In a bizarre and confusing incident, incumbent President Donald Trump held a press conference that he said will be ‘big’ at a car parking nestled nicely between a porn shop and crematorium, of a garden called Four Seasons Total Landscaping.
Trump made the announcement on Twitter while he was out playing golf on Saturday morning when votes were counted, and many major US media predicted Joe Biden as the 46th US President.
He wrote: “Big press conference today in Philadelphia at Four Seasons Total Landscaping — 11:30am!”
But the venue announced by Mr. Trump sparked confusion thanks to the synonymity with a luxury hotel chain called the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia, prompting the hotel chain to issue a clarification statement.
As per The Washington Post, Trump has since deleted the original tweet. “Lawyers Press Conference at Four Seasons, Philadelphia. 11:00 A.M,” he wrote in the tweet has since been deleted.
“To clarify, President Trump’s press conference will NOT be held at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia,” the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia located at Comcast Center wrote in a tweet ahead of the press conference.
“It will be held at Four Seasons Total Landscaping — no relation with the hotel.”
What incumbent President Trump referred to as the venue of the conference is Four Seasons Total Landscaping, which is a suburban business situated amid a crematorium and an adult bookstore on the outskirts of Philadelphia.
The press conference was held by Trump’s lawyer Giuliani in the aftermath of Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 Presidential election after he won the key state of Pennsylvania that fetched him the remaining electoral votes to win the Presidency.
In the press conference, Giuliani continued the false and baseless rhetoric of voters fraud without offering any evidence. The conference comes after Trump has since Biden won did not concede the election and has vowed legal actions.
Trump’s team did not address the confusion they stirred with the name of the venue, nor did they clarify where was the venue actually intended, nonetheless social media caught hold of the farse.
Several lawsuits are live in states like Nevada, Georgia, and others over allegations the votes were illegal and stolen, none of which is true and confirmed by officials.
Thousands of people on social media started to draw hilarious analogies and memes with Trump’s press conference in what is being seen as the lingering trials to hang on to the White House further.
“Some say the world will end in fire/ Others say at Four Seasons Total Landscaping north of the Tacony-Palmyra bridge, near the porn shop,” CNN’s Jape Tapper wrote, garnering some over 80k likes and over 11k retweets, at the time of writing.
