President Trump 'genuinely would like to be on Mt. Rushmore or some other similar mountain that has available carving space, which Mt. Rushmore doesn't,' says CillizzaCNN.

On Sunday night, President Donald Trump tweeted out a picture of himself standing in front of Mount Rushmore -- an image that made him look as though he was the fifth presidential bust on the iconic monument.

Here's the shot:US President Donald Trump arrives for the Independence Day events at Mount Rushmore National Memorial in Keystone, South Dakota, July 3, 2020. (Photo by SAUL LOEB / AFP) (Photo by SAUL LOEB/AFP via Getty Images)Moments later, he tweeted out a sort-of denial of a New York Times report that he had spoken with South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem about the possibility of adding his own visage to those of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Tweeteth Trump:"This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN. Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me."Read MoreSo Trump says a) he has never raised the possibility with Noem of being added to Mount Rushmore but b) thinks it sounds like a great idea!Let's take the first point, uh, first.We know that Trump has, in fact, raised the topic with Noem and that he was serious about it."He said, 'Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand,'" Noem told the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader about a meeting with Trump in the Oval Office."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. He wasn't laughing, so he was totally serious."Then there's this from a Trump campaign rally in July 2017:"Every single president on Mt. Rushmore -- I'd ask whether or not you think I will someday be on Mt. Rushmore. But here's the problem: If i did it, joking, totally joking, the fake news media would say he believes he should be on Mt. Rushmore. So I won't say it."He's not joking. Remember that Trump always uses the I-am-just-joking-and-you-media-stiffs-don't-get-it explanation whenever he says something that a) he means and b) he wants to give himself the ability to walk away from. But he's not joking. Not at all. Don't take my word for it. Take Noem's. Again! This is from the Times story that ran on Sunday (bolding is mine):"Introducing Mr. Trump against the floodlit backdrop of his carved predecessors, the governor played to the president's craving for adulation by noting that in just three days more than 125,000 people had signed up for only 7,500 seats; she likened him to Theodore Roosevelt, a leader who"braves the dangers of the arena"; and she mimicked the president's rhetoric by scorning protesters who she said were seeking to discredit the country's founders."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."She had a Mount Rushmore replica made with Trump's face on it! Repeat: She had a Mount Rushmore replica made with Trump's face on it! .duval-3{width:100%;position: relative; border: 1px solid #979797; border-left: none; border-right: none;padding: 20px 0; box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-box-sizing: border-box; -moz-box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0 0 20px 0; max-width: 660px;} .duval-3 a{color: #1a1a1a; text-decoration: none;font-size: 0;} .duval-3 a:hover { color: #d9d9d9; text-decoration: underline; -moz-text-decoration-color: #d9d9d9; text-decoration-color: #d9d9d9; } .duval-3>a>*{vertical-align: top; display: inline-block;} .duval-3>a>div{display: inline-block; font-size:1.0666667rem;width: 80%; padding-top: 0px; padding-left: 2%;} .duval-3>a>img{width: 18%; height: auto;} @media screen and (max-width:640px){ .duval-3>a>*{display:block; margin: auto;} .duval-3>a>div{width: 100%;} .duval-3>a>img{width: 50%;} } THE POINT -- NOW ON YOUTUBE!

Make trump’s statue the a pile of shit under Lees horse at Stone Mountain! It’s his personality and fitting since he likes confederate generals Has brikeilarcnn ever reported a feel good positive story ever or only non stop hate stories on a duly elected President. There is a reason they stuck her in mid day as very few people watch her. Just once do a positive story on Trump or in the world. Be a better person

I’m sure this never happened except possibly in jest. They don’t call you “fake news” for nothing! Bhahaha Trump goes to Rushmore, forever! His face however, should be on EVERY DOLLAR BILL! TRUMP2020!!!!! MAGA! 😃😃😃😃🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🌎 He’s tricking the media again. You’re spreading the message for him. Again. There might be carving space in Russia's Ural Mountains for Trump.

This is fake news Go back to your casino CNN U R A Deceiver Prov. 14 Whoever fears the Lord walks uprightly those who despise him are devious in their ways Honest witness does not deceives false witness pours out lies The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, the folly of fools is deception.

CillizzaCNN R they all children They sound like it CillizzaCNN Stop devoting air time to stupid, attention-seeking garbage Trump throws out. It is playing directly into his incessant need for attention and recognition, no matter where it comes from. CillizzaCNN The only mountain he’s going to be associated with is the mountain of shit he’s been shoveling for years

CillizzaCNN CillizzaCNN Agreed he should go higher if hes serious. Our countrys largest mountan is Everest but it would take many years to carve that CillizzaCNN Perhaps a monument to Trump at Pottersfield would be more appropriate. Or another spot that memorializes the 160,000+ dead due to realDonaldTrump POTUS massive failures.

CillizzaCNN Does CNN require job candidates to pass a test to prove that they can lie easily on camera ? CillizzaCNN I would like to get my face carved there. At least I wear my mask every day. CillizzaCNN The voice though Cillizza! CillizzaCNN Narcissus and his obsession with the mirrors, and yet he can't see what he is.

CillizzaCNN A monument to the ego of one of the most hated and racist president? I don’t think so! CillizzaCNN “News” 👆 CillizzaCNN Only place his face should be on the wall in the Post Office. Oh wait his friend now controls that. CillizzaCNN Most trusted name in news👍 CillizzaCNN Why even talk about this stupidity? Everyone know that trump is stupid and absurd.

CillizzaCNN So stuck on himself their are other Presidents that deserve that before him lmbo. CillizzaCNN CillizzaCNN I would name a sewage treatment plant after trump. CillizzaCNN Trump and his entire team are deluded.. CillizzaCNN Is CNN reporting this? CillizzaCNN How about the Mariana Trench? He could visit the unveiling in person. ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯

CillizzaCNN Maybe Russia will put one up for Trump CillizzaCNN Trump 'genuinely would like to be on Mt. Rushmore or some other similar mountain that has available carving space, which Mt. Rushmore doesn't,' says CillizzaCNN.

Undecided Voter Looking Forward To Learning More About Donald Trump During CampaignRALEIGH, NC—Acknowledging his blind spots in regard to the upcoming presidential election, local undecided voter Kenneth McGraw announced Monday that he was looking forward to learning more about Republican candidate Donald Trump over the course of his campaign. “I’ve definitely heard of Donald Trump, but I haven’t taken the time to look into the details of his politics,” said the furniture salesman, adding that it was his duty as an American citizen to thoroughly research the candidate before committing his vote to him. “I’ve seen photos of him, as well as a few episodes of The Apprentice, but beyond that, I want to know what kind of president he would make. For instance, I just found out that he is a father and husband—family is very important to me. Hopefully, his campaign plans to spend some money on television advertisements so I can hear about his vision for America in the coming days and months. Or maybe the newspaper will print some articles that get into his policy proposals. That would definitely help me get to know him better so that I can make an informed decision come November. Wow, see, I just learned that he likes golfing just like me.” At press time, McGraw admitted he hasn’t yet heard who Trump’s opponent will be but plans to set some time aside to research that as well.\n Tyler 1 with hair I wish this were funny. A phone banker for our state primary told me yesterday that he has talked to people who don't know who's running in the presidential election. 😬 Lmfao
