Foreign Policy Fox News WTF?!

Hack Hannity Turned An Attack On Biden’s Foreign Policy Into A MyPillow Ad

The Taliban takeover of Afghanistan continues to raise questions about how we got to this point and what the future may hold for long-persecuted groups such as women, but to hear Fox News host Sean Hannity tell it, all will be right with the world if you’ve got yourself a good pillow.

Media Matters For America reports that on his daily radio show, Hannity was slamming President Joe Biden for his foreign policy and what’s transpiring in Afghanistan at the moment:

“How would you like to be in Kabul today, as an American, and you can’t get to the airport? Where are you thinking your life is headed?”

OK. That’s a fair point. Any American who’s still in Kabul would indeed be wondering how they were going to get out of the country and whether or not they’re going to be safe until they can get to the airport and leave.

But then Hannity went from making a point to hawking an overpriced pillow that isn’t worth a damn:

“If you’re one of those family members, I bet you’re not sleeping. I don’t even think My Pillow can do it. MyPillow.com. That’s where I go. I fall asleep faster, I stay asleep longer. These are going to be a lot of sleepless nights for so many of our fellow Americans. We’ve got to get them home.”

It’s odd to hear Hannity giving a plug for MyPillow because the company’s CEO, Mike Lindell, has soured on Fox recently, HuffPost notes:

“Interestingly, the MyPillow shout-out follows Lindell lambasting Hannity and fellow Fox News host Laura Ingraham on the right-wing OAN network for not featuring him or his bogus ‘evidence’ that the 2020 election was stolen.

“‘The truth is [Sean], you’re not saying anything on your show,’ Lindell ranted at Hannity on Monday. ‘Neither are you, Laura.'”

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Facing Financial Ruin For Lying About The 2020 Election Being Rigged

You’ve probably seen Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, in his commercials and also during his frequent photo-ops with President Donald Trump, whom he praises as if he were talking about God.

After the results of the 2020 presidential election became clear and Joe Biden was declared the winner, Lindell began showing up on right-wing new outlets, frantically declaring that Trump had been cheated, the election stolen, and claiming he had a patriotic duty to shout from the proverbial rooftops what he believed had taken place.

In one of those appearances, Lindell even tried to blame Fox News for helping to oust Trump:

Yep, there’s crazy, and then there’s Trump cult crazy, which is exactly what Lindell is a part of.

But Lindell’s conspiracy theories may be on the verge of costing him every dime he has, according to the New York Times:

“Officials with Dominion Voting Systems have sent Mike Lindell, the C.E.O. of MyPillow, a legal letter warning of pending litigation over his baseless claims of widespread fraud involving their machines.

“’You have positioned yourself as a prominent leader of the ongoing misinformation campaign,’ the letter said, referring to his continued false claims that their systems were rigged by someone to effect the outcome.

“’Litigation regarding these issues is imminent,’ the letter said. Mr. Lindell is only the latest to get a warning letter from Dominion officials about potential litigation, after he and Sidney Powell, the right-wing lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani and others have continued to spread false claims about the integrity of the results the machines showed.”

Sounds like Dominion is ready to file suit and take everything Lindell has. And they’d have a good case if they decide to. All they’d need to do is play Lindell’s words to a jury and ask for a large settlement. That alone could leave MyPillow and its founder flat busted. All because Lindell didn’t have enough brains to realize he’s in a cult and walk away when he had a chance.

Imagine a year from now: Trump is under multiple indictments and the Trump Organization is on the verge of collapse. And, if we’re lucky, maybe Mike Lindell will also be on his way to the poorhouse.
