Trump to kick off Independence Day weekend at Mt. Rushmore amid anti-monument push from activists

President Trump on Friday will travel to Mount Rushmore to mark the start of Independence Day weekend with a firework display -- coming at a time of vigorous national debate over America’s history, and when the South Dakota landmark is under renewed scrutiny by activists.

Trump is expected to speak at the event, and more than 7,000 tickets have been distributed for people to watch it. It is likely to be filled with supporters of the president, but will also attract protesters.

The ceremony faces a double controversy of being the latest Trump event that critics say puts people at risk, unnecessarily, of spreading the coronavirus. Trump held a rally last month in Tulsa, Okla., and local officials and residents raised fears it could act as a super-spreader for the virus.

Gov. Kristi Noem has said social distancing and masks will both be optional -- although masks will be provided and there will be body temperature screening of attendees.

"Masks will be available, first off. They are not required but people will be able to have them if they don't have one with them when they come," he said. "And, I think that we have done a number of things to mitigate the spread of the COVID,”  South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg said on “Fox & Friends” Friday. “As you probably know, our state has not mandated these various policiesthat other states have. And, I think we are very proud of that and our numbers have remained low."

But Rapid City Mayor Steve Allender expressed skepticism about the precautions, and argued that attendees “are probably not likely to disqualify themself because they developed a cough the day of or the day before.”:snip:

Is The New York Times Serious With Their Tweet About President Trump's Mt. Rushmore Speech?

President Trump delivered his address at Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota to kick off the Independence Day festivities this weekend, and the media went a little crazy. No, they reacted as you’d expect. It was a clown show. Reagan wroteabout the speech and it was your typical red meat speech, with Trump being a cheerleader for America whilst also commenting on the growing and aggressive left-wing campaign to erase our history and silence differing opinions. The New York Times tweeted, “President Trump delivered a dark and divisive speech at Mount Rushmore, leaning into the culture wars and barely mentioning the pandemic.”:snip:

They Don't Even Hide Their Hatred: Look How CNN Covered Trump and Sanders' Visits to Mt. Rushmore

Does the Media Really Want to Have this Mt. Rushmore Fight? It Could Cancel Some Very Prominent Democrats

Since we’re all freaking out about President Trump giving a speech at Mount Rushmore to kick off the Fourth of July weekend, I suggest we all calm down. For liberals, you really should just take a Xanax or an Ambien; it’s better to converse with the walrus anyway. Why? well, not that I really care, but you may not want to cancel some of the top liberal leaders in the country. They’ve all visited Mount Rushmore. Obama did, as did Bernie Sanders. By the Left’s rules, both men are allies of white supremacy and slavery. They’re canceled. :snip:

Given what we know about the history of the Democratic Party....you could make an argument its true.

You have to go to 1935 Before you fond the 1st African-American Democrat in congress.

Mount Rushmore then and now

Scott Johnson

July 7 2020

The Washington Free Beacon has put together the SUPERcuts video below illustrating the Orwellian revision of Mount Rushmore. Past statements pretending to admiration are going down the memory hole. Oh, Big Brother Sibster.
