Democrats tend to lose their minds over almost everything President Donald Trump does and says.
But this may send them into overdrive.
The Trump administration reportedly asked the governor of South Dakota about the process of adding President Trump to Mount Rushmore.
According to a report from the New York Times, White House officials reached out to Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem last year about the process of adding the face of an additional president to the carving.
On July 3, the president delivered an Independence Day-themed speech in front of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, highlighting momentous occasions throughout U.S. history.
Upon Trump's arrival, Noem, who compared the president to former President Theodore Roosevelt while opening for his speech, reportedly presented him with a 4-foot replica of Mount Rushmore with his likeness imprinted on it.
The NYT reports:
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.
But less than three weeks later, Ms. Noem came to the White House with far less fanfare — to meet not with Mr. Trump, but with Vice President Mike Pence. Word had circulated through the Trump administration that she was ingratiating herself with the president, fueling suspicions that there might have been a discussion about her serving as his running mate in November. Ms. Noem assured Mr. Pence that she wanted to help the ticket however she could, according to an official present.
In a 2018 interview, Noem said Trump expressed to her that it was a dream of his to be commemorated on Mount Rushmore, a proposition initially interpreted to be a joke.
However, she later understood the president was entirely serious about the idea.
"He said, 'Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand.' 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?'" Noem said. "I started laughing. He wasn't laughing, so he was totally serious."
Now, before liberals freak out any more and claim Trump is a dictator for these comments -- assuming they are true -- it's also important to remember that former President Barack Obama made similar comments.
In a 2015 interview with comedian Jerry Seinfeld, Obama quipped that he'd like to be remembered on the iconic hill, saying that it is “pretty exclusive real estate.”
