President Trump has some high-profile fans who remain completely steadfast in their admiration. Mike Lindell — the now famous inventor of MyPillow — is one of those. He has been in the nation’s capital this week, making an appearance in an iconic spot — the main floor of the Trump International Hotel, just three blocks from the White House.
Mr. Lindell was happy to have a say about Mr. Trump, even as the line of his own fans grew, all seeking a selfie moment with the pillow entrepreneur — or to assure him that yes, they personally owned and adored their own MyPillow.
The self-made multimillionaire and infomercial superstar created the MyPillow empire from scratch in 2004. He did it while addicted to drugs. “People say all the time that’s one of the biggest miracles ever.”
He’s been clean and sober for over eight years, but his path from rags to riches — and almost back to rags — is an amazing American success story.
It is also one long, strange trip. And it’s even stranger that Lindell loves and cheating, stealing, lying fool like Trump. I guess all addicts are the same.
