REPUBLICAN CRACKS GROWING: GOP MEGA-DONOR SHELDON ADELSON CANCELS PLANNED MT. TRUMPMORE CASINO
Washington (eTruePolitics) – With criminal charges looming for current president Donald Trump, billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson has decided to pull out of a joint venture to build ‘Mt. Trumpmore Casino’ on the site of Mt. Rushmore National Memorial in the Black Hills region of South Dakota, eTruePolitics has learned.
In a transparent attempt this afternoon to stay ahead of the Adelson announcement, Trump tweeted, “Even though Shelly and I are sick and tired of so-called Indians owning American casinos, due to fake news coverage of my amazing presidency, we have decided to delay the opening of Mt. Trumpmore Casino.”
Framing the Adelson news as a “little teeny bump in the road,” Trump explained that he had unilaterally decided to put off adding his and Adelson heads to the Mt. Rushmore sculpture.
“A difficult financial decision,” Trump said, pointing to the loss of income to the Federal government.
“You know what visitors pay to get into Mt. Rushmore now? Zero, nothing!” Trump thundered. “Shel and I would be the best looking busts up there, especially mine, and we could charge visitors $20 bucks to get in. Maybe $30. Fake News hurts America!”
Trump added that his ongoing assault by the fake media wasn’t the only issue facing the moguls, pointing to Mt. Trumpmore’s “unfortunate” location in the Black Hills.
“That name could attract the wrong element,” Trump said, “so we can use this little extra time to find a more appropriate – and safer – location. God bless America!”
