“Ulyssesius S Grant” meets his Shiloh at Mount Rushmore as Trump's son's girlfriend gets COVID-19

Apparently Trump thinks there’s something called “new far-left fascism”, whatever that is.

Strange how the official excerpts didn’t include the really provocative elements of Trump’s speech, as Trump obsesses over Confederate monuments at the base of a sculpture made by a Klan member.

Don Junior’s girlfriend Kimberley Guilfoyle tested positive for COVID-19. There were protests at the entrance to Rushmore with arrests.

The White House sent the pool the following copy of President Trump's remarks as prepared for delivery:

Excerpts from President Donald J. Trump’s remarks at South Dakota’s 2020 Mount Rushmore Fireworks Celebrations (as prepared)

There could be no better place to celebrate America’s Independence than beneath this majestic monument to four of the Greatest Americans who have ever lived!

Our Founders launched not only a revolution in government – but a revolution in the pursuit of justice, equality, liberty and prosperity. No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America. And no people have done more to promote human progress than the CITIZENS of our great nation.

Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.

This movement is openly attacking the legacies of every person on Mount Rushmore. […] Before these figures were immortalized in stone, they were American giants in full flesh and blood, gallant men whose intrepid deeds unleashed the greatest leap of human advancement the world has ever known. Tonight, I will tell you and, most importantly, the youth of our nation, the true stories of these great men.

We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on earth.

Those who seek to erase our heritage want Americans to forget our pride and our great dignity, so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America’s destiny. In toppling the heroes of 1776, they seek to dissolve the bonds of love and loyalty that we feel for our country, and for each other.

They would tear down the beliefs, culture, and identity that have made America the most vibrant and tolerant society in the history of the earth.

My fellow Americans, it is time to speak up loudly and defend the integrity of our country! It is time to summon the bravery and determination of our American ancestors. It is time to plant our flag and protect the greatness of this nation, for citizens of every race, in every city, and every part of this glorious land. For the sake of our honor, for the sake of our children, for the sake of our union, we must protect and preserve our history, our heritage and our heroes.

Here tonight, before the eyes of our forefathers, Americans declare again, as we did 244 years ago: we will not be tyrannized, we will not be demeaned, and we will not be intimidated! We will proclaim the ideals of the Declaration of Independence—and we will never surrender the spirit and the courage and the cause of July 4th, 1776!

Uplifted by the titans of Mount Rushmore, we will find unity that no one expected; we will make strides that no one thought possible. This country will be everything that our citizens hope, and that our enemies fear—because we will never forget that American Freedom EXISTS for American Greatness.
