Rumsfeld Compares Obama To ‘Trained Ape’ on Fox News

News, Politics


This is absolutely disturbing. In an interview with Fox News, Donald Rumsfeld, the Bush-era Defense Secretary told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren that Obama is effectively no better than a “trained ape.”

Odd choice of words, no?

Here is the transcript:

“We have status of forces agreements, probably with 100, 125 countries in the world. This administration, this White House and the State Department have failed to get a status of forces agreement [in Afghanistan.] A trained ape can get a status of forces agreement. It does not take a genius. We have so mismanaged that relationship.”

“Ape” and “monkey” references have been proliferating among opponents of the president who keep insisting that they are not racist. Strangely, they just keep happening to use racist terms and comparisons in their criticisms of the first African American president in U.S. history.

Take a listen below and weight in; what do you think?
