I am surprised, not shocked as some are, that Scott Pruitt still has a job. I thought the axe might come over the weekend with him announcing that he was resigning to make more time for his family or some such bullshit. Instead, we get the vote of confidence from the head cheese puff.
What is going on over the past few days in Scott Pruitt’s land of never ending corruption…
Under Pruitt, EPA’s Sloppy Effort to Gut Eco-Rules gets Headlines, but is Faring Poorly in Court—Basically, the upside of the Trump presidency has been that the relative incompetence and lack of understanding about how government works means that a lot of the actions taken will not stand up to any kind of formal legal challenge. Big daddy Donny likes headlines, but he is light on actual results.
Scott Pruitt’s Level of Corruption is so High, it Even Shocks the Lobbyists Paying Him Off—Even the lobbyists who are paying him off are shocked by the level of greed and flat out corruption this man is capable of.
Tribalism put Scott Pruitt in Power. It May not be Enough to Save Him.—Pruitt is a creature of the swamp, but even his antics may make it expedient for Trump to dump him thus claiming some measure of ethical responsibility.
5 Lies Scott Pruitt Told this Week about his Mounting Scandals—It is obvious that no one in the Trump administration understands the microscope of the office. These people cannot shut up to save themselves.
Scott Pruitt, Fan of Taxpayer-Funded First Class Travel, Flies Coach When he has to Pay for It—He is in such mortal danger that on the few times that he has to actually pay for his own travel he flies coach. Wait a second…
Pruitt Faces Renewed Questions Over Cost of Security Detail—Let this sink in for a bit—19 agents on a 24 hour security detail and a fleet of 19 vehicles. This is for the head of the EPA.
Pruitt’s Revealing View on Lights and Sirens—Big boy Pruitt likes to think he is so important and in danger that he needs to run around Washington D.C. with the lights and sirens blazing even if he is just late to dinner. This is what passes for leadership in Trump’s America.
Scott Pruitt Hasn’t Saved Taxpayers Anything—The logic of Pruitt’s defenders here is amazing. They are trying to justify his corruption by claiming that he has saved money through his deregulation. WTF?
And, just so you remember that Scott Pruitt is not the only horrible person in Washington D.C. remember this guy:
Rep. Blake Farenthold is the one in the ducky pajamas.
