According to a story by The New York Times last year White House aides reached out to South Dakota governor Kristi Noem about the possibility of adding other president’s faces to the national monument..also stating in the article that Trump has dropped hints numerous times about it being his dream to have his face on Mount Rushmore but that’s not what really interested me about this story…I’m more entertained by people’s reactions to it and wanted to share some of the better ones I found today.
So without further delay let’s take a look at some tweets in response to this story…
I’ve joked before that conservatism is a mental illness. Of course it isn’t.— Adam Fierro (@AFIERRO) August 9, 2020
But anyone who would seriously entertain the idea that trump should be added to mount rushmore is clearly a danger to themselves and others —
There’s certainly some degree of Narcissism there, that’s for sure
The WH asked the Governor of South Dakota what steps should be followed to get “additional presidents” added to Mount Rushmore.— Dan D’Eon is wearing a mask. Why aren’t you? (@DanLDEon) August 9, 2020
Is anyone else *not* surprised by this?https://t.co/O71NXh9Zo0
This is perhaps one of the least surprising things Trump has done but plenty of people have something to say about it.

New York Times: White House reached out to South Dakota governor about adding Trump to Mount Rushmore— BDM (@Sentinel0764) August 9, 2020
How long did the person laugh before hanging up. Egotistical.https://t.co/yjZRDMYgMn
Hey look his face can fit right there…
Not a chance in hell is he added to Mount Rushmore. He’s the worst president in recent memory. He’s done nothing positive for the country and we are screwed as a country with covid abs his leadership pic.twitter.com/kIv4kH11gN— haywood (@GreenHaywood) August 9, 2020
With everything he’s done do you really believe he can’t force his way onto Mount Rushmore?
The thought of IMPOTUS 3 on Mount Rushmore is nauseating. His legacy is more appropriate for Mount Flushmore. pic.twitter.com/rVrwEJaYv4— Dennis Mason (@maceface53) August 9, 2020
Mount Flushmore….Great dad joke man.
Trump is absolutely not genuinely proposing his face go on Mount Rushmore. It’s literally solely to irritate and distract. Don’t bother treating it as an even vaguely serious proposal.— Ashles (@Ashles3000) August 9, 2020
It doesn’t sound to me like they asked for Trump’s face specifically, just for other president’s faces and at a different time Trump had expressed his wish to have his face up there.
I would think if he wins re-election (which he will) President Trump belongs on Mount Rushmore with Presidents Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, and Commissioner Gordon #MountRushmore— Jack Kimble (@RepJackKimble) August 9, 2020
Even though I don’t want him to I do agree he is going to be re-elected and honestly it’s only a matter of time until people start calling for Mount Rushmore to be taken down the same as they are with statues everywhere right now…so whoever has their face up there matters very little at this point.
