Just by being there. Walking graffiti. Bloated roadside waste bag. His speech was fetid air pollution.

Trump Uses Mount Rushmore Speech to Deliver Divisive Culture War Message
Trump delivered a dark and divisive speech on Friday that cast his struggling effort to win a second term as a battle against a “new far-left fascism”... Trump barely mentioned the frightening resurgence of the pandemic... changing the subject and appealing to fear and division.

Meanwhile his most ardent supporters continued to self-deport from the realm of the living... we thank them for their service.
...few in the packed crowd practiced any social distancing.

Oh and this one:
Before the president left for South Dakota on Friday, Trump campaign aides were circulating on social media a doctored image of Mount Rushmore, featuring Mr. Trump’s face carved into the stone next to some of the nation’s most revered presidents. Mr. Trump announced plans to establish what he described as a “vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans to ever live..."

Meaning of course that since nobody else will build a statue of him, he will do it. Statues of him, and maybe Rush Limbaugh. Plus another one of him, to block the view of Rush's from both sides.

I hope he builds his vanity case atop his Wall, so the next prez can save on demolition costs.
