President Obama got to meet a very distinguished ancestor of his during his African tour — indeed, she’s a renowned ancestor to all of us.

Watch as Obama touches the fossil of “Lucy” — the 3.2-million-year-old hominid ancestor of modern humans — and gets a good laugh when even the Ethiopian scientist guiding him along then works in a joke about Donald Trump.

    Not sure about the connection to Trump…

      It would just make most of feel better if we could separate ourselves from right wing nut jobs.

    • geaaronson

      Trump is a closer relative to Lucy than OBama.

    This is just outrageous to say about Mr. Trump. I think that all democratic candidates running for President should drop out of the race immediately! Because we should make everyone pay for their comments because we are all so sensitive about our feelings.

    Trump has never proven his mother wasn’t an orangutan.

    • Darsan54

      Stop insulting orangutans. Though he probably stole his hair from one.

  • BiteMeLiberals

    Obama looks more like a monkey.

    • Darsan54

      You sir are a cretin. And that is an insult to cretins.

      • BiteMeLiberals

        Truth does hurt.

  • Darsan54

    Not sure T-Rump is even human.
