As former President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani earned a reputation for bumbling antics like butt dialing reporters and being caught—quite literally—with his pants down by Borat.
But few of Giuliani's gaffes went more viral than a press conference at the start of Trump's months-long effort to undo the results of the 2020 election, which Trump and Giuliani falsely claimed was "stolen" by Democrats through widespread election fraud.
Back in November, the Trump campaign mistakenly believed it had booked a press conference at the Four Seasons hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In a humiliating blunder, the campaign had actually booked the Four Seasons Total Landscaping company.

There was, however, one winner in the debacle: Four Seasons Total Landscaping, which soon began selling tee shirts alluding to the snafu.
Flash forward to this week.
FBI officials executed a search warrant of Giuliani's apartment, seizing his electronics and raiding his home. The raid was seen as an escalation of the probe into Giuliani's dealings with Ukraine—a probe which began in the Trump era and saw significant delays from senior officials in then-Attorney General William Barr's Justice Department.
Upon the news that the raid had finally been carried out, Four Seasons Total Landscaping offered the perfect response.

In a lengthy statement, Giuliani's lawyer chalked the raid up to "Trump Derangement Syndrome."
