If I were Al Gore, I wouldn’t be going on television shows. I would be embarrassed to have been so ridiculous and so wrong over all these years.
But he has no shame, and any media that will still book him for interviews thinking he has something consequential to say also has no shame.
Gore took that lack of shame a step further with a disgusting remark in which he compared “climate change deniers” to the almost 400 law enforcement officers who didn’t respond for 77 minutes while people were being slaughtered by a gunman in a classroom in Uvalde, in an interview that aired Sunday.

From NY Post:
“We’ve got an election coming up. And this is time for all of us to step up,” he told NBC News’ “Meet the Press” in an interview aired Sunday.
“The climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred. They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots, and nobody stepped forward,” Gore, who served as vice president for eight years in the Clinton administration, said.
Seriously, Al Gore? You’re using the murder of little children and their teachers to try to push your climate agenda? That’s just so offensive and wrong. But because he has no conscience, he doesn’t get that. Not to mention demonizing the people who disagree with him by this remark.
He slipped in a “God bless those families who’ve suffered so much.” But too late; you can’t smooth things over with that.
Gore then claimed that “Democracy was broken” and for that reason, they needed to eliminate the filibuster to force through the Democratic agenda items.
“Our Democracy is broken. And in order to solve the climate crisis, we’re going to have to pay attention to the democracy crisis,” he told host Chuck Todd.
Gore pointed out the similarity between Congress failing to ban assault weapons with the inability to vote for climate change legislation.
”The same reason we can’t pass legislation to, for example, reinstate the ban on assault weapons is the same reason that we can’t pass climate legislation. We have a minority government. We have the filibuster, still, which ought to be eliminated. We have big money playing much too large a role in our politics, lobbyists for the fossil-fuel industry,” he said.
“We have got to rise to this challenge,” Gore said.
Um, no? If you can’t pass it in Congress, it could be there’s a reason why — you don’t have the votes according to the structure of our republican government. We are not a pure democracy–we don’t operate according to mob rule and we’re not supposed to. That doesn’t make our government “broken” — that is the fundamental nature of our government. The fact that a former vice president doesn’t even understand that says something about how ignorant Al Gore truly is.
Just like many other Democrats who are only concerned about Democratic power, Gore used to back the filibuster. He claimed that the GOP wanted to end the filibuster “to satisfy their lust for one-party dominance of all three branches of government.” Who’s pushing to do that now, Al?
But then again, who can forget ManBearPig, the terrific takedown that just perfectly nails what a grifter Al Gore is.
