Primatologist Jane Goodall Says Donald Trump Acts Just Like A Male Chimpanzee

Jane Goodall is probably the most well-known primatologist in the world, and when she looks at video of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump, the first thing that comes to mind is a male chimpanzee.

Goodall first made this observation back in 2016, and said Tuesday during an appearance on MSNBC that she still stands by her observation, telling host Ari Melber:

“I see the same sort of behavior as a male chimpanzee will show when he is competing for dominance with another.
“They’re upright, they swagger, they project themselves as really more large and aggressive than they may actually be in order to intimidate their rivals.”

Goodall also noted that Trump’s behavior seems to be contagious and has caused untold division and tension.

“[That] can have a ripple effect around the world.”

If you doubt what Goodall says is true, watch this video of a rage attack by a chimpanzee.
