(AmericanPoliticalDaily.Com)- The Republican founder of My Pillow, an American company that sells high-quality pillows, slammed the “evil” media this week during a segment on Fox’s Lou Dobbs Tonight. Mike Lindell, the founder and CEO of MyPillow, appeared on the show to discuss the media backlash after he urged Americans to read the Bible and spend precious time with family during the coronavirus lockdown.
Lindell was speaking to the media during a White House Rose Garden briefing, discussing the incredible work his team is doing producing medical equipment. Lindell shut down his normal pillow-making operations and focused his team’s efforts on making tens of thousands of protective masks every week.
After outlining the work he is doing, he took the opportunity to remind the American people about the importance of reading the Bible.

Lindell didn’t back down when he received an onslaught of attacks online from journalists, Democrats, and trolls.
“You mentioned God. You have the Bible written large behind you, I suspect around you, as people of faith do,” Fox News anchor Lou Dobbs. “I want to turn to Chris Hayes, intrepid host on MSNBC. This is how he reacted to your appearance with the president and the other CEOs who are doing so much to help this country in this moment of crisis. Here is Mr. Hayes.”
Dobbs then played a clip of left-wing commentator Chris Hayes suggesting the daily press briefings, where President Trump updates the media on the coronavirus fight, may be bad for the public. Hayes was also heard taking a jab at Lindell.
“It seems crazy to me that everyone’s still taking them when you have MyPillow guy getting up there talking about reading the bible.”
Dobbs gave Lindell the chance to respond, and he did.
“I heard Jim Acosta attack me too, and he was ten feet from me in the Rose Garden. This is just evil, Lou. This is evil…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,” Liddell said.
Harsh words, but put so politely!
