Al Gore Suggests Trump’s Presidency Should Be ‘Terminated Early For Ethical Reasons’


by Michael Bastasch

Former Vice President Al Gore compared the Trump administration to an experiment that’s “terminated early for ethical reasons,” in an interview with MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell that also touched on the upcoming election and man-made global warming.

On global warming, Gore repeated to Mitchell the line he uses in nearly every speech: “Every night on the television news is like a nature hike through the book of Revelation.”

“Not only do we have this massive storm hitting the U.S., but simultaneously the Philippines is being slammed by another super typhoon, Mangkhut, Hawaii’s being hit by Tropical Storm Olivia, we just finished the largest fire in the history of California a month ago,” Gore said in the interview, which aired Tuesday.

Gore made no mention of consensus scientific assessments that find no evidence hurricanes are becoming more powerful or frequent. Florence also tracked over “abnormally cold” ocean water, according to temperature data.

One such assessment from 2017 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report found it’s “premature to conclude that human activities … have already had a detectable impact on Atlantic hurricane or global tropical cyclone activity.”

President Donald Trump thanked first responders and law enforcement for their aiding of hurricane recovery efforts in the Carolinas and Virginia. Trump also expressed his sorrow for the lives lost in the storm.

“There’s been a loss of life and may god be with them and their families. That’s a tough one. It’s tough to understand, but this has been a really difficult period of time for a lot of people,” Trump said in a video address released Tuesday evening.

Florence’s death toll topped 32 people as flooding continues in the Carolinas. Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane, bringing heavy rainfall and flooding.

Mitchell did not question any of Gore’s climate claims, and eventually the interview turned to the 2018 election. Gore admitted that Democrats did not do a good job in addressing the “deep concerns and anxieties” of middle-income Americans.

“You’re quite right that the stagnation of middle-income wages for more than 40 years has been largely responsible for this wave of populist authoritarianism that is now present, not only in the United States but in quite a few other countries around the world,” Gore told MSNBC’s Mitchell.

“I’m a member of the Democratic Party and I will say both parties have to respond much more effectively to the deep concerns and anxieties that Americans have been expressing and they have not gotten the kind of response that’s needed,” Gore said.

Gore said this failure resulted in Trump’s 2016 election victory. “This experiment with Trumpism is not going well,” Gore also said, adding he believed there are Trump voters who want to restore “checks and balances” by electing Democrats this November.

“You know, in science and medicine some experiments are terminated early for ethical reasons,” Gore said. “So these elections this November may turn out to be the beginning of a course correction.”

  1. Thanks Mr Gore. Glad to know that it’s all come down to YOUR perfect judgement. I hadn’t noticed that you had the deciding vote in the Constitution.

  2. Al Gore has become an embarrassment to responsible citizens of the U.S. His behavior in public is a testament to how someone can become overcome by his own obsessions. Truth always lies in the pudding. Gore doesn’t have the perspective to actually take note of how many ways the Global Warming theory has been discredited. But he keeps the fable alive. He is too full of the imagery of the savior riding in on a silver stallion. He believes he will be vindicated in the end. In the meantime he struggles to find credibility in the public domain.

    As a worldly man of significance, he has recently taken the opportunity to join many other celebrities in denigrating POTUS. Like most of his critics, Gore is unabshed in heaping disrespect on Trump, mostly because of his one-of-a-kind personality and his impromptu Tweets. Trump is definitely not cut from the same mold as any of his predecessors, but he is successful and he cares about America.

  3. You know if Al had said that the whole Demorat party should be disbanded because of ethical reasons, it would have been more believable and I think I could get behind that movement. But, in this case, Al is a Demorat, what does he know about Ethics? Never met a Demorat that knew any thing about ethics, truth or honesty. Poor Al, once more he is talking about something he has no knowledge of the subject matter. You would think he would get tired of working so hard to be stupid. First, claiming that “HE” invented the internet, then pushing the Global Warming B.S., Now Ethics and what a President should look like! I bet he loose a lot of sleep trying to figure out just how to be stupid each day.

  4. Al, was this decided before or after you ‘invented’ the computer ?

    Agree and enjoyed all previous comments…..nothing like an old fat has been to start a conversation!!
