Donald Trump Jr. isn’t the only campaign operative to have been offered opposition material. Al Gore did, too. As Gore told Stephen Colbert on his late-night show yesterday, back in 2000, the then-vice president was preparing for a debate against George W. Bush when someone sent a member of his campaign Bush’s entire debate prep handbook. Gore’s campaign staffer didn’t keep it, though—he took it the FBI and then recused himself entirely from the debate prep. Which is exactly what Trump Jr. did, right? Sigh.
When Colbert asked Gore if he has talked to Hillary Clinton aka “the only other living candidate who won the popular vote and did not become the President of the United States,” Gore told him he spoke with her right after the election. “She’s gonna be fine,” he said. “The country’s another matter.”
