Re: Orange is the new President

I mean, it really couldn't have happened to a nicer guy... Commenting on the report, Ken Frydman, who worked as Giuliani’s press secretary in the 1990s, said: “Lay down with dogs. Wake up with fleas and without $20,000 a day”. I do wonder what happened to Giuliani, though. He was never a good guy, ...
