A mother confronted President Donald Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt on Monday, asking him to resign.
Kristin Mink wrote on Facebook that she walked up to Pruitt at a Teaism restaurant in Washington, D.C., Monday carrying her 2-year-old son. In a video, Mink is seen telling Pruitt how her son loves animals, breathing clean air and drinking clean water.
“I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out,” Mink, a teacher at Quaker school Sidwell Friends, said in the video.
Pruitt is seen quietly listening to Mink’s statements. The video cuts out after Mink’s speech. She said Pruitt had no response and left the restaurant before she returned to her seat three tables away.
An EPA spokesman issued a statement saying that Pruitt listened to the woman politely, which I agree he did, and that his leaving the restaurant had nothing to do with her.
I would like to point out however that Pruitt actually hired extra security because he was afraid of this very thing happening.
And this teacher certainly picked a reasonable target for her frustrations, Scott Pruitt is the swampiest of the swamp creatures in Trump’s cesspool of a swamp.

Two of Scott Pruitt’s top aides provided fresh details to congressional investigators in recent days about some of his most controversial spending and management decisions, including his push to find a six-figure job for his wife at a politically connected group, enlist staffers in performing personal tasks and seek high-end travel despite aides’ objections.
The Trump administration appointees described an administrator who sought a salary that topped $200,000 for his wife and accepted help from a subordinate in the job search, requested aid from senior EPA officials in a dispute with a Washington landlord and disregarded concerns about his first-class travel.
The interviews conducted by staffers for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee late last week shed new light on the EPA administrator’s willingness to leverage his position for his personal benefit and to ignore warnings even from allies about potential ethical issues, according to three individuals familiar with the sessions, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the ongoing investigation.
Oh yeah, he’s a scumbag.
I think I agree with Maxine Waters on this.
These people who are part of the Trump criminal organization should not get a moment’s peace and should be confronted during meals, at entertainment venues, and even in a damn bathroom stall, until they either quit or realize that they are not welcome out here mingling with the real Americans.
