Carved in Stone? Trump’s Big Plans
This entire concept is moot. The rock face cannot support more carving, which answers the question definitively. Even if it could, though, the sculpture is carved on a mountain that is part of land that the United States government took illegally from the Lakota people in 1877. The monument remains embroiled in the legal dispute over this land grab. The chance that anyone would now attempt to add a new carving to it is pretty close to zero.

Not to be deterred, on Sunday night Trump tweeted a picture of himself positioned in such a way that his face was superimposed on the structure, beside Lincoln. Yet the story that the president wanted his likeness added to Mt. Rushmore had no sticking power.

A similar fate met Trump’s statement that last week’s devastating explosion in Beirut, caused when an estimated 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate blew up, was a “terrible attack.” “I’ve met with some of our great generals and they just seem to feel that it was not a — some kind of manufacturing explosion type of event. This was a — seems to be according to them, they would know better than I would, but they seem to think it was an attack. It was a bomb of some kind.” US Defense Department officials said there was no indication that the explosion was an attack. The statement came and went. (...)

During his first three years in office, Trump could command headlines with outrageous statements. They often distracted us from larger stories. But that power has waned from overuse, and now outlandish stories — Trump’s face on Mt. Rushmore, a deadly attack in Beirut, Obama committing treason — barely make a ripple.

That we are no longer shocked by his outrageous comments weakens Trump’s ability to control the narrative. It also badly weakens the office of the presidency. Increasingly, he seems to be sidelined from any real decision making, which makes it hard to run for reelection with the argument that he will accomplish anything in a second term.

Donald Trump’s Coded Message to White-Nationalist “Accelerationists”
Far right extremists may be souring on Trump as a political leader, but he's resolutely making the world a better place for the worst among them.

Trump’s last national security adviser, John Bolton, has stated publicly that Trump does not read his intelligence briefing book and that making him absorb information was a difficult challenge.

“He’s just not receptive to new facts,” Bolton told CBS News last month. “The intelligence briefings don’t communicate as much information as they should. We tried to think of ways to change that. I think it was probably a doomed effort.”


 
When every decision you make is for A) political reasons, B) to support your personal finances, and/or C) because Jared/Ivanka said so... who needs intelligence briefings?


 

Projection.

QAnon Facebook groups are growing at a rapid pace around the world
QAnon is a baseless internet conspiracy theory whose followers believe that Donald Trump is waging a secret war against a “deep state” cabal of Democrats and Hollywood celebrities engaging in pedophilia and sex trafficking. The theory evolved from the 2016 “pizzagate” conspiracy theory and has grown to have real-world political impact. Numerous QAnon adherents are running for elected office as Republicans; the FBI has identified QAnon as a potential domestic terrorism threat.

I mean, seriously. This is a guy who cheated on his pregnant wife with a porn star and we have the payment to prove it.
He has multiple bankruptcies in his supposedly successful past.
He doesn’t know how to pronounce some fairly standard names like Yosemite and Thailand.
He makes a big deal about how he’s friends with our enemies: North Korea and Russia specifically.
Doesn’t understand the Bible (two Corinthians) but claims to be religious.
When you ask about a book that he’s read, he’s unable to mention any besides his own.

How the hell do people think this guy is even an average president? What an incompetent embarrassment.

And riding his coattails are the Congresspeople who allow him his nepotism, ethics violations, and illegal behavior.
 
That's the batch of scumbags I am more infuriated with. Trump is who he is, he hasn't changed a bit. But a whole host of GOP Congresscritters did a full flop on their esteem for Trump.

All's I needed was to see CNN pop up on the header and stop all further inquiry.

I pity those that still take CNN seriously.  Problem is that they vote based upon what they see there.
