This morning the President tweeted about a press conference to discuss challenges to election results,
Lawyers Press Conference at Four Seasons, Philadelphia. 11:00 A.M.
My first thoughts were,
- Trump’s lawyers are staying at the Four Seasons?
- While the campaign is seeking to raise donor dollars to fund his challenges?
The Four Seasons Hotel in Downtown Philadelphia found itself in an awkward position. Not wanting to be at the center of controversy they tweeted to make clear that they weren’t hosting this event.
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.

Yes – the event, it turns out, wasn’t booked at the Four Seasons hotel. It was booked at a different Four Seasons on the outskirts of Philadelphia, 10 miles north on I-95: Four Seasons Total Landscaping.
Trump replaced his original tweet with the new location.
Big press conference today in Philadelphia at Four Seasons Total Landscaping — 11:30am!

As you can imagine, given the stakes involved and the rancor over the election, this landscaping business’s Yelp page is under attack.
So what is the Four Seasons Total Landscaping event space like? You can immediately see why the campaign selected it. It’s next to an adult bookstore and across the street from a crematorium.
Giuliani refused to concede without a fight and promised to bring a slew of new lawsuits Monday challenging the vote-counting process in Philadelphia. He said the litigation “will eventually be a big case,” spanning beyond Pennsylvania. https://t.co/rCwVAhGMlm pic.twitter.com/cddNoWD2Zi

The best part of this has to be the phone call from the Trump campaign advance team, dialing up the Four Seasons in Philadelphia. “Hello, Four Seasons, how can we help you?” “Do you have availability for an event at 11:30 a.m.?” “Yes, we have space available.” “We won’t need catering, would you be willing to do it for a flat $10,000.00?”
