1. yeah, I know... I checked out his pillows in BB&B and they surely don't seem "special" to me

but even if they were the best that could be purchased, no thanks. I try not to support deplorables.

4. Here you go

President Donald Trump trumpeted American-made goods at the White House this week — and put in a plug for a Minnesota pillow company while he was at it.

“Very good,” the president said of the MyPillow resting before him at a Made in America business roundtable at the White House on Wednesday afternoon — one of several events staged at the White House last week to highlight American-made goods.

Trump said he’d taken several MyPillows home after meeting company founder Mike Lindell during the campaign. In a testimonial straight out of a MyPillow infomercial, the president added: “I’ve slept so much better ever since.”

6. Is this the guy in question? (don't know who specifically OP was referring to)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_J_Lindell

Mike Lindell is the founder of the Lindell Foundation; producer and co-founder of LightBeamMedia, a Christian content Production Company; [1] and CEO of My Pillow, Inc.

***
At the request of then-Republican candidate Donald Trump, Lindell met with Trump in August 2016 in the Trump Tower in New York City. They talked about the benefits of products being made in America, bringing jobs back to the USA, and helping the inner cities.

From that time on, Lindell was an avid and very open supporter of Trump, even calling Trump “The most amazing president this country has ever seen in history.”[10] On October 20, 2016, Lindell attended the final presidential debate in Las Vegas to "give all of (his) credibility to Mr. Donald Trump”.

On November 6, 2016, two days before the November 2016 election, Lindell spoke at a Trump campaign rally in Minneapolis, where he called the presidential election “Biblical”.[10] On November 8, 2016, he attended the Official Donald Watch Party. And, on January 20, 2017, Lindell attended Trump's inauguration, receiving an inauguration lapel pin as a personal gift from Trump.

7. Typical Trumphumper - crooked as hell

https://www.forbes.com/sites/legalnewsline/2017/06/27/no-rest-for-mypillow-as-it-fights-lawyer-driven-lawsuits-around-country/#510dad5e5071

Plaintiffs filed at least six class actions from October to April against the company, which offers a pillow it says will stay fluffy and cool through the night. Customers haven’t sued because they’re unhappy with the product; instead, they say the company inflated the cost on two special pricing options to create the illusion of a sale.

Lawsuits have been filed in Oregon, Minnesota, Montana, Florida, Ohio and New York.

3. It's not My Pillow. It's his pillow.

Tried one years ago. Gave me a stiff neck.

8. It would be better if he wasn't flooding the airwaves with his BS ads...

Hopefully, they will die down after the Xmas rush.

10. Oh no. I bought one and liked it so much I bought another.

Both were overpriced but work for me. I didn’t know he was a deplorable.

I hope someone steps up to compete with him.

12. Plus his ads look like he's humping his pillows.

MyPillow should be renamed HumpMyPillows. You know you want to do it!


Plus, their jingle utterly sucks. Probably their pillows, too.

13. Crappy overpriced pillow

It says you're to wash it every 3 months. Stupid pillow broke open in the dryer and it took me months to get the pieces out of my lint trap. My dried clothes had the pieces on it and I had to use the sticky lint removers on many loads of laundry. I threw the other one away. And had to finally replace the dryer.

14. I hate his commercials because of his exploitation of Christians.

He's wearing a cross in every commercial and it is obvious exploitation as it is around his neck and outside the buttons on his shirt. He also uses others in his commercials to do the same. Makes me sick.
