The CEO of “My Pillow” Mike Lindell has been in the news a lot lately, and if you are even so much as a casual observer of what passes for the news in this country then you know there are only two reasons for someone to be the recipient of so much attention; either A) The media wants to fawn all over them (although this type of treatment is typically reserved for ‘celebrities’ such as athletes and entertainers) or B) The media wants to kick them to death, which in this day and age normally means that they are a supporter of Donald Trump, the man who is so abhorrent that he dared to defeat the charity robbing, influence peddling, uranium selling and sniper fire dodging Hillary Clinton in the race for the Presidency, something for which he has not been and doubtlessly never will be forgiven, especially not by our “Orange Man Bad” media that consists of CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, PBS, NP…. well you get the picture.
Not only did Mike Lindell dare to support this President, he (Lindell) went so far as to comfit what many of those on the left consider the unpardonable sin (not that they believe in sin of course) of trying to help America in the country’s time of need rather than let a vast number of people die and countless numbers of citizen’s suffer in order to…you know……make Trump look bad.
Not only is Lindell guilty of these charges, he is also guilty of going public with his support during a COVID19 briefing and actually suggesting that Americans *gasp* PRAY!!! What a horrible, horrible man, lord knows that he cannot possibly be stoned to death soon enough.
Once through peeing themselves in anguish, an angry media began lambasting Lindell’s participation in the Press briefing
The “Washington Post” was evidently not impressed with Lindell’s appearance at the presser
And CNN (never a fan of the President nor anyone supporting him) also chimed in – but they didn’t actually mention Mike Lindell by name
Fox News a somewhat more (but not completely) rational source of news and information remarked upon the media’s treatment of Lindell. Joseph Wulfsohn of Fox authored an article that attempted to clarify Lindell’s appearance at the conference by remarking upon the efforts that he (Lindell) has undertaken to help the country during this crisis by explaining that:
Lindell, who was among several business leaders who spoke at Monday’s presser, announced that his company is aiming to increase its production of cotton face masks from 10,000 to 50,000 per day.
Wulfsohn also presented several examples of the media’s outrage
“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.
The “My Pillow Guy” is the nicest thing the media called Lindell, whereas “Crack head” or as the more moderate media outlets put it “former crackhead” was actually included in the headline of many articles and social media was if anything worse. Lindell has never been one to avoid speaking about his past as an addict, and his recovery to become a very successful businessman, but our media wanted to define him by his previous addition and mock his faith, which they used to rationalize their dismissal of the positive contributions Lindell was making to fight COVID19. One thing you have to credit the media for and that is the fact that they are always prepared to unite the country in times of crisis – just kidding, they totally suck.
As if this treatment of Lindell wasn’t loathsome enough many members of the media who have sought to discredit Lindell by delving into his past drug addiction and by ridiculing his faith have found it within their little hearts to forgive others with a past of drug addiction, as is the case with the media’s treatment of left wing darling Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden is not only defended by the media, he is held up as a symbol of redemption and recovery, and even mentioning the guy’s former drug abuse, along with his somewhat “questionable” past makes you a terrible person who can’t see the redemptive qualities of an individual. An article that appeared in “The USA Today” entitled “Hunter Biden drug use doesn’t make him a loser” made that abundantly clear. The article written by Ryan Hampton attacks Donald Trump (who else) for daring to speak ill of Hunter Biden. The author (Hampton) admonished the President in the following manner:
Trump, as well as some other Republicans, have come down hard on Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Trump has called Hunter Biden a “loser,” signaling people in the president’s orbit that it’s OK to equate addiction struggles with unethical behavior.
Weird how these champions of the downtrodden and redeemed have failed to express outrage at the treatment that it’s own talking heads have given to Mike Lindell, but as we all know if it wasn’t for double standards liberals wouldn’t have any.
It’s not just criticism of Hunter’s drug use that is off limits, you can’t even talk about the guy being divorced. Joe Biden played the “my grandkid said” card and expressed his grandchild’s concern that Hunter’s divorce would come up during the election (although getting divorced would seem to be way down the list of Hunter’s misdeeds), never the less the former Vice President informed America that
…. one grandchild told him: “Pop, I know it’s going to be mean, they’re going to say bad things about daddy. Mommy and daddy had a divorce and they’re going to really go after that.”
It is possible that the divorce may be mentioned in the context of Hunter’s affair with his late brothers wife or the information contained in the divorce papers such as the fact that
…Hunter had spent “extravagantly on his own interests (including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations), while leaving the family with no funds to pay legitimate bills.”
Strangely most articles written by the left wing side of the media (significantly larger than it’s right wing counterpart) fail to refer to Hunter as “alleged coke head” or “former coke head” or just plain “coke head”, he is seen as a……wait for it……….victim.
It should be noted that in regards to his contribution to the effort to stem the tide of COVID19 Hunter’s sole offering has been protecting his former girlfriend and baby mama from exposure by delaying his deposition due to a plethora of reasons as explained in an article by “Fox New” editor Gregg Re which states that
Hunter Biden’s attorneys have abruptly asked the Arkansas judge in his ongoing paternity case to postpone his scheduled March 11 deposition until after Election Day, saying the coronavirus outbreak, his wife’s “imminent due date” and “intense media scrutiny” all pose a risk of “personal endangerment” for the former vice president’s son.
Additionally, the article goes on to explain that
As something of an olive branch, Biden’s team notes in its new motion that it “has no objection to entry of an order continuing the temporary support for another nine months and rescheduling the deposition and hearing at the end of that period” — this would be after the 2020 presidential election.
That seems to be rather convenient and hardly suspicious at all.
Take that Mike Lindell
