Editor’s note: An original version of this story featured a promotion that Conservative Brief did for Mike Lindell. The promotion cited allegations of fraud in the 2020 election. Elections officials have affirmed the integrity of the 2020 vote and Joe Biden was declared the winner. We have removed the false promotion from the story and regret the error.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was stopped at the Canadian border as he attempted to join the trucker protest and bring pillows with him.
The CEO said that his truck, which had “10,000 pillows” including “1,000 Bible pillows” for the children of the truckers, was stopped at the Ambassador Bridge leading to Windsor, Ontario, Canada’s National Post reported.
A senior government source said that Lindell, as well an accompanying videographer, were intercepted at the Port Huron-Sarnia border crossing on Tuesday evening as they were en route to Ottawa to distribute “pillows and Bibles” to convoy protestors.
On the same day, a My Pillow truck carrying “over 10,000 pillows,” including 1,000 “Bible pillows” destined for the truckers’ children was also intercepted trying to cross the border through the Ambassador Bridge leading to Windsor, ON.
According to the senior government source, Lindell was turned back because he was not fully vaccinated and did not have a negative PCR test in hand.
But the CEO has another plan. He is going to send the pillows via the air, “with little parachutes,” The Daily Beast reported.
“We need to get the MyPillows to the people!” he said.
“I can not give the location out, and it is no joke! I just confirmed with them [the helicopter company], and yes, this is the plan. We have the helicopter confirmed, but we are moving the time up to 11 am,” he said.
It was last week when the CEO and avid Trump supporter announced that he is sending pillows to the truckers who are protesting vaccine mandates.
“All of our employees are busy making pillows right now for the truckers in Canada. We’re gonna try and get them though,” he said to RSBN.
“I’m not gonna say what day or you know there will be obstructionists,” he said.
“I have a plant up in Canada. I have a factory in Canada but we can’t make enough there because of what happened before,” he said. “Remember when I was canceled in the United States (Canadian) companies canceled me too.”
He then praised the truckers for their efforts in fighting for what they believed in.
“What brave truckers, and it’s going on around the world now. It’s amazing, we’re winning,” the CEO said. “I encourage all the truckers, don’t give up and say ‘we’ll compromise halfway.’ No. We want all (of) our freedoms,” he said.
