President Trump has just tweeted that he has accepted Scott Pruitt's resignation.


Donald J. Trump Verified account @realDonaldTrump 3 minutes ago

I have accepted the resignation of Scott Pruitt as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this. The Senate confirmed Deputy at EPA, Andrew Wheeler, will...

...on Monday 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!

Was he the guy who did a lot of travelling at taxpayer expense?

Huh?

'Pruitt Is the Swamp. Drain It.' Fox News's Laura Ingraham Really Wants Trump's EPA Head to Go


And Ingraham is not the only prominent conservative who has called for Pruitt’s firing: several Senators, including Jim Inhofe, Charles Grassley, and Joni Ernst have railed against the EPA administrator. In early June, Sen. Ernst similarly referred to Pruitt’s ‘swampiness,’ saying that he is “about as swampy as you get” in D.C., and calling on Trump to “look at his own Cabinet” if he “wants to drain the swamp.”


Look at all "Maxxine's Minions!"

Awesome.

Can't wait to hear what all the government supporters have been holding back on -- how much of a demon this man was.

From the linked report:

Just a day after a Washington Post report said Pruitt had pushed aides to help him find a six-figure job for his wife and CNN reported that he had asked Trump to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions and put him in his place—among other revelations, Fox news host and Trump supporter Laura Ingraham added her own voice to the growing condemnation of the administrator.


Ugh. Good riddance.

The new guy isn't really much better, as far as looking out for the environment goes.

Well, for starters, his most recent job was as an energy lobbyist. His biggest clients included Murray Energy Corporation, which proudly bills itself as the largest coal mining company in America, and whose CEO, Robert E. Murray, vigorously fought the Obama administration’s attempts to reduce carbon emissions and strengthen environmental and public health laws. Shortly after Trump took office, Murray, an unabashed climate denier, presented Vice President Mike Pence with a ridiculously pro-coal “action plan” that called for doing away with the Clean Power Plan, withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, eliminating federal tax credits for renewable energy, and—yes—halving the EPA’s workforce.

He's under like 14 investigations for a plethora of ethics violations and assorted swampy #. I wouldn't even know where to begin. In the last week, it was revealed by a whistleblower that he was having his aides edit his schedule to remove meetings with lobbyists before releasing to the public and that he had aides put his hotel stays on their personal credit cards and then failed to pay them back.

Those who are hoping for a major change at the EPA will be disappointed. Scott Pruitt's replacement is just like him, minus the scandals.

Unfortunately. The proverbial combo of feet + fire will usually shape someone up real quick, though. The catch is actually doing it.

Yeah, that's scary but true.

What Trump really needs to do is hire the person that knows how to hire the right people. Trump is terrible at hiring 'only the best people'.

Be diligent regarding his replacement.

The fight has just begun, not ended.
