A holiday weekend in America means celebrating what we love most: sales. The former mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, who never opts for pretty much anything, strikes while the market is hot – by promoting discounted foam sandals on Twitter.
“Great products at reasonable prices. Use the Rudy code for additional savings,” President Trump’s former personal lawyer tweeted late Thursday night, along with a patriotic graphic resembling a spam post you might come across on your distant cousin’s hacked Facebook page with multiple styles of slip-on sandals from the bedding and apparel brand MyPillow. (Giuliani is close to MyPillow’s founder and CEO Mike Lindell, who supported Giuliani and Trump’s allegations of fraud in the 2020 election.) The sandals, the graphic says, are regularly priced at $ 79.98, but with the promotional code “RUDY”, you can buy them for only $ 49.98.
Giuliani – who has gone deeper into professional and cosmic free fall in even just the last few daysafter making both allegations of begging for a presidential pardon during the House Committee hearings on 6 January, and an alleged slap from a stranger inside a Staten Island supermarket – has tweeted several times since posting the ad shortly after 10pm Eastern last night, putting the likelihood of his Twitter account being hacked beyond any reasonable doubt.
He also currently has limited public responses to his tweets, but so far none of his potential mutual has the answer to the ad. All told for Giuliani, it seems like another day
snake oil shoe sales, another dollar.
