The swing state of Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes have been a major focus of President Donald Trump's and his legal team's efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, in which President-elect Joe Biden defeated Trump to win the White House.

The President's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, went viral for a bumbling press conference in the state earlier this month. Trump announced to his nearly 90 million Twitter followers that Giuliani and other Trump allies would be addressing reporters at the Four Seasons Philadelphia.

Instead of the luxury hotel, the campaign mistakenly booked the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Company, resulting in a bizarre press conference between a crematorium and a sex shop.

On Tuesday, the state of Pennsylvania certified its election results, dealing another devastating blow to the campaign's quixotic effort to subvert millions of legally cast ballots.

But that hasn't stopped the Trump campaign from continuing to tell its supporters that all is not lost.

In a recent press release, the campaign announced that the Pennsylvania State Senate would hold a hearing on voting irregularities in the state.

It turns out that's not entirely true.

Watch MSNBC's Rachel Maddow explain below.

The "hearing" is not a hearing at all. It's not held in the Pennsylvania Statehouse or even in Pennsylvania's capital city. The "hearing" is a presentation from Giuliani to solely Republican state legislators in a Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg.

Once again, the Trump campaign's efforts were mocked.





Despite Trump's efforts, the race in Pennsylvania—and in the nation—is over.




Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th.
