Fanatical Trump ally Mike Lindell, founder and CEO of MyPillow, is railing again Walmart after the shop giant removed MyPillow products from its stores as he continues to peddle false claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump.
“A Walmart spokesperson confirmed the products’ removal after Lindell posted a series of live videos on his Facebook page in which he talked about the decision in interviews with conservative podcasters,” The Hill reports.
“While we are no longer carrying them in stores, MyPillow products continue to be available on Walmart.com,” the spokesperson said, according to The Hill.
Lindell addressed the move by Walmart during an interview on Steve Bannon’s podcast “Bannon’s War Room.” The MyPillow CEO said the removal would be a “$10 million hit” to his company. He also told Bannon the company was spending $500,000 a week on television advertising, adding that he offered to lower the price of MyPillow products for Walmart.
In a separate interview, Lindell said Walmart was “canceling” him.
“You guys are canceling us just like the other box stores,” Lindell said he had told a Walmart executive. “Shame on you, Walmart. You’re disgusting.”
As noted by The Hill, “Lindell has repeatedly made debunked claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election and has been sued by voting system companies Dominion and Smartmatic for defamation over his claims.”
