Of all the characters that came into the spotlight during the Trump era, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell may be the most bizarre. How exactly he became a political operative with access to the White House isn’t clear but the more we see of Lindell, the more Jimmy Kimmel loves it.

Lindell appeared at multiple rallies for President Donald Trump and was invited to several events at the White House over the past four years. Like many of the former president’s supporters, Lindell has echoed several falsehoods about the pandemic and the 2020 election.

In the final days of President Trump’s administration, Lindell was photographed outside of the Oval Office. He was seen with notes outlining a plan for President Trump to stay in power, including suggesting martial law be declared and that the Capitol riot was organized by foreign powers.

Lindell was back in the news after he was banned from Twitter for spreading lies about the election. His attempt to tweet from the official MyPillow account resulted in another ban. When he was invited onto Newsmax to discuss cancel culture, things quickly went off the rails.

Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue last night recapped the appearance and had several punchlines at Lindell’s expense. According to Kimmel, the more he sees of Lindell the more he loves the MyPillow guy.

Jimmy Kimmel points out that even Newsmax was smart enough to pull the plug on Mike Lindell’s election fraud rant. The news outlet has been sued by Dominion Voting Systems for spreading the same kind of conspiracies that the MyPillow guy was yelling about.

Some people may not be thrilled about Kimmel referencing Lindell’s troubled past but for the late night host, it’s all fair game. Kimmel would argue that Lindell’s mission to overturn democracy means that there is no line that can’t be crossed.

As a fan of conspiracy theories, Lindell could at least appreciate Kimmel coming up with one of his own. Kimmel joked that sleeping on a MyPillow may have a direct effect on one’s perception of reality.

Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t the only one piling on the MyPillow guy

Jimmy Kimmel is clearly entertained by Mike Lindell and his very public spiral. But Jimmy Kimmel Live! isn’t the only late night show that finds Lindell amusing.

Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live returned and gave fans its take on the MyPillow guy. He appeared at the “Weekend Update” desk played by Beck Bennett. Check out the clip below:

Hopefully, we’ve seen the last of the MyPillow guy. His pal President Trump is gone, Twitter has banned him, and Newsmax wants nothing to do with him. It may mean a little less entertainment for Jimmy Kimmel but the comedian would probably take that deal.
