MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell announced at a White House press briefing last week that he could be using his massive company to make 50,000 medical face masks a day to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
In response, media elitists like CNN’s Jim Acosta and others attacked Lindell because during his remarks, he went a bit off-script and encouraged Americans to turn to God during these tough times.
Acosta attacked Lindell’s appearance as nothing more than shameless “PR stunt” for his company and President Donald Trump.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes said it was “bad for the country” that Trump gave the MyPillow CEO a platform to talk about God.
Media: @Acosta in a recap with @wolfblitzer: “These briefings could be better designed. @realDonaldTrump could come out, say a few words – not have these PR stunts like Mr. Pillow coming out and getting a plug for his company – and let us hear more from Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci.” pic.twitter.com/JVQLvakPGE

But Lindell doubled down on his comments during an interview with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, saying he’s glad people are unifying despite the “evil media.”
Dobbs said, “You mentioned God, you have the Bible written large behind you, I suspect around you, as people of faith. I want to turn to Chris Hayes, intrepid host on MSNBC,” before airing a clip of Hayes Monday night discussing how people can’t take Trump seriously with Lindell alongside him at the presser.
“Seems crazy that everyone’s still taking [these briefings] when you have the MyPillow guy getting up there talking about reading the Bible,” Hayes stated.
“Wow…The pillow guy reading the Bible,” Dobbs then exclaimed.
“I heard Jim Acosta attack me too, and he was 10 feet from me, in the Rose Garden. This is just evil, Lou. This is evil,” Lindell stated.
“This president has been the best man in charge for such a time as this; it’s just those newscasters, those journalists, we know who they are… CNN, what they did to me, I’m sorry, I put on a message of hope to the country that God had given us grace in November of 2016, a nation that turned its back on God, and right now we’re part of this big revival,” Lindell continued.
“I am appalled by the journalists that I see there. I used to think that, they are not that evil, yes, they are,” he concluded.
This is another reason the mainstream media’s approval ratings have plummeted in the last few weeks.
They loathe Trump so much that they are now smearing a man — who is literally retooling his own business to make 50,000 masks a day to help keep Americans safe during the fight against the coronavirus — because he dared to cite the Bible and mentioned turning to God during these trying times.
Last month, Acosta made a total fool of himself by attacking Trump after he delivered a national address from the Oval Office about combating the coronavirus.
