David Hogg says he's starting his own pillow company to challenge MyPillow founder and ardent Trump supporter Mike Lindell.

To remind, Hogg, a former Parkland student who wasn’t actually at the school during the school’s infamous 2017 mass shooting, is the obnoxious teen-turned-anti-2A activist who used his liberal media-provided platform to call for a whole lot of policy changes to gun rights that he didn’t actually understand.

Lindell, on the other hand, is the CEO of a multi-million-dollar pillow company and a vocal Trump supporter who has pushed election fraud theories and was one of President Trump's final visitors to the Oval Office. Both Lindell and his company also recently got kicked off of Twitter, though it's not clear what platform policy they're supposed to have violated to earn being permanently banned.

To combat the pillow-maker he claims is a "white supremacist," Hogg, 20, is now taking his total lack of expertise into the pillow world, where he says he’ll try out his hand at thread counts and proper neck support.

“[William LeGate] and I can and will run a better business and make a better product all with more happy staff than Mike the pillow guy while creating US based Union jobs and helping people. This pillow fight is just getting started,” Hogg blasted out on Twitter Thursday.

Hogg and his partner, software developer William LeGate, say they’re launching the company in the next six months and hope to sell $1 million of product in their first year.

Of course, what Hogg likely knows as much about pillows as he does about firearms – which is to say, not much.

And according to Axios, Mike Lindell and his famous pillow company aren’t worried about Hogg’s latest venture, telling Axios in a text Thursday morning, "Good for them.... nothing wrong with competition that does not infringe on someone's patent."
