(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell duped the fake news establishment at the Daily Beast, delivering an ironic statement to them about dropping pillows from the sky for the Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers, Uncanceled News reported.
Lindell had initially tried to ship thousands of pillows to the truckers and other protesters in order to make their rally more comfortable, but his shipments were halted at the border by draconian Canadian officials.
After his shipment was halted, the Daily Beast asked Lindell to comment.
He responded by delivering masterfully-crafted lines that tricked the fake news journalists into publishing a ludicrous story.
According to the Beast, Lindell said that “he intends to drop his pillows into Canada from a helicopter ‘with little parachutes’ attached. ‘We need to get the MyPillows to the people!’ he continued.”
Lindell continued to troll, suggesting that they emphasize the parachutes in order to ensure his concern for the safety of the people.
“Make sure you put that part in, or it could be dangerous,” he told them.
The rabid journalists then attempted to elicit the location of the fantastical pillow air drop.
Lindell responded vaguely, pretending to secrecy, but giving out just enough detail to whet their appetites.
“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,” he added.
The Daily Beast’s prestigious journalists even attempted but failed to contact the Canada Border Services Agency for comment late Wednesday night.
Unfortunately, they did not respond.
