Is Donald Trump convening the world's press at a small landscaping company on the outskirts of Philadelphia? Image
I called the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia to check and the press conference really is being held at a landscaping company.
I’ve arrived at Four Seasons Landscaping. It’s next to an adult book store called Fantasy Island. ImageImage
We’re now queuing up to go inside Four Seasons Total Landscaping to hear from the president’s lawyers, as we appear close to a call from Pennsylvania which could decide the election, is a sentence I’d never thought I would write.
There is a very real possibility we have a made for Hollywoood moment when the world’s press starts filtering out of this press conference because the race has been called.
This is the scene outside Four Seasons Total Landscaping.
Press waiting here alongside a handful of Trump supporters as each news org is called inside. They boo when they hear name of news org they don’t like.
News filtering through here that the race has been called. Some press are leaving.
We’re now about to hear from @CLewandowski_ moments after Joe Biden has been projected to become the next president. Image
“Where were you when the infamously grueling 2020 presidential race was called?”

“Four Seasons Total Landscaping.”
Absolute scenes. A woman celebrating Biden’s win, cheering Black Lives Matter, just drove past Trump supporters gathered outside.
The press conference is delayed for some reason.
If they don’t start this soon there might not be any press left here to cover it. Journalists keep leaving.
Rudy Giuliani is here. “I’m here to describe to you the first part of a situation that is very troubling.” Image
He says people behind him are poll watchers who will testify they were blocked from watching votes (this is false).
Fact check: The disagreement in Philly was over the distance poll watchers could stand away from the counting. This is nonsense so far.
Giuliani claims poll watchers weren’t allowed close enough. So far not produced any evidence of voter fraud.
“Joe Frazier is still voting here” says Rudy. “Also Will Smith’s father voted here twice since he died.”
There was “zero security” “people have no assurance those ballots were actually cast.” This is not true. Republicans and Democrats monitored the entire process.
The first poll watcher says he was told to stand 20 feet away. This appears to be the entirety of the legal complaint here. This is very thin.
I came to Four Seasons Total Landscaping to see if the president’s lawyers would offer any evidence of the fraud they have been alleging. They haven’t. So I’m leaving.
Outside the press conference here a man in his underpants (dressed as sleepy Joe) shouts “George Soros” at Biden supporters across the road.
The view from the other side of the road.
Heading back to Philly. Image

I joined the Facebook group of a small town in east Texas for a story last year. It's extremely pro-Trump, Dems are communists etc. Today, it lit up with discussion about AOC's fundraising & visit. There's the usual crazies, but also a genuine push back I haven't seen before.
There are plenty of negative comments, as you can imagine. Like, it's hurting people's brains. But that's normal. What's different is the push back.
This is in a county where Trump won 82% of the vote in November.

I humbly submit these 1,600 words on the Four Seasons Total Landscaping event to the historical record. This is my eyewitness account of a day that will forever live in infamy.

Trump's attacks on mail-in ballots began before a vote had even been cast. He lied about their vulnerability to fraud and tried to limit their use because he knew Democrats were more likely to use them. It has nothing to do with fraud and everything to do with voter suppression.
He tried to hobble the US Postal Service to make it more difficult for postal ballots to be delivered.

He tried to do away with ballot drop-off boxes for the same reason.

I've spent a good part of the campaign covering the Trump admin's attacks on the integrity of the electoral process, so I'm going to be fact-checking Donald Trump's statement, which is due to start shortly.
Trump says "pollsters knowingly got it wrong." This is obviously not true.
"If you can't the legal votes, I easily win." — This is false. There is no evidence that any illegal votes have been counted.
