Happy Hour News Briefs

Not a joke:

White House aides reached out to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem last year about the process of adding additional presidents to Mount Rushmore, the New York Times reported.

According to a person familiar who spoke with the Times, Noem then greeted Trump when he arrived in the state for his July Fourth celebrations at the monument with a four-foot replica of Mount Rushmore that included his face.

Noem has noted before Trump’s “dream” to have his face on Mount Rushmore, the Coolidge-era sculpture that features the 60-foot-tall faces of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.

According to a 2018 interview with Noem, the two struck up a conversation about the sculpture in the Oval Office during their first meeting, where she initially thought he was joking. “I started laughing,” she said. “He wasn’t laughing, so he was totally serious.”

“He said, ‘Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand, and so 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?'”

Why the hell not? His head is already full of rocks.

    Well, I think that would be undeserved, and in bad taste. However, I would have no objection to authorities knocking the head off of Bobby Lee at Stone Mountain Park, GA, and replacing it with a giant bust of Trump’s head.

    That would be perfect!

    I don’t think granite is hard enough to accurately portray The Impeached Donald’s™ head.

    (yes, that was stolen from an SNL sketch at the dawn of time.)

    My dream is to have his face on toilet paper. I imagine some enterprising entrepreneur has already done it.

    Howdy y’all!

    It is a testament to his extreme narcissism that he believes before he’s even been resoundingly voted off stage that he deserves to be on Mount Rushmore. He is flagrantly and extravagantly mentally ill, and the GOP is using it to destroy our democracy, Putin is using it to destroy the liberal democratic world order, Erdogan is using it to destroy the kurds, and Netanyahu is using it to do whatever in the hell he’s doing to fuck-up Israel and Palestine.

    We really should be talking more about his mental illness in no uncertain terms but, alas and alack, we are all too afraid of mental illness to talk about it hardly at all, so no one other than Bandy Lee and a few odd assorted bloggers and smart-assed Twitterers will talk about it.

    It is clear that Trump is crying out for the 25th Amendment, but we are all deaf to his pleas.

      CJ – As long as he remains a useful fool, he’ll be their useful tool. But is he venomous, or just poisonous? Because he’s known for turning on those around him in an instant, lashing out, and keeping them forever more OUT of his favored graces.

        Howdy Dennis!

        After watching this fool blunder through life over the last four plus years, I’m convinced he is just blindly blundering and thrashing about. There is no rhyme or reason for what he says or does other than some inner knee-jerk reaction to whatever inner and outer stimuli he is encountering. It is up to those around him to manipulate him as they can to actually achieve any kind of discernible or orchestrated outcome. Putin has clearly mastered the tools necessary for manipulating him. He’s gaslight his cabinet and the GOP into groupthink. We are reaping the rewards of both.
