An out of control Trump tried to put himself on Mount Rushmore at a rally in Ohio.
Trump said, “Every single president on Mount Rushmore, now here’s what I do, I ask whether or not you think that I will someday be on Mount Rushmore, but here’s the problem, if I did it jokingly, totally jokingly, having fun, the fake news media will say he believes he should be on Mount Rushmore, so I won’t say it. Ok? So I won’t say it. They’ll say it anyway; you watch tomorrow. Trump thinks he should be on Mount Rushmore. What a group. What a dishonest group of people out there, and you know the funny thing, you’d think they’d want to see our country be great again. You would really think so, but they don’t. Someday, they’ll explain to me why, but every president on Mount Rushmore believed in protecting American industry. We have to protect our industry.”
And just like that, Wile E. Coyote fell off the cliff and left nothing behind but a cloud of dust.
Trump is so far gone that he is asking his loving fans if he belongs on Mount Rushmore while he has the lowest approval rating in the history of polling. If anyone in the press points out that Trump believes that he belongs on Mount Rushmore while possessing zero major legislative accomplishments during his first six months in office, Trump will call them fake news.
No other president in my lifetime has suggested or asked an audience if they belong on Mount Rushmore. The only reason that a president would ask that question is that he believes that he belongs on Mount Rushmore.
With multiple investigations surrounding his presidency, Donald Trump has a better chance of ending up in a Supermax than he does of ever being on Mount Rushmore.
