Published by

People like Rudy Giuliani and Jared Kushner were given major roles. And somehow, a pillow entrepreneur and former crack addict also became a part of Trump’s circle.

bad at marketing, you don’t understand. He’s great at marketing ideas, great at branding—unbelievable brander. Obviously great at messaging because he’s the best gaslighter in history. But horrible at how marketing works—how to buy TV ads, how digital works. He doesn’t understand.”

And while Lindell might have failed here, he is still all in on Team Trump. The pillow guy is still telling anyone who listen that he will get the election results overturned.
