Donald Trump slaps down rumors about adding his face to Mt. Rushmore

The New York Times reported on Sunday that Donald Trump had attempted to pressure South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem into adding his face to Mt. Rushmore.

Trump shut those rumors down almost immediately, saying on Sunday evening that the NYT report is “fake news” — though he added that it “sounds like a good idea to me!”

Mainstream media outlets immediately jumped on the unverified report from the Times, with CNN amplifying the rumor that Trump is making a move on Mt. Rushmore.

This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN,” Trump tweeted. “Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!”

This isn’t the only “fake news” that the Times has taken heat over in the short space of a couple of days.

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd — and the Times editorial board –were eviscerated by public figures on the right and the left for publishing an op-ed that claimed that there hasn’t been a female on a Democrat party ticket in 36 years.

Hillary Clinton, who led the Democrat ticket with Tim Kaine in 2016, reacted by tweeting “Either @TimKaine and I had a very vivid shared hallucination four years ago or Maureen had too much pot brownie before writing her column again.”

Mainstream media outlets like the Times and CNN are becoming sloppier and more transparent in their attempts to undermine Trump, but it appears that the American people aren’t buying it as easily anymore.

A Gallup/Knight Foundation survey released last week found that 49 percent of respondents believe that news coverage is “very biased” and that 74 percent of respondents said that “owners of news outlets attempting to influence the way stories are reported” is “a major problem.”

Amazing the blatant lies coming from MSM nowadays. They don’t even try to hide it. And they have their insane army of millions of crisis and entitlement junkies calling to tear Mt. Rushmore down.

It’s rather a condesending racial declaration that biden must run with a “black woman”

There are many serious, good black and white women who would probably govern far better than what we have in congress at this point. But…

Boy the fakes have lost all reality AND their sense of humor not able to tell when somebody is pulling their collective legs. It’s like when he said he wished her luck when asked about Ghislaine. Some called it despicable as one of my relatives did, I think he said like you do when Evel said he was going to jump the Grand Canyon, hope he makes but I don’t think he has even a snowball’s chance. More like she should learn how to enjoy prison. They missed his tone of voice.

All they need is one dingbat to believe their “ story” and said dingbat will spread it like manure, swear it is true, and more dingbats will chime in. The mainstream media are sharks, sniffing for blood of the patriots so they can destroy them. They have all the “ big lying mouths” aka killary, Obutthead, creepy Kaine, Piglosi, screwmer, shifty shiff, mooochele, and their ilk spreading lies, in all their “ news shows” to fool people into believing the demonrat lies. Tune them out!

Should we just stop watching the fake news? Only half the people may see their commercials. That means their sponsors are paying too much because a lot of people aren’t watching them. Would the reliable , not taking sides and truthful news station might make more money .
