Check out the straight poop re the origins of the adage “Politics makes strange bedfellows” or its close variant “Political interests can bring together people who otherwise have little in common”
“This saying is adapted from a line in the play The Tempest, by William Shakespeare: ‘Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.’ It is spoken by a man (Trinculo) who has been shipwrecked and finds himself seeking shelter beside a sleeping monster.”dictionary dot com
Conforming all of that above wisdom to tempestuous, contemporary times, we discover the two weirdos, the hungover MyPillow guy, CEO Mike Lindell, waking up, “the morning after”, next to the asleep at the switch monster, the one and (thank god) only drunk on power Donald J. Trump.
Indeed, during the waning days of the failed Trump admin, foolhardy Mikey visited the White House for the express purpose of validating Donny’s preposterous, unfounded, unsubstantiated delusions that “stuffed” absentee ballots and rigged voting machines had denied him a second term.
During their political trysts (sleepovers?), these two strange bedfellows engaged in subversive pillow talk to discuss their shared Anti-American agenda; e.g. how Donny could “easily” declare Martial Law to muck up free elections, disenfranchise multiple millions of voters, deny the legitimately elected Joe Biden the presidency, utterly destroy democracy and, in the end, tear the U.S. Constitution asunder and overthrow America.
It’s entirely possible that Lindell had actually been the catalyst who further emboldened the fake prez; to the point where Trump opted to stage his (fortunately failed) coup d’état on January 6, 2021.
It was shortly thereafter, that Lindell who, up to that moment, had been running his successful pillow business, discovered, the hard way, that whatever Donny touches always turns to shit.
Indeed, what Mikey had failed to realize is that the mashup of pillow manufacturing and political machinating can only be catastrophic.
Or, to flesh that out, the blow back, here, is how home improvement businesses will no longer stock MyPillow products, which discerning, principled, real American shoppers will no longer purchase. After all, who the F would ever show respect for a traitor who tried to overthrow America?
At least for the time being, Lindell is currently profiteering off the radical right wing noise machine. These disseminators of ferocious conspiracy theories, masquerading as news, are still welcoming Mikey.
But, seeing how the duly pissed off voting machine manufacturers have been routinely slapping lawsuits against Newsmax, OAN and FOX et al (as well as their dumb as a stump, Trump suck up talking heads), Mikey could, rightfully so, soon be going down with the shipwrecked Donny.
