The fix is in. Democrats finally manufactured enough outrage to force Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt to resign. Pruitt’s resignation had nothing to do with his job performance. In fact, his legacy of regulatory reform will continue to have long-lasting benefits for small businesses and hard-working American families.
Recognizing this, President Trump lauded Pruitt on his way out, tweeting:
“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 White House was happy with Scott Pruitt’s job performance. Pruitt’s colleagues were happy with his job performance. Conservative voters were happy with his job performance. No wonder Democrats hated him.
The Democratic political establishment had to move quickly to sabotage Pruitt’s aggressive deregulatory agenda, so they buried him in rumors of fiscal abuse and ethical controversy.
