Trump Just Stopped A Rally To Ask Crowd If He Should Be Put On Mount Rushmore

Trump’s megalomania is reaching dangerous new lows. His already infamous, unhinged speech to the Boy Scouts yesterday showed him to be a president quickly untethering from reality.  Today, at a speech in Ohio, Trump gave perhaps his most absurd musings yet.

“Every single president on Mount Rushmore… Now here’s what I do, I’d ask whether or not you think I will one day on Mount Rushmore but…” Trump says, taking a pause to let the applause and cheers from his supporters wash over him. “But here’s the problem. If I did it joking, totally joking, having fun, the fake news media will say ‘he believes he belongs on Mount Rushmore.’ So I won’t say it all right?”

The comments are as transparent as they are delusional. Trump wants the adrenaline rush of his supporters rooting for him to appear on the national landmark, but on some level knows how insane he sounds. Trump has zero presidential accomplishments to his name, and it’s shameful to even mention him in the same breath as Jefferson, Washington, Roosevelt, and Lincoln.


Donald J. Trump doesn’t belong on Mount Rushmore. He doesn’t even belong in the White House.

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
