About damn time!

Courtesy of NPR:

Scott Pruitt will no longer lead the Environmental Protection Agency, President Trump announced Thursday afternoon via Twitter.

“I have accepted the resignation of Scott Pruitt,” Trump tweeted. “Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this,” Trump also wrote.

The president also said that on Monday Andrew Wheeler will “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!” Trump said.


If Trump is expecting a pat on the back for this I would not hold my breath if I were him.

Pruitt was a scandal magnet, and probably almost as unfit for his job as Trump is for the one that he is currently stumbling through.

By the way, that teacher who confronted Pruitt in the restaurant, just a few days before he decided to resign has a question for Trump. 

Hey, it worked once.

        He already has and there is nothing going to be done about all the regulations Pruitt got rid of, besides all the thousands of dollars he stole.

    His replacement is about 10x worse than he was. Pruitt was a straw man for the GOP so that they could get Wheeler in place and truly burn it all down. What? Haven’t you all been paying attention?

    The GOP depends on the left to be blinded by “villain of the day” rather than look into their long game.

    This is one of those times.

    ““He came to me and he said I have such great confidence in the administration. I don’t want to be a distraction. And I think Scott felt that he was a distraction.”

    Insiders said Pruitt lasted so long because he struck an “adoring tone” with the president, palling around and “lavishing Trump with praise, telling the president he was ‘brilliant’ and a political revolutionary.””

    ” Pruitt’s swamp habits may be brazen and tone deaf, but he’s not alone. Trump’s Commerce Secretary recently exposed for pocketing nearly $6 million with improper divestment delays. His interior secretary under pressure for dealings with the oil giant Haliburton. Trump’s treasury secretary exposed for questionable taxpayer-funded travel, an issue that caused trump’s health secretary his job already and then there is trump’s housing chief, Ben Carson. He’s actually probably the closest to Pruitt in allegations of petty fleecing, like spending $31,000 to redecorate his own office.

    You take it altogether, this is a portrait of greed and self-dealing. It is worth remembering who it is that’s acting this way. The Trump cabinet is the wealthiest in American history.’

    ” “This administration and Fox News is something of a revolving door with people cycling in and out of both. While we’ve seen the news personalities go from the green room to the podium, today president is blurring the line even more. Essentially merging the two operations with the official announcement he has hired Bill Shine to run communications at the White House as his deputy chief of staff for communications. The former Fox executive resigned from the network last year amid accusations that he enabled a culture of sexual harassment at the network.”

    The environment is not inanimate, nor is it an object. We must honor it and economize. That is ethical. It is ethical because it is applied metaphysics.

    Pruitt’s “temporary” successor is just as bad and probably worse. He’ll keep up the destruction of the environment and the EPA without the outright theft of tax dollars. Maybe Pruitt was there as a cover for what is really being done? Who knows with the kleptocracy and wanton destruction of the federal government that is the Trump administration. Remember Grover Norquist wanted to “drown the federal government in a bathtub” and Steve Bannon, who is probably still on the federal payroll, wants to destroy it from within. They’ve both been GOP operatives for a long time. Trump is their cover story.

    “Kimberley Strassel, the relentless defender of President Donald Trump at the Wall Street Journal, wrote: “Lesson to other Trump officials from Pruitt resignation: Give the left/media/organized greens any molehill and they will turn it into K2. Most of the accusations were overwrought, but the barrage was overwhelming. Let’s hope an equally reformist successor denies them a repeat.”

    Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt agreed with Strassel.

    “Scott Pruitt is a good friend and a very good man, caricatured by the left and MSM. I hope he sets to work on a memoir ASAP and deals out a tenth of what he took. He’s a man of great faith and perseverance so he probably won’t, but the attacks on his family were unconscionable,” ”

    “In a city where damaging allegations often appear in the press anonymously, the increasing willingness of Pruitt’s one-time senior aides to publicly speak up about the conduct they witnessed was a testament not just to the severity of Pruitt’s alleged misconduct, but also the unfairness with which even Pruitt’s most loyal staff members felt they were treated.”

    ” Pruitt used his office for the pettiest of graft, betraying the public trust as a matter of course. He’s arguably the most corrupt Cabinet officer in modern American history, with few rivals before the era of Tea’PARTY. Pruitt’s list of scandals is extensive and almost unbelievable.
    “Citizenship carries obligations, and citizens who enter into the public sphere take on particular responsibilities. We ask them to act with honor and integrity, to do best by the people they are selected to serve.”
    “The story of Scott Pruitt isn’t just about his attacks on the environment or his corruption or his obvious political ambitions—he reportedly lobbied President Trump to fire Jeff Sessions and appoint him attorney general—it’s about the administration’s larger hostility to public service, its disdain for common interest, and its contempt for the collective good. “

    Much like Trump, Pruit’s replacement will be much worse.
