Rudy Giuliani, one of former Republican President Donald Trump's personal attorneys and reported closest confidantes, is back to his deeply weird antics. This time he's got something to sell you, in the literal sense.
During an hour-plus-long video on his YouTube channel—which he titled Common Sense without an ounce of irony—Giuliani claimed the Pentagon was about to release proof aliens exist. He took time out several times to flog MyPillow, the pillow company of problematic Trump pal Mike Lindell.
Yes, the man who was once dubbed "America's Mayor" for his actions on September 11, 2001 is now flogging a conspiracy theorist's pillows—and towels, and slippers—on his YouTube show.
Giuliani's effusive ad for MyPillow came during a lengthy diatribe about UFOs. His latest Common Sense episode included an interview with UFO expert Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator for the U.K.'s defense ministry who believes UFOs are a national security threat.
You can watch the full video here (or you can see the MyPillow highlights later in this article):
Giuliani made sure to praise former President Trump, who for some reason included a demand the Pentagon release a report on UFOs in one of last year's pandemic relief packages.
But it was Lindell's MyPillow products that seemed to get Giuliani's most effusive praise. He seemed barely able to contain his excitement over Lindell's expansion into the slipper market.
Giuliani and Lindell have much more than a love of pillows and slippers in common.
They are both die-hard supporters of Donald Trump, both boosters of the former President's multiple conspiracy theories about the 2020 election and both believe sincerely—so it seems, at least—Democratic President Joe Biden is not really President despite almost 8 million more people voting for him and poll numbers that easily eclipsed Trump's.
Speaking of that conspiracy theory, the two share one other most unique similarity. They are both defendants in billion-dollar defamation lawsuits by Dominion Voting Systems, the voting software company they accused of helping Biden "cheat" his way into the White House.
Perhaps they're planning to share the profits from Giuliani's MyPillow ads to fund their legal defenses?
Whatever is going on here, Twitter had a field day with this deeply weird MyPillow ad.
