Do we have time to rig something up so the presidents vomit on Trump while he's speaking?

What, is Trump planning to unveil plans to have his ugly mug to Mt. Rushmore?

On our family trip out west in 1984, we stopped by Mt Rushmore on July 4th. My dad asked the park ranger if there'd be any fireworks and in the biatchiest tone imaginable she replied, "Sir, this is a national park." It became shorthand in our family for "no. You dumbass".

You're probably joking, but I'll give you 8-to-1 odds, no limit, that he mentions having himself added during his remarks AND that at least one US senator will seriously promote the idea within 24 hours.

It would be a shame if we flooded the lottery, received all 7,500 tickets, and none of us showed up. A darn shame.

Don't forget he's done the most for African Americans since Lincoln

Probably something like this, but with Mt. Rushmore under his foot.

So, it's 1996 and I'm moving ban k to Seattle after graduating from law school in Cleveland. I'm in a U-Haul truck, and a classmate is taking the trip with me just for kicks. We're driving through South Dakota and see Ted signs for Mr. Rushmore and figure, what the hell, right? I mean, when will either of us be in South Dakota again? Well, first of all, I had no idea how far off the freeway the actual attraction is, so we drive quite a ways through a bunch of road construction to get there . We finally arrive, and - fog. The whole damn thing is fogged in. We even waited around for the better part of an hour to see if the weather would improve, but it just got worse. Never saw a thing.

So while lots of people have a story about the time they saw Mt. Rushmore, I have a story about the time I didn't see Mt. Rushmore.

My first thought, or something along the lines. I guessed if it's at Mt Rushmore he'd be going to make a run for a fifth head. For a guy who is about to solve a health crisis, an economic crisis and a racial/political crisis all until November, clearly that's not too much to ask.

I can only imagine that his his tiny bunker he believes that since the Noble Piece Price didn't quite work out, he'll shirley deserve it.

Well, that's a pity! But thanks for sharing. Made me laugh! And that's difficult these days.

A lot of people were protesting the idea of setting off fireworks at Mt. Rushmore for the 4th of July.  I agreed with that months ago, but I've since changed my mind.

Now I think a picture of Trump's predecessors wreathed in flames and surrounded by a halo of choking, noxious smoke is the perfect metaphor for July 4, 2020.
 
2020-06-05 10:37:38 AM  
I'm sure he'll use a powerful laser projector to re-form one of the faces into his. Which one?

They'd vomit boulders because they're made of stone right? I'd watch that.

Nope, it's a real national park event. And as people above have said it only costs a dollar to enter the lottery so you can spend a few bucks for the chance to take a ticket and not show up. It's really a public service encouraging social distancing.

Guaranteed he's going to "joke" about having his face on Mount Rushmore. He'll also say something inappropriate about the men already up there, which the "patriotic audience" will just lovingly lap up.

But damn, read the whole article; it's amazing how little South Dakota seems to care about Coronavirus or the police brutality protests. Surprising that the RNC hasn't moved to Pierre.

Guv Kristi is gushing how happy she is that Trump will be joining the party she's been planning for 18 months.

Translation: Trump asked to have fireworks at Mt Rushmore again over 18 months ago and they've been working on stroking his ego ever since. This is going to be one spectacualr taxpayer-funded reelection commerical, that's for sure.

Oh yeah you know he wants it
He will need to find a bigger mountain though

I know it won't be possible due to security, but I would love it if some protesters were hiding on top, and while he's speaking they unfurl a banner that adds Obama's face to the mountain.

Those odds are way too low.  It will happen.

Trump still trying for a military strike disguised as a Hero's Welcome Parade, in America's Heartland. Former Indian Sacred Land, that is. America's Heart is no where near this Expanionist Monument to Imperial Agression against the 750 or so First Nations.

Where's the Black and Native Presidents?

Yosemite used to have the fire falls. They would build a bonfire of one top of the cliffs in the valley then when the Native American story was finished they pushed it off the cliff and hopefully the shelf that was supposed to catch it did its job. It was pretty cool to see it as a kid.
