Donald Trump Weighs In On The Killing Of Harambe The Gorilla!

Great apes gotta stick together!

Harambe the Gorilla has been pretty much the only thing we’ve been able to think about ever since he was killed when a 3-year-old boy fell into his enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday afternoon.

While we’ve already heard from celebrity animal experts like Jack Hanna and Jeff Corwin, as well as animal rights advocates like Kaley Cuoco and Lisa Vanderpump, it looks like Donald Trump has volunteered to be the spokesperson for bigots on the subject.

The man often compared to an orangutan, follically speaking, defended the silverback in a press conference on Tuesday, and while he may not be a fan of Muslims or Mexicans… he’s actually pretty humane when it comes to animals.

The racist Republican fell upon a rare moment of clarity while addressing reporters at Trump Towers, saying:

“I think it’s a very tough call. It was amazing because there were moments with the gorilla — the way he held that child, it was almost like a mother holding a baby. Looked so beautiful and calm. And there were moments where it looked pretty dangerous. I don’t think they had a choice. It’s too bad there wasn’t another way. But I thought it was so beautiful to watch that powerful, almost 500-pound gorilla the way he dealt with that little boy. It just takes one little flick of his finger. And I will tell you, they probably had no choice.”

We hate to admit it… but we actually mostly agree with Trump.

The Cincinnati Zoo won’t ever be able to get Harambe back, but hopefully his death will teach other zoos what not to do in similar situations.

What do U think of Donald Trump’s opinion on Harambe??
