PODCAST #126: Bucky Rants on Mike Lindell (The My Pillow Guy)


You may not think you know who Mike Lindell is, but you do. He’s the “My Pillow” guy. He dropped out of college because he had a gambling problem. I’m OK with that. He started and failed at a bunch of businesses in the 80’s and I respect that. He did a lot of drugs and a lot of drinking in the 90’s and 2000’s and he’s been sober since 2009, and I totally respect that. He credits his sobriety to his religion and while I don’t subscribe to that, I respect anything that will help you get onto and stay on the sobriety wagon. He employs over 1600 people and I respect the hell out of that. He has even created “The Lindell Foundation” to help addicts, which I totally respect. Here’s my issue- His political beliefs that he is shoving down everyone’s throats are killing his business. I don’t care if you’re on the left or the right, but by spewing it out to everyone, you’re alienating half of your customer base, and I’m sorry, but that’s just bad business. That, and he’s addicted to fame. He looks like an old, fat, Republican, Christian Eminem and it doesn’t look good on him. He believes all of his conspiracy theories because he’s surrounded himself with yes men who will only agree with him. If you spend enough money on advertising, lots of people will tell you they like you, but they really just like your money. Go sell the company to Procter & Gamble and retire on an island somewhere so we don’t have to watch your ads anymore.
