The EPA’s Scott Pruitt was confronted by an activist at a local DC restaurant today in what has unfortunately become the new normal. The activist lectured him and then posted a Facebook video bragging that he abruptly ended lunch and “fled the restaurant”. You can see in the video that Pruitt had finished lunch as the woman holding her 2-year-old son confronted him but she twisted the reality to make herself look like a badass. She obnoxiously demanded his resignation and told him the country deserves an EPA administrator who “believes in climate change.” The Democrats continue to prove they are bitter and divisive. Watch the video below and tell us what you think. We know we wouldn’t have been so nice.
EPA head Scott Pruitt was 3 tables away as I ate lunch with my child. I had to say something. This man is directly and significantly harming my child’s — and every child’s — health and future with decisions to roll back environmental regulations for the benefit of big corporations, while he uses taxpayer money to fund a lavish lifestyle. He’s corrupt, he’s a liar, he’s a climate change denier, and as a public servant, he should not be able to go out in public without hearing from the citizens he’s hurting.

Kristin Mink, a Washington-based elementary school teacher, posted a video on Facebook of the encounter, which occurred at Teaism — an environmentally-conscious restaurant near the White House that strives to become completely GMO-free.
“This is my son, who loves animals, who loves food and air, who loves clean water,” Mink told Pruitt while holding her son, her video shows:
Mink went on to list a number of environmental regulations Pruitt has rolled back since becoming President Trump’s EPA czar. She also referenced several of Pruitt’s ethical scandals, including his renting a Capitol Hill condo at an impossibly affordable rate from a well-connected fossil fuel lobbyist.
“We deserve to have someone at the EPA who actually does protect our environment, somebody who believes in climate change and takes it seriously for the benefit of all of us, including our children,” Mink told a dead quiet Pruitt.
“So, I would urge you to resign before your scandals push you out.”
In a subsequent Facebook post, Mink wrote Pruitt and his unidentified lunch guest rushed out of the restaurant immediately after she delivered her stinging rebuke. Two of Pruitt’s security guards followed him out, she added.
“This man is directly and significantly harming my child’s — and every child’s — health and future with decisions to roll back environmental regulations for the benefit of big corporations,” Mink wrote. “He should not be able to go out in public without hearing from the citizens he’s hurting.”
