Jane Goodall and psychologist liken President Trump to a chimpanzee

Imagine if Barack Obama is likened to a chimp, the cries of “Racism!” would be deafening.

Jane Goodall, 86, is a primatologist who became famous for her 60-year study of  wild chimpanzees in Tanzania, Africa.

Goodall, who has condemned President Trump for taking the United States out of the Paris climate change agreement, said the President is like a chimpanzee.

The UK’s Independent reports that Goodall told The Atlantic:

“In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals. In order to impress rivals, males seeking to rise in the dominance hierarchy perform spectacular displays: Stamping, slapping the ground, dragging branches, throwing rocks.

Northwestern University psychology professor Dan P. McAdams agrees.

Describing what he called a male chimpanzee’s “charging display” in an article in The Guardian, Adams said:

“The top male essentially goes berserk and starts screaming, hooting, and gesticulating wildly as he charges toward other males nearby. Trump’s incendiary tweets are the human equivalent of a charging display: Designed to intimidate his foes and rally his submissive base, these verbal outbursts reinforce the President’s dominance by reminding everybody of his wrath and his force.”

Likening President Trump to chimp dehumanizes and objectifies him, both of which are decried by the Left. But when it comes to “orange man”, all standards are forgotten and anything goes.

Jane Goodall needs to just retire and sit in her rocking chair on the front porch until such time as the Good Lord calls her home. It is insulting to me as an American citizen that she has made this analogy. There is no doubt that if Obummer had been compared to a chimpanzee we would never hear the end of it! So, why the double standard.

She needs to just stick with studying her apes. antifa, “black lives matter”, and the whole democratic party, are a much better comparison.

Jane Goodall needs her Depends changed…. If anyone had likened Obama to a Chimp there would have been an outcry of fury from the same people that mock President Trump daily. A movie should be made of Jane Goodall sleeping and it should be called “Bedtime for Bonehead”…

Too bad. She was a respected research. Now TDS has infected yet another.

But Jane, President Trump doesn’t “ook” & “eek” like a chimp, I’m surprised you didn’t say he’s like an orangutan!

And there’s only one group of people known for their wild gesticualtions.

“Designed to intimidate his foes and rally his submissive base”
Um, what? She clearly hasn’t studied Trump’s base.

As for his tweets, “If you don’t like them, turn them off and don’t read them.” Isn’t that what they’re always telling us when we complain about their public trash we find reprehensible? Like virtually everything on TV, cable, radio, and the web?

BTW, watching the interviews on 60 Minutes. Harris seems absolutely… stoned. Anyone else think so? I’m amazed.
