Trump Promised ‘Big’ Press Conference At The Four Seasons … Landscaping Office

President Donald Trump announced on Saturday morning a “big press conference today in Philadelphia” to be held by his legal team later in the day, which is likely to be another sideshow in his quest to invalidate the votes that will cost him the crucial swing state. Pretty predictable (yet no less alarming) stuff at this point.

What people are having trouble wrapping their head around right now is the downright bizarre location Trump chose for the presser.

First, Trump tweeted that the press conference would be held at the Four Seasons, a swanky hotel in downtown Philly. But he quickly corrected the record:

“Big press conference today in Philadelphia at Four Seasons Total Landscaping — 11:30am!” the President tweeted.

So no, not the swanky Four Seasons hotel. “Four Seasons Total Landscaping,” which is a landscaping company’s small office building in a drab industrial area of town. The actual Four Seasons hotel wants to make sure you know that.

“To clarify, President Trump’s press conference will NOT be held at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia,” the hotel tweeted. “It will be held at Four Seasons Total Landscaping— no relation with the hotel.”

Uh, what?
