#TheResistance Media Mocks ‘My Pillow Guy’ Who’s Trying To Save Lives By Producing Masks, CNN Cuts Away
What have CNN and MSNBC done to save lives? “Lindell said it took MyPillow workers three days to turn over a 200,000-square-foot factory into a facility to produce the masks. They are currently making about 10,000 a day and aim to produce up to 50,000 a day.”
During Trump’s Coronavirus press conference on Monday, he invited some people from private industry to speak, including Mike Lindell, the owner of My Pillow.
CNN decided to cut away from the event when Lindell spoke.
Lindell was not there to sell pillows. Trump invited him to speak because he has restructured his company in order to manufacture face masks for hospitals. In other words, he is doing far more for the country than anyone at CNN or any other media outlet.
Smug critics couldn’t even be bothered to use Lindell’s name, opting instead to call him the “My Pillow guy.”
MSNBC’s Ali Velshi:
Trump just called the “My Pillow” guy up to the podium in the Rose Garden. You cannot make this stuff up.

And what exactly are you doing to help? I don’t care who it is making masks. He’s helping someone.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid:
So my Tiger King binge was interrupted by a text saying the CEO of MyPillow is now part of the presidential briefings on COVID19 … please tell me this is a prank.

Never-Trumper Tom Nichols:

Lindell is making a very important contribution. Julia Musto reported at FOX News:
Mike Lindell says MyPillow making masks to fight COVID-19, calls on other manufacturers to help
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said Friday that he decided to start making face masks to aid in the fight against the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) because his passion has always been to help others.
Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Ed Henry, Lindell said that he couldn’t think of a better time to do so.
“We started then to find out what we could make,” he said. “We worked with the administration. They have a coalition to what kind of masks are need out there. Obviously, we specialize in cotton and we found out different materials that they didn’t want — latex…and stuff. So, finally, we got the final prototype three days ago.”
Lindell said it took MyPillow workers three days to turn over a 200,000-square-foot factory into a facility to produce the masks. They are currently making about 10,000 a day and aim to produce up to 50,000 a day.
Even MSNBC carried Lindell’s remarks, which you can watch below:

Greg Gutfeld of FOX News had some choice responses for the critics:
Hey goofy My Pillow guy is making 50 thousand masks while this douche adds nothing to the world but his own self satisfied finger sniffing https://t.co/iHrC7Vnk7k

When you start producing 50 thousand masks a day you can go up to the podium too In the meantime sit on your fence and keep your thumb up your ass. https://t.co/RWO6chxPXQ

This crisis has brought out the best in some, the worst in others.

Awesome. I’ve seen his commercials a lot but have never been interested. I’ll be ordering 2 pillows from him tonight.
Yup, I’m ordering 2 pillows from him also! MAGA!
Scratch that. Ordered a 3″ pillowtop mattress cover that comes with 2 pillows.
I’ll bet you’ve seen a whole big lot of them. Not that I dream of holding a My Pillow down on Mike’s head and…, but I literally cut the sound off the TV until the umpteenth same commercial is over. Same for the incessant, not-funny, eternally repeated car insurance commercials.
I’ll take “Missing the Point” for $1,000, Alex.
In the same vein, Samaritan’s Purse have done an incredible thing and set up a field hospital in Central Park. Even our communist mayor has thanked them for it. But the lovely folk at Gothamist are all upset because it’s an organization that still takes its religious mission seriously and recruits volunteers who believe in it.
Ben Shapiro: “If you’re angry at the guy shifting over his factory to produce 50,000 facemasks a day for medical professionals, you’re doing being human wrong.”
Came across a posting that described efforts to include liability protection for mask makers into the various coronavirus bills .. and how Nanci Pelosi’s office made every effort to protect the tort lobby.
Will these acts of goodness outweigh the agony of relentless My Pillow commercials? If they do, it will have been a close contest.
I agree that I could get through life never seeing another My Pillow commercial. However, I find them immensely less objectionable than the relentless “ED” commercials.
I am going to order a couple My Pillows. Mike is a good guy and does a lot of good. Deserves support.
