Fast food restaurant company Hardee’s just masterfully mocked MyPillow CEO and noted conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell after he complained that agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized his phone while he was in the drive-thru of a Hardee’s restaurant…the company saw an opportunity to stake a new claim to fame after the FBI seized Lindell’s phone, taking a jab at Lindell in the process.
The use of the word “pillowy” to describe Hardee’s biscuits was a clear reference to Lindell, who has been the subject of considerable derision since the MyPillow CEO, who previously advised former President Donald Trump’s campaign, took a more active role in supporting and financing Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 general election result by spreading disproven conspiracy theories about widespread electoral fraud in that election…
Lindell’s phone was seized in connection with a 2021 breach of voting machines in Mesa County, Colorado, committed by former Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters, who is facing felony charges for alleged tampering after sensitive voter machine data she leaked was presented at Lindell’s “Cyber Symposium,” which he billed as an arena in which he would unveil definitive proof that the 2020 election was stolen but that ultimately failed to produce any evidence of fraud.
Surprise, surprise! It takes someone dim enough to be a Trump fanboy to involve their working life, their private life, justifying the lies and foolishness that ooze from Republican politics, nowadays.
