I have no idea but I think they should put a revolving door on the White House at this rate.

It’s Friday, July 6, and Scott Pruitt finally resigned.

The EPA lost its top grifter Thursday afternoon, as Scott Pruitt tendered his resignation to President Donald Trump. We don’t know, right now, which straw broke the camel’s back — it could’ve been the tens of thousands of dollars he spent on first class flights, the secret calendar he used for private meetings with industry representatives, or maybe he just couldn’t take getting yelled at in a restaurant by a woman and her bemused toddler. (Trump told reporters on Air Force One there was “no final straw.”)

Whatever led to Pruitt quitting, that boy is gone.

Scott Pruitt was likely the most scandal-ridden, brown-nosing, oil-loving, climate-denying administrator to ever walk the halls of the EPA. Fancy lotions, tactical pants, Chick-Fil-A? That’s drama. Secret phone booths? A 24/7 security detail? That’s intrigue. Getting your aides to pay for your hotel rooms? That’s petty.

Pruitt was a veritable scandal-factory of his own making, and the wrongdoings were so juicy we literally couldn’t look away! I mean, the dude spent over 1,500 taxpayer dollars on a dozen fountain pens. Pens!

As time went on, it began to seem like Pruitt didn’t actually care about how many bridges he burned, how many federal investigations were launched, or even whether other members of the GOP were calling for his resignation. But ethical misdeed focused attention on the work he led: dismantling decades of environmental regulations, cutting EPA staffing numbers to below Reagan-era levels, and striking mentions of climate change from the agency’s website.

People got mad! They marched, wrote letters, signed petitions, and sent the EPA multiple copies of Global Warming for Dummies.

No wonder the administration rails against “fake news.” Real journalism was able to take down a Trump loyalist. BOY. BYE.

Need-to-know basis

And just as the old smog burned off, a new cloud moved in. Let us (reluctantly) introduce you to the new head of the EPA, Andrew Wheeler, a coal lobbyist and former legislative aid/best buddy to Oklahoma Republican Senator Jim Inhofe. (Yes, THE Jim Inhofe — the one known for his wild anti-climate change rhetoric and for bringing snowballs to the Senate floor.)

As an energy lobbyist, Wheeler’s biggest clients included Murray Energy Corporation, which touts itself as the No. 1 coal-mining company in the country. Murray Energy also happens to be the company that handed the Trump administration a three-page list of environmental regulations it wanted rolled back. Officials have already made it more than a third of the way through — and it’s hard to imagine that Wheeler doesn’t have a plan to complete the checklist.

In his downtime, Wheeler works for the Washington Coal Club. I kid you not. He’s the vice president of a small group of 300 coal groupies (producers, lawmakers, business leaders, policy experts, etc.) whose goal is to save the dirty future of dirty coal. Wheeler loves coal so much that he recently had to recuse himself from government deliberations over the industry’s future.

There isn’t much ideological difference between Pruitt and Wheeler. They both want to limit the EPA’s regulations over oil. But unlike Pruitt, Wheeler knows how to play the game. He won’t get caught buying expensive pens and lotion. He’ll work the system from within and leave us feeling bamboozled as he quietly walks back every environmental protection in place.

A revolving door of Scumbags.

Draining the swamp.

If you look at Pruitt's history, meaning in a time long ago before Trump ruled the land and Nazis lurk in every shadow, he was a dude that had to go.

Now he's gone.

Like it or not, Trump's making true on that promise, even if he doesn't always mean to. So many high profile people have either quit, been fired, or been disgraced in the public eye in the last two 20 months.

It's a thing of beauty.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Are you talking about people from his own administration? And if you aren't then who are you talking about?

Yes. I'm also talking about all of those who quit their cushy jobs based off of their "principals".

Yup. Look him up on Wikipedia and see his less than desirable history before that fact. Oklahoma was lucky to be rid of him and should be thanking Trump for taking him off their hands. Now he's rightfully unemployed. Should probably be in jail too if it were a fair world.

I know right? Jack acts as though he doesn't realize these people resigning, these corrupt and inept people, were people Trump selected.

I already answered the question.

Care to reword this reply?



And if you're going to pretend that there aren't plenty of Democrats who have quit their job since Trump was elected instead of standing their ground when they were on the front lines to do so, I'm sure some prime examples can be pulled from these boards. I'll bet you've named a few of them yourself, while exclaiming with glee how defiant they were to the Orange One, actually.

Hate to burst your bubble there Six, but if you're talking about the White House
and government positions, most of those folk were Republicans (so-called), with
a handful of Democrats that were rudely shown the door (thank you, don't let the
door hit you in the ass). Not to mention the handful of Republican Congress members
who have tendered their resignations ("there are 44 house Republicans that have
announced they are retiring, running for another office or resigning outright,
including Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan," source: CNN Politics, updated June 5, 2018 by Sam Petulla and Jennifer Hansler).

former EPA employee who happens to be a devout Trump supporter.

It's not my bubble. It's reality. There have been a lot of top level officials who were Democrats who have resigned because they simply "couldn't work for Trump". You guys have proudly posted about it here when it happens. Not my fault your selective memory isn't serving you today.
