One Ape and Another?

Koko just passed away in her sleep at 46. She had a vocabulary of 2,000 words and communicated via sign language. A kind and gentle soul. Let’s consider an image of Koko and Donald Trump. You be the judge about who is the great ape and who is an animal. Who is kinder and gentler. Who has the bigger vocabulary. Who many people will honor Trump at his eventual passing? Fewer than those who will honor Koko, don’t you think?
