Kristin Mink was at a restaurant when Scott Pruitt and some crony of his came in to eat. She walked up to him with her son and asked him to resign. And it’s all on video! Here’s an excerpt of what you get to see Pruitt confronted with.

Hi, I just wanted to urge you to resign because of what you’re doing to the environment and our country. This is my son. He loves animals. He loves clean air. He loves clean water. Meanwhile, you’re slashing strong fuel standards for cars and trucks, for the benefit of big corporations.

Kristin Mink posted her heroic video to Facebook.

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. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency U.S. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt

Watching Scott Pruitt’s stupid face go from “I am a friendly robot” to “Oh no,” is worth the price of admission.

  1. Thank you also. We have to shame them every chance we get. They are so used to just doing what they want with no retribution. Now let’s get Nunes, Gowdy, Gaetz, Meadows, Jordan…the real traitors.

    • “Now let’s get Nunes, Gowdy, Gaetz, Meadows, Jordan…the real traitors.”
      I would like to add the names Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to that list. As a matter of fact, maybe i should add the names of all Republicans to the list.

  2. This needs to done at every level of government!! Our rep’s are constantly asking their constituents to speak to them, let them know your concerns. Still waiting to get my public hearing notice from Nunes.

    Walk up and talk to these people, in front of their associates, friends, family, etc. This is war and this is how to fight it. Be civil, be direct, and hit with truths and the concerns of everyday citizens.
    The ones doing a good job can also get the publicity. Credit the good ones, and bash the evil ones .
    This is the approach all Americans should be taking right now. Crowds and signs are fine also. But a lot of good content is lost in all the shouting.
    But the brave ones like that mother, are the memorable ones, and the ones that will catch the media because it’s not the same old thing.

    • “Our rep’s are constantly asking their constituents to speak to them, let them know your concerns.”
      I don’t know who “your” Reps are, but here in Montana, we have Steve Daines as our Senator and we have Greg “punch him in the face” Gianforte as our Rep. Neither will ever hold a town hall and neither has ever ASKED us what we want or need. They are there for the money, the long term benefits and the perceived prestige only, and NOT for the people.
