Trump calls MyPillow salesman to discuss martial law

BabylonChristmas

President Trump listens as Michael J. Lindell, CEO of MyPillow Inc., speaks during a daily briefing on the novel coronavirus, Covid-19, in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, D.C., on March 30th, 2020.

President Trump appears to be out of options in his quest to con his way into a second term in office. The court challenges didn’t work. Pressuring Republican politicians to hold up the certification of the election results didn’t work. Inciting a mob of thousands of his supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol building didn’t work. As things stand currently, Joe Biden is still scheduled to be sworn in as president on January 20th.

But Donald J. Trump isn’t one to give up. No, he’s going to “fight like hell,” just like he told his supporters before they attacked the Capitol last week. He’s still got a solid five days to drum up another ill-fated scheme to stay in office, and he’s calling in the big guns. Mike Lindell, the MAGA-friendly affordable bedding entrepreneur also known as the MyPillow guy, was seen entering the White House on Friday.

Now why, exactly, is Trump spending his final days in office meeting with the CEO of a pillow company? We don’t have to guess. Lindell left his notes exposed as he was heading into the White House, and it looks like he and the president were set to talk about something related to … steps to be “taken immediately to save” … something, something … “Constitution.”

OK, this doesn’t seem good. Let’s keep reading.

“…Insurrection Act now as a result of the assault” … something, something … “martial law if necessary upon the first hint of any…”

OK, then!

So just to reset where we’re at here: As states are struggling to inoculate their citizens against a relentless pandemic that has killed nearly 400,000 Americans, and as the nation continues to reckon with how a violent mob of extremists was able to infiltrate the Capitol and kill five people in an attempt to overthrow the government, the president of the United States is meeting with a pillow salesman to discuss the possibility of instituting martial law. Sounds about right.

This is far from the first time Trump has turned to Lindell, maybe the president’s most ardent supporter from the business world. The MyPillow guy has appeared at several of the president’s rallies, and even after last week’s insurrection maintained that Trump would remain president for another four years. (Lindell described the riot at the Capitol as “very peaceful,” which will be great news for the five people who died.) He’s also advised the president on Covid-19, and reportedly helped inspire Trump’s promotion of an exotic plant extract as a cure. (Lindell acquired a financial stake in the company that produces the product shortly before pushing it to the president.) Trump even invited Lindell to speak during a coronavirus task force briefing from the White House Rose Garden. “Boy, do you sell those pillows,’ Trump said as he introduced him.

Trump bringing Lindell into the White House on Friday shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, which is probably more ludicrous than the visit itself. At least we have a better idea about the nature of the “many calls and many meetings” that have made up the entirety of Trump’s recent daily schedules.

So Trump wants to do all THIS because he wants to remain the dictator-in-chief. I wish he was gone already :saladga:

It's funny that the full extent of his abilities as president is limited to dispatching national guard members. And das it.

Neither martial law nor the Insurrection Act allow him to just indefinitely hold office and even if it did, congress has the exact same permissions and would overwhelmingly tell him to sit the f*ck down.

He's cooked.

4 days, bitch :kiss:

I mean on one hand I want him to keep on this desperate act it's so entertaining to watch everything crumbles before him. Slamming his nasty face on the dirt road and dragging it up and down. 

On the other hand though, this means his rabid supporters will follow him to death. There would be civil war and it's scary to think how many people will be on the wrong side this time.

This is just a commercial for mypillow, simple as that. Trump is probably a sleeping partner.

With only four days left there is still plenty of time for Trump to make another mess.

Less than half of his voters even believe his election fraud lies. I don't think he has the numbers tbh. Even if he does, we beat those same people in 1865 and 1945, we can do it again :oops:

This whole presidency has been a complete farce. These Trumpers are actually violent and support Kyle Rittenhouse.
