The ones who swagger dont last as long: Jane Goodall doubles down on Trump-chimp comparison

amed primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall has once again compared President Donald Trump to a chimp in a new Jezebel interview.

“It’s certainly true,” Goodall told Jezebel. “When chimps are competing for dominance, they do a lot of blustering, swaggering, and intimidation.”

Almost exactly a year ago, Goodall told The Atlantic that then-candidate Trump’s debate style reminded her of “dominance rituals” performed by chimps.

“In order to impress rivals, males seeking to rise in the dominance hierarchy perform spectacular displays: stamping, slapping the ground, dragging branches, throwing rocks,” she told The Atlantic last September. “In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance ritual.”
