When asked what advice he would like to give President Donald J. Trump, former Vice President Al Gore responded, “Resign.” The comment from the progressive politician turned filmmaker, can be watched at the start of the video embedded below.
The video was published Thursday on LAD Bible, the United Kingdom’s largest entertainment website.
Al Gore didn’t meet with LAD Bible to talk about President Donald J. Trump, however. He was there to discuss climate change and his new documentary, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” which was released in U.S. theaters earlier this month and is reportedly drawing small crowds.
It’s not as if Al Gore’s call for Trump to resign is part of the new anti-Trump movement that has taken steam after the Unite the Right event in Virginia. The failed presidential candidate (2000) recorded the interview before the premiere of Gore’s film in the U.K. on Aug. 10., the events in Charlottesville took place on Aug, 12
Gore, who lost to George Bush in the 2000 election, remains angry about President Donald J. Trump pulling out of the Paris climate accord and not giving his global warming theory the kind of attention and acceptance he thinks it should get.
Back in 2006, the former vice president predicted that “the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years.” Gore’s warning was based on the fear-mongering used by the Left when selling the idea of climate change.
Gore warned of a doomsday if all countries failed to come together to take “drastic measures” to counteract what he saw as man-made global warming. He outlined his warning in a documentary he produced, titled, “An Inconvenient Truth.” He also lined his pockets through selling the film and its theories. But, as noted above, his new film has been a box office flop.
To that end, most of the interview is focused on Al Gore’s perceived threat to life on this planet from climate change and the fossil fuel industry’s campaign to undermine the science behind it.
Al Gore and his far left followers attempted to make his movie a referendum on President Donald J. Trump. “By filling theaters, we can show Donald Trump and the other climate deniers in the White House that the American people are committed to climate action –– no matter what they do, say, or tweet!” said Al Gore in a letter he wrote, promoting the film on his Facebook page.
ABOUT AL GORE
Albert Arnold Gore Jr. (born March 31, 1948) is an American politician and environmentalist who served as the 45th Vice President of the United States from 1993 to 2001 under President Bill Clinton. Gore was Clinton’s running mate in their successful campaign in 1992, and the pair were re-elected in 1996. At the end of Clinton’s second term, Gore was selected as the Democratic nominee for the 2000 presidential election but did not win the election. After his term as vice-president ended in 2001, Gore remained prominent as an author and environmental activist, whose work in climate change activism earned him (jointly with the IPCC) the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.
Gore was an elected official for 24 years. He was a Congressman from Tennessee (1977–85) and from 1985 to 1993 served as one of the state’s Senators. He served as Vice President during the Clinton administration from 1993 to 2001. In the 2000 presidential election, in what was one of the closest presidential races in history, Gore won the popular vote but lost in the Electoral College to Republican George W. Bush. A controversial election dispute over a vote recount in Florida was settled by the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled 5–4 in favor of Bush.
Gore is the founder and current chair of the Alliance for Climate Protection, the co-founder and chair of Generation Investment Management and the now-defunct Current TV network, a member of the Board of Directors of Apple Inc., and a senior adviser to Google. Gore is also a partner in the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, heading its climate change solutions group. He has served as a visiting professor at Middle Tennessee State University, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, Fisk University, and the University of California, Los Angeles. He served on the Board of Directors of World Resources Institute.
Gore has received a number of awards including the Nobel Peace Prize (joint award with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2007), a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album (2009) for his book An Inconvenient Truth, a Primetime Emmy Award for Current TV (2007), and a Webby Award (2005). Gore was also the subject of the Academy Award-winning (2007) documentary An Inconvenient Truth in 2006. In 2007, he was named a runner-up for Time’s 2007 Person of the Year.
