Former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Jalen Rose tweeted a video demanding people stop using Mount Rushmore as a measuring stick for greatness.
“Let’s stop using the term Mount Rushmore when we talking about our favorite rappers, when we talking about our favorite movies, we talking about our favorite players. I know you’re going to see this video and I know you’re going to take action,” Rose told his followers.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem vowed to defend the American presidents on the monument in her state.
“The four men on Mount Rushmore were amazing, flawed American leaders who helped make America what it is today – the greatest country the world has ever known. To the woke leftists obsessed with attacking these leaders, I’ve got news for you: not on my watch,” Noem stated on Twitter.
