Christ.


White House aides reached out to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem last year about the process of adding additional presidents to Mount Rushmore, the New York Times reported.

According to a person familiar who spoke with the Times, Noem then greeted Trump when he arrived in the state for his July Fourth celebrations at the monument with a four-foot replica of Mount Rushmore that included his face.

Noem has noted before Trump's "dream" to have his face on Mount Rushmore, the Coolidge-era sculpture that features the 60-foot-tall faces of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.

According to a 2018 interview with Noem, the two struck up a conversation about the sculpture in the Oval Office during their first meeting, where she initially thought he was joking. "I started laughing," she said. "He wasn't laughing, so he was totally serious."

I mean I got somewhat of a laugh out of reading this earlier. I was imagining his smug face on that mountain. I'm sure this idea will get any Trump supporter wet and no doubt he'd have their undying support (both in and outside the partisan closet).

This was originally from the New York Times and supposedly comes directly from South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem herself (then a representative):

Mount Trumpmore? It's the president's 'dream,' Rep. Kristi Noem says


Noem, who is running for South Dakota Governor in the Republican primary in June, relayed the story to Vermillion native Mitchell Olson while the two were filming a segment for Olson's South Dakota edition of carpool karaoke.

A spokesperson for the White House didn't respond to an email asking to verify the story and whether or not Trump aims to be carved onto Mount Rushmore.


What more can I say? He wanted that $90 million plus military parade he could show off back in 2018 and didn't get his way then. Wouldn't hold this past him at all.

Any conservative that supports this immediately revokes their right to complain about government spending EVER again.

Ah Dashen, the first loyal follower eagerly to his defense. Maybe he'll let you scratch his chin one day because of this. It'd be an honor to behold, I'm sure.

LOL,

One thing Trump can do quite effectively is keep the media talking about him daily. Throw out a tweet, say some off the wall babble, throw out a comment here and there and he is in the news. Again, and again, and again.

If he would've got the wall built, then he would've had something to validate his infamous mug being etched into history, forever desecrating a symbol of American History with a 2016-2020 President put on it.

Alas, this was not to be. The hispanic immigrant invasion was never thwarted and we're suffering the consequences. So many people in my neighborhood are dying from drug overdoses and having their homes invaded by Mexican gangs.

They should have petitioned for Cheyenne Mountain, that way when the peaceful protesters attempt to blow it up with the silent blessings of the democrats, there will be hell toupee' and a shortage of popcorn - all at the same time.

Either way, the most important thing about all of this is the reactions of the Trump hater-cult to such an announcement.

I wanna pump it straight into my veins - its glorious.

Cheers for the hit.

Oh God I just spat out my beer.

I know you're trying to troll yourself here but seriously, it's not productive on your part.

This truly is a non event, a total media beat up
I find it funny how easily people are set off by nothing, both sides

And on one is going to roast Bunkerboy for that, right?

Like, a couple of years ago you would have gone "INSANITY! HOW COULD HE DARE TO COMPETE WITH THE FOUNDERS!!"

Now... *crickets*

You guys have become apathetic by his constant media-maelstrom! You should have not!

I think the giveaway to that is "according to a person familiar who spoke with the times". That's usually the line that screams "we have no sources because we just made this # up to try to get some kind of ratings".

people take the bait far too easily.

you know Trumps sitting in the oval office laughing his a55 off at all the liberals heads exploding... its too easy to make you look so stupid!

PS - Trump doesn't wear a toupee - its a common misconception

"While I was taking a piss in a titty bar in DC I heard a person who sounded like someone I had heard while in the shower getting ready listening to CNN on my waterproof speaker......." said the anonymous source from the white house kitchen....

That is the informant.

Uhm...seriously. If some of you have not figured out by now that there are 'leaks' from the POTUS himself you should be ashamed. It has already been discussed that they had to find out who and used them.

Why not???
