Al Gore Calls Trump a ‘Would-be-Autocrat’ During Speech at Harvard

“We often say no man is above the law”

You just knew that Gore wouldn’t be able to get through this event without bashing Trump.

Campus Reform reports:

Al Gore calls Trump ‘would-be-autocrat’ in Harvard speech

Al Gore used his 2019 Harvard Class Day speech to indirectly criticize President Donald Trump and advocate for climate change regulation.

The former climate change activist, vice president, and presidential candidate shared many of his personal political beliefs in his commencement speech, which hit on the rise of autocracy and the hot topic of climate change, according to The Harvard Crimson.

“Supporters of authoritarianism define loyalty to America’s core principles as treason against its new would-be sovereign,” Gore states. “This explains the appeal to would-be autocrats of multiple bromances with extreme authoritarians, at least one of whom, in our current time, has been allowed to sink his teeth into America’s democratic electoral process and play with it like a chew toy.”

Gore also alluded to the accusations of Trump’s collusion with Russia.

“We often say no man is above the law,” the former vice president said. “Although the U.S. Justice Department’s current policy carves out an exception to that principle for one and only one person.”

Sorry, who?

“An autocracy is a system of government in which a single person (the autocrat) exercises lordship over a polity. The decisions of this autocrat are subject to neither external legal restraints nor regularized mechanisms of popular control”

I don’t see an autocracy, or an attempt at one. I do see a vigorous pursuit of policy changes approved by the voting public.

I read DJT’s orders. The are in good form, citing applicable law and sound reasoning.

The same cannot be said for several judicial opinions issuing nationwide injunctions on policy issues.

The administration could ignore some of them, but has chosen to follow the appeal route. This is not autocracy.

Al Gore wanted to be an autocrat paladin for climate change while living in his greenhouse gas McMansion and blazing around on his jumbo jet.

Al – I’m still looking for the “would-be autocrat” part. I think you meant to say “duly elected president.“

Go back to your punchbowl Al.

@Al Gore … Hey dumbass … had you not invented the internet none of this woulda happened …
