I don't think the pillow guy is just a grifter

I think he is actually insane , not pretending to be for the benefit of the magats. He really believes his own delusions. I just saw on CNN a segment about his cyber summit and how it went. This guy should be led away in a straight jacket.

2. Likely his pillow business is losing money and he's flailing around,

making poor decisions. His ego won't accept that he could be wrong in his political assumptions.

That would drive one insane.

8. Agreed....the man is not well.

If anyone in the Republican Party agreed, they'd be taking him aside and tell him to stop the BS. Thing is, a growing majority of elected Republicans are using the Big Lie to suppress Democratic votes. I hope the reap what they sow.....at some point it will be Democrats vs. a shrinking collection of whackjobs.

11. If 'margarine' is wonderfully fine with people succumbing to this covid as she has so clearly

said out loud, why would any of her ilk want to intervene and help this batty guy?

I just cannot wrap my head around how sick it has all precipitated to.

27. It Is

By the numbers, public and semiprivate.
His revenues were $152 million in 2019. The operating margins were a bit under 23%, or around $34.5 million.
The SG&A, which by industry standard is 8% of revenues.
We're down to $22.5 million.
Now, we've got debt service based on around $125 million of loans. 4% interest is $5 million and the repayment cash, assuming 20 year depreciation time on equipment & buildings, & typical terms of 60% or 12 years, is another $10 million. There was only $5.5 million in profit, before taxes and reinvestment.
After losing Walmart, Target, BB&B, & others, revenues are down 30%. Even this brain damaged crack addict admitted that.
Expenses exceed revenue & with a D/E of over 4.8, new borrowing will be hard to come by.
He's in big financial trouble.
That's why I think somebody else is funding him. He's nowhere near as rich as he pretends to be.

and is forced to pay a princely sum vfc in damages, oh yeah, he'll be back on the pipe for sure.

Couldn't happen to a more idiotic person (save one particular Orange fellow).

6. It is way past time for his family to have an intervention with him.

Maybe it is even time to go to court and ask for a psych eval to determine competency.
And try to save any assets that are left for his treatment and long term care.

7. Yes imagine that. Britney Spears can't shake out her conservatorship

And meanwhile Lindell is allowed to melt away in public. it says a lot about the difference between how men and women are treated in this country when it comes to mental health.

25. A white, male, Republican can get away with criminality or insanity.

Especially if you are a high level elected official, or have donated a lot of money to elected officials.

10. He could always turn his talents into evangelical preaching

He's got a big mouth and he can talk a whole lot if gibberish for hours. He just has to pepper his rants with a few scriptures here and there and he'd rake in the money from these rubes.

When you start with a false premise and keep rearranging reality to match your false premise, insanity is almost unavoidable.

Which just makes him an idiot. Who was he throwing all his cash to over the last 9 months?

See my post, #27.
He doesn't have the cash to do this.
He's a crazy guy front for some dark money, I think.

30. Might Be True

He claims to be worth $300 million.
A couple months ago, I some digging.
That number is at least inflated by a factor of 12.
Also, some of the loans acquired after D/E hit 3, are probably, at least in part, personally backed.
If he spent $5 million of his own cash, the idiot lenders are going to take a beating.
But, a guy who lies about his net worth, inflating it by 1,100%, is also capable of lying about where that $5 million came from.

Every time I've heard him talk, whether it was about the election or COVID snake oil, he's been like that.

31. Chump knows how to use people - especial rich ones

This guy is a target, nothing more. Rich, stupid, willing to risk it all for Chump.
Hitler had a similar scam, it worked out great for him.
