Skip to comments.Donald Trump Taunts ‘Dishonest and Corrupt’ Media for Trying to Push Out Scott Pruitt
Posted on 04/06/2018 8:58:36 AM PDT by davikkm
President Donald Trump ridiculed the increasing slew of negative news about Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt. Do you believe that the Fake News Media is pushing hard on a story that I am going to replace A.G. Jeff Sessions with EPA Chief Scott Pruitt, who is doing a great job but is TOTALLY under siege? Trump asked. Do people really believe this stuff? So much of the media is dishonest and corrupt!
Pruitt is facing several media reports raising concerns of pursuing perks in office including travel, new office furniture, getting discounted rental fees at his D.C. condo, and forcing out some of his EPA critics.
On Thursday, Trump told reporters on Air Force One that he would look into the reports but was satisfied with Pruitts performance at the EPA.

Scott Pruitt is doing good work. He stays.
Trump plays the press like a fiddle.
Pruitt is doing a great job.
That’s why the left is so focused on getting rid of him.
Scott Pruitt is kicking down leftist hornet nests. Of course the leftists don’t like their ridiculous CAFE standards being kicked to the curb. Of course the left doesn’t like the dismantling of it’s incestuous relationship with the various EarthFirst type groups. It’s hardly surprising the hornets are now swarming and trying to take Pruitt down.
The EPA is corrupt and Pruitt is courageously cleaning it up after decades of abuse.
Ed Henry...you may want to rethink your obnoxious “reporting”.
Trump is nuts if he let’s the left run Pruitt off.
Pruitt is doing a great job
Trump knows hes draining the EPA swamp
“Facing several media reports”
Pruitt must be doing something right. The socialist-democrat media brownshirts are trying their hardest to oust this guy.
Yes, oust, because the MSM is a wholly owned subsidiary of the national socialist-democrats.
All of the left, and most of the right, live and die by their “reporting” aka: propaganda.
This fact isn’t lost on President Trump. It’s good to see him hit back at the MSM lackeys.
The media is powerless if nobody believes anything they say, or worse, are called out for what they really are.
I knew that President Trump was too smart to fall for the msm bullshit.
BTW, different subject, fox news ed henry needs to stick to Vegas hookers, because he can't do an interview.
The fat faced prick is so proud that he had Pruitt in a one on one that he tried to belittle him but only looked like david hogg.
What an ignorant ass.
One is not enough. I wish we had many more Scott Pruitts in DC.
Trump knows who is enemy is!
IF I had the chance to rent a room/bath to Scott Pruitt for $50 a night, as needed, I would jump at that.
Time to slide him over to Justice.
I wish he WOULD replace Sessions with Pruitt as AG.
Pruitt is effective.
Fortunately, you are not in charge of anything important
I’m thinking Pruitt will be gone by the end of the month. Trump is never more vocal in his support of someone than right before the axe falls.
Pruitt is doing precisely the business people elected Donald Trump to do.
CAFE standards have RUINED automobiles in America, particularly pickup trucks. Aluminum F150s? Those crappy Atkinson engines in Tacomas? Nobody wants that garbage! But the damn Obama administration is forced them down our throats under the ridiculous belief that pickup trucks should get 54 MPG.
If I wanted a gas-sipper, I'd get a Corolla. I need pickup trucks to be rugged and do work. That means big, thirsty engines!
Thank You Scott Pruitt! The Left hates this guy! That means he's doing a lot of things right!
This is so easy to explain.The Leftist/communists want to take everything you have built and worked for and give it to parasites using “democracy” because parasites far out number producing Americans. Their big strategy was to convince you that there was “global Warming” . That failed on its facts. So they changed to “climate change” but left off the definition and empirical data. They were ruining industry after industry and job after jog with exuberant gleefulness using the environmental protection agency as the Waffen SS . All of a sudden the arch nemeses of the “climate change” lie was the new head of the EPA— Scott Pruitt who had successfully attacked the EPA as Attorney General of Oklahoma and a brilliant pick for this gestapo. He implements the destruction of thousands of communist regulations, unleashes horizontal drilling and surges American into the world stage in Hydrocarbon production. Now do you understand why the press jumps on a $50 rented apartment and overlooks $135 million in bribes paid to hillary?
