As he continued to be in a state of denial about the impending results of the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump teased a "big" press conference at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia on Twitter Saturday morning.
"Lawyers Press Conference at Four Seasons, Philadelphia. 11:00 A.M," he wrote. The tweet has since been deleted and replaced with a very important clarification about the actual location.
Big press conference today in Philadelphia at Four Seasons Total Landscaping — 11:30am!

Turns out, Trump's lawyers were going to be speaking at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, a business located in the outskirts of Philadelphia, and nestled nicely between an adult bookstore and a cremation center. The unusual setting had many people asking the obvious question.
I feel like we didn’t focus enough on the fact that someone in the Trump campaign meant to schedule the “four seasons hotel” but definitely accidentally scheduled this “four seasons landscaping” store and they had to follow through with it. Veep was not this good. pic.twitter.com/DTJIQGsKHG

Is Donald Trump convening the world's press at a small landscaping company on the outskirts of Philadelphia? pic.twitter.com/9P8KYqNerg

The Trump campaign's possible scheduling error was dragged on Twitter.
In case you missed it, the Trump campaign called a press conference this morning in the parking lot of "Four Seasons Total Landscaping" in Philadelphia. The assumption is that they meant to book the Four Seasons hotel but made a mistake and just went with it. Seriously. https://t.co/K0w7wqoUs1

In my estimation, the Four Seasons Total Landscaping incident is the most hilarious thing ever to happen in human history — so hilarious that we are unable to comprehend it right now. In three days, we will all just break out in laughter for 12 hours straight. https://t.co/rZd3U3ef64

This is not over. For we shall mount our righteous stand at Four Seasons Total Landscaping. Next to Fantasy Island Adult Books. Across the street from the Delaware Valley Cremation Center. Between the fire extinguisher and yellow hose. #MAGA pic.twitter.com/hxuAsbEjXi

This Four Seasons mixup is just amazing. Like this can't be real life can it? This is all just scripted for our entertainment. They thought they were booking the Four Seasons hotel - but instead booked Four Seasons Total Landscaping and just ran with it? Man. https://t.co/vXGEP2yUp3

Rudy Guiliani, next to a garden hose, saying the president will not concede. He is at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping company between a porn store and a funeral parlour in Philadephia because the campaign accidentally booked this venue instead of the Four Seasons hotel! 🤣 pic.twitter.com/GkeWu25ViJ

As the last tweet mentioned, Guiliani said Trump will not concede the election, and vowed to unfurl a barrage of legal challenges to try and delegitimize Biden's victory. But if their efforts are anything like their ability to book a press conference at the right location, then they have no hope.
As if the mistake wasn't embarrassing enough, Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia even issued a clarification on Twitter.
To clarify, President Trump’s press conference will NOT be held at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia.
It will be held at Four Seasons Total Landscaping— no relation with the hotel.
