Give MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell credit for this: he’s not afraid of saying anything, at any time, even if it makes him sound like a fool.
He told Steve Bannon on a podcast called “War Room: Pandemic” that he has a plan to launch a patriotism-themed e-commerce shopping site, and in his crosshairs immediately will be none other than Amazon, which he says his site will rival.
There is a video of Lindell describing why he decided to do this currently playing on the site.
“For years entrepreneurs and inventors have come to me with products and ideas. They don’t know how to market them, and I haven’t had the time to show them.
I am going to put vetted products from great entrepreneurs on here, like you see a sampling of them here today, that are going to change this country.
“We’re finally going to be able to see these products and be able to get these great entrepreneurs, their great ideas, out to you, the public.”
Some of the products he’s slated to carry, which almost certainly is causing Jeff Bezos to have sleepless nights in one of his 11 mansions he owns all over the world is the “uncommon USA flag pole,” “freedom coffee,” and lots of pro-Trump books.
Lindell is calling his new creation MyStore, and currently it sits on the MyPillow site, and features 81 items for sale.
Currently on the MyPillow website is what Lindell has called MYStore. As of Tuesday, there are 82 items for sale.
Lindell’s self-described “rival,” Amazon, currently sells well over 4,000 items per minute, and has over 150 million Amazon Prime members.
So as for “rivaling” Amazon, he’s clearly almost there.
