The My Pillow Guy Is Making Surgical Masks ... and the Media Is PISSED?!
Liberals have been crying for Donald Trump to use the Defense Production Act (DPA). This is where the government demands that private companies stop what they're doing and make things for a crisis, like, say, the coronavirus pandemic (see Bill de Blasio Gets Called Out for Being a Failure in Handling Coronavirus [VIDEO] and Dr. Birx Says Initial Doom and Gloom COVID-19 Predictions Don't Reflect Reality). Trump, instead of enforcing the DPA, has been working WITH private industry, encouraging companies to join the cause instead of demanding it by federal decree. One of the many who have stepped up is Mike Lindell, aka the My Pillow guy.
My Pillow Guy is making 10,000 surgical masks per day and is hoping to ramp that up to 50,000 masks per day by the end of the week.— JERRY DUNLEAVY (@JERRY DUNLEAVY)1585604219.0
This, you would think, is a good thing. Private companies are "doing their civic duty." Every day we hear that we need supplies. The My Pillow guy is repurposing his factories to help supply that need. But here's how the liberal media reported on it yesterday. Remember, these are the same people who are shocked to find out that so many Americans hate their entire industry and think they all suck at life.
Trump just called the “My Pillow” guy up to the podium in the Rose Garden. You cannot make this stuff up.— Ali Velshi (@Ali Velshi)1585603989.0
In case you were wondering what My Pillow is doing in a time of coronavirus. https://t.co/W3ocMJe7Ym— Ram Ramgopal (@Ram Ramgopal)1585604584.0
I’m a proponent of TV carrying Trump’s presser. But allowing corporations to use them as advertising platforms seem… https://t.co/cIxkaicYoJ— Sam Stein (@Sam Stein)1585604275.0

Let me make sure I get this straight. Donald Trump should use the power of the federal government to force private companies to do something. Trump partners with them instead. CEO and other millionaires and billionaires step up to help produce the equipment we need. The media, in turn, mocks Trump and the CEOs for doing so.
Remember, the national press is NOT the enemy of the people. But businesses are?
