In a Tea Shop, Teacher Takes Action on Pruitt’s Climate Denial

July 3, 2018

Scott Pruitt was looking for a quick lunch with a Fat Cat, not a can of WhupAss – but that’s what this brave woman served up…

UPDATE: Pruitt resigns – The Hill:

“I have accepted the resignation of Scott Pruitt as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency,” President Trumpannounced in a tweet. “Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this. The Senate confirmed Deputy at EPA, Andrew Wheeler, will on Monday assume duties as the acting Administrator of the EPA. I have no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting EPA agenda. We have made tremendous progress and the future of the EPA is very bright!”

Fox has Pruitt’s resignation letter: Barf Bag recommended.

Mr. President, it has been an honor to serve you in the Cabinet as Administrator of the EPA. Truly, your confidence in me has blessed me personally and enabled me to advance your agenda beyond what anyone anticipated at the beginning of your Administration. Your courage, steadfastness and resolute commitment to get results for the American people, both with regard to improved environmental outcomes as well as historical regulatory reform, is in fact occurring at an unprecedented pace and I thank you for the opportunity to serve you and the American people in helping achieve those ends.

That is why is hard for me to advise you I am stepping down as Administrator of the EPA effective as of July 6. It is extremely difficult for me to cease serving you in this role first because I count it a blessing to be serving you in any capacity, but also, because of the transformative work that is occurring. However, the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us.

My desire in service to you has always been to bless you as you make important decisions for the American people. 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 and enabled you to effectively lead the American people. Thank you again Mr. President for the honor of serving you and I wish you Godspeed in all that you put your hand to.

Your Faithful Friend,

Scott Pruitt

Huffington Post:

Kristin Mink, a teacher and the mother of a 2-year-old, was eating lunch at a teashop in Washington, D.C., on Monday when her husband noticed a familiar face a few tables away. Scott Pruitt, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, was dining with a companion.

“Instantly, I knew I had to say something,” Mink told HuffPost in a phone interview. “He’s someone I think about all the time. He’s directly impacting the future of the world.”

So she picked up her child, walked over to introduce herself and asked the man to resign.

“This is my son. He loves animals. He loves clean air. He loves clean water,” Mink told Pruitt in a video she later posted to her Facebook account. “Meanwhile, you’re slashing strong fuel standards for cars and trucks for the benefit of big corporations.”

She continued: “We deserve to have somebody at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, somebody who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children. I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out.”

    Headline: Horrible Librul Uses Small Child to Beat Up Pruitt, Best EPA Leader.

    • dumboldguy Says:

      What I want to know is why his security detail didn’t beat her and the kid half to death in the spot. Why are we spending all that money to “protect” Pruitt if they can’t stop this kind of schoolteacher terrorism?

      • Gingerbaker Says:

        They didn’t need to protect him. That was done by the shiny tactical pants.

        ;>D

        • dumboldguy Says:

          Yes, that’s likely, and the shiny pants also made it easy to slide him out the door—-if you haven’t heard, PRUITT just RESIGNED (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).

          I have been making calls and sending letters to my representatives asking that they grease the skids—-my Senators, Warner and Kaine, agreed that he needed to go. My Repugnant turd of a Congressman and Trump butt-licker—Rob Wittman, VA-01—-sent me an email in which he spoke of Pruitt’s ALLEGED misdeeds—-I’m going to enjoy reminding him of that during the campaign.

          • Gingerbaker Says:

            ‘Alleged’ is an interesting standard. Does he mean to imply that misbehavior – in Pruitt’s case actually publicly admitted on multiple occasions – needs to be resolved for (Republican) public servants to criminal law standards , ie, beyond a reasonable doubt?

            And perhaps only for criminal charges brought forward by a grand jury? Be nice to know his position, because his party has not held Democratic malfeasance to such a high standard for decades.

            Whatever happened to holding public officials accountable for the mere *appearance* of corruption or criminality? Too Eisenhower era?
