Al Gore Predicts Trump's Exit

By Chris Sosa, AlterNet

10 August 17


l Gore reportedly drew laughs from a European audience at a premiere of his new documentary when he insinuated that President Donald Trump might be ejected from office.

Gore is currently touring the globe with his latest environmental movie, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power."

"We're only six months into the experiment with Trump. Some experiments are ended early for ethical reasons," Gore said to the filmgoing audience. While he acknowledged his comments were "provocative," he refused to retract them.

Gore also expressed confidence in the environmental future of the U.S. despite Trump's withdrawal from the Paris agreement. He believes that American cities, states and corporate leaders will ignore their president and meet U.S. obligations anyway.

"We have a global agreement and the American people are part of this agreement in spite of Donald Trump," Gore said.

He reassured the foreign audience that the U.S. will "soon once again" have a president who is committed to combatting the global climate crisis.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

I have no doubt that they will get Trump. I saw an interview with Pat Buchanan who was part of Nixon's team and he said over and over, "they are going to get him [Trump]."

It may take several years. The 2018 elections will be held under the cloud of this soft coup by the intelligence/de fense agencies and the major media.

Gore is wrong on this however:

"He reassured the foreign audience that the U.S. will "soon once again" have a president who is committed to combatting the global climate crisis."

Obama had some nice words but no action at all. Bush was an oil man and took the US backwards. He withdrew from the Kyoto protocols and also set coal power plants free from pollution controls

The Deep State is just a newer name for the military industrial complex. This ruling force in the US is committed to oil and military. The military is the single most polluting cohort in the world. The next president will be their tool. Fracking and oil pipes will be the law of the land, as it always has been.

They hate Trump because he does not go down on his knees before them, as the Clintons did so well.

Why should Trump "go down on his knees" before the ruling elite? He's a member. He may not be a military contractor or ever have worn a military uniform, but face it, he's "connected"--in the Mafia sense of the word.

Thanks, by the way, for finally defining the "Deep State" as it exists in your mind. Now all the conspiracy nuts who flock to read your posts have a more specific target.

Trump may be rich but he's not an insider. In the same way you may be intelligent but you're not a thinker.

The government is like window-dressing pretend ...
there is no democracy or representation of the people
going on in this country any longer.

It is all just a group of corporations who figure out how
to suck more and more money from all of us and remove
our power and opportunities.

I love that the other 189 countries doubled down once the idiot pulled out of the Paris accord. I think there may have been two reasons. One would have been to show Trump what a jerk he is; but the other may well have been to stick it to the US after us being the bully nation for so long.

If the Trump era has one good effect besides the awakening of the grassroots Progressives; it may be to unseat our bloody throne and strengthen other nations. I would like to see the rest of the world see our weakness and go against us on every war. It won't stop Trump but it sure will tie the hands of any decent President who actually cares about how we are seen in the world.

The longer Mr. Trump remains president, the more likely he will be judged by future generations of historians as being lower on the scale of effective presidents. He has probably tanked it as of this moment, but a resignation for (mental) "health purposes" would we welcomed by many as a sign that he has realized how futile and destructive his efforts have been thus far and has retained enough rationality to take the final, necessary step. He would then have truly earned the acclamation he seems to so sincerely desire, and he would be free to spend a lot more time out on his beloved Florida golf course than a stuffy room in Washington devising new insults for members of his staff and the press.

Clearly, be very aware of what your thinking and looking for.
It's all very well to squawk about booting Trumpf, but what exactly are you going to replace hime with ???????????????
As things currently stand, from where I sit, there's not one person qualified or capable of replacing him. When you find someone who is, come back here and we'll discuss it further.

There are many people who are qualified and capable if replacing Trump, but none of them are Republicans,so they probably won't get the chance until the next election cycle.

Certainly none of the current Republican political leadership has demonstrated the combination of knowledge, wisdom, humility, and courage needed by an effective executive.

Honestly, I hate Trump.
I hate Republicans for the most part.
I hate Libertarians ... and I don't like many Democrats.

All of our Presidents have more or less been Trump in
some ways ... that is, mostly we never the real people.
At least thanks to Trump's Tweets we know what a loon
he is.

My biggest hope is that this Trump Presidency will
make a lasting and permanent impression on the
American people that billionaires, businessmen and
"deal-makers" are not good leaders. There is nothing
that makes someone like Trump a good leader and mostly
everything that makes him and others a bad one.

The mental illness from which Donald Trump suffers does not allow him to comprehend he is mentally ill. He will die thinking he was right all the time and that the rest of the world is crazy.

Trump should be safe then, Gore has never accurately predicted anything.
+20 # CL38 2017-08-11 12:10
Gore has been completely accurate in predicting and documenting global warming.

Looks like it's you, "old school conservative" who is refusing to face reality, like the rest of your destructive/cor rupt party.

Perhaps Futhark can tell us why Mike Pence would be an improvement?

What does that say of RR on this site, who agrees with him and things he's a hero? (See above.)

American Democrat here I love America raised my kids here there is to much to just give we democrats don't give up we are here for the long hall.

Mike, I agree with you, but I sure wish you would learn to write.

Sorry, but I loved the first global warming movie,
but this sequel is terrible.
Nothing but shots of Gore waddling all over the world,
and of all the crazy things many shots of Gore sitting
in chairs getting his face made up like a model.

What kind of idiot thought that was the best use of the
film, and did Gore not even pay any attention this what
this movie was looking like or is he just tone deaf?

This movie was really terrible ... a puff piece on a
bloated has-been who does not need puffing.
