Dr. Needleman is the name of a doctor in a children's cartoon, not real life.

I get the sense that this isn't what you were envisioning, but up until the wikibox I just assumed Gore had been ISOTed back into his past self and just sort of decided "right, fuck all this". Either way, the Gores' home life is probably rather odd.

Sprucing up an older concept.

Omari West (born June 8, 1977) is an American rapper, record producer, and political activist. He has been influential in the 21st-century development of mainstream hip hop and popular music in general. Born in Atlanta and raised in Chicago, West was first known as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s, producing singles for several mainstream artists, quickly gaining fame as a solo musician with his Higher Education trilogy. West is one of the world's best-selling music artists, with more than 20 million albums and 140 million singles sold worldwide. He has been a frequent source of controversy for his conduct at award shows, on social media, and in other public settings, as well as for his comments on the music and fashion industries, U.S. politics, race, welfare and class theory.

Intent on pursuing a solo career as a rapper, West released his debut album The College Dropout in 2004 to critical and commercial success, and founded the record label GOOD Music. After a car accident nearly took his life, he began campaigning for transportation reform, particularly the advancement of electric vehicles and public transit, as well a growing interest for healthcare reform, motivated by both major damage to his jaw sustained during the aforementioned accident and the deteriorating health of his mother, Dr. Donda West. In her memory, West founded the DONDA International company, proclaiming that the company would "galvanize amazing thinkers in a creative space to bounce their dreams and ideas" with the "goal to make products that people can actually afford." Later, when Congressional Republicans began targeting the National Endowment for the Arts for potential axing, West campaigned for its validity, taking advantage of his 29.4 million followers to spread the word.

This is by no means considered his most notorious political activity. During a presentation spot with actor Mike Myers during 2005's Concert for Hurricane Relief, West looked down the camera and simply remarked "George Bush doesn't care about black people." In response the subsequent conservative backlash, West doubled down, adding "You see a black family, it says, 'They're looting.' You see a white family, it says, 'They're looking for food.' For them it's been five days waiting for federal help because most of the people are black. And even for me to complain about it, I would be a hypocrite because I've tried to turn away from the TV because it's too hard to watch. Sometimes I imagine if I was down there, and those are my people down there." Additionally, despite being a wealthy businessman himself (having donated $2,700 to Bernie Sander's 2016 campaign, as well as $15,000 to several down-ballot and primary candidates through Brand New Congress) West was overtly critical of celebrities using their image to sell products, summarising it with a rather blunt argument; "Lady Gaga is the creative director of Polaroid. I like some of her songs, but what the fuck does she know about cameras?!"

REPORT: Vice President Gore seen panicking, swearing loudly at residence - National Enquirer, 1999

"Sources in the White House claim a 'noticeable and dramatic change' in the attitude of the vice president, describing him as uncharacteristically sarcastic, aggressive and, most worryingly, outwardly hostile to certain individuals in congress, such as Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.

i don't think this is explicitly what Blacken was going for, but what it reminded me of immediately is that SCP where Al Gore gets taken over by an alien invader and is in consequence basically just the Kang and Kudos version of Bush/Dole for the entire story line lmao

If I understand it correctly, the idea is "this is what @Blackentheborg would do if his mind were ISOTed into Al Gore's body sometime in 1999".
Yeah, as the header states, it's based on "Being Donald Trump", a TL from the Other Place where some dude's mind gets ISOTed into Trump's body just prior to his inauguration and uses his presidential power to rewrite the CW Supergirl series.

WI: Blackentheborg gets ISOTed into Al Gore but it's The Simpsons

On that note I like how the Wikipedia infobox has "Al Gore" in brackets, as if people in-universe are explicitly aware that the man calling himself Al Gore is not the same person as the 45th Vice President of the United States, and the only reason he hasn't been twenty-fifth'd and dragged away by the CIA for ungodly experiments is because people elected him despite that

He hoped to god it wasn't another Wall Street tycoon. They always made so much fuss.

Bob hated to think that, he really did, but the President had been relentless with those busybody financial types as of late. Ever since he'd be instated as what the press called "Gore's Witchfinder General", Bob was called into the Oval Office every other week to be told to go after a person or group that, somehow, the President knew about before anyone else.

It'd started before Bob was called back to the White House, when he was in northern California as an attorney. Word began to trickle down through his associates in the Justice Department that the then-Vice President stormed into the offices of Louis, his soon-to-be predecessor, and had a very intense discussion. Never mind how out of character it was for someone like Gore, who'd famously held his cards pretty close to his chest, it was a very specific point of order, as the Veep had suddenly become very, very concerned with the status of two punk kids from Colorado. He must have been convincing enough, since by the end of the week, the same two kids were in cuffs, awaiting trial for conspiracy to commit a massacre at their local high school using a cache of their parent's firearms and improvised explosives. A fluke, surely, they'd said. Maybe he'd just seen something on a security memo that his boss'd missed.

Then his boss was on TV, talking about how a taskforce had apprehended a terrorist cell in Florida, nineteen men affiliated with the militant Islamist group al-Qaeda, who'd been causing a fair amount of noise in the Middle East. Bob had actually done some digging when he had access to the paperwork; fifteen of them were citizens of Saudi Arabia, two were from the United Arab Emirates, one was from Lebanon, and one from Egypt. All of them were known to the CIA, which must have been why Clinton was so furious they'd been refusing to share information with the FBI. The interns in the room that day that the President had called both department heads down for an impromptu performance review all whispered the same odd detail -- while Clinton had done most of the talking, Gore was there too, sitting in a corner of the room making sure the President didn't forget any details he must've offered up. Again, a fluke, surely?

Not so. Bob had been up to his eyes in specific, miraculous cases since Gore had stumbled upwards into office. He'd been more than happy to have a short stint as Deputy AG, but a liaison informed him the President was asking for him personally, and he wouldn't take no for an answer. His job was immediately very, very busy; in his first meeting, an erratic Gore indulging in one too many afternoon tipples kept ranting about some credit union man in Nebraska, and how he wanted nothing less than his head on a pike. When he sat down with him the next day, the President, head in one hand and a mug of Cold Brew in the other, said much more calmly that he wanted Bob to open an investigation on House Speaker Dennis Hastert, which turned out to be pretty open and shut. Gore was pleased, as if the Republican they'd just arrested for habitual molestation was a test that Bob'd passed with flying colours.

It was clear to Bob that this wasn't a self-indulgent dictator picking off opponents, since the President went after as many members of his own party as he did the opposition. For every Hastert, Fink and Cheney, there was a Condit, a Biden, a Richardson. Epstien had, as aforementioned Wall Street tycoons tended to do, put up a loud and public fight, but Bob got to him eventually, just like he did with Madoff. The cabals behind Enron and DuPont would be a much harder nut to crack, but Bob was given as much time and budget as he needed.

But please, don't let this one be another Wall Street guy. He loathed how annoying they could be in the public eye.

"Bob, good to see you. What do you and your people know about Donald Trump?"

Ah shit.
