David Hogg is a survivor of the Parkland School shooting in Florida and became famous for launching the March for Our Lives gun control movement.
He’s rallied students together to try to get more restrictions on firearms and claiming this would somehow stop psychotic murderers from doing school shootings.
Recently Hogg has been back in the news when he announced that he’s working together with a software developer called William LeGate to found a new pillow company. Hogg says his new bedtime endeavor will put pro-Trump MyPillow boss Mike Lindell out of business.
MyPillows are terrible, and I'm sure whatever David Hogg comes out with will also be terrible, nobody was asking for a pillow that aligns with their political beliefs were they?

What’s Hogg’s Plan?
Hogg says his goal is to sell $1 million worth of pillows in year one and he plans to start up the company by around this August.
“We would like to do it sooner but we have strict guidelines on sustainability and US based Union producers,” Hogg said, adding that “Mike isn’t going to know what hit him—this pillow fight is just getting started.”
While it seems a little juvenile to start a pillow company when you’re attending Harvard just to stick it to a pro-Trump businessman, I’m sure that Hogg and his college buddies are laughing it up and will come up with some imaginative liberal slogans for their pillows.
As for Lindell, he said it’s all good with him and he welcomes the competition.
“Good for them,” Lindell said. “Nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone’s patent.”
Why is Hogg Going After Lindell and MyPillow?
Lindell has been in the news a lot lately and has become a favorite target of progressives for two main reasons. One: he supports President Trump and is a conservative businessman who is a classic success story of coming back from drug addiction and poverty to achieve enormous success. Liberals hate that.
Two: Lindell has been very vocal about his belief that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump which is really ticking off people like Hogg who are certain that the election was fair and that people like Lindell are stupid rabble rouser conspiracy theorists.
Lindell particularly raised eyebrows recently in a Newsmax interview where he tried to talk about why his Twitter account had been shut down, saying it was because he was exposing evidence for voter fraud. The Newsmax anchor cut off Lindell repeatedly, telling him to be quiet and stop talking about voter fraud and repeating that Newsmax had found no proof of voter machine error with Dominion voting machines.
Newsmax has been changing their tune on voter fraud ever since Dominion threatened them with a massive lawsuit for spreading or allowing any mention of voter fraud through their machines.
Lindell has also been ordered to stop saying their machines are fraudulent and Dominion says they will sue him if he doesn’t stop.
“I want Dominion to put up their lawsuit because we have 100% evidence that China and other countries used their machines to steal the election,” Lindell said.
I don’t know about you, but after all this drama I feel like I could use a good night’s sleep. Which will it be, a Hogg Pillow or a MyPillow? I think a lot of conservatives and people who are not impressed with Hogg will go buy even more MyPillows – or another kind of pillow entirely – when they see the kind of trouble this young activist is constantly trying to stir up and get attention for.
In any case, at least it’s good for a laugh.
Who has some good names for Hogg’s new venture? What should he call his pillow company?
