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.
Former President Donald Trump has come to the aid of one of his most ardent supporters, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.
The CEO has been scrutinized and had his products removed from stores for his beliefs about the 2020 presidential election, and those sacrifices have not gone unnoticed by the 45th President of the United States, Mediaite reported.
Donald Trump held a rally in Conroe, Texas on Saturday and offered endorsement and praise of multiple political figures. He also raved about MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell‘s prodigious advertising budget.
As Trump was introducing and thanking various people such as Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and longtime Trump ally Rep. Louie Gohmert, he took a moment to point out Lindell in the crowd and thank him for having and spending so much money sponsoring things.
“Now you’re selling everything. He’s no longer the pillow man now he’s selling everything!” said Trump.
The crowd began chanting “We love Mike,” as Trump paused and then he began praising him again.
“I think he’s the single greatest purchaser of advertising I’ve ever seen,” he said. “I said, Mike, I don’t care how many pillows you sell, and now you’re selling slippers, and sheets, you’re selling everything. I said, I don’t care, you can’t afford that much advertising.”
“I think, you know what he does? He waits until the show is just ready to go on, any empty slot, he says, ‘I’ll give you two-hundred for it,’ to Fox. ‘I’ll give you two hundred.’ They’ll say ‘no we want three,’ he said, ‘nope, I’ll go two-oh-one,’” the former president said.
“You’re the greatest buyer of ads I’ve ever seen,” he said. “And a lot of other good things, too, by the way.”
