Tuesday, CNN Anchor Don Lemon suggested while talking to Chris Cuomo that Mount Rushmore could be improved by adding former President Obama “front and center.”
“They want to paint over signs and think it’s our country. This is the country that we built.” Lemon argued. “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.”
Lemon then proposed the move could help “more people rethink our country in the way we think and where priorities are so the country it belongs to everyone.”
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.
Needless to say, most conservatives were not very fond of the suggestion.
