely need them.
I'm not a side sleeper, but they're the only ones that work for me.

They last for years.
They're a major investment but one that is absolutely necessary.

I’m almost 40 and never bought a pillow in my life. All were gifted to me many moons ago. One I inherited from my grandmother’s house lol. I suppose maybe one day I’ll have to buy new ones.. but for now, they get washed and dried and continue to get used - for free! (My favourite price for anything.)
