MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says he's losing $65 million over election-fraud claims

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Business Insider

[div class"excerpt"]MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says he expects to lose $65 million in pillow revenue this year because of retailer boycotts over his claims that the 2020 US election was rigged.

That projection, Lindell told Insider in an interview Monday after being served with a defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems seeking $1.3 billion in damages, is evidence he isn't pushing election-fraud claims for the money.

"I lost 20 retailers, and it's cost me $65 million this year that I won't get back, OK?" Lindell told Insider. "There's your story. Print it right. Don't try and twist this."

The 121-page lawsuit alleges the pillow mogul used conspiracy theories about the election to turbocharge sales for his company, using conspiratorial phrases as discount codes and placing expensive advertisements with like-minded media outlets.

I went over to the Mall of America a couple weeks ago when it was too cold to walk outside. Unfortunately, it was way too crowded to feel safe, but I walked by the MyPillow store before I left. There was not a soul in the place except for an employee dozing behind the counter.

57. It's not a lie if Mike Lindell believes it's true.

I had to read the article to understand why Lindell gave this interview and why he's claiming he lost money.

The lawsuit has to prove Mike Lindell lied. If he really believed Dominion cheated the election he's not lying, he's just gullible, like so many others. The suit specifies that he purposely told the big lie to promote pillow sales, and they have evidence. That's the motive they want to convince a jury of.
Lindell is claiming he lost money and didn't mean to specifically defame Dominion. He's just stupid.

58. 65,000,000

Coincidentally, that's the number of pillows (at $50 each) he could give all the adults who voted for trump. (65 million times $50 = 1.3 BILLION!)

And it's how much he says he lost!

Gotta luv that math!

I hope your company goes into the shitter, gets bought out by a couple of your janitors, and they turn it into a company that uses its profit to support minorities, immigrants, and education. Their slogan can be, "Buy MyPillow conscience-free - we're no longer aligned with Hitler!"

If people chose to not buy his pillows because he's a RWNJ, that is their CHOICE. Maybe they decided not to buy them because his company has an "F" rating with the Better Business Bureau. Besides, people can still buy his products from his website.
