Remember the MyPillow guy, Mike Lindell? Interesting how some of these nutters who were all over our newsfeeds a few months ago have just slithered into the background, isn’t it? Well, some of them are still trying to remain relevant and Mike Lindell is doing something epic: taking on the retail giant Amazon. Because of course he is.
The pro-Trump conspiracy theorist Lindell appeared on Steve Bannon’s podcast last week and announced to his fellow conspiracy theorist (Bannon) that he has launched a web store on his MyPillow website. He’s calling it the unique name of “MyStore” and he’s convinced that it will be a genuine rival of Amazon. Here’s my psychic prediction: it won’t be. It will never sell much. These days, he’s even having a hard time selling his famous pillows, probably.
We Tried MyPillow and Didn’t Like It
By the way, here’s a side note. A few years ago, hubby and I bought two MyPillows. This was before we knew who this butt-clown was, of course. The fact is, we weren’t impressed with the overpriced pillows and quickly bought alternatives, relegating the dumpy MyPillows to our guest bedroom (sorry, guests). We didn’t hate the pillows, but they didn’t live up to the hype. These days, we have the Purple Harmony pillows and LOVE them. But I digress.
Donald the Caveman Book Series
On Lindell’s new Amazon competitor site (ha), he has a children’s book. It’s titled “Donald Builds the Wall” with the series header at the top calling it a “Donald the Caveman Book.” Oh, how perfect that series title is called, right? I doubt Lindell or Trump sees the irony in it.
The cover of the book features a blue creature who is holding a frantic-looking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and an angry-looking Bernie Sanders. Beside the giant blue figure is a red figure who, bizarrely, has hair like Trump and a long purple tongue that sticks out of his mouth.
There’s another book called “Donald Drains the Swamp.” Here is the description of the book series on the website.
The big plan for his e-commerce site seems to be to help “entrepreneurs and inventors” sell their ideas and products. He believes that there are tons of products out there that are going to “change this country. Here’s this assclown in a video explaining his concept.

Mike Lindell Interview with Steve Bannon
You can also buy flags and peanut brittle on the site. Is it bad that I sorta want to buy this book to have it as a collector’s item? I can’t bear to put money in his pocket, though! I’ll keep my eye out for a used copy on Amazon sometime in the future. Here’s a video of the interview with Bannon. Even Bannon is laughing at this clown. Epic!
