Maddow Blog Team Trump's Four Seasons Fiasco will be tough to forget

Ordinarily, the important parts of a press conference are its participants and their comments. But every once in a while, the location of a press conference is what stands out.

On Saturday, for example, Donald Trump's political/legal operation announced that Rudy Giuliani would deliver remarks at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia to discuss his latest schemes. Indeed, the president tweeted to his followers, "Lawyers News Conference Four Seasons, Philadelphia. 11:00 a.m."

To be sure, the Republican's lawyer did, in fact, appear before the cameras and peddle some strange conspiracy theories. They were, however, easily overlooked -- not just because Giuliani's claims were foolish, but also because of the unusual venue for his nonsense.

Those who saw Trump's tweet and assumed the former mayor would appear at an upscale hotel in Philly were mistaken. Giuliani instead spoke at Four Seasons Total Landscaping. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported:

What began five years ago with the made-for-TV announcement of Donald Trump's presidential ambitions from the escalator of his ritzy Manhattan high-rise ended Saturday with his aging lawyer shouting conspiracy theories and vowing lawsuits in a Northeast Philadelphia parking lot, near a sex shop and a crematorium.

4. Four Seasons Total Landscaping has merch now

Get 'em while they're hot! I can't wait to put their sticker on my car, I don't care what their politics are as a business.

They're wasting no time in cashing in on it, which I also find hilarious. They'll be famous forever now.

5. 4 years into their White House gig and they're still

that incompetent, if not even worse. This is not the A Team folks, it's not the varsity team or even a farm team, this is the Trump Team, a collection of unqualified third tier, nincompoops.

6. Can I book a conference room?

"I have you down for the 20th, keep in mind you have to be cleared out by the time the garage door opens, the forklift needs to move sod in and out."

7. My favorite has been the comment about it being near the sex shop and crematorium

"Fitting, considering the country just told him to fuck off and die."
