    The Washington Post is one of the great newspapers in the world, which unlike the political porn many on the right are addicted to, actually has a journalistic process to protect the integrity of their stories. When you start denigrated the great institutions of our nation, including prominent members of the "4th branch of democracy", you are divorcing yourself from reality and starting down a treasonous path. You might as well just declare jihad on the United States...

    Corruption is corruption. Those that profit from corruption are living on dirty money.

    You must be joking. He should have kept the garbage Iran deal because of gas prices??? Unbelievable.
    Oh, BTW, we are talking about Pruitt here, remember?

    You claimed that Trump has nothing to do with oil prices going up. He most certainly does and now you admit it. Thanks.

You will never see me jump ship to appease the extreme far leftist, illiberal ilk that permeates this forum like the stench from last week's garbage heap, so save your wet noodle. I said Pruitt should be fired, but let's at least wait until the ethics probes are finished before we condemn Trump for not giving him the ax...

    And furthermore, when you give Trump ANY credit for his many accomplishments, you might have a point.
    Sorry, but until then...
    He has accomplished nothing much I've seen. Hired a bunch of corrupt incompetents, helped lead to a disastrous, nothing burger tax cut, we kick the can down the road on. The ONLY thingother than that might be NOrth KOrea, but no details on anything yet, and what did he actually do? As far as I can see it was more Kim than Trump. The econimic stuff, meh, short term is no indicator and it's not aqny kind of real measuring stick. OK, so he got a bad tax policy passed and maybe got lucky with NK, every other thing he's "accomplished", was mostly bad policy, for only the reason, to undo Obama, and look busy. Yeah, that's worth a corrpt scumbag in office?

    Yeah right....
    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.

    Why does Scott Pruitt still have his job?
    Rhetorical question?

    Because Trump is a corrupt imbecile who doesn't give a damn how corrupt Pruitt is. He wants Pruitt there, and dammit, Pruitt's staying - and that's that (folding my arms over my chest and scowling in my best Trumpian way). And Trump, as the rest of us, has already figured out that his loyal fan base will defend any action Trump does or takes. If Trump says Pruitt is a great guy, they all obediently repeat the lines that Pruitt is a great guy and is doing a great job (they get bonus points for attacking Obama while doing that). When Trump tires of Pruitt, and announces he has instructed him to step down, they will all say what a corrupt man Pruitt was, and what a genius Trump is for firing him.

    So you admit to proudly loving naked and rank corruption?

    Yeah, that's about right.

    What, like FBI agents claiming they will stop Trump from being duly elected, and then put on a team investigating him? Nah, that's your guys department.

    Nope, nothing like that whatsoever. Not even remotely rationally comparable.

    Good of you to be so open about your two-fisted support of naked and rank corruption.
