What can you say about MyPillow founder Mike Lindell? It seemed like it was just yesterday that he was photographed entering the West Wing of the White House, carrying notes which appeared to advocate for martial law, and now he’s having a garage sale. Things sure change fast, huh?
Lindell claims that annual sales fell $100 million after several big-box retailers cut ties following his election wide-eyed election claims. And his claims are so bogus that he was proven wrong by a forensic expert after the pillow salesman said he would fork over $5 million to anyone who could poke holes in data he claimed reflected the November 2020 election.
And now he’s selling a lot of his sh*t.
MyPillow is auctioning off hundreds of pieces of equipment and subleasing manufacturing space after several shopping networks and major retailers took the company’s products off shelves.
The Chaska-based manufacturer recently listed more than 850 “surplus equipment” items on the online auction site K-Bid. Sewing machines, industrial fabric spreaders, forklifts and even desks and chairs are up for auction.
Founder and CEO Mike Lindell said MyPillow has experienced a loss in revenue and the items are no longer needed as the company consolidates its operations.
Major retailers such as Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond and Slumberland Furniture all said they will no longer sell MyPillow products as Lindell continues to falsely claim that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.
“It was a massive, massive cancellation,” Lindell said in a phone interview Monday. “We lost $100 million from attacks by the box stores, the shopping networks, the shopping channels, all of them did cancel culture on us.”
The auction does not appear related to the $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit targeting both Lindell and MyPillow, which is ongoing in federal court.
Imagine destroying your business for a twice-impeached twice-indicted septuagenarian recently found liable for sexual abuse and whose ego is so large that he wears lifts in his shoes to appear taller.
