During Trump’s Coronavirus press conference on Monday, he invited some people from private industry to speak, including Mike Lindell, the owner of My Pillow.

CNN decided to cut away from the event when Lindell spoke.

Lindell was not there to sell pillows. Trump invited him to speak because he has restructured his company in order to manufacture face masks for hospitals. In other words, he is doing far more for the country than anyone at CNN or any other media outlet.

Smug critics couldn’t even be bothered to use Lindell’s name, opting instead to call him the “My Pillow guy.”

Lindell is making a very important contribution. Julia Musto reported at FOX News:

Mike Lindell says MyPillow making masks to fight COVID-19, calls on other manufacturers to help

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said Friday that he decided to start making face masks to aid in the fight against the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) because his passion has always been to help others.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Ed Henry, Lindell said that he couldn’t think of a better time to do so.

“We started then to find out what we could make,” he said. “We worked with the administration. They have a coalition to what kind of masks are need out there. Obviously, we specialize in cotton and we found out different materials that they didn’t want — latex…and stuff. So, finally, we got the final prototype three days ago.”

Lindell said it took MyPillow workers three days to turn over a 200,000-square-foot factory into a facility to produce the masks. They are currently making about 10,000 a day and aim to produce up to 50,000 a day.

Even MSNBC carried Lindell’s remarks, which you can watch below:

Greg Gutfeld of FOX News had some choice responses for the critics:

This crisis has brought out the best in some, the worst in others.
