    Will be awesome when your son dies before you of horribly painful conditions from being explosed to all those fracking sites, won't it dude? I know I'm excited for ya about that dude! Getting those damn brown people out of our nation so much more importtant than people's health, our nations lands, the environment, and ya know, it's all about having way more money than you can ever spend right?

    You Trump fans have no priorities past the ends of your noses....
    True far right conservatism, is based in selfishness, fueled by fear, and practiced by preaching that government always fails, then, when in office, proving it. Once accomplished, private entities, based on nothing but greed are there to replace government services and pick the meat off the bones of the people.

    WaPo: Pruitt enlisted EPA aide, donors to find his wife a job

    Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt used one of his aides to ask his big money donors for assistance in finding his wife a job, The Washington Post reports. The Post, citing multiple individuals familiar with the matter, said the EPA aide, Samantha Dravis, contacted Doug Deason, a prominent Republican donor with ties to the oil industry, for a job for Marlyn Pruitt in 2017.

    When Deason said he couldn't hire her because of the conflict of interest over the oil holdings, "he agreed to brainstorm other possibilities for her" with Dravis, who has since left the EPA, and Pruitt's outside counsel, Cleta Mitchell, he told the Post.
    It's like Trump added fertilizer to the swamp. His are the most brazen, and numerous, violations of ethics I've ever seen. The naked grifting and abuse of taxpayer money is astonishing. I have to wonder if the people of Oklahoma should be concerned about his conduct while AG and state senator. Surely he didn't just decide this kind of behavior was appropriate when he became head of the EPA.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    If this was over a year-and-a-half ago, Obama would have fired him. Trump supports the swamp, regardless of mere words to the contrary.

    I love how people aren't even ashamed to admit they love corrupt Republicans. That sure contradicts all the "drain the swamp" pleas, doesn't it?

    He won't even say the true reason why he loves pruitt. Which is, #liberaltears. It's the only true reason.

    All that matters is that they "stick it" to the lefties and then they can profit to their hearts content on our dime.

    Or all the hollering Trump himself did about pay-for-play.



    Why does Scott Pruitt still have his job?
