A few weeks ago, when I saw the picture of Trump posing at Mount Rushmore, I assumed it was just a trick of the camera – not even he, I reasoned, could be so pompous. But no. According to this Yahoo story, last year Trump actually asked the South Dakota governor’s office whether it was possible to have his head added to the famous monument. I find that staggering: how can anyone be so arrogant, so self-important, to make such a request? When you think about it, it’s quite stomach-churning that anyone could be so spoiled, over-privileged and immodest to think that they automatically rank alongside a nation’s greatest leaders.
