If there has ever been a story that sounds like it’s straight from the satire site The Babylon Bee, this is it. David Hogg, a “survivor” of the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, who went on to become a gun-control activist and an “expert” on pretty much everything else, has announced the launch of a pillow company to compete with MyPillow, founded by CEO Mike Lindell, an avid supporter of Donald Trump.

The 20-year-old Hogg said in a Thursday tweet he’s teaming up with 26-year-old software engineer William LeGate in an effort to create a “progressive pillow company.”

“William LeGate and I are going to prove that progressives can make a better pillow run a better business, and help make the world a better place while doing it.”

“Progressive pillows.” Wanna bet they promise more than they deliver?

Hogg tweeted about Lindell “commenting on his soon to be progressive competition,” as if Lindell is concerned. Yeah, no. What Lindell did tell Axios was simply: “Good for them. Nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone’s patent.”

“Mike ‘the my pillow [sic] guy’ is commenting on his soon to be progressive competition in the form of a progressive pillow company @williamlegate and I are starting.”

“This pillow fight just got very real,” Hogg tweeted. Catchy.

Among the multiple tweets Hogg fired off was one in which he announced “key parts of the company,” in a shot at both Lindell and Trump.

Key parts of the company

-Union made in America to create good jobs that support American families.

-Have an emphasis on supporting progressive causes

Not attempt a white supremacist overthrow of the United States government

“So you can sleep at night.” With a “sleepy” emoji. Cute.

Lindell became somewhat of a mainstay in the news in the aftermath of the election, from reportedly urging Trump to declare martial law, to lawsuit threats from Dominion voting systems, to a crazy interview on Newsmax TV — to MyPillow products discontinued by major retailers. And like Trump, his Twitter account has been permanently suspended.

Oh — I almost forgot. Hogg has already run into a bit of a snag.

No doubt Mr. Know-it-All will get that pesky little problem out the way in no time.

And then? Let the pillow fight begin! For real.

Babylon Bee, you ain’t got nothin’ on real-life craziness.
