This may be nothing more than a clever trolling exercise, but I’m curious to see what becomes of it.
March for Our Lives co-founder David Hogg tweeted on Thursday that he and software developer William LeGate are launching a pillow company to compete against MyPillow, which is led by Trump supporter CEO Mike Lindell.
Not sure why Hogg decided to go after Lindell, other than the fact that he’s awful and helped spring alleged double murderer Kyle Rittenhouse from jail … before the kid somehow disappeared off the edge of the flat Earth.
Whatever the case, Hogg is going about it the right way:
Key parts of the company
-Union made in America to create good jobs that support American families.
-Have an emphasis on supporting progressive causes
-Not attempt a white supremacist overthrow of the United States government
So you can sleep at night
Bwah ha ha ha ha!
The first two are a pretty tall order for guys like Lindell, whereas the last one is an impossible ask. Lindell is so far down the rabbit hole, I wouldn’t be surprised if he launches a select line of premium rock beds for our reptilian alien overlords to sun themselves on while they conjure up a mess of eggs to lay in our chests.
I mean, the guy could use an extra revenue stream or two. He’s losing pillow distributors almost as fast as the foam stuffing is spilling out of his head.
Anyway, I hope Hogg succeeds—assuming he’s actually serious about this.
What they're saying: MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell told Axios in a text Thursday morning, “Good for them…. nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone's patent.”
Wait, does Lindell actually have a patent? Is it for MyPillow’s special baby-blood-resistant fibers? Because that’s why I’d want one. My wife constantly nags me about snacking in bed.
Good luck, David! Assuming you’re not just fucking with Mike Lindell (and it’s fine if you are, of course). If you are serious, sign me up. I could use some sleep.
