Wire creator David Simon relished the improvement.
“I woke up early, nonetheless laughing at Rudy Giuliani spewing bullshit from an industrial whole lot in between a crematorium and dildo shop, obtaining booked a push meeting into the Four Seasons … wait for it … Total Landscaping. The Trumpist incompetence that provides this coda. Magical,” he wrote.
Journalist Maggie Serota commented: “I will view an 11-aspect Ken Burns documentary on the Four Seasons Landscaping story.”
The push meeting was also noteworthy for Giuliani, describing forthcoming authorized issues to the result, becoming advised by a reporter that Joe Biden experienced just been declared the winner of the election.
His reaction: “Don’t be absurd.”
The Trump campaign did not straight away react to an electronic mail in search of remark. The landscaping organization could not instantly be attained.
Nonetheless, Four Seasons Total Landscaping did comment on Fb on Sunday, seemingly trying to find to participate in down any suggestion of partisanship on its behalf.
“Four Seasons Full Landscaping is a relatives owned tiny business enterprise run by life extended Philadelphians,” a submit explained. “We were honored to be asked to host a push convention at our facility.
