Skip to comments.Trump Is Like an Aggressive Chimp and May Not Last Long as President, Says Jane Goodall

Primatologist Jane Goodall has made her name studying chimpanzees for over half a century. So, if anyone can deduce a distinct correlation between a brash chimp and the egoistic hubris of, say, the president of the United States, its Goodall.
Pre-election, last October, Goodall made a comparison between then-Republican candidate Donald Trump and the primates she has devoted her life to understanding.
In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals, she told the Atlantic.
In order to impress rivals, males seeking to rise in the dominance hierarchy perform spectacular displays: Stamping, slapping the ground, dragging branches, throwing rocks.

Don’t feel like getting zotted tonight, so I best just leave this one alone

Didn’t she get her FACE RIPPED OPEN by some primate ‘friend’ of her’s, or was it someone underpaid intern hoping to get a ‘degree’?

Studying chimpanzees for half a century qualifies her to comment on American politics, how??
Maybe he is the alpha chimp. Wonder if she considered that?
President Trump sure does get the old hags riled up.
Yes because being an expert in anything also makes you an expert on why a Republican President is bad....unless you disagree about the Republican President being bad, in which case it doesn't.
“Goodall is an ugly woman, inside and out.”
Good lord,when I first saw your post I thought it was about Roger Goodell. I almost dropped dead. :-)
I think that it was Jesse Jackson who made a gonad comment about Obama. But I would never go THERE in this discussion...
She would be a good mate for Juan McLame or Crooked Hitlery, ya think?
The Commie useful idiots to the are piling on. Many, like Jane Goodall, are doing it to gain relevance after their glory in the sun has faded and economic problems have risen.
After this comment, she went on to talk to a trash can for an hour and eat a shoe for dinner.
