The MyPillow guy brought his MyPillow to the White House

And apparently the president really likes the product.

We already know Mike Lindell, the inventor and CEO of MyPillow, is a big Donald Drumpf supporter.

So it’s no surprise he was at the White House with the president and other U.S. businesspeople Wednesday to talk about products that are made in the U.S. of A.

And like any good salesperson, he brought his signature product.

Here’s Bloomberg writer Justin Sink pointing out the MyPillow founder’s MyPillow:

And guess what? Drumpf himself apparently uses the product.

Having the president of the United States endorse your product isn't a bad achievement for a Wednesday. And Lindell got to sit right next to Drumpf for the Made in America roundtable.

Other business leaders brought their products too, as you can see in the middle of the room. Lindell by the way is with Minnesota Rep. Erik Paulsen at the meeting.

MyPillow did have to lay off 140 people this spring, right after giving all of its employees raises – though 1,500 people still work there. And in December, the Better Business Bureau revoked its accreditation of MyPillow and gave the Chaska-based company an F rating for constantly having products on “sale.”
