Donald Trump Inquired About Adding His Face to Mount Rushmore | Consequence of Sound
Donald Trump frequently compares himself to Abraham Lincoln. Now, according to a new report, he'd also like to be etched right alongside him on Mount Rushmore.

Things just keep getting stranger and stranger in Trump Land!

Donald Trump frequently compares himself to Abraham Lincoln. Now, according to a new report from the New York Times, he wants to be etched right alongside him on Mount Rushmore.

The Times reports that a White House official contacted South Dakota's governor last year inquiring about the process of adding additional presidents. In turn, the state's governor, Kristi Noem, recently gifted Trump with a four-foot replica of Mount Rushmore that included his likeness alongside Lincoln, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Theodore Roosevelt.

Ultimately, though, it is not up to Noem whether or not to add Trump to the actual Mount Rushmore. As it is a federal monument, it's managed by National Park Service. And, fortunately, their stated position is there's no room for a fifth face.

"The rock that surrounds the sculpted faces is not suitable for additional carving, said Maureen McGee-Ballinger, Mount Rushmore National Memorial Chief of Interpretation and Education, in an interview with the Argus Leader. "When Gutzon Borglum, the sculptor of Mount Rushmore died in 1941, his son Lincoln Borglum closed down the project and stated that no more carvable rock existed."

Additionally, McGee-Ballinger explained, "Mount Rushmore was sculpted by Gutzon Borglum to represent the first 150 years of the history of the United States — the birth, growth and preservation of our country. He chose the four presidents to represent the principles of our present form of government not to represent the individuals themselves."

"It is one man's artistic interpretation, and a tribute to that period of our nation's history. The National Park Service takes the position that death stayed the hand of the artist and the work is complete in its present form. Thus, to maintain both the integrity of the structure and the artist's concept, there is no procedure for adding another likeness, the sculpture is complete."

Then again, when have established norms and traditions ever stopped Donald Trump from getting his way?

I vote for putting a 'Bobble Head' version of Trumps head cemented on a small platform near the Hidden Door on MT. Rushmore.

Kills two birds with one Bobble Head.....Trump gets his wish of having his head on Mt Rushmore, and no one has to see it. jrSmiley_79_smiley_image.gif

Which one would you pick?

I can personally think of 4 more former presidents worthy of Rushmoresque treatment for different reasons even if its not on a Rushmore scale.

1. FDR

2. JFK

3. Reagan

4. Obama

condition would be it would be done only  20 years after their deaths. and a super majority of the population would have to agree.

Has Trump really so little love for his Son Barron that he is leaving such a horrible and disgusting legacy for him to try to live with and handle in his own life once he leaves the protection of the WH?

It is obvious that Melania knew what to expect when he was elected, and why she was anxious at that time to renegotiate their pre-nup. 

I can only hope that Melania will be the kind of Mother Barron will need to help him face the truth about his Father, which sadly, he will one day have to do.

Seems, however, that the Obama administration was the most squeaky clean administration in modern history. No amount of propaganda and hate of the 'other' can change that fact.

The Trump administration, on the other hand, has proved to be the most corrupt and venal administration in US history (and that's saying a lot).

"... after President Trump was sworn in, he relayed his dream of actually being carved on the mountain, according to South Dakota Rep. Kristi Noem.

Noem said the two struck up a conversation in their first meeting at the Oval Office.

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."

The only really important stuff at this time is anthropogenic global warming.

So we can at least agree that the hullabaloo over this is basically NOTHING!

People up in arms over bullshit as if it the most important thing!

At least we know what is really, really important to them!

The Bulwark (never-Trump Republicans) is fun reading these days.

I think that the number of rats leaving the sinking ship will be a good indicator of Trump's prospects.

My first thought was Donald, Donald, Donald.  Then I saw the report was from The New York Times and I thought Fake, Fake, Fake

I am wrong about what I was thinking?  You wouldn't be a liberal that believes they know everything would you?

Trump could have had his picture in every POST OFFICE in America. Instead he is dismantling the Postal Service leaving our Veterans without timely mailed medications and hurting anyone who tries to save money on mail order prescriptions. He wants glory, just a blatant self serving glory hog expecting everyone not to see how harmful his policies are to Veterans and all Americans.

Can you outline for me the steps Trump has taken to dismantle the Post Office?

He appointed a crony who immediately fired two senior executives... at a time (census, election) when disorganization is really, really not what is needed.

So, no dismantling of the post office despite claims to the contrary.

Thanks!

"Congress authorized USPS to borrow $10 billion as part of a coronavirus relief package, but Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is refusing to hand over the money until it turns over much of its operations to him. (This was not remotely stipulated in the law and is probably illegal.)"

Trumps donor appointee Louis DeJoy "has limited overtime, instructed mail carriers to leave mail behind that will slow down their delivery routes, and required that they park no more than four times along their delivery routes. Trump, meanwhile, has demanded the USPS quadruple its rates on packages."

"Trump has been screeching paranoid lies about voting by mail for the last few months, falsely portraying it as some kind of Democratic conspiracy to commit voter fraud" in the middle of a pandemic.

https://theweek.com/articles/925637/donald-trump-destroying-post-office

If you refuse them congressionally approved funding, cut their overtime, cut their stops, quadruple prices and decry voting by mail during a pandemic when more people than ever want to vote by mail, what results can you really expect? So either this was a calculated attack on the postal system by those who have been trying to privatize and destroy a constitutionally mandated service to line their own pockets with profit, or it was a blind, bumbling, inept and moronic attempt to 'fix' the postal system by the most ignorant poorly appointed manager and leadership ever.

But let's not forget it was these same slimy conservative Republicans back in 2006 who put the rope around the post offices neck which led it to be in such bad shape today.

"the USPS has struggled since 2006, when (convicted pedophile and Republican House speaker Dennis Hastert's led) Congress and President Bush imposed absurd retirement benefit funding requirements in the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act. As my colleague Jeff Spross writes, this required the agency to pre-fund its retiree health benefits over the next 75 years , and immediately knocked its budget into the red. As I have argued before, fully pre-funding even normal pensions is absurd for a permanent government agency, but this is even worse — requiring the USPS to sock money away for future employees who aren't even born yet. "
