Nearly two weeks ago, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer—Rudy Giuliani—held a press conference where he continued to repeat Trump's lies that widespread voter fraud tipped the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden.

But Giuliani's false claims were overshadowed by a major gaffe regarding the presser's venue.

Ahead of the press conference, Trump tweeted that it would be held at Four Seasons Philadelphia, the luxury hotel. Trump soon deleted the tweet, replacing it with the announcement that Giuliani would be speaking instead at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Company.

It was soon clear that the Trump campaign mistakenly booked the landscaping company under the impression that it was the Four Seasons hotel.

While Four Seasons Total Landscaping received widespread publicity and even began selling merchandise alluding to the gaffe, the Trump campaign still hasn't been able to live down the mockery.

On Thursday, the President announced that he would be holding an "Important News Conference" at the RNC at noon.

Even two weeks later, jokes alluding to the Four Seasons Total Landscaping fiasco came pouring in.

While Trump promised the presser would lay out a "very clear and viable path to victory," others noted a separate event happening around the same time.

The state of Georgia went blue this election for the first time since 1992, much to Trump's chagrin. The margin was close enough to prompt the state to issue a recount, which Trump falsely claims doesn't include signature verification and is thereby meaningless.

Officials in the state are expected to confirm Biden's win, leading some to think the presser is a means to distract from that announcement.

In addition to losing the Electoral College, Trump is also on track to lose the popular vote by nearly six million votes.
