First you have to be successful
Second you have to be liked
Third you have to be dead

And it's farking sad as shiat that people think this guy belongs in mount Rushmore.  That is some passive aggressive bullshiat right there.

Republicans pledge allegiance to a man, not the Constitution.  Like Nazi farking Germany.

So you are saying that Trump might be dead?

You can have her. She's not doing anything here anyway.

"In private, the efforts to charm Mr. Trump were more pointed, according to a person familiar with the episode: Ms. Noem greeted him with a four-foot replica of Mount Rushmore that included a fifth presidential likeness: his. "

That replica has to still exist somewhere.

It is funny a WH aide is such an idiot they didn't know Mt. Rushmore is part of the National park service and the gov of South Delhi has dick to do with control on it.
Another Trumper showing a complete lack of basic understanding of government.

That sort would sign a petition to put a giant dog turd up there, just to be an annoyance to the world.

Hey, people, do NOT mention that it's a federal monument, not state. Absolutely don't even think of suggesting that a president could issue an executive order demanding his face be carved into a hillside. Or that he could fire every one in the federal parks and monuments departments who does not immediately start chiseling. Or he could order the firing of anyone in the EPA who even thinks of slowing him down by insisting on environmental law and order.
There is no reason to believe that someone would insist that this has to be done by the first Tuesday in November.

First you need to deliver the goods on something big.  Like buying Greenland, for example.

As a voter, I support that first step

2 million people visit Mount Rushmore every year.
58 million visit Disneyworld

I don't think I've ever been there.  I think we would have had to go out of our way to get there and there's not much else around.  Saw the Crazy Horse monument, though.
 
2020-08-08 2:05:04 PM  
Trump?

I thought his head was already made out of stove.
 
2020-08-08 2:18:45 PM  
...she likened him to Theodore Roosevelt, a leader who "braves the dangers of the arena..."

Much brave. So arena.

Just tell them when they ask that if they open up the possibility of adding Trump's bloated face to the mountain, they also open up the possibility of blowing the current faces off the mountain, changing the name back to Six Grandfathers, and returning it to the Lakota.

Probably not true, alas, but THEY don't know that.

(also a metric assload of orange paint would be required for true verisimilitude)

There's surely a perfect spot for him on (in?) Mount Trashmore.

Well, there is better parking at Disneyworld.

NO. Don't fark up Mt. Rushmore with dipshiats likeness in any way.

Go pop a few more and think about it. Send me a 30 pack of Hamms.
Thanks

My parents lived in the Black hills, Custer area. There is quite a bit of site seeing in the area and Custer state park is awesome. I loved visiting them.

Don't give them any ideas. Next thing you know, they'll want animatronic Trump-bots in Disneyworld.

/Luckily, we don't have to worry about animatronic Trump-bots here...

No, no, let's go ahead and put his head up there, too. Life-size, heroic 1:1 scale.
 
2020-08-08 4:10:15 PM  
I guess it would be best to ask the people who actually own it first.  I'm sure that will go well for him.
 
2020-08-08 4:16:25 PM  
Even if it did get up there; I doubt it would last long.  I am certain it would be defaced.

His ego is ridiculous when compared to his actual ability.  It's like if Glass Joe went around talking like Muhammad Ali.

They couldn't get St. Reagan's mug on Mt. Rushmore.  Good luck with President Daddy.

OK, let's start there.
 
2020-08-08 4:20:11 PM  
Guh, I can't believe he wants to slap his fugly mug on there.
I'm surprised his minions didn't think to project his rotten orange grimace on there for the 4th.

Yes, but Disney already has Dopey and Goofy.
 
2020-08-08 4:25:18 PM  
If you go to freeperland, they see him as a god, just about.  It's true.  Frightening.  They think God chose Trump to lead the country and he should be supported always, no matter what.
 
2020-08-08 4:25:22 PM  
Two terms.

Etch Trump's face into the bowl of every toilet in the park. Hell, every toilet in the National Park system.
 
2020-08-08 4:26:16 PM  
Why is there snow on Trump's nose at Mount Rushmore, grandpa Harry?
Oh that's crushed Sudafed

Nice try but I still want to piss on his grave. I hope they design it with a nice catch basin and a hand sanitizing station.

He doesn't deserve any tribute more lasting than this:

His entire career consists of slapping his name on other people's shiat, so not sure why you're surprised. I am more surprised he doesn't want to rename it Mount Trump.

The Crazy Horse monument is nearby and on private land.  Buy that out and make a Crazy Centaur monument.  Half the work is done.

I have an honest concern that they'd try to do this and that entire portion of the farking mountain would come down because they would absolutely ignore any geological data on it. You can't go to Washington's right because when they planned on putting Jefferson there they found too many faults with the rock; same problem on the left of Lincoln (and again, Lincoln was also moved), compounded by the fact that the mountain isn't solid straight back - there's a big cut in the rock behind their heads to the point that TR's head is only about 65' thick.

All that, and you'd have to get funding (which, if he can't get funding for actual national security, he sure as shiat isn't gonna get it to carve his face in a rock in South Dakota) and by the time it was planned and executed they'll be cancelling it or carving Vlad's head, one or the other.
 
2020-08-08 4:38:24 PM  
It's an interesting idea. I would definitely be ok with Obama up there.
 
2020-08-08 4:40:10 PM  
Pretty sure there is an outhouse there they can put his mug on.

That may be the most horrific thing I've ever read.  I mean I don't care for Mount Rushmore but that's like letting a kid scribble on a Rembrandt.

The stupid never runs out with this administration.
