MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell punched back at far-left CNN reporter Jim Acosta after the journalist accused Lindell of a "PR stunt" for appearing at the White House.
Lindell was brought up by President Donald Trump on Monday at the press conference where he stated that he would be making 50,000 face masks per day to help combat the coronavirus pandemic.
Instead of praising Lindell for the kind gesture, left-wing media outlets hammered him.
"These briefings could be better designed. President Trump could come out, say a few words – not have these PR stunts like Mr. Pillow coming out and getting a plug for his company – and let us hear more from Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci," Acosta said on CNN.
On Tuesday evening, Lindell joined Fox Business host Lou Dobbs to discuss the fallout from his appearance at the press conference.
“You mentioned God, you have the Bible writ large behind you, I suspect all around you, as people of faith do,” Dobbs said to Lindell as he played a clip from MSNBC’s Chris Hayes' show.
“Wow,” Dobbs said, “The pillow guy reading the Bible.”
“I’ll tell you what, I heard Jim Acosta attack me too, and he was 10 feet from me in the Rose Garden,” Lindell replied. “This is just evil, Lou. This is evil.”
“This president has been the best man in charge for such a time as this,” he added. “It’s just those newscasters, those journalists, and we know who they are. I’m going to say, CNN, what they did to me, I’m sorry, I put on a message of hope to the country that God had given us grace on November 8, 2016, a nation that turned its back on God, and right now we’re part of this big revival.”
“I’m appalled by the journalists that I see there,” Lindell finished. “I used to think that, they are not really that evil. Well yes, they are.”
Liberals all across America were furious that Lindell was at the press conference and announced that he would be providing 50,000 face masks.

CNN even cut away from the press conference after he announced his powerful new initiative:
However, level-headed Twitter users rightly praised Lindell for using his factories to produce N95 masks:
