Former Bush Sec. Of Defense Donald Rumsfeld Compares President Obama To a Trained Ape

Former Bush Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld wasn’t content with disagreeing with President Obama’s foreign policy. He felt the need to compare the first African American president to an ape.

Video of Rumsfeld on Fox News’ On The Record With Greta Van Susteren:




VAN SUSTEREN: Is there sort of a way out of this? We are having this problem now where there is going to be an election soon. I guess that’s you know the best option for the United States, that the United States get someone that is friendlier?

RUMSFELD: He was friendly. Our relationship with Karzai and with Afghanistan was absolutely first great in the Bush administration. It has gone down hill like a toboggan ever since the Obama administration came in. Now, take for example, the fact that we have status of forces agreement, probably with 100 — 125 countries in the world.

This administration, the White House and the statement department have failed to get a status of forces agreement. A trained ape can get a status of forces agreement. It does not take a genius. And we have so mismanaged that relationship. And I think that he has tried to separate his harshness against the White House and the administration from the American people and the people that he appreciates that served in that country.

Rumsfeld, as you may recall, was part of the Bush administration’s in-house axis of evil that championed the invasion of Iraq, the opening of GITMO, and torture.

Rumsfeld’s comments went beyond disagreeing on policy. He went straight for the racist dehumanization of the current President Of The United States. Beyond being disrespectful to the presidency, Donald Rumsfeld insulted the man who is holding the office.

When people on the left discuss the unparalleled hatred that Barack Obama has faced as president, this is exactly the kind of thing that they are referring to. Rumsfeld wasn’t content with just disagreeing with the president’s foreign policy. He had to make it racial. He had to compare the country’s first African American president to an ape.


What the former Bush administration officials can’t stand is that this president whom they view with contempt as illegitimate has been more successful with his foreign policy than they were with eight years of cowboy diplomacy.

There is no greater argument for the failure of the neo-conservative Bush doctrine than the presidency of Barack Obama, but Donald Rumsfeld has shown that his hatred goes deeper than politics. Rumsfeld hates this president so much that he compared him to an animal.

The ugliness and disrespect for this president know no limits. Neo-con Donald Rumsfeld can champion torture and wars of choice, but he can’t stomach the nation’s first African-American president.

  1. Addled old man roaming around the fox studio exclaiming idiotic exclamations to idiotic employees watched by idiotic viewers who pass it on to their idiotic friends ; rummy is just that an old rummy.

  2. plain and simple…..this RACIST clown should be in prison as the entire Bush administration should be

  3. Let us not forget the Crimes of the Bush Administration and Rumsfeld was right in the thick of it all… The Bush/Cheney/Obama/Biden Administration did little for America but they sure got their PIECE OF THE PIE!

  4. And what piece of what pie did President Obama get? You are just as bad as Rumsfeld and you should be ashamed of yourself

  5. Yeah old Dumsfeld was such a military genius! Karzai suckered the Bush people for years. He got schools built, roads and bridges built, bags of money, knowing in the end he was going to tell us to get out. He should be on trial for war crimes with his cohorts. His “trained ape” comment is contemptible.

  6. Nobody gives a sweet F*CK what rumsfeld is ranting about, now wait, here… here… HERE IT COMES!!! I guarantee we’ll be the same paul ryan apologist spewing their “It wasn’t a racist comment” what dimension do most republicans live in?? anyone with even the slightest common knowledge understands that calling Afro Americans animals especially negative terms like APE- MONKEYS- COONS were common place for over two centuries in america. It’s truly unreal how idiotic and undereducated most republicans really are!! But I guarantee you if Obama called lets say, bill o’reilly a “CRACKER” all the sudden they’d hear the racism and would be completely, utterly appalled and wanna take to the streets in protest!!

  7. Rumsfeld is one evil S.O.B., he needs to meet up with the right person that will teach him to run his has been mouth.

  8. Rumsfeld was wrong about everything, he lied us (with Bush/Cheney) into wars which he said he doubted would last 6 months and how about the known knowns and the unknowns that we do no9t know about (or something to that effect)

  9. Wait a minute. Is this the same Rumsfeld who sent too small a force into Iraq, ignoring the advice of his professional military officers, and failed to institute any sort of realistic plan for the post-invasion phase of the operation, resulting in the unnecessary deaths of thousands of American and tens of thousands Iraqis? And he’s criticizing the competence of the Obama administration? If there were any justice in this country, Rumsfeld would be rotting in cell at Guantanamo as an Al Qaida saboteur.

  10. Rumsfeld sounds like he is getting senile. He was part of the clan that killed thousands of people in a foreign land as well as our troops. He is an idiot and always has been and proves how bad the Bush administration was. USA is in deep debt no thanks to this guy and his clan (Bush people ).

  11. Oh, like Bush was a trained ape, like that? At least Obama got Osama and didn’t have 911 happen on his watch! SMDH!

  12. Why is this guy still talking? He was/is an evil sociopath who profited greatly from the war in Iraq.

  13. Blair is partially correct.

    Asparatame was discovered in 1965 and approved in 1974 by the FDA; it was pulled by the FDA about a year later. I believe it received new approval in 1981.

    Rumsfeld wasn’t at Searle until 1977 and I believe he left around 1984 or ’85, so he was around while the company sought new approval.

    (I used to work there.)

  14. A failed secretary of defense from a failed administration. Yeah boy just who I want to listen. Go crawl under a rock you moron.

  15. This from a guy who said:

    As you know, you go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time. “Troops put Rumsfeld in the hot seat”. CNN. 2004-12-08. Retrieved on 2006-04-07.
    Responding to the question “Why do we soldiers have to dig through local landfills for pieces of scrap metal and compromised ballistic glass to up-armor our vehicles?”

    A world class asshole!!!

  16. Just a dated racist, closet queen thats trying to get some attention in his meaningless life…The President has been called every racist name on earth…one more means nothing.

  17. Yesterday it was Rush “boil on his arse” Limbaugh and today,” old man” Donald Rumsfield. Who’s next tomorrow. They seem to be having a field day while the president and his family are out of the country.
    Just let me at these idiots.

  18. What can we do to stop this hatred towards the president!?
    It’s at a fever pitch. Something has to be done. Besides the obvious, ah, yes,
    vote the republicans OUT! The Dems better get with it this time around!

  19. This man should truly be in Leavenworth.
    He should be tried in the world court for war crimes.
    He ordered the use of white phosphorous in Iraq.
    White Phosphorous is of course banned in war, according to the Geneva Protocol of 1925.
    White Phosphorous makes napalm seem like Jean Nate’.
    It burns the skin to the bone in minutes.
    When Rumsfeld got caught, he said they only used it for illumination on the battlefield.
    The Pentagon finally admitted it was used on “insurgents” only.

  20. Donny has plenty of money.
    I’m sure he cashed in on the 12.4 Billion in cash that was literally DROPPED in Iraq, shrink wrapped on palettes.
    The money all went missing.
    Go figure.

  21. Towards the beginning of the Obama Administration, Karzai actually complained that Mr. Obama wasn’t giving him as much money as Mr, Bush had. Bush gave Karzai bushels of money with no accounting. The US set up the bank of Afghanistan which became the family piggy bank. Mr. Obama put a stop to all that. Karzai hasn’t been happy since.

  22. Calling B-S-T on Obama profiting from war. The expose’s keep coming out about the W Crowd? They should be in prison…

  23. Exactly! My first thought was that if Obama referred to Rumsfeld as “one salty cracker” the right would explode in mispelled rage and cries of “reverse racism”.

  24. Just another scheming liar with no talent going after some mo money. Like Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld will end up in Hell … if there is a true God.

  25. racists clown is too kind a word for this war monger. The whole “shrub” Presidential appointed group should be in jail.

  26. Gee the Kochpublicans keep on coming up with wonderful words of wisdom from old guys. Rumsfeld – Cheney – McCain – etc. They wonder why they can’t win national elections.

  27. pattiepea..Hey don’t you know God is on his side! He is from the GOP so of course you know that means that what ever they do it’s just hunky-dory with the big guy…

  28. The GOP swine have become TOO EMBOLDENED with their filthy ilk! Rest assured, Joseph & Pattiepea: GOD IS NOT ON HIS SIDE, OR ANY of the GOP SCUM!!! HELL AWAITS THEM! Look at what happened with Senator Tom Colburn (OK). He stood on the House Floor, in the wee hours of the morning, telling “fellow christians” (lower-cased intentionally), to “Pray that someone doesn’t make it to the vote (he referred to the then terminally-ill {now late} Senator Byrd. He would neither confirm nor deny that he was referring to the late senator; BUT I’M MUCH SMARTER THAN A GOP FASCIST!!! I am an Independent Conservative, a one-time Democrat, but will NEVER BE a REPUBLICOMMY-TERRORIST!!! The POT (PARTY OF TREASON) needs to be voted out..PERMANENTLY!!!! Agreeing with terrorists about the President’s Nobel Peace Price? Cheering with glee because Chicago didn’t win the 2016 Summer Olympics? Glorifying former KGB Agent-turned Russian President Vladamir Putin as a “Great Leader,” and now this?

  30. “I can’t tell you if the use of force in Iraq today would last five days, or five weeks, or five months, but it certainly isn’t going to last any longer than that.”
    ~Interview with Steve Croft, Infinity CBS Radio Connect, November 14, 2002

    “We know where they are. They’re in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west, south, and north somewhat.”
    ~Interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News This Week, March 30, 2003

    Oh yea, a real bright one there.

  31. This apply to all you chicken hawks, the American Taliban and the rest of you cowards on the right

    Democrats and the White House hailed the conviction of Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law in a New York court Wednesday as vindication of the administration’s approach to trying terror suspects in civilian courts. Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday said it was important that Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, an al Qaeda spokesman “who publicly rejoiced over the attacks on the World Trade Center, faced trial in the shadow of where those buildings once stood.”
