How a CEO Can Ensure That A Shitload of People Won't Buy His Crappy Products

For the CEO of a company that sells consumer goods, taking a strong stand on a political candidate or issue is an unforced error.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell declared that God had chosen President Trump to run against Hillary Clinton at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.

In a speech to the conservative activist conference posted to Twitter by Right Wing Watch, Lindell said Trump's victory in November 2016 was "a miracle" directly caused by divine intervention.
"Divine intervention"-- using Vladimir Putin as an agent of the Almighty?

So now "mypillow-daht-com" is going to go down as a place that has the badge denoting "exclusive supplier to American neo-nazis everywhere".

Or the CEO has resumed his former habitual use of Peruvian Marching Powder.

Funny about divine intervention. I got a message from God, too. It told me that several shipments of My Pillow were infested by bedbugs. Must be true, because why else would God tell me that?

Yours very crankily,

Perhaps he sensed a useful intersection of people who respond to television preaching and people who respond to infomercials.
