Don Lemon Suggests Adding Obama to Mount Rushmore “Front and Center”

by Paul Goldberg

CNN Anchor Don Lemon suggested while talking to Chris Cuomo that Mount Rushmore could be modified by adding former President Obama “front and center.”

Don Lemon:

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.

Chris Cuomo:

Add to Mount Rushmore. I think that’s first of all, it’s a more salable idea than the idea of taking away Founding Fathers.

Don Lemon:

So what’s wrong with all of us together thinking or reshaping our country so that more people rethink our country in the way we think and where priorities are so the country it belongs to everyone.
