MyPillow Guy Roasted for Plan to Drop Pillows to Canadian Truckers From the Sky After 'Pillows and Bibles' Shipment Denied Entry
MyPillow CEO and far-right conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell is known for being out of touch with reality. He continues to insist that the 2020 election was "stolen" from former President Donald Trump, whom Lindell believes was chosen by God to be in the White House. Though Trump's own attorney general—William Barr—found no evidence of widespread election fraud, Lindell absurdly claims he possesses enough evidence to imprison 300 million people, the majority of the United States' population.
With his fantasies about the 2020 election and the supposed deep state, it likely won't come as a surprise that Lindell's comments surrounding the truckers in Canada, who have blocked multiple border entry points in protest of vaccine-or-test mandates for truckers who deliver goods across Canadian borders.
Lindell is currently working to deliver free MyPillow goods to the truckers. After the initial shipment was denied entry into Canada, Lindell is about to take a more fanciful approach.
He's going to drop them from the sky.
The pillow peddler told The Daily Beast he would drop the pillows from a helicopter, adding that they would have little parachutes attached.
He told the reporters:
“We need to get the MyPillows to the people! ... I can not give the location out, and it is no joke! I just confirmed with them [the helicopter company], and yes, this is the plan. We have the helicopter confirmed, but we are moving the time up to 11 am.”
Lindell's latest nonsense generated mockery on Twitter.
Did he literally say it's no joke? That, in and of itself, is a joke. I'm giggling. https://t.co/V0Ye3b4qpt

Hopefully those pillows parachute themselves right into the dumpsters where they belong. https://t.co/IrZdesqhpf

Violating import export laws by flying a private aircraft over int'l borders and air dropping "supplies" will likely remind people that Canada has an actual military and that would be funny. https://t.co/A2fcgoqdjh

Some were reminded of the famous "Turkey Drop" scene from the '70s sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati.

It's like that WKRP episode - "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!"

It'll be interesting to see what Canada thinks of Lindell invading its airspace—if Lindell's plans ever actually get off the ground.
