Proposal made to add Barack Obama to Mt. Rushmore

Democrats want to tear down statues to George Washington and other Founding Fathers.

Changing the most famous monument to America’s Presidents is now on the table.

And a proposal to add Barack Obama to Mt. Rushmore will leave you speechless.

CNN led the attacks on Mt. Rushmore and George Washington over the Fourth of July weekend.

One CNN so-called “reporter” blasted Mt. Rushmore as a monument featuring two slave owners built on land stolen from Native American Indians.

On Tuesday night, Don Lemon added to the controversy by claiming that adding Barack Obama’s face to the monument would solve the controversy.

“You see the right-wing machine kick in, media kick in, and see Trump’s poll numbers go south. They kick in with ‘Democratic cities are in chaos right now. Is this what you want from Joe Biden?’ And, ‘They are taking your country away and they are going to take down statues.’ Crime is rising. It’s so bad. Oh my, defund police. And the people who you saw there for the most part not specifically, as a whole, fall for it. They fall for it. That’s why they do things like that. They want to paint over signs and think it’s our country. This is the country that we built.

“Even though a rich diversity of people helped build the country, and many of us, meaning ancestors, for free — did not get paid for it, could not get an education, could not build wealth, are not on statues, Confederate or otherwise, are not on Mount Rushmore. I think, listen . . . if they are going to put someone on Mount Rushmore, considering the history of the country, the first black president should be front and center.”

The four Presidents on Mt. Rushmore – George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln – all notched substantial achievements far beyond normal Presidents.

Washington essentially founded the country.
