White House Reached Out to SD Gov About Adding Trump to Mt Rushmore

Last edited Sun Aug 9, 2020, 04:46 PM - Edit history (2)

Source: NYT

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.

*snip*

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."

"He said, 'Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand, and so I shook his hand, and I said, 'Mr. President, you should come to South Dakota sometime. We have Mount Rushmore.' And he goes, 'Do you know it's my dream to have my face on Mount Rushmore?'"

OMFG!🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤬🤬 Dolt45 wants his face on Mt. Rushmore. That takes some nerve and audacity for him to even think he deserves a spot up there. But it's beyond the pale for him to even initiate some kind of inquiry/action to try and do something about it. Forget the offense to the rest of us of seeing his face up there with legitimately great presidents. But how patently offensive that would be to the Lakota Sioux Tribe/Great Sioux Nation to have the mountain further defaced, with that racist bastard's likeness? Ugh.

Please someone wake me up and tell me that the last 3.5 years have all just been a nightmare...

1. Of course he does

according to his Grand Deception, he is the most gifted, brilliant, and compassionate president ever. He HAD to say that.

Seriously, I think a lot of people would try to destroy Mt Rushmore if his face was ever put up there.

36. One of my proposals for The Trump "Memorial" Liebary (SIC)

was the furthest stall inside the most poorly-maintained men's room in the truck stop closest to Mt. Rushmore. It would have a single shelf of wanking material devoted to incest fantasies, every page stuck together.

(The other, family-friendly proposal was an "eternal flame," never lit, in front of a tiny video screen constantly running a loop of that GIF of Don-Don's face plastered over a child pitching a shrieking fit because the ball didn't go in.)

Conversely, they could have his ass on the back of the mountain as a fitting tribute.

..on Stone Mountain Georgia with other traitors. That will never let Georgians forget how Kemp stole the election and helped kill thousands to Covid because of his worship of Trump. All surviving students that are forced back for the stock market should never forget why their friends died or have life long physical impairment. Or why they are homeless.

23. You are correct

It is a national memorial, part of the National Park Service. Ergo, Governor Noem would have no authority over it.

Hairplug Himmler taking unilateral action to put his face on it would spark a huge public outcry. It might even be that it would take an act of Congress to make any changes to it, although I'm not sure. More knowledgeable people would need to chime in on that.

32. According to Wikipedia:

"Because the monument and the land it sits on are owned by the Federal Government, and because it would require the use of Federal tax money, adding a face to Mount Rushmore would require an act of Congress.[50]"
I'll go with that, as having tRump's face on Mt. Rushmore would destroy the value of the monument, IMHO.

29. It is one piece of art.

A mountain defacing, Lakota pissing off work of art, but it's just one thing. He thinks it's some presidential hall of fame where they vote new ones in every now and then. Even if it was, he's not making the cut. Millard Fillmore is looking pretty good by comparison. The sheer nerve of this self absorbed prick. He will probably do something else along these lines like lobby to get on the $10 bill in his lifetime.
