CNN’s Don Lemon Unveils His Plan to ‘Fix’ Mount Rushmore

The prospect was parroted by fellow primetime anchor Chris Cuomo.

President Trump’s Independence Day speech at the fabled Mount Rushmore monument in South Dakota has reignited a ferocious debate over the massive, patriotic carving, and CNN wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to weigh in on the hot-button issue.

According to much of the infotainment industry, everything that Donald Trump does is racist – at least to some degree.  Choosing Tulsa, Oklahoma for this first 2020 rally post-COVID crisis, for instance.

Now, his choice to speak at Mount Rushmore on the 4th of July has similarly irked the liberal left, and has prompted previously unconcerned instigators to go all-in against the four men depicted on the monument – often citing racism as the reason for their concern.

While discussing a California couple charged for painting over a “Black Lives Matter” mural, Lemon said, “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 sand 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.”

That snippet was part of a larger conversation with fellow primetime host Chris Cuomo who also expressed his support for the idea, noting that adding to Mount Rushmore was likely a bit more palatable to the general public that removing anyone from it.
