Mike Lindell has become a White House fixture of late, an ardent supporter of Donald Trump, the MyPillow CEO stops by with plenty of election conspiracy theories for anyone who wants to hear them. For awhile Donald Trump got an earful from Lindell, but now the pillow salesman could be in for a rough spot. Two major retailers that stock MyPillow, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s are dropping the products. The New York Times writes:
Bed Bath & Beyond said on Tuesday that its decision was rooted in MyPillow’s performance. “We have been rationalizing our assortment to discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands,” a representative said in a statement. A spokeswoman for Kohl’s said that “there has been decreased customer demand for MyPillow,” and that the chain did not plan to buy future inventory after clearing out its supply.
But it’s more than those two retailers. NBC News reports:
Lindell told NBC Minnesota affiliate KARE on Monday that HEB Stores, Wayfair and Canada’s Today’s Shopping Choice channel had also stopped selling his products. MyPillow, the bedding company with commercials starring Lindell, is based in Chaska, Minnesota.
In an email to NBC News Tuesday morning, Lindell said that “a group has attacked my vendors” and that the retailers called him saying they had been threatened with “a boycott if they don’t comply” and drop his products.
Lindell has maintained it was voter fraud that led to Donald Trump’s defeat in November. He made an appearance at the White House earlier this week where photographers were able to take pictures of his notes which mentioned the “insurrection act,” a law that allows the president to deploy military forces within the United States.
Lindell is also being threatened with a lawsuit from Dominion voting machines, a lawsuit Lindell says he welcomes.
