Trump Believes He’ll Be Added To Mt. Rushmore Alongside Washington And Lincoln

According to Rep. Kristi Noem, President Trump dreams of having his likeness carved into Mount Rushmore.

When Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD) had the opportunity to meet President Donald Trump in the Oval Office, she suggested to the president that he should visit her state sometime – perhaps swing by and visit Mount Rushmore.

And according to Noem’s recounting of the meeting, Trump indicated he’d already been thinking about Mount Rushmore.

Via USA TODAY:

"He said, 'Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand,'" Noem said. "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?'"

Noem thought he was joking.

"I started laughing," she said. "He wasn't laughing, so he was totally serious."

Indeed, Trump has mentioned Mount Rushmore in the past, bringing up the topic at a campaign rally in Ohio last year:

"I'd ask whether or not you think I will someday be on Mount Rushmore, but here's the problem: If I did it joking, totally joking, having fun, the fake news media will say, 'He believes he should be on Mount Rushmore,'" he said.

"So I won't say it, OK? I won't say it."

The only place Trump deserves to be immortalized is in a federal prison cell OR at the end of a noose reserved for corrupt, treasonous politicians.
Just saying... 😎

I truly hope that Trump gets eventually get that which he deserves; a lengthy prison sentence with a rapist cell-mate who prefers to shag fat, white guys with comb-overs.

Really, his face should be on Mt. Rushmore, but only as the consequence of a horrific plane/chopper crash...

I believe the plan is to carve his likeness on the backside of the Horse of the Crazy Horse Monument.
