Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 18, 2016

Donald Trump's antics remind famed anthropologist Jane Goodall of the primates she spent decades studying in the wild. "In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals," Goodall 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." Goodall added, "the more vigorous and imaginative the display, the faster the individual is likely to rise in the hierarchy, and the longer he is likely to maintain that position."

To date, we've not seen Trump drag branches or throw rocks, although anything is possible. Instead of physical displays, the Republican presidential nominee has stuck to verbal ones --; bragging about his genitals, launching personal attacks and resorting to racist and sexist insults.

I'd vote for Jane Goodall for president before either of the two apes being offered.

Translation: It's the chimps' fault for behaving like Donald Trump.

It's a good thing he doesn't have more melanin in his skin, or else this would've been "way-sthisthst."

That was funny, I like the part where he talks about Trump's mom F##king apes. Lots of laughs, wonder how long it would stay posted if we changed it to Obamas mom?

More hate from the leftists.

Cannot win in the arena of ideas so they resort to insults and calling names.

Something tells me if I said the same thing about Obama, I would be banned for racism. Glad to know the double standard is alive and well.

Definitely a double standard remember ChimpyMcBushHitler?

I appreciate the comedic value of this video, but let's face the facts: Barack Obama is chief chimp in our animal kingdom, the rest of us are peon tarsiers in any adequate comparison.

Vote Jill Stein to reform the corrupt D.C. animal kingdom!

Chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans have been living for hundreds of thousands of years in their forest, living fantastic lives, never overpopulating, never destroying the forest. I would say that they have been in a way more successful than us as far as being in harmony with the environment.
