3. The funny thing is...

Milliken completely stops making commercial products and converts its entire plant to produce PPE, and they get a minute on the local TV news.

Fanatics completely stops making baseball uniforms and not only converts its entire plant to produce PPE but also dedicates every square inch of MLB-owned official uniform fabric to PPE production, and they get a short story on MLBís own website.

GM ceases production of automotive electronics so they can loan their factory to a ventilator manufacturer, and hires a shitload of temporary assemblers so they can make even more ventilators, and they decide to make the ventilators at cost, and they get their ass chewed by the president because they arenít doing the work in a state Trump needs to win to be reelected.

But Mike Lindell merely cuts production of the pillows he makes so he can repurpose part of his factory to make PPE, and he gets an audience with the president. Yes, you heard that correctly: Lindell is still making pillows and selling them.
