Rudy Giuliani Is Shilling $50 MyPillow Flip-Flops on Twitter
A holiday weekend in America means celebrating the thing we love most: sales. Never one to opt out of pretty much anything, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani is striking while the market’s hot—by promoting discounted foam sandals on Twitter.
