Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 26, 2020

Soon-to-be-ex-President Donald Trump reportedly suggested more than once that he wouldn't mind seeing a granite image of his own visage on South Dakota's Mount Rushmore next to Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington; but since that seems to be literally impossible, some insiders are now saying he has lowered his sights to something more attainable: putting his name on a major airport.

More from the article...

...Anonymous White House sources said that Trump once asked what kind of "paperwork" would have to be done to make Trump International Airport a reality, and he also noted that no president would want his name to go onto an airport with a bad reputation or a timeworn infrastructure, according to a report in the Daily Beast.

Certainly there's no shortage of U.S. airports named after presidents and other prominent politicians -- e.g., John F. Kennedy International Airport, Reagan Washington National, Houston Bush Intercontinental and Washington Dulles International Airport (named after Secretary of State John Foster Dulles). But we're not aware of any president that personally asked to put his name on one....

Please please please let it be National Airport.

No airports, but a prison or 2 would be suffice IMHO. Preferably one he's jailed in.

I'd put my money on Palm Beach International, right next to Mar-A-Lago.

There's a polyp-checking governor in place there to help move things along...

It's funny that Trump still thinks anyone cares about what he wants.

All major international airports are in states that loath him.

Maybe Texas or Florida will give him something.

But, I doubt you'd want to name an airport after a failure.

Do any airports in russia need a name?
Trump has done more for putin than anyone else in the world.

Having some cemeteries named after him would be far more appropriate.

Will Trump International Airport Become a Reality?

Putin might honor Trump by naming an airport in his honor. After all, Trump was the greatest Russian asset ever.

I doubt any of the other POTUS asked to get an airport. What a ------.

Pyongyang Fat Orange Oaf Intergalactic Aerodrome has a Trumpy sort of ring to it. And maybe something in Slovenia for that slovenly First Lady who tramped her way to infamy and misfortune...

I could see that happening - in Russia.

We'll see if he defects, I guess.

(I've heard rumors that ex-presidents aren't allowed to defect, that they know too much and the CIA would eliminate the problem.)

Cheeto Jesus International.

Trump-Volgograd International Airport sounds about right.

TVIA for short.
