Al Gore got caught in a major lie in an interview with Jake Tapper the other day. He responded to accusations by the president that he uses a private jet while telling other people they need to live a green lifestyle. He said:

TAPPER: President Trump has gone after you directly when talking about this issue of climate change.

I want you to — I want to give you an opportunity to respond to something he said…

TRUMP: Al Gore wants to eliminate the combustion engine, essentially, and flies around the world on jets and pushes plans that would help create China, make it stronger…

TAPPER: This is a criticism we hear from conservatives all the time when talking about people like you or Elon Musk or Leonardo DiCaprio, that you, yourself, have a large carbon footprint.

GORE: Yes.

Well, I don’t have a private jet. And what carbon emissions come from my trips on Southwest Airlines are offset. I live a carbon-free lifestyle, to the maximum extent possible.

But we guess Gore forgot that he got BURNED by Sean Hannity over his use of a private jet years ago:

Maybe Al Gore doesn’t own a private jet, but he definitely uses one. At the very least his comments are misleading.

Also, don’t forget that in 2007 he refused to take a personal ethics pledge to consume less energy than the average American household. He has admitted in the past that he ‘sometimes’ has to charter a plane.
