JORDAN, Minnesota — It’s not surprising that there are some who might think MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is bit deranged.
Officers in Minnesota were called to check on the welfare of a man standing outside a home with no coa in the frigid cold and hugging a pillow.
But when cops arrived at the scene they discovered the man was “actually a cardboard cutout of MyPillow CEO and inventor Mike Lindell.”
“Those cardboard cutouts sure can look real from a distance and the caller certainly was not wanting to get too close thinking who is this deranged person standing outside in the cold hugging a pillow; always better to call the police,” the Jordan, Minnesota police wrote on their Facebook page.
Lindell is well known for his commercials in which he jumps out of people’s medicine cabinets to sing the praises of his patented pillow. He is also a vocal supporter of Donald Trump who he says was “chosen by God” to be president.
Lindell, 57, spent many years struggling with cocaine and alcohol addiction and built his multi-million dollar pillow business after becoming sober in 2009. He has also created a faith-based foundation to help addicts.
