I have written about Jimmy Kimmel’s “fascination” with Mike Lindell. Kimmel has made fun of the pillow magnate plenty on his show. That’s one thing. Like it or not, Lindell is a somewhat prominent figure and more than worthy of public tongue-lashing (phrasing). Still, Kimmel inviting him on his show, essentially giving him a bigger platform for his pathological lies, was a step too far.

At first, I was annoyed that Kimmel had shared a clip of Lindell on Twitter with the caption, “some days I really miss work.” Give me a break! For the love of Zod, can we just let this man disappear into his Cozi TV commercials? He doesn’t need the attention!

Well, it turns out I was quick to judge. Kimmel’s hand was forced here. It wasn’t Kimmel who was leaning on an unnecessary obsession. Instead, Lindell prompted the notice by doing what he does best: bungle a big press conference/conference/scam. Lindell, while holding a summit to bilk money out of idiots, asked his people to roll the tape. They just rolled the wrong one.

I can’t blame Kimmel for this one. If the strike wasn’t happening, Kimmel would likely be on vacation because it’s August, and he usually takes that month off (which I respect the hell out of). But, if it was a different month, this is the exact stuff that Lindell should be made fun of for. Is Lindell using the clip of himself on Kimmel for the exact reasons I was nervous about? Probably! But this wouldn’t be an article about Lindell without being depressing!
