Pillow King Mike Lindell Questions DeSantis Florida Victory!
Staunch Trump supporter Mike “Pillow King” Lindell has questioned Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s recent landslide re-election win in the Sunshine State.
In what could be a precursor to a coming battle between the former President and current Florida Governor, Lindell, a major influencer for Trump’s base, is throwing shade at DeSantis, claiming his victory in deep blue counties in Florida smack of voter fraud.
Trump has already announced his candidacy for 2024. DeSantis has not said if he will run for President.
Lindell specifically questioned the big victory DeSantis won in Miami-Dade County on “The Lindell Report.” The county, which has traditionally gone for Democrats in past elections, swung big for DeSantis during the Florida gubernatorial race by 11 points.
No evidence of fraud has circulated, and before the election, a number of observers had pointed to the county and suggested that DeSantis had a chance to pull off a big victory.
But Lindell went after DeSantis over his unprecedented victory in traditionally blue Miam-Dade.
“I look at deviations, everybody. That’s a deviation. I don’t believe it,” Lindell said, later adding that “I’m going to find out in Miami-Dade County – what happened there because it’s a deviation from the norm.”
The often controversial MyPillow CEO is being sued for defamation by Dominion Voting Systems regarding his comments about the 2020 election and their voting machines. Lindell has pushed dubious claims about the 2020 election despite the fact that no widespread fraud was found, and multiple audits in different states have affirmed the states’ original results in the 2020 election.
While Republican candidates and other members of the party have often targeted election denialism claims at Democrats, the MyPillow CEO’s comments are unusually targeted at another Republican.

Wow, somebody gonna go to the woodshed for that comment…….
Lindell will not fare well in the Dominion case unless he finds a legal loophole. The only question may be how much $$$$$$ and since he destroyed this company, ouch.
Lindell lost whatever marbles were left in his brain. Once upon a time I liked him, i now despise him. Hes NUTS.
maryann: I agree, I liked him too, loved a man who could single-handily resurrect the pillow industry by building a better idea.
Then he went full partisan in-your-face political of the tinfoil hat variety and even with his current deep discounts, no sale. I am not alone, his business is bad off. Walmart dropped him, he closed his last mall store in 9/22. Bed Bath and Beyond, Wayfair, Costco. and Kohls dropped him last year. In all, over 40 retailers have dropped him like a lie.
The guy must be losing millions. When I used to sign contracts with three-parties to sell their shit though my channel, I always had a “return” policy meaning they had to buy back all my inventory. Just stocking one on every shelf for me was sometimes two or more years of production for many of these folks. Hell, I needed 500 just for my in-house training centers. Me dropping them often bankrupted them. Think about how much inventory a Walmart would have.
But it’s Dominion that will bankrupt him beyond recovery and this one looks pretty solid. Their damages must be considerable even after you remove the “inflation.”
WhattheH happened to HIM??
Early success. Some think that what drives initial success is replicable.
The same thing that happened before he was rich… drug and alcohol addled mind… turned born-again Christian to clean up… then traded in his Born-Again cult for the Trump cult… Now it’s all falling apart again because cults never clean up the real problem, that he can’t think for himself, so he’s reverted back to addled mind.
He has gone off the deep end. Stick with making pillows and out of politics.
