It turns out that supporting a president who incites an insurrection and tries to steal an election is bad for business. My Pillow guy Mike Lindell, who has been an increasingly vocal supporter of Donald Trump and spent millions of dollars funding his baseless election fraud legal challenges around the country, is learning that lesson the hard way as several major retail outlets are now refusing to sell his products.
During an interview with Right Side Broadcasting Lindell complained that national retailer Bed Bath and Beyond told him that it is dropping his bedding products from its product offerings. He told host Brian Glenn “I just got off the phone with Bed Bath and Beyond and they’re dropping My Pillow. I just got off the phone – Kohl’s, all these other places. These [companies], they’re scared, like a Bed Bath & Beyond, they’re scared. They were good partners. In fact, I told them, ‘You guys come back anytime you want.'”

Lindell also confirmed Texas-based supermarket chain HEB, which operates 340 locations, no longer will be selling his products. Online retailer Wayfair also announced it is cutting ties with his company.
Lindell was photographed at the White House this past Friday carrying pages of notes that appear to outline a series of recommendations to Trump for overturning the presidential election results to remain in power. Among those that are visible are the words, “Move Kash Patel to CIA acting” a reference to the current chief of staff to acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller.
Lindell confirmed that he met with Trump for about five minutes. Lindell said Trump had told him to turn over his material to lawyers working at the White House, who would look into it.
Lindell has pushed false conspiracy theories about Dominion Voting Systems and its part in the presidential election, falsely accusing the company of tampering with votes to favor Joe Biden, among other conspiracies. On Monday, Dominion sent a cease and desist letter to Lindell under threat of a lawsuit if he does not stop spreading his baseless claims.
