During remarks he gave at White House coronavirus task force briefing from the Rose Garden MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell called on Americans to read the Bible and find God during quarantine.
“God gave us grace on Nov. 8, 2016 to change the course we were on,” Lindell said, referring to the day Trump won office. “God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God.
“I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word, read our Bibles and spend time with our families,” he added before touting low unemployment and a roaring economy under Trump.
“With our great president, vice president, the administration and all the great people in this country praying daily, we will get through this and get back to a place that’s stronger and safer than ever,” he finished.
Needless to say, the media mocking was wildly off the charts despite Lindell’s massive contribution in re-purposing his factories to make medical supplies for the corona fight.
Imagine if he invoked Allah and the qur’an. Lindell would have been the new king-caliph. He’d have been feted and fawned over. He would have been the new media darling.
Mainstream media mocks White House appearance of ‘My Pillow Guy’ Mike Lindell despite contribution to virus fight

MyPillow founder responds to media critique of his faith-based speech
MyPillow founder Mike Lindell explains why he told people to pray during their time in isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Several members of the media were quick to dismiss the presence of “My Pillow” founder Mike Lindell at the White House coronavirus press briefing despite his company’s ongoing contribution to combating the outbreak.
Lindell, who was among several business leaders who spoke at Monday’s presser, announced that his company is aiming to increase its production of cotton face masks from 10,000 to 50,000 per day.
He also said a prayer and encouraged the country to dedicate time to their families and religion.
“God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on,” the pro-Trump businessman said. “God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God. I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word. Read our Bible and spend time with our families.”
However, critics from various news outlets mocked Lindell’s appearance at the Rose Garden.
“Trump just called the ‘My Pillow’ guy up to the podium in the Rose Garden. You cannot make this stuff up,” MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi reacted.
“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski tweeted, “Is that the my pillow guy?? Do I need to turn the volume up. I was waiting for the doctors.”
“The ‘My Pillow Guy’ was at the Corona Virus briefing today? Boy oh boy, do we need SNL this Saturday. If this had been a SNL skit we would have thought it was fake, right? You can’t make this s— up. Who is going to play the ‘my pillow guy’?” Miami Herold reporter Julie K. Brown asked.
“Well, imagine my relief that the My Pillow guy is on the job,” NeverTrump commentator Tom Nichols quipped.
“Trump now has the guy from My Pillow doing a campaign commercial for Trump’s 2020 campaign in the middle of a press conference about a deadly virus. How can any real news network air this BS?! #StopAiringTrump” Daily Beast and CNN opinion columnist Dean Obeidallah wrote.
“Look, it’s hard to fill up 90 minutes worth of material every single day, so you need to get some sponsored material/infomercials,” New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait joked.
