Hugh Hewitt: Trump at Mount Rushmore

On Friday night last week, the president gave a stirring and patriotic 4th of July speech at Mount Rushmore.

But the reaction from critics and today’s elite media is more telling even than any criticism I could give of the left.

From the Los Angeles Times: “At Mount Rushmore, Trump uses 4th of July celebration to stoke a culture war.”

And the Associated Press: “Trump pushes racial division, flouts virus rules at Rushmore.”

And I could go on and on.
