The White House reportedly asked South Dakota's governor how to add another president to Mount Rushmore, and she later gave Trump a 4-foot replica with his face on it

"He said, 'Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand,'" Noem recounted to South Dakota's Argus Leader. "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?' "I started laughing," she said. "He wasn't laughing, so he was totally serious."

Noem, a close ally of President Trump's, has since played into that dream, at least with the power she has.

When Trump visited the monument in early July for an Independence Day speech, she greeted him with a four-foot model of Mount Rushmore with his face carved into it, the Times reported, citing a source familiar with the exchange.

I think they got the body part wrong. It should have been from lower down on his anatomy, and from the back, not the front.

WE ARE SAVED...THERE IS A GOD



Sadly for Trump, one of the reasons Noem originally laughed at his dream in the Oval Office, and laughed about it again as she recounted the story a year later, is that most South Dakotans already know that adding another face to the monument is not physically possible — as the Argus Leader pointed out when writing up Noem’s funny Trump tale:

Maureen McGee-Ballinger, public information officer at Mount Rushmore, said workers are asked daily whether any president can be added. And for years, people have suggested Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan, among others. A website — MakeRoomonRushmore.com — advocates for Obama.

“There is no more carvable space up on the sculpture,” McGee-Ballinger said. “When you are looking on the sculpture, it appears there might be some space on the left next to Washington or right next to Lincoln. You are either looking at the rock that is beyond the sculpture (on the right), which is an optical illusion, or on the left, that is not carvable.”

Let's do the Art of the Deal, offer him a spot on Rushmore in return for an immediate resignation.

Haven't they heard of something called a Sharpie? It's a solution to many problems.

Ah, but where there’s a shill, there’s a way.

”Noem reportedly joked with Trump that there is another option, Argus Leader reports.

"Come pick out a mountain," she told him.”


“Joked”. Uh huh.

I say they can carve it out at the bottom, with a nice open mouth for use as a rest stop.

Maybe re-carve the head of Jefferson Davis on Stone Mountain?
Or, maybe Jeff's horse's head or the other end?





Roswell, GA (Atlanta suburb)
