The owner of the sex shop next door to Four Seasons Landscaping where Rudy Giuliani and the Trump campaign held their infamous press conference says business is booming and he doesn’t know if they’ll ever ‘trend like this again’.

Bernie D’Angelo, the owner of Fantasy Island Adult Books in Philadelphia, says he could never have afforded the advertising his business has received since Saturday’s press conference. 

Giuliani and the Trump campaign staged their event about voter fraud outside the Four Seasons Landscaping company in an industrial pocket of the city.

President Trump initially tweeted it would be held at the Four Seasons four-star hotel in the city center.

‘I don’t know if I’ll ever trend like this ever again,’ D’Angelo told Slate of his business’ newly found fame.

‘People in the neighborhood forget about us because we haven’t done any major, major advertising. We could never afford advertising like this. This is worldwide.’

He said both Democrats and Republicans who attended the press conference visited his store after. 

D’Angelo said he wished he knew about the press conference earlier so he could have capitalized more.  

He hasn’t ruled out making t-shirts after the landscaping business started selling merchandise that plays of Trump campaign phrases, including ‘Lawn & Order’ and ‘Make America Rake Again’.  

‘You know, capitalism is what capitalism is. It’s about making a buck. I know the landscaping company, I think they made a shirt. If I knew this was coming, like I said, I would have invested in making shirts,’ D’Angelo said. 

D’Angelo, whose father started the sex shop, suggested Trump had now come full circle after linking the press conference to his history with porn star Stormy Daniels. 

‘What are the odds, you know? Donald Trump starts out playing around with Stormy Daniels and, next thing you know, one of his final hurrahs is going to be down the street from an adult bookstore that’s been there for 40 years,’ he said.  

‘You can’t write this stuff.’

Daniels rose to fame after claiming to have had an affair with Trump in 2006 when he was already married to Melania.

Trump denies the affair.

His personal lawyer at the time, Michael Cohen, paid $130,000 to Daniels in a hush money deal brokered 11 days before the 2016 election to keep her quiet about their alleged sexual relationship.

Speaking of the day of the press conference, D’Angelo recalled a customer telling him that something ‘crazy’ was happening outside.

He said police cars and what looked like secret service vehicles started pulling into his parking lot. 

‘We were kind of laughing at first because we knew there had to be a screw-up somehow, because why would you pick a spot like this? 

‘And then when we heard it was the Four Seasons, I laughed. I knew exactly what it was then. They wanted the Four Seasons in Philadelphia, inside town, not on the outskirts of the Northeast Philadelphia area.

‘I’ve stayed at the Four Seasons. I know the difference between the two Four Seasons. One’s a landscaping business, and one’s a nice hotel.’
