A White House aide asked South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) last year how an interested party might go about adding another giant presidential face to Mount Rushmore, a source told The New York Times.

Here’s a hint: Noem greeted President Donald Trump with a four-foot replica of Mount Rushmore that included his face when he traveled to the monument for a speech on July 3. The tidbit was part of a Times story about how Noem — and others — appeared to be sniffing around for Vice President Mike Pence’s job.

Noem was the first to publicly reveal Trump’s desire to add his image alongside the 60-foot faces of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt carved into the mountain.

Noem spilled on a 2018 South Dakota version of Carpool Karaoke that the first time Trump shared his dream with her in the Oval Office, she thought he was joking, the Argus Leader reported.

“Do you know it’s my dream to have my face on Mount Rushmore?” he asked Noem, who was still in Congress at the time and running for governor. “I started laughing. He wasn’t laughing, so he was totally serious,” she recalled.
