It appears that college student/gun control activist David Hogg has discovered that running a business is a lot harder than running your mouth, so after just a few months, he’s already exited the “progressive” pillow company he created to drive MyPillow (and somehow, Fox News) out of business.
The fact that he announced that he is releasing all his shares in a pillow company that not only doesn’t have shares, it doesn’t even have pillows, was not a good sign that he’s learned enough about business yet to open a lemonade stand. His partner claims that he will somehow soldier on without Hogg’s invaluable contributions and will begin manufacturing their so-called “GoodPillows” as soon they figure out how to obtain a trademark or how or where to make pillows. Although I don’t know why anyone would want a pillow that’s guaranteed not to let you rest easy because, whoever you are, you’re a racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic Nazi.
If you’d like to relive this hilarious leftwing pipe dream from the start, here’s Jim Treacher’s February column at PJ Media that showed what happens when you convince yourself that having a Twitter account means you actually know things.
Best part: when Hogg asked for suggestions for a good place to locate the factory, he said, “States that are not California (cost of living is too high.)” Gee, I wonder why?! Try a red state like Texas or Florida, where they don’t impose so many taxes and regulations that it’s like smothering start-up businesses with a pillow.
