Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 06, 2018

Scott Pruitt resigned as EPA chief Thursday after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly delivered a message from the president that it was time for the scandal-plagued administrator to leave, according to two people familiar with the situation. Pruitt didn't want to leave his post and was described as being devastated that he had to resign ... An early June disclosure that a top EPA aide helped Pruitt try to buy a used mattress from the Trump International Hotel was particularly embarrassing to the president, one of the people said.

Yeah, whenever I saw interviews with him I couldn't help but think "there aren't too many wheels turning in those eyes". He didn't strike me as very bright. Corrupt to the core, but not bright.

As for the WH firing him, it's just a PR move. The rate at which the swamp is filled has to be imperceptible to work. If it's rising too fast it becomes obvious that draining isn't your plan.

Pruitt will be sorely missed by the door on his way out.

I saw a sociopath's stare when I looked at Pruitt. Like any sociopath he doesn't get why other people conform to those suffocating laws.

Be not of good cheer. The guy replacing Pruitt is worse.
