MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell just fired back at CNN reporter Jim Acosta and the rest of the mainstream media after they mocked him for expressing his faith in God during a press conference with President Donald Trump on Monday.
During the briefing, Lindell graciously announced that his company has committed to producing 50,000 masks per day, along with many other supplies that will be essential in fighting the coronavirus, according to The Blaze. Despite the fact that this was an incredibly generous move, the mainstream media still ripped Lindell for his call for Americans to turn to God amid this crisis.
Acosta even went so far as to call Lindell’s appearance at the briefing a “PR stunt,” while MSNBC host Chris Hayes said it was “bad for the country” that Trump gave the MyPillow CEO a platform to talk about God.
Media: @Acosta in a recap with @wolfblitzer: “These briefings could be better designed. @realDonaldTrump could come out, say a few words – not have these PR stunts like Mr. Pillow coming out and getting a plug for his company – and let us hear more from Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci.” pic.twitter.com/JVQLvakPGE

Lindell fired back the next day during an interview with Fox Business host Lou Hobbs.
“I’ll tell you what, I heard Jim Acosta attack me too, and he was 10 feet from me in the Rose Garden,” Lindell said. “This is just evil, Lou. This is evil.”
“I’m appalled by the journalists that I see there,” Lindell continued. “I used to think that, they are not really that evil. Well, yes, they are.”

It’s absolutely despicable that bashing Christianity has become so acceptable in the mainstream media that someone simply urging Americans to turn to God in a crisis is now considered to be taboo. Lindell had his company make an incredibly generous move for the good of our nation, yet because he is a conservative Christian, the media only saw an opportunity to attack him.
Acosta, Hayes, and the rest of the media who bashed Lindell should be ashamed of themselves.
