Trump-loving MyPillow CEO threatens to sue CNN host over trainwreck interview

Mike Lindell and Anderson Cooper appear on CNN (screen grab)

Mike Lindell, the Trump-loving CEO of MyPillow, is threatening to sue Anderson Cooper after the CNN host last month called him out for peddling bogus COVID-19 therapeutics.

Newsweek reports that attorney L. Lin Wood sent a letter to CNN threatening “legal redress” unless Cooper retracted his claim that Lindell was a “snake oil salesman” for pushing Oleandrin, an unproven treatment for COVID-19 that experts warn could be toxic.

“While I am fully aware that Cooper’s sarcastic, mocking, derisive, and demeaning tone, attitude and facial expressions toward Mr. Lindell are not legally actionable, I have complete confidence that Cooper’s false and defamatory accusations are actionable,” he wrote in his letter.

During the interview with Lindell, Cooper repeatedly assailed the MyPillow CEO’s credentials.

“You don’t have a medical background, you’re not a scientist, yet you’re claiming this substance, which has not been studied in any meaningful way, can cure COVID,” he said. “And you have a financial stake in the company. You would profit from it if this is being sold widely. Morally, is that right?”

In his letter, Wood claims that Cooper was incorrect about testing for the drug, and said that he used that false assertion to “cast aspersions on Mr. Lindell’s character and reputation.”

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle: The markets finally realized the economic crisis is linked to the health crisis

MSNBC market expert Stephanie Ruhle told Brian Williams on Wednesday that the reason Americans saw the stock market fall this week is that they have finally realized that things aren't getting any better.

Williams asked if the numbers this week are different from normal pre-election years.

"This is quite different," said Ruhle. "The markets have woken up to the fact that this health crisis is directly linked to the economic crisis. The markets can't thrive when we don't have a national plan to deal with the coronavirus. And you look at the GDP, you know that tomorrow, you led the show with it, the president is going to say, 'We're back, baby! With the greatest economy ever.' That's not the case. We have been seeing improvements. We are on the road to recovery. But even if we get 30 percent, 35 percent GDP, which would be positive, it's far from saying we're back."

Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.

While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.
