President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.
“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.
The president’s rambling shocked many people on Twitter:
Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

How can anybody ever read transcripts from trump interviews and still think he is fit to be president? It's mind blowing.

He should be hospitalized. He’s clearly not well.

This something to be noted for the neurologist

Other people, however, were upset at The Hill for asking Trump the question in the first place.
Okay, the answer is standard word slaw, but seriously, who asks this? pic.twitter.com/2Njb8z5hJo

The Hill asked trump if he should be on Mt Rushmore and Politico threw a goodbye party for Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Inside the beltway rags doing their best to show the world what pathetic kiss-asses they are.

Why is this even a question one would ask him? Please stop putting ideas in his head. He’s crazy enough to begin with.

Asking Trump if he thinks he should be on Mount Rushmore…. I mean, I don’t get it. I don’t get how that is journalism. It’s something else entirely. https://t.co/dknLHn91nv
