Two days ago:

Mom Publicly Confronts Scott Pruitt: 'I Just Wanted To Urge You To Resign'

Man! Can we get a similar meeting between this mom and Trump?

Stolen from twitter: Scott Pruitt has tendered his resignation on a gold tablet he had his interns purchase from one specific gold tablet maker in Marakesh because the ones in the U.S. cost so much less.

Somehow I missed this one:

Quote

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt directly appealed to President Donald Trump this spring to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions and let him run the Department of Justice instead, according to three people familiar with the proposal. In an Oval Office conversation with Trump, Pruitt offered to temporarily replace Sessions for 210 days under the Vacancies Reform Act, telling the President he would return to Oklahoma afterward to run for office.

Where would this clown have gotten such a hare-brained idea?

Quote

Trump has complained loudly and publicly about [Sessions' Russian] recusal for the last 14 months, and floated replacing Sessions with Pruitt as recently as April.

Ah.

No doubt the fountain pens and office supplies will fit nicely somewhere on [in] his person. The special phone booth will be harder to take with him.

I would expect things to get even worse for the environment with a more competent EPA director.

Trumpo would pardon him since Pruitt is his kind of guy.

Another Swamp Creature bites the dust (the coal dust in this case...)

(possibly the most corrupt cabinet member in history. nobody can say he didn't distinguish himself)

In any other era, justice would put him behind bars for the rest of his life.

'Read Scott Pruitt’s totally unapologetic resignation letter'


[www.vox.com]


"I believe you are serving as President today because of God’s providence. I believe that same providence brought me into your service. I pray as I have served you that I have blessed you..."

By being one of the most corrupt admin officials ever?


"I wish you Godspeed in all that you put your hand to."

That's disgusting!

… we will all pay for his meddling with the EPA for decades. The next up is no better than this one, but perhaps he'll keep the conspicuous consumption under better wraps.

Why did it take this long. The guy was so awful in so many ways.
Glad he is finally out.

The temporary new guy is just as awful in terms of policy. He is not as flamboyantly crooked as Pruitt though, which means he'll manage to destroy the EPA working under the radar more easily.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Yes, I'm more worried about the new EPA chief than Pruitt.
