Al Gore Compares Donald Trump to Derek Chauvin

 

Tennessee native and former Vice President Al Gore went on CNN this week and compared U.S. President Donald Trump to Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis Police officer accused of killing George Floyd.

Gore made the analogy while talking to CNN host Anderson Cooper about Trump not funding the U.S. Postal Service with additional money ahead of this year’s presidential election.

“During a pandemic, there are lots of older voters and voters of all ages with pre-existing conditions who worry they can’t breathe safely standing in line to vote,” Gore said.

“By tampering with the postal service he is in effect putting his knee on the neck of American democracy and trying to make it impossible for people to vote by mail.”

As The Tennessee Star reported in April, Gore has endorsed Joe Biden for president.

Gore had an online environmental pow wow with Biden that month.

During the live Facebook event – dubbed a Climate Change Town Hall – Biden accused Trump of ignoring science. Biden promised that, if elected, he would make the United States rejoin the Paris Climate Accords.

Gore, meanwhile, called Trump “the face of climate change denial and adding pollution to the atmosphere.” Gore then touted what he called the benefits of driving electric cars.

As The Star also reported in April, Gore said on Real Time with Bill Maher that as president, Biden could appoint former President Barack Obama as a “Coronavirus Czar.”

As reported last year, Gore won the top Climate Hypocrite Award, given to climate change alarmists who don’t practice what they preach. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) presented the award.

As National Center for Public Policy Research Senior Fellow Drew Johnson concluded in a report:

“Al Gore has attained a near-mythical status for his frenzied efforts to propagandize global warming. At the same time, Gore has done little to prove his commitment to the cause in his own life,” Johnson said.

“While Gore encourages people throughout the world to reduce their carbon footprint and make drastic changes to cut energy consumption, Gore’s own home electricity use has hypocritically increased to more than 21 times the national average this past year with no sign of slowing down.”

    Yeah, right! Kinda like the Vice-President Elect visiting Monticello with President-Elect Clinton (while on their way together to their inauguration in 1993) and famously asking the tour guide (referring to a bust of Benjamin Franklin), Who’s that?
