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.

    Nature and people are not commodities. They become just that when an infantilized declaration to an imagined savior is made, leaving man and nature as just that – hollow objects biding time, sealed off from what is.

    Note to Pruitt: I kind of like clean water, clean food, and clean air. If you don’t, please feel free to move to India or China.

    Wanna bet she gets a visit from Secret Service or harassed by trump flying minions.
    I sure hope his tactical pants protected him from the meanie teacher that had the audacity to want clean air and water.

    Pruitt is another fine example of why businessmen have no place in the government, he spends all his time writing CEOs of fossil fuel companies plotting how to increase there bottom line and they get off scott free polluting.

    Another fine example is King Rick, the businessman, turned governor of MI, instead of spending a few bucks for filters on the water system, they wanted to save money and the whole city of Flint MI was poisoned with lead and the children will be affected for the rest of their lives.

    Good for Kristin Mink. She was polite, she was articulate and she had justice on her side. I certainly hope that the Sidwell Friends School applauds her public witness today. It was a truly Quakerly act and conducted in a truly Quakerly manner.

    People like Pruitt who are lining their own pockets and the pockets of the very rich who own them when they are supposed to be serving the American people deserve all confrontations they get. We, the American people, are faced today with a president and administration that has been trashing the Constitution every minute of every day since January 20, 2017. Like Ms. Mink, we can be polite but we have a Constitutional right and duty to express our dissatisfaction with what has been happening. It is not “uncivil” or “rude” to approach a politician who otherwise would be hiding from the public when he or she is in a public place and tell them how we feel.

    Pruitt also wanted Trump to fire Sessions and make him head of DOJ.
